Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in Singapore, is treating Singapore Motorshow 2020 visitors to a variety of exciting displays and activities. Chief among them are the VISIV Adrenaline concept car, as well as the launch of the Forester e-BOXER hybrid, Forester GT Edition variant, and the Impreza facelift. The motor show is happening at Suntec Singapore from 9 to 12 January.
“We are proud to introduce three new Subaru models to Singapore – the Forester e-BOXER, Forester GT Edition and Impreza. Thanks to e-BOXER technology, the award-winning Forester now offers even smoother acceleration and better fuel efficiency. At the same time, those who feel that the Forester over the years has become a little sedate and mainstream will appreciate the GT Edition. With its sharpened design all around, we are positive the sporty and stylish Forester GT Edition will stand out wherever it goes,” said Mr Glenn Tan, Deputy Chairman and Managing Director of Tan Chong International Ltd. Tan Chong International Ltd owns the Motor Image Group of companies.
“With its styling upgrades, the new Impreza is even better looking than before. The addition of Sport and Intelligent driving modes also means it offers an improved driving experience,” added Mr Tan.
Subaru Forester e-BOXER and Forester GT Edition land in Singapore
The Subaru Forester e-BOXER is built with a self-charging, mild hybrid system that works with the Boxer engine. It combines battery-powered electric motor assistance with two of Subaru’s core technologies i.e. Boxer Engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. With the e-BOXER system, the Forester now offers smoother and more responsive acceleration, enhanced off-road capability and better efficiency. This makes it well suited for city and highway driving.
Due to the extra weight of the electric components, the Forester’s undercarriage has been strengthened to help maintain the driving feel and peace of mind offered by Subaru vehicles.
Besides this, Motor Image has also launched the Forester GT Edition. This is the second GT Edition model being offered in Singapore, with a special aero kit which has four well-made and well-designed integrated elements. This gives the car a more rugged and sportier look.
Both the Forester e-BOXER and Forester GT Edition are equipped with the new 8″ Display Audio System with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a 360° Around View Monitor (AVM) system, which enables drivers to park and manoeuvre with ease.
New Subaru Impreza showcased
The 2020 Subaru Impreza has been updated with improved styling, convenience and mechanical upgrades. It now sports a revised front and rear fascia inclusive of new LED headlamps and blacked-out tail lamps (on the 5-Door hatchback), new 17″ wheels, Speed Sensitive Door Lock and Rear Seat Reminder feature, as well as a newly added SI-DRIVE function and retuned suspension.
Special SUBARU VIZIV ADRENALINE CONCEPT display
Also at the Subaru booth is the SUBARU VIZIV ADRENALINE CONCEPT that was first unveiled at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show in March 2019. The VIZIV name is inspired by the phrase “Vision for Innovation”.
The VIZIV ADRENALINE CONCEPT is the first concept vehicle designed under Subaru’s new “BOLDER” design philosophy. The body shape shows off a dynamic and strong feel and features a unique roof design. White accents on the wheels and rugged all-terrain tyres also emphasise its adventurous nature and express the toughness and agility of the VIZIV ADRENALINE CONCEPT.
Through the new “BOLDER” design philosophy, Subaru aims to broaden the brand’s outlook, to define the characteristics of Subaru vehicles more prominently, and create more enjoyment for the driver as well as passengers.
Witness Russ Swift’s world-class precision driving display
Russ Swift is once again collaborating with Motor Image to thrill visitors of the motor show by power-sliding, two-wheeling and making other ambitious manoeuvres using a Subaru vehicle.
