The 2021 Subaru Forester X Sport has that extra X-factor
Subaru’s new Forester X Sport has got that special X-factor that helps you get from A to X, with the sleek, high specification SUV going the extra mile.
This extraordinary Forester has a host of aesthetic features, including the head-turning orange accents – inside and out – and new 18” black alloy wheels. On the exterior the Forester X Sport’s front, side, rear under guard and roof rails all get the orange treatment, while on the interior, the orange features extend to the trim stitching.
Subaru of New Zealand’s Managing Director Wallis Dumper believes the Forester X Sport will attract a broad range of buyers from the traditional Subaru purchaser, to those that may not have considered a Subaru before and are looking for a distinctive SUV.
“The Forester X Sport is a capable SUV with performance aesthetics. This winning combination of both style and substance will no doubt appeal, particularly to those that require the practicality of an SUV and are shopping for something sporty that sets them apart from the crowd,” he says.
Forester X Sport does its best to exceed expectations by adding many premium specifications, including an 8” touch screen infotainment system, satellite navigation and push button start. Water repellent seat fabric also adds to the special nature of this vehicle.
Along with these additions, the Forester X Sport retains all the Subaru capabilities essential to its DNA. They include the brand’s All-Wheel Drive engineering prowess and X-Mode, which improves traction and handling, especially when driving on low-grip surfaces, like mud or snow.
All the Subaru safety expertise, such as Subaru’s EyeSight clever crash avoidance technology is on-board Forester X Sport - acting like your second pair of eyes and spotting potentially dangerous driving situations. There’s also the excellent Driver Monitoring System, which uses facial recognition to identify, personalise and monitor you while you drive.
For those owners who want to haul a whole lot extra, the towing capacity has increased by 300kg to 1800kg braked in all Forester models, excluding the e-Boxer Hybrid.
Forester X Sport is powered by a 2.5-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection Boxer engine and driven via a lineartronic™ SLT 7-speed with manual mode. Its maximum power output is 136kW @ 5800rpm and has a maximum torque of 239Nm @ 4400rpm.
Mr Dumper continues: “Our All-Wheel Drive Subaru Forester X Sport gives its owners the extra option of going a whole lot further than just from A to B. It takes Kiwis well and truly into Subaru country - over rolling mountains, down weaving roads, and along endless coastlines, all the way to X. Wherever that special spot in New Zealand might be!”
New to the Forester line up, the Forester X Sport is available in six colours and exclusively in Dark Blue Pearl.
