A few images of what appears to be the new Subaru Forester have made their way onto the web. The images are reportedly from the Forester's Japanese market brochure.

The Forester's exterior is now in line with the rest of the Subaru lineup thanks to a new front end , sleeker taillights, and a new sculpted hatch. The interior is lifted form the new Impreza.

Under the new skin lies a new platform from the new Impreza. Dimension wise, the Forester has grown in most areas, while retaining a 103 in. wheelbase.

Power for the Japanese market Forester will come in the form of 2.0L boxer-four producing 146 HP and a 2.0L turbo boxer-four producing 276 HP. As for the North American market, the engine could be the 2.5L boxer-four producing 173 HP.

The new Forester is expected to be revealed sometime later this year, with sales beginning sometime in 2013.

Probably the best looking version of the forester from these pictures. Still a station wagon and still seems small to me.

The Subaru crowd will like it though.

I like it. It's a huge improvement over the existing Forester, and not as choppy looking as the Impreza.
