Subaru Advances Forester Line-Up


2007 Subaru Forester

4th August, 2006

Subaru has expanded its 2007 model year Forester range with the addition of new features for Forester XS and XT.

A factory-fitted rear roof spoiler and tinted UV glass on the rear passenger, quarter and back windows have been added to all XS and XT models.

Forester XS and XT also retain Luxury variants that comprise leather trim and a factory-fitted sunroof.

XS and XT Luxury also offer a Sat Nav option.

Both the XS and XT feature upgraded radios that scan for stronger frequencies, resulting in clearer reception.

Two new colours have been added – Urban Grey Metallic and Newport Blue Pearl - and all Foresters offer a choice of grey or beige interior trim.

Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia said: “The popularity of the Forester continues to defy the normal model lifecycle and is consistently one of our strongest selling vehicles."

“Recently it was named the safest used vehicle in a 17 year study conducted by Monash University and it continues to dominate retained values rankings in the compact SUV segment."

“We’ve added even more specification to the MY07 line-up which is sure to attract new buyers who are looking for fantastic value as well as a five star ANCAP crashworthiness rating for occupant safety and excellent resale values.”
