First look at the all-new Forester
It seems like Subaru can't keep its fans buzzing about its upcoming models. Last month, photos of the Subaru WRX TR were leaked ahead of its debut at the Subiefest event. Now, another set of leaked images has surfaced on the internet.
This time though, it's the all-new Subaru Forester's turn, giving us a first look at the sixth-generation model. Much like the all-new Crosstrek, the Outback, and the WRX, the all-new Forester shows more of an evolution rather than a revolution when it comes to styling.
The front clip gets a wider grille and gives the impression that it's bonded together with the headlights that also feature a new LED light signature. As with other Subarus, the all-new Forester gets its own dose of thicker plastic cladding for the front and rear bumper, the rocker panel, and its fenders.
On the side, the slightly angular beltline of the fifth-generation model has been replaced with a flatter shape, making it look more upright. The black strips on the A-pillar and D-pillar are an added touch to give the illusion of a floating roofline.
The lobster claw-shaped taillights have also been replaced by a more conventional-shaped design, with clear lenses and a black horizontal strip on the tailgate for good measure. Lastly, the leaked photos of the Forester show the Sport variant getting new-look alloy wheels that are painted in bronze.
Inside, the all-new Forester has a portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system dominating the dashboard, with fewer buttons to show. It also appears to have multiple USB ports in front, as well as what looks like a wireless charging pad. The leaked photo also appears to show Subaru retained analog dials for the gauge cluster.
Meanwhile, powertrain details are yet to surface, but it's more than likely the Forester will continue to have a choice of naturally aspirated 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter boxer-four engines, along with a 2.0-liter eBoxer hybrid option. All of these engines will depend on the market the Forester is being offered in.
More details shall be available once Subaru officially reveals the all-new Forester on November 17 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
