Subaru has revealed the Forester tS for the Japanese market.
On the outside it sports new spoilers front and rear, an STI grille and 19-inch alloy wheels. The ride height has also been lowered by 15mm, thanks to a new sporty suspension.
Interior wise it has new leather, red contrast stitching and carbon fibre trim inserts.
It’s powered by a 2,0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain, mated to a CVT transmission. The engine pushes out an impressive 206kW and 350Nm of torque, which means the tS should be able to outrun most of the hot hatches out there.
The Forester tS is unlikely to make an appearance in SA. Only 300 will be built and they’ll likely be scooped up within a few weeks in Japan.
