- the subaru forester will get some updates for 2022, as previewed by this global version.
- we can see new headlights, new wheels, and some other visual tweaks.
- more details on the u.s. version of the updated forester should come later this year.
subaru will soon be rolling out an updated version of the forester for 2022, and we're getting a preview thanks to these images of the global version that the company posted on its japanese website. the biggest changes appear on the front end, where the forester features restyled headlights, a different grille, and a reshaped bumper.
subaru also says that it has added a few colors to the forester range, although we don't know if these will come to america, and updated the available upholstery choices. the eyesight driver-assistance features may receive some updates as well.
we don't anticipate any major changes to the forester's powertrain, a 2.5-liter flat-four with a cvt and all-wheel drive. although we would like to see the turbocharged forester xt model return with subaru's turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four, we're not sure how likely that is given that forester sales are strong with just the single engine choice.
the 2021 forester currently starts at $25,845 and ranges up to $35,945 for a touring model; we anticipate those prices will go up slightly for 2022, and the base model may gain some standard equipment. look for more information on the u.s.-spec 2022 subaru forester to come later this year.
