The Forester 2.0i-L GT Lite Edition comes with on-the-road price without insurance of RM163,788 for private registration in Peninsular Malaysia.
Aimed at drivers who want a sportier and more rugged look and the thrill of driving a stylish extraordinary SUV, the Forester GT Lite Edition offers add-ons such as the GT Full Body Kit and the 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.
TC Subaru introduced the Forester GT Edition for its EyeSight variant last year.
It was tailored specifically with Motor Image’s in-depth understanding of the market, designer Jack Kobayashi’s expertise, as well as engineering company Giken Co Ltd’s experience.
The Forester GT Edition was a hit among Subaru buyers.
TC Subaru country manager Eugene Tay said the company decided to introduce the new Forester GT Lite Edition following the success of the Forester GT Edition in Malaysia last year.
The Forester GT Lite Edition is dynamically designed for customers looking to purchase a large SUV, with a great track record for safety and reliability, with more cabin space and with a sporty, stylish façade.
"The GT Lite Edition 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,” Tay said.
The Forester GT Lite Edition comes with three Subaru Core Technologies – Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Boxer Engine and the Subaru Global Platform.
It also has more than 100 safety features including seven airbags, ring-shaped reinforcement frame, X-Mode, ground clearance of 220mm and auto-retracting safety pedals.
Available colours are Crystal White Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, Jasper Green Metallic, Horizon Blue Pearl, Sepia Bronze Metallic, Dark Grey Metallic and Crystal Black Silica.
