The New Subaru Forester Will Debut At The End Of March
The first teaser of a new generation of the versatile all-wheel drive Subaru Forester SUV has been published. Its official debut will take place at the Auto Show in New York on March 28, 2018. Details about the new vehicle are not still unveiled.
The image shows a rear part with C-shaped lamps. Some similarity with the Viziv Future Concept shown in 2015 is observed.
It is known the model is based on the the Subaru Global Platform, which the latest versions of the Subaru Ascent, Impreza and XV got too.
We haven’t known yet what the powertrain will be. Perhaps, the motors will remain the same, but with improved fuel consumption and emissions level. The variant with a hybrid system is not excluded.
The model of the latest fourth generation was released in 2012, and its restyled modification was presented in October 2015 at the Tokyo Auto Show.
In Europe the current version of the Subaru Forester is offered with horizontally opposed petrol 2.0- and 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engines and a 6-speed manual transmission or a Lineartronic CVT, in combination with a symmetrical AWD system.
