TS Special Edition Subaru Forester for Sale From June
If you are considering a Subaru Forester for sale, you may be interested to know that the TS special edition will be available from June. This limited edition model will be priced from $54,990 plus on the road costs, but this new Subaru Forester is sure to be a hit with collectors and enthusiasts.
The Subaru Forester TS:
The STi tuned TS was revealed in 2014 for sale in the Japanese market. However, during the international launch of the Levorg wagon, it was revealed that the model would be offered on the Australian market for a limited time, with a limited number of 300.
For this powered up and sports tuned Subaru Forester, Perth driver should expect to pay a premium. The price tag attached to this limited edition is $7,000 more than the top of the line standard Forester XT Premium.
The local TS will share the four cylinder, turbocharged 2.0 litre engine used on the XT. This offers 177 kW of power, which is less than the 206 kW unit offered in the Japanese market edition. However, this output difference does not appear to have dulled local interest.
According to Nick Senior, managing director of Subaru Australia, when the TS was flagged late in 2015, the number of customer enquiries was unprecedented. This has left the company already wishing that they had reserved more than the 300 allocated. Senior claims that arguable, the TS is the only genuine sports SUV available for under $80,000. He is confident that with the retained value offered by a Subaru and the rarity of this limited edition, the TS could become a pioneering collectible SUV.
So, how does the TS stand apart from the standard Subaru Forester for sale? The main difference is the STI specific handling and stylistic adjustments, which total 28 unique changes to the SUV. The TS is based on the recently updated Forester and offers $12,000 in additional features value. The changes include STi badging on the black front grille and rear. There is also a variety of STi components including rear subframe support, front and rear draw stiffeners, front flexible tower bar, front spoiler and stabiliser bushings. The model also features STi tuned front inverted dampers, STi tuned Cherry Red coil springs, Brembo brakes, Enkei 19 inch alloys and Black Crystal Silica roof spoiler and door mirror covers. The final exterior styling touch is the Cherry Red stripe on the rear bumper and front grille.
Inside the TS, you will find STi logos on the instrument gauge, gear knob, leather trimmed steering wheel and seat trim embroidery. There is also red stitching detailing on the centre console and door trims. Red coloured accents also accentuate the push button start and heater control panel.
