Subaru showed a revamped Forrester at the 2012 Guangzhou Motor Show and the 2013 New York Auto show, which was destined to replace the current model for the 2014 model year. Overall, the new model was 1.4-inches longer, 0.6-inches wider, and had an inch added to its wheelbase. On the outside, it got a new grille and revamped exterior lenses, and new hood, and revised fascias. On the inside, the new Forester saw increased rear legroom and more cargo space, as well as some new technology features that include smartphone connectivity, better navigation, and a small display inside the instrument cluster. There were no real changes to the drivetrain to speak of, except for the new “X-Mode” all-wheel drive control system that is available as an option on higher trim levels. All told, the new generation was more like a facelift than a generational change, but Subaru made itself feel better by calling it the fourth generation model.

Competing against models like the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape comes as quite the task when Subaru doesn’t do anything to increase power output and only offers up minor changes to the exterior. Furthermore, the Forester now comes with a CVT transmission and its maximum towing capacity was reduced to a laughable 1,500 pounds across all trim levels. It does feature a “sport-oriented” suspension and 18-inch wheels on higher trim levels, but that only goes so far. With that said, you can learn more about the new Forrester by reading our full review below.
