Only weeks after going on sale, Subaru is offering an exciting and extensive accessory range for its totally new Forester.
And with research showing SUV owners enjoy personalising their new car, there should soon be a variety of distinctive Foresters on UK roads.
Typical style-orientated accessories include a front under guard for £350, rear under guard for £275 and roof spoiler at £240.01.
Other items range from fog lamp mouldings for £35 to door mouldings at £195. Popular on the previous model was the stainless steel bumper protector at £85 and foldable cargo tray at £60. (All prices include VAT but exclude painting and fitting where appropriate.)
Other items include towbars and carpet mats and – like all Subaru-approved accessories – carry a full and comprehensive three-year warranty.
Based on the platform of the new Impreza and starting from £17,995 on-the-road, the new Forester features more passenger and luggage space plus a smoother ride and even more agile handling thanks to a new multi-link double-wishbone rear suspension.
Now closer in size to its Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 competitors, the new Forester is 75 mm longer, 45 mm wider and gains 110 mm in height.
Rear legroom grows by 95 mm, the driver’s eye-line is 30 mm higher, while the load space is now 450 litres with the rear seat up – 63 litres more than the previous model.
