Maybe 2021 Subaru Forester does not bring much new in design, but it brings something better – a come back to STI version that old fans and buyers will surely recognize. To be honest, since the first model was released in 1997, many of them have bought at least one upgraded version of it.
The reason why the model is so extremely attractive even after so many years of existence is good design, a long durability of the engine and great equipment for favorable price. According to the manufacturer, all of that and even more will be offered in the new model.
- The model is attractive and modern for the average buyer.
- There is a great engine that comes back STI version.
- The cabin is not much changed.
- The model has not been fully redesigned.
There are no significant changes in the design of 2021 Subaru Forester, even though the model is changed in some parts. It is made to be more aerodynamic, of materials that are both lightweight and provides quietness in the cabin.
Thanks to the new curves and lines, the model will make a large distinction from the similar models, like Ford Edge, retaining the similarities with the models in the class. The most attractive is small and short front end, with redesigned lights and thin but interesting bottom of the bumper. The center of the bumper is decorated by a rhomboidal gridded grille with a recognizable logo in the middle. The rear end is expectedly short but offers great cargo space.
Although the 2021 Subaru Forester looks small and maybe not that much appealing for the buyers that will drive family on the weekends often, it still has a comfortable and roomy cabin with acceptably large cargo space. The manufacturer provided the best safety system in class, including adaptive cruise control, departure lane warning, and headlights that enjoy the built-in camera features.
The base model will have 2.5-liter flat-four engine which is the reason for changing of 2021 Subaru Forester into STI version. You will see the same engine in Impreza WRX STI, too. The 175 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque explain the high interests for these engines. However, there is even more attractive engine, a hybrid one, that will boost the power for 50 horsepower and even more torque. It should be made as a combination of petrol and electric engine, as in most SUVs on the market.
2021 Subaru Forester Release Date and Price
Although Forester has never been too expensive, the price of $30,000 for the base model is more than surprising. We have not used on small prices for attractive SUVs and crossover that offers good parts and features. In case that you are more for the hybrid model, you should prepare $40,000, which is still not that much as we used on these models. Releasing date is not known yet, but it could be later next year.
