Australians have been waiting to import Subaru Forester turbo models for a LONG time, ever since the Forester was unceremoniously deleted from the old SEVS list over 15 years ago (after initially being approved and a handful imported).

We are now very close to being able to import the Forester to Australia on demand but we still have a few more months to wait as inclusion in this list is just the first step to importing one of these vehicles – a compliance package must now be approved and a ‘sample’ vehicle imported before mainstream import becomes possible.

This process typically takes another 3 to 6 months after the initial model approval and needs to be managed by an approved compliance workshop.

But on popular models you will need to get in quick !
