Subaru's third-generation award-winning cross-over SUV arrives on our shores, and its affordable pricing is set to entice local buyers

Fresh from a complete redesign, this handsome new model boasts a bolder and sleeker design while all the features that won its predecessors international acclaim have been retained and enhanced. Improvements in design and comfort allow for a far more luxurious drive while exacting demands on safety, quality and capability make the all-new Forester the epitome of form and function.

Since its initial launch in 1997, Subaru's Forester series has earned accolades across the globe as a cross-over SUV that combines passenger car comfort and safety with even greater adaptability and functionality. Built upon its predecessor's reputation as an icon of safety, dependability and versatility, the completely redesigned Subaru Forester now boasts increased space and comfort.

"When Subaru launched the Forester 11 years ago, it redefined the industry. Here was a vehicle that defied all labels and definitions, enhancing the comfort and safety of cars with greater function and capability. It has since become an icon of safety, dependability and versatility", said Glenn Tan, Group Chief Executive, Motor Image Enterprises.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
