Why the Subaru Forester’s turbo variant has been discontinued

The Subaru Forester XT is well-loved by automotive enthusiasts for a simple reason: It gives you the practicality and the off-road capabilities of an SUV, matched with Subaru’s turbo-boxer engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. In the Philippine market, where the Forester accounts for more than 50% of total Subaru sales, this particular variant makes up 30% of the Forester’s sales tally.
You could say it’s a niche product, but an extremely popular one—which explains why loyal owners and fans were not at all pleased when Subaru decided that the all-new Forester will no longer be available with a turbo option.
