Prior to its launch in Manila, Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of the Subaru brand in the Southeast Asian region, invited members of the motoring media to a ride and drive event in Thailand. The event was organized for the regional media to experience the refreshed Forester.
“Together with the launch of the Forester, Subaru is excited to roll-out a brand new campaign to highlight the traits of the Forester, an unstoppable vehicle that can turn any challenging terrain into an exciting adventure. The campaign name is “Is there anything you can’t do”, which reminds the people that they can achieve anything they have set their eyes on, and the Subaru Forester will accompany them throughout their adventure,” said Glenn Tan, Executive Director of Tan Chiong International Limited.
The 2016 version comes with a redesigned front end, tail lights and wheels, plus a refreshed cabin with a new premium head-unit and an LCD cluster display. Motor Image also organized a drive for the media which highlighted the X-mode, an onboard computer which coordinates throttle response, transmission and the S-AWD which aids the driver to safely drive through any difficult terrain.
Subaru designed the Forester as a go-anywhere SUV that can withstand any terrain or weather thrown at it. The development concept for the Forester has remained unchanged for nearly a decade, which is constantly being improved every year based on the requirements of adventure-loving customers,” adds Tan.
