Here we have the 2014 Subaru Forester


Now we have the opportunity to show you the first images of the new compact crossover Subaru Forester, after lots of scans from the Japanese Domestic Market brochure. At a first look we can see that the carmaker tried not to change a lot in comparison with the current model, but even so, its design it is a more modern one. The most obvious elements are the prominent wheel arches and the heavily sculpted door sills, new door mounted mirrors and the addition of a small quarter window up front. In terms of interior we found out different things from the brochure. Apparently the model borrows a lot of elements from the XV and Impreza models. The carmaker used the Impreza platform to build this new Subaru Forester. The current Forester is a bit smaller than the new one as the 2014 car measures 4.595 mm in length, 1.795 mm in height and 1.695 mm in width. The wheelbase measures 2.640mm. The rear passengers now have more space making them feel more comfortable. The load area has 505 liters which is a lot bigger than the current version, which has a 450 liters capacity. In terms of engine, the Japanese customers will offer buyers two gasoline engines. The first one is a 2.0-liter one capable of developing 146 horsepower which will transfer the output to the wheels through a 6-speed stick shift or a CVT. The second variant is a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged flat four capable of generating 276 horsepower mated only to a CVT. The options available for other regions were not made public, but chances are the North American market will receive the new 2.5-liter flat four capable of producing 174 lb. ft. of torque. The Europeans might receive a 2.0-liter petrol and diesel boxer units with a 150 horsepower output. The new Subaru Forester will be delivered to Japan before the end of next month and the rest of the world will receive it sometime next year. carscoop.blogspot
