The Japanese elephant in the room “Subaru” has always been that annoying nerd that is always sitting in the front side of the class and taking notes. Being always on par with Toyota and Mitsubishi can be a really difficult thing sometimes. Taking into account, that the Forester makes quarter of the automakers sales, so a facelift was in due time and it had to hold true to the original Forrester Suv’s design cues. The design was inspired by the new Impreza, which is more on the bulky side; the lines are all straight and sharp, giving the Forrester the look of an attack dog and succeeding to establish Subaru’s design direction in the market. Not the best thing to look at on a Thursday evening, but all of that aside let’s see what made the pit-bull what it is.
The new 2014 Subaru Forester saw a 1.4 inches increase in length and 0.6” increase in width, and 0.5 inches lower in height. Aside from redesigning the front and back-end, the Subaru team worked on making the Forrester’s front end slightly more compact towards the front, with a smaller grille, and sharper pointed head lights, all in favor of increasing the aerodynamic efficiency of the 2014 Subaru Forrester by adding a rear spoiler. The interior has been slightly modified, by adding a center stack covered with a colored LCD screen, and slight adjustments to the placement of the navigation screen.
I personally thought that Subaru could have added a lot of changes to the 2014 Subaru Forrester, and experimented more with the front fascia and the interior. What do you guys think? Will you be replacing your family Suv with the 2014 Subaru Forester or will you go with the 2014 Toyota Rav4?
