TC Subaru Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in Malaysia has just launched the 2021 Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition in Malaysia. It is priced from RM 163,788 (on-the-road, without insurance).
As before, this C-segment SUV is imported (CBU) from Thailand. The Subaru Forester competes against other C-segment SUVs like the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, and Volkswagen Tiguan. If you want to stretch the range further, the Proton X70 is also part of this competitive set.
Based on the Forester 2.0i-L variant, the GT Lite Edition adds the GT body kit that consists of a front, side, and rear skirt. It also gets a unique GT muffler tip.
Inside, the Forester GT Lite Edition is identical to the regular Forester 2.0i-L. It bundles features such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment hooked up to a six-speaker audio system, leather upholstery, and 8-way power-adjustable driver and passenger seats.
Safety-wise, it gets seven airbags, stability control, traction control, and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The Subaru EyeSight ADAS suite isn’t available on this variant, but it does offer a 360-degree view monitor.
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.
Mr Eugene Tay, Country Manager of TC Subaru Sdn Bhd said, “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.”
