More from Sydney, this time from Subaru. Making its world debut at the Australian International Motor Show is a Forester concept called the S-Edition, which offers strong clues to a possible new variant next year.
The S-Edition builds on the existing Forester XT, but its turbocharged 2.5 litre engine offers 259 hp. a jump up from the 227 hp available from the XT. Torque is up too on this one, with 347Nm to the XT’s 320Nm.
Additions to the Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) All-Wheel Drive vehicle include a revised sport suspension, paddleshifters accompanying the five-speed auto gearbox, 17-inch high lustre alloy STI wheels and unique styling accents, including of course S-Edition badging.
Inside, new to the kit list are drilled alloy pedals, new Alcantara seat trim bearing S-Edition logos as well as luminescent instruments with a centre design unique to the model.
Gallery after the jump.
