The official launch of the new generation of Subaru Forester will take place at the New York Motor Show in New York. However, Japanese editions published photos of the model. Judging by the images, the new Forester will get the same main optics as his Outback mate. The car will retain a familiar radiator grille on which the Subaru logo is placed and will also be equipped with upgraded bumpers and new rear lights.
Technical details of the model are missing, but it is known that it is built on the new global platform of the Japanese manufacturer – SGP. It is also the basis for the new generations of the Ascent and Impreza models.
According to preliminary information, a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a FB20 index (soft hybrid), which will work in combination with a starter generator and a battery pack, will enter the model range. There will also be a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated FB25 petrol engine developing 175 hp.
The new Subaru Forester’s equipment will feature adaptive cruise control, descent belt system, circular video surveillance, blind zone control, and more.
