All-new Subaru Forester with Eyesight to be available in Malaysia by mid next year


Speaking to the Managing Director of Tan Chong International, Glenn Tan, shortly after the regional launch of the all-new Subaru Forester, we were told that it will only be introduced in Q2 of 2019.

Three variants will be available, with EyeSight only available a few months after the initial introduction of the all-new AWD SUV. We’re also told that the Malaysian models will not be too different from the Taiwanese-spec Foresters in the video below – so the powered sunroof could be a possibility!

When EyeSight is available for the local Foresters, it will only be limited to the top variants. Subaru recently launched the fully-imported Subaru Outback, the first to feature EyeSight in Malaysia and with the Forester now following suit.

As for the Subaru XV, you’ll just need to be a little more patient as the EyeSight driver assistance system is expected to be available for the crossover, only in 2020.

The all-new Subaru Forester is powered by a 2.0-litre Boxer engine making 156 hp and 196 Nm of torque, paired with a 7-speed Lineartronic CVT and Subaru’s Symmetrical All-wheel Drive system.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
