introduced the Forester Airbreak
to the Japanese market today. Sporting a toned-down version of the front fascia that adorns the nifty Forester STi
and Forester Cross Sports S-Edition
, the Airbreak is available only with Subie's normally-aspirated 2.0L SOHC boxer and a 4-speed automatic tranny. AWD, of course, is standard.
The Airbreak package includes goodies like
- HDD Navigation
- Power glass moonroof
- 17" 5-spoke wheels
- Leather-trimmed seats with 8-way power adjustment on the driver's side
- Automatic air conditioning
- Special "Airbreak" badging
We're also fans of the aluminum-look low-profile roof rails, which appear to be de rigeur
on Japanese Foresters. The more aggressive front clip would be nice to have here as well. Alas, it's probably not to be. Bummer.
The Airbreak retails for ¥2,278,500 (around $19,800 by today's exchange rate).
