Images of the next-generation Subaru Forester surfaced online a few days ago, and now they have officially been confirmed as the real thing, so here it is:
The Forester has never been a car to challenge design conventions and as Subaru Australia’s best selling model, the new one follows the same formula.
From the little information available, the new Forester is expected to go on sale for a tad higher than the current $31,990 entry price.
Subaru Australia will continue the XT (formerly GT) tradition with a new turbo-model powered by the 2.5-litre WRX engine.
If you remember, last year we talked about the Subaru building a diesel boxer engine, well now it’s here. The 2008 Forester will début in Europe with the world’s first diesel boxer engine, a 2.0-litre with roughly 110kW and 320Nm of torque.
Details on the diesel are sketchy but we know Subaru Australia is working hard to bring the variant here. Expect the new Forester in showroom in March next year.
