TAS 2019: Subaru Forester Advance Sport Concept

This is the Subaru Forester Advance Sport Concept, which recently made its debut at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. Based on the Forester e-Boxer sold in Japan, the show car serves as a good reference point for those looking to modify their new SK-generation Forester when it eventually makes its way to Malaysia.

In terms of aesthetic enhancements, the concept comes with new bumpers, front dive planes, side skirts, 19-inch wheels, a revised grille with honeycomb meshing, and a ‘Fighter Grey’ exterior paint finish. Yellow accents are applied to various parts of the exterior as well for some contrast, and this trend is carried into the cabin.

Aside from tinges of yellow, the cabin also gets completely new upholstery to create a vibrant space. The uniform colour scheme is applied to almost every part of the interior, including the steering wheel, door cards, dashboard, centre console storage lid and other trim pieces.

Unsurprisingly, the concept comes with a generous amount of STI badging to complete the look. For better stopping power, the Forester gets a set of Brembo monoblock six-piston calipers at the front, with cross-drilled rotors.
