All-New Subaru Forester Launched In Malaysia – 3 Variants, From RM139,788

A week after its first public appearance at the Carlist.my Drive Auto Fair 2019, the all-new fifth-generation Subaru Forester was officially launched earlier today at the new and upgraded Subaru showroom in Petaling Jaya.

Offered in three variants, the price of the all-new Subaru Forester, which comes with a 5-year / 100,000 km warranty, is as mentioned below:
