Subaru recently announced the launch of the sixth generation of the Forester, which arrives with novelties at every level. The Japanese manufacturer's SUV displays a more modern and elegant appearance than ever before. Its interior has been completely renewed, and even a hybrid engine is expected for 2026.

The new generation of the Forester also comes with a whole arsenal of advanced technologies, both in terms of entertainment and safety. The model is expected to enter Subaru dealerships in Canada next spring. The Convenience, Touring, Sport, Limited, and Premier versions will be available upon its market release.

A Handsome Face

The previous generation Subaru Forester had character, but the brand's designers have done remarkable work for the 2025 model. It features sleeker and more streamlined headlights with a broad grille, making it even more imposing and elegant. The lower part of the bumper is simpler but equally muscular. The Forester is easily recognizable from the side and the rear, even though the finish is slightly different. The rear has been designed to give the impression that the roof is floating. The tailgate offers a more complex design, and the fenders provide a square profile. Overall, the exterior design of the 2025 Subaru Forester is more robust and modern.

Inside, the dashboard has been redesigned with larger air vents and a more athletic style. There's more attention to detail in the finish and more interesting color combinations. The centerpiece of the vehicle remains the 11.6-inch touchscreen. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto communication technologies as standard. Although many of the Forester's controls are found in this screen, Subaru has still retained some physical buttons, notably for the climate control, which is a very good thing. Meanwhile, the base model features a 7-inch screen, which is still quite adequate.

Two Engines or Almost

For now, the new generation Subaru Forester only offers one engine option. Of course, it retains its classic 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. The power has been slightly reduced from 182 to 180 horsepower. Regarding the engine torque, there's an increase to 178 pound-feet compared to the previous 176. This engine is paired with the CVT gearbox already found in the Forester, which also offers all-wheel drive as standard. A hybrid engine is expected to be added to the Forester lineup for 2026.
