From the outside, the front gets a slightly revised front grille arrangement and there's also new wheels. But it's under the bonnet where most of the changes will be, because it's one of the first cars to get the all-new 2.0-litre boxer engine.
No official details regarding the Australian specification Forester has been released, although we do know that Subaru has concentrated on improving fuel economy and reducing emissions with the new boxer.
The inside also gets some updated features such as the detachable TomTom navigation unit, as well as iPod connectivity and revised boot space.
The only specifications released have been of the oversees models so it is too early to tell what other distinguishing features Australian consumers will get. Subaru Australia has said the 2011 revised model will go on sale early next year.
