TC Subaru Sdn Bhd has introduced the Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition, aimed at those who want a sportier and more rugged looking version of the Forester 2.0i-L. The Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition is priced at RM163,788 on the road without insurance.
With the introduction of the Forester GT Lite Edition, the total number of variants for the Subaru Forester now stands at five:
- Subaru Forester 2.0i-L – RM149,788
- Subaru Forester 2.0i-S – RM159,788
- Subaru Forester 2.0i-L GT Lite Edition – RM163,788
- Subaru Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight – RM169,788
- Subaru Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight GT – RM177,788
Among the unique features fitted on the Forester GT Lite Edition includes a GT body kit as well as a GT Exhaust cutter. Completing the equipment package of the Forester GT Lite Edition is an 8-inch Display Audio System and a 360° Around View Monitor System, which enables drivers to park and manoeuvre with ease.
No mechanical enhancements
Mechanically, the newly launched model is identical to the Forester 2.0i-L which is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre flat-four direct-injection petrol engine, mated to a Lineartronic CVT and Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. The powertrain is capable of delivering 156 PS and 196 Nm of torque, enabling the SUV to achieve a top speed of 193 km/h.
Further complementing the mechanical package are features like the Subaru Intelligent Drive system that lets you choose between Intelligent and Sport modes, Hill Descent Control function, Active Torque Vectoring, and an X-Mode system with Snow and Dirt driving modes.
That being said, the Subaru Forester GT Lite will sit beneath the Forester GT which was launched last year. Following the success of the Forester GT Edition last year, TC Subaru has now introduced the Forester GT Lite for those who want a Forester that looks slightly less aggressive than the Forester GT, but bolder than the regular Forester.
The GT Lite Edition also comes equipped with Subaru’s top-of-the-line safety features, and is competitively priced below the popular GT edition. It is an example of how we are constantly offering more choice for our customers,” said Mr Eugene Tay, Country Manager, TC Subaru Sdn Bhd.
The Forester GT Lite Edition comes with three Subaru Core Technologies – Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Boxer Engine and the Subaru Global Platform. The extraordinary SUV comes with more than 100 safety features including seven airbags, ringshaped reinforcement frame, X-Mode, ground clearance of 220mm and auto-retracting safety pedals.
Available for order The Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition is offered in seven colours – Crystal White Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, Jasper Green Metallic, Horizon Blue Pearl, Sepia Bronze Metallic, Dark Grey Metallic and Crystal Black Silica.READ MORE +
