Subaru Forester Special Edition revealed
New Special Edition version of Subaru Forester SUV gets host of extra kit
The new Special Edition version adds Hunter Green Metallic Paint, front, side and rear underguards, wheelarch extensions and a stainless steel cargo step panel.
On the inside there's brown leather seats, accompanied by brown leather upholstery on the doors and around the cabin. Tech includes a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, sat-nav and Hill Descent Control.
Subaru's X-Mode system also features on the Special Edition, which manages the car’s power, torque, brakes and drivetrain to maintain traction on slippery surfaces. The car's off-roading capabilities are further improved by 220mm of ground clearance and short overhangs to negotiate steep approach and departure angles.
The Special Edition will have the XC model’s 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine, producing 145bhp for a 0-60mph time of 10.2 seconds. The car manages 49.6mpg and emits 148g/km of CO2.
The Forester Special Edition goes on sale from the 1st of September, with just 100 units going on sale. The price for the petrol Lineartronic begins at £29,995, with the diesel costing from £31,495. It is based on the XC Premium model and Subaru says it features an additional £1,500 worth of equipment for no extra cost. Both models come with Subaru’s five year, 100,000-mile warranty.
