The Subaru Forester is certainly a very capable SUV, so much so that it is the star in a brand new commercial alongside America’s favourite family, The Simpsons.

In the 30-second ad, Homer Simpson has had enough of the unhealthy food sold at the Kwik-E-Mart, and decides to bring baby Maggie on a trip out of town for some healthier options. With both strapped in (one in a baby seat attached to the SUV’s Isofix mount), the Subaru Forester brings them across the difficult terrain in comical fashion.

Of course, the Forester’s 2.0 litre NA four-cylinder boxer engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system are certainly helpful to haul the health foods back to 742 Evergreen Terrace, complete with a mobile milk provider (aka a cow). For Homer Simpson and family at least, there’s nothing they can’t do with a Forester.

Away from the small screen, the Forester is available in Malaysia in three variants, with the 2.0i and 2.0i-P being CKD offerings, while the turbocharged 2.0 XT comes fully imported from Japan. The Forester can be had starting from a promotional price of RM119,190 (OTR without insurance).
