Malaysia: Subaru Forester launched, Suzuki Swift Sport details emerge image

The fourth generation of the Subaru Forester has been recently launched in Malaysia, where the model will set you back for at least RM189, 800.

The new Subaru forester is getting ready to take on Malaysia. The model has been recently launched in the Asian country and even if the final prices haven’t been announced yet, the model has an introductory offer of RM189,800, for the sole variant, which is the CBU Forester 2.0 XT. The model is using a 2.0 liter direct injected turbocharged boxer engine, which is good for 240 PS and 350 Nm of torque. This is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 221 km/h. The Forester has AWD and a CVT transmission.

Besides the Subaru Forester, the Suzuki Swift Sport is also getting ready to take on Malaysia. The small popular hatchback will be launched later on this week, but this seems quite late considering the fact that it was officially unveiled back in 2011, during the Frankfurt Motor Show. The model will get a RM99,888 price for the 1.6MT and RM105,888 for the 1.6 CVT, both of them on the road, with insurance. Additional details on the Suzuki Swift Sport aimed towards Malaysia are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its launch.
