Forester

Subaru's new Forester is about to enter the South African market and we have pricing info of the newcomer.

The Forester is a renowned SUV and like before the latest model features symmetrical all-wheel drive and horizontally-opposed Boxer powerplants.

Five models and two engine options will be available here, while there is the option of three specification levels.

Like before the new Forester shares its underpinnings with the Impreza. Furthermore the 2008 Forester is bigger all-round too and the vehicle is longer, wider and higher than its predecessor. A growth of 90 mm in the wheelbase and 45 mm in the door to door measure results in improved interior space.

The Forester also comes with a low-range transfer case for the normally-aspirated models with manual transmission.

The normally-aspirated 2.5-litre engine develops 126kW at 6000 r/min while power for the turbocharged derivative is 169kW at 5 200 r/min.
