The supremely popular Subaru Forester has been a top pick for Kiwi families as one of the most capable mid-sized SUVs on the market, winning New Zealand Car of the Year in 2019.
In September Armstrong’s will welcome the refreshed 2022 Subaru Forester to its Subaru dealerships in Lower Hutt and Christchurch.
The award-winning SUV’s front end has been refreshed with revised headlights, fog lights, front bumper, and grille treatment.
Subaru of New Zealand’s Managing Director Wallis Dumper says the 2022 Forester is simply more of a good thing.
“Over the years we’ve watched our capable Forester climb the sales ranks and after the game-changing, new generation was launched in 2018, its sales ascended close to our top-selling Subaru Outback.”
Subaru will offer a five model Forester line-up, which includes the self-titled Forester, X Sport, Premium, e-Boxer Hybrid and Premium e-Boxer Hybrid variants.
Subaru have added even more features to the Forester’s existing suite of impressive driving aids.
Added to Forester’s suite of EyeSight® features are:
The 2022 Forester also boasts improved technology further enhancing its off-road capabilities.
Retuned front suspension coil springs and dampers improve ride comfort, steering responsiveness, and handling, while the new aluminium engine mount bracket reduces vibrations and noise.
For more challenging All-Wheel Drive terrain, X-Mode is also revised, with the ability to automatically re-engage once the vehicle speed drops to 35 km/h or less, while revised Hill Descent Control improves vehicle control speed.
