The new Forester features an entirely new front fascia design with new grille, four-lamp headlights, new bumper, hood and fenders. At the rear, the Forester receives new taillamps and an aluminum trim panel. All models get larger body-colour side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals.
All naturally-aspirated Forester models receive active valve lift technology, which boosts horsepower to 173 from 165 in the 2005 models, while improving fuel economy. Turbocharged models are boosted to 230 hp, an increase of 20 hp.
