New Subaru Car Finally Launched Next Month, What Model?

 Subaru Indonesia is finally ready to release a new product for the Indonesian market. This new model will be the first to be marketed by Plaza Subaru as Subaru's APM (brand holder agent) in Indonesia, before being followed by many other models.



The new model was shown through a teaser photo that was displayed when holding an iftar event with the media on Wednesday (20/4) yesterday. The figure that only shows the LED line of the headlights is very characteristic of the latest Subaru Forester model. Not surprisingly, considering that the global automotive market trend is still pivoting on the SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) model.

The teaser which refers to the latest Forester has also been uploaded by Subaru through the official social media Instagram @subaru.indonesia. It is clearly stated in the short video that the model in question will be of the type and enliven the SUV market. The launch schedule for the first new model has been determined for the 2nd quarter of this year. Even the date has been revealed, which is launched on May 18, 2022.

"What is clear is that until now our preparations to launch the latest product in the second quarter are still on track as planned. Today, too, we will first share a little more information about the product and launch date, which we will launch in the not too distant future,” said Arie Christopher, COO of Subaru Indonesia.

Arie further explained that this new model has gone through a test stage, aka a test drive of 20,000 kilometers in preparation for greeting the Indonesian market. The test went through various criteria to the endurance test required by the relevant government agency, he said. This is to make this new product meet market expectations.

Questioning the Forester itself, the model that will be launched is the fifth generation with the SK body code. It has been circulating since 2018. Of course, what will be launched here is the facelift version that Subaru has provided for the 2022 model year. Its form is slightly visible from the LED DRL silhouette on the teaser accompanied by the fog lamp luminescence which is sufficient to display the boxy body shape typical of an SUV.


To be sure, Subaru products will feature its signature technology, namely the Boxer engine and the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) drive system. There are three engine options, namely 1.8 liter turbo (CB18), 2.0 liter (FB20), and 2.5 liter (FB25). They are all petrol engines and are mated to a Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.

The latest Forester has also carried a series of standard safety technologies that are packaged as Eyesight Driver Assist Technology. Some of the safety features include the Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. Can detect when the driver lost focus or sleepy on the way. This system can even recognize five different driver profiles, to be able to adjust the seat position, mirrors, and AC settings.
