2025 Subaru Forester Will Be Redesigned, and Here’s a First Look

  • A new Subaru model is coming to the 2023 L.A. auto show, and we think it’s the new 2025 Forester.
  • The compact SUV was last redesigned for 2019, meaning it’s due for a new generation.
  • We expect it to feature new styling and an upgraded interior.

Subaru is teasing a new model that’s slated to debut at the 2023 Los Angeles auto show in a few weeks. Based on the fact that it’s one of the oldest models in the automaker’s lineup and hasn’t been redesigned for several years, we think it’s the 2025 Subaru Forester compact SUV.

From what we can see from the teaser image, it looks like the new Forester will have a new wheel design and different body panels—of course with the requisite black plastic cladding that makes a Subaru a Subaru. As for what’s underneath, we don’t anticipate it will move to a new platform, meaning the basic dimensions and mechanical components aren’t likely to change much.

Look for Subaru’s venerable 2.5-liter flat-four engine to carry over, with standard all-wheel drive, natch. We’d love for Subaru to bring back the turbocharged Forester XT model, but we haven’t heard any rumors suggesting it will return. The off-road-oriented Forester Wilderness model is a sure bet to continue, though, with its extra ground clearance and more rugged look. Interior upgrades will likely include a larger infotainment screen, additional driver-assistance features as part of Subaru’s EyeSight system, and new upholstery and trim options.

More information on the new Forester will come soon, as the L.A. auto show press day will take place November 16.

Despite being raised on a steady diet of base-model Hondas and Toyotas—or perhaps because of it—Joey Capparella nonetheless cultivated an obsession for the automotive industry throughout his childhood in Nashville, Tennessee. He found a way to write about cars for the school newspaper during his college years at Rice University, which eventually led him to move to Ann Arbor, Michigan, for his first professional auto-writing gig at Automobile Magazine. He has been part of the Car and Driver team since 2016 and now lives in New York City.
