Subaru Forester revealed at the Detroit Motor Show

Debuting at the Detroit Motor Show, Subaru takes the wraps officially off its new Forester. Bigger than before featuring an increased ride height, now it`s more compact SUV model than crossover estate, targeting models like RAV4 from Toyota and CR-V made by Honda.

The Forester has the same chassis like the brand new Impreza, boasting four-wheel drive full-time plus a limited-slip differential, with SI-Drive – allowing a choice of three distinct drivetrain modes. It’s powered by two 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘boxer’ flat petrol engines, having a diesel that’s due in September. Prices begin at £18,000.
