It’s hard to believe that the oldest car in Subaru’s lineup is the Forester. Introduced back 2008, the Forester now holds the title of oldest Subaru vehicle in production. Subaru though will be rectifying that within the next year or so.
Spy shots of a heavily camouflaged Subaru Forester were released this week showing Subaru is hard at work on the next generation.
We can’t tell much about design, but we can tell what the car is riding on. The new Forester will use the new Impreza’s platform, albeit with a bit more ground clearance. Engines will likely be the new 2.5L FB-series flat-four, possibly with direct-injection and a turbocharged four.
Inside, the Forester lifts the new Impreza’s interior; from the three-dial HVAC setup and the radio or optional Infotainment system sitiing above.
We’ll likely see the new Forester sometime next year as a 2014 model.
