In the autumn of last year, within the framework of one of theAmerican auto show in Los Angeles, the audience was introduced to the new, fourth generation of the world-renowned Subaru Forester SUVs. Technical characteristics and design of the novelty, according to the developers, have undergone many changes. By the way, in the domestic market, sales began 2 weeks before the official premiere. On it the manufacturer told all the detailed information about the novelty, so we have enough information to devote a separate review to the Japanese crossover.
Outside, the car has not changed much.If you compare it with the previous, third generation of SUVs, you can see only a few differences. Updates mainly concerned lighting, the design of the grille and the shape of the bumper. Also, the manufacturer changed the design of the wheel disks. In the rest, the novelty remains the same, so that the output of the new generation can be compared with the usual restyling (when the exterior of the car changes only partially).
Dimensions and capacity
It is worth noting that the car's body added a littlein the sizes. It is very difficult to notice with the naked eye, but there are still changes. So, the length of the SUV is 459.5 centimeters, the width is almost 180 centimeters, and the height is 173.5 centimeters. The wheelbase has also increased. Now its length is 264 centimeters. At 5 millimeters clearance was added (now the ground clearance of the car is 22 centimeters). Thanks to these changes, the engineers managed to increase the amount of luggage space. Now you can put up to 488 liters of luggage.

The next engine "Subaru Forester" found not immediately, but only six months after the official debut. With its 2.5 liter displacement, it develops 171 horsepower. This engine will no longer be available as a basic option for buyers of the new Subaru Forester SUV.
