Extra kit added to lure buyers
24 July 2009

A special-edition Subaru Forester has been launched.

The Subaru Forester 2.0D SureTrak is on sale now, and adds rear privacy glass, full leather trim, rear parking sensors, electric folding door mirrors, front and rear underguards and a redesigned instrument cluster to the standard kit on a 2.0D XC.

Standard equipment on 2.0D XC models includes climate control, heated front seats, an electric sunroof, xenon headlamps, stability control and eight airbags.

Only two colour schemes are available: dark grey metallic paintwork with platinum leather interior, or spark silver metallic paint with a black leather interior. Both versions have silver exterior trim.

The SureTrak has additional suspension tweaks over the current Forester range, with stiffer settings designed to provide sharper handling. The same changes will apply to all 2010 model-year Foresters, which are available to order now.

The Subaru Forester 2.0D SureTrak costs £25,965.

Subaru says the extra kit is worth £3960, but the SureTrak costs £2935 more than the 2.0D XC model on which it is based.
