The new Subaru Forester has changed shapes, moving away from Subaru's rather odd styling, the MY09 model now looks like a small-medium SUV than a tall wagon.

According to Subaru the company had no intentions on making the new model bigger than its predecessor but had to compete with Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 which have both grown in recent years.

The new model is 9omm longer than the current shape while gaining double-wishbone rear suspension.
