Subaru Forester and Impreza Models with Subaru Boxer Diesel to be Unveiled in Paris

Tokyo, September 5, 2008 – Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, today announced that it will exhibit its Forester and Impreza models equipped with Subaru Boxer Diesel at the Mondiale de l’Automobile (Paris Motor Show), which will open its doors to the public from October 4 through 19, 2008 (press days on October 2 and 3). The Forester 2.0D and Impreza 2.0D models will be on sale in Europe after this autumn. In addition to the Legacy and Outback models, already available with the Boxer Diesel, Subaru has strengthened its diesel model lineup to meet a wider array of customers’ needs in the European market. FHI will also display the R1e and G4e Concept, prototype electric vehicles, to provide a glimpse into FHI’s environmental technologies.

A press conference is scheduled to be held at the Subaru booth at 17:00 on October 2.

1. Subaru Forester 2.0D and Impreza 2.0D
The Subaru Boxer Diesel has garnered enthusiastic accolades since it became available in both the Legacy and Outback for the European market in the spring of 2008. Now mounted on the Forester and Impreza, the new and improved Boxer Diesel has adopted the closed-type DPF (diesel particulate filter), and comes with a newly developed six-speed manual transmission, further improving the vehicles’ fuel economy and emission control.

Impreza 2.0D
The Impreza incorporates three core Subaru values: sophisticated styling; useful and convenient packaging; and a quality ride. Now with the addition of the Subaru Boxer Diesel, the six-speed manual transmission, and a finely tuned suspension, the 5-door hatchback Impreza 2.0D model offers agile and sporty drivability, comfort and advanced safety, along with environmental features.

Subaru Boxer Diesel
The Subaru Boxer Diesel is characterized by compactness and low weight, which are enabled by the high rigidity afforded by the Horizontally-Opposed engine design and through the use of an aluminum alloy cylinder block. Another key feature is its quietness, made possible by the layout of the opposed pistons that cancel out inertia forces and create smooth rotations, which, as a result, reduces vibrations. On top of this, the Subaru Boxer Diesel delivers excellent acceleration response, enabling sporty driving while offering outstanding fuel economy with reduced emissions.
