This particular car, for those who may not be aware, is a very rare car. Only 150 Subaru Forester 2.0X were ever imported to India. This car is one of them.

General Motors (GM) entered into an agreement with Fuji Heavy Industries, the parent company of Subaru, to market the Subaru Forester under the Chevrolet brand in India. This particular move was done by the company to expand GM’s portfolio in India.

The Chevrolet Forester was launched in India in 2003, and it was positioned as a premium SUV. It was designed to compete with other popular SUVs of the time. However, despite its positive reception, the Chevrolet Forester faced significant market challenges. At the time, it was launched at a high price point, which limited the sales.

Features and Specifications

The Chevrolet Forester, which was launched in India, came powered by a 2.0-liter EJ20 boxer engine. This motor generated a maximum power of 137 bhp and 184 Nm of torque. It came coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission. Here is a wildly modified Subaru Forester.
