Subaru Forester STI could be revealed at Sydney Show

Subaru Forester STI could be revealed at Sydney Show

The Sydney Motor Show is ready to kick into gear next week and much of the rumour and anticipation before the event is being directed at the Subaru stand.

The Aussie motoring press are getting all ‘fair dinkum’ excited about Subaru who may or may not be bringing a new sporty SUV to the show. Many expect that this vehicle will arrive in the form of a Forester STI which is big news for Subaru fans on both sides of the ditch.

The Forester STI should get a significant jump in power over the rather vanilla Forester currently on sale here in NZ with estimates that it could receive as much as 230kW under the bonnet. That’s more than the Kiwi-spec WRX STI.

The Japanese domestic market has seen a Forester STI, but it was based on the previous version of the model, and sold only there. That version of the Forester STI uses the same engine as the Impreza.

Little else is known about the Forester STI, except for Subaru to state that it could be sold in global markets. Check back as we’ll have more details on the mysterious performance version Subaru Forester STI as soon as they become available.
