A Refreshed Forester sampled in two flavours
Twenty years ago Subaru capitalized on the success of its Outback wagon program with a follow-up Forester, creating a new, dedicated compact CUV.
It was one of the first crossovers to blend real SUV style and utility on a car-based platform for improved handling and increased fuel efficiency.
The new Forester didn’t waste any time bursting out of the starting gate, to the point where it soon led the Subaru stable in both sales and popularity.
Since those early days, the Forester has evolved through four generations of upgrades, with the latest changes enhancing this model mainstay through a mid-cycle refresh treatment for 2017.
