2020 Subaru Forester long waits for fifth-generation of the model, that manufacturer should offer for the next year. We have reasons to believe that they are planning to change something after three long years of this version existence. However, they are planning to make this model as unique and improved, with numerous recognizable details, but also the futuristic design of the cabin.
- Strong and aggressive modern look of the car will surely attract attention.
- New hybrid engine with the much longer distance that will be traveled pure electric.
- Design of the car is actually not much original among crossovers in the class.
- The cabin looks a little smaller than it is usual for crossovers.
We are not sure how the new 2020 Subaru Forester will look like, but we expect significant changes in design. The car should come with the redesigned front end, wide and impressive gridded chromatic grille and new LED front lights. In order to make the car more aggressive, they could use new bumpers and details, like metallic protections on the bottom. The manufacturer also should offer a new color pallet.
2020 Subaru Forester should come as redesigned inside, with many improved features and futuristic design of the cabin. Some fans expect a completely digital dashboard, with a large touchscreen in the middle and new devices and commands. The manufacturer invested a lot in safety system, including autopilot and airbags, with electric assistance. Higher trims should have leather and chrome in details.
The most interesting news about 2020 Subaru Forester is that it will have a hybrid engine together with improved petrol unit. There are high chances that it will be 2.5-liter that produces 170 horsepower in the base model, while the higher trim could have 2.0-liter with 240 horsepower of strength. However, this stronger version should be paired with a hybrid unit which will be able to be driven on pure electric on long distance. It is possible that this model gets closer to Toyota Highlander or RAV4, or even Lexus RX with efficiency. Whatever it is, the engine should be paired with six-speed automatic transmission and could be offered as an all-wheel driving system.
2020 Subaru Forester Release Date and Price
Being a hybrid model, 2020 Subaru Forester will be attractive to the buyers of these special types of cars, so we expect strong competition between Forester and Lexus RX Hybrid, Toyota Highlander and RAV4, and Nissan Rogue Hybrid. The price $21,000 for the base model surely helps to the model to be even more competitive, while the design of the car attracts younger and sports car’s fans. However, the car will first be offered on the Russian market, and when that happens the price could be for 20-30% higher.
