Subaru (Fuji Heavy Industries) displayed the STI-tuned Forester tS at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon held from January 9th until the 11th. Production of the Forester tS will be limited to 300 units only.
The Forester tS is a special edition model tuned with parts by Subaru Technical International (STI). It was just launched on November 25, 2014, but sales have been discontinued because reservations for the it had already reached 300 units by January 2015.
With the dedicated tuning by STI, it has better throttle response and is more linearly responsive. The car is mounted with specially tuned front and rear suspension, brake systems by Brembo, and forged 19-inch wheels from BBS.
It also has a dedicated engine control unit (ECU) and dedicated transmission control unit (TCU). The S# mode improves the accelerator response.
The front and rear under spoilers, roof spoiler, silver fog light bezels, and leather-wrapped steering wheel give it a sporty and a first-rate feel.
