Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition Launched In Malaysia
The Subaru Forester GT Edition, but with less equipment and a lower price.
It was the complete package, but the pricing may have been just a little too high for most customers. So now they’ve responded with the Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition.
This variant omits some features on the full Forester GT Edition in order to hit a price tag of RM163,788. Customers will still get the GT Full Body Kit and GT Exhaust cutter, 8″ Display Audio System and 360° Around View Monitor System.
However, the added advanced driver assist system from the EyeSight stereo camera system has been omitted. It also looks as if Subaru has given the GT Lite Edition the stock rims, which are measure 18″ across, just like they do on the full GT Edition Forester.
7 Colours are available for this vehicle:
- Crystal White Pearl
- Ice Silver Metallic
- Jasper Green Metallic
- Horizon Blue Pearl
- Sepia Bronze Metallic
- Dark Grey Metallic
- Crystal Black Silica
The Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition should be in Subaru showrooms nationwide, but book your appointment to view it.
Here’s the press release with more.
TC Subaru Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in Malaysia, is proud to introduce the Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition. 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 Giken’s experience. The convention defying Forester GT Edition was a hit among Subaru buyers.
“Following the success of the Forester GT Edition last year, I am proud to introduce the new Forester GT Lite Edition to Malaysia. 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,” 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, ring-shaped reinforcement frame, X-Mode, ground clearance of 220mm and auto-retracting safety pedals.
