Cool 2019 Subaru Forester Spy Shots

I have been looking at 2017 Forester XT for a while. Not in a hurry to pull the trigger since a new engine, suspension, and apps that could be readily available on 2019 models.

So here are some spy shots leaked today.

I will post them in my reply since the first post of this Forum can't contain links or images.

I guess I could not post the source link in my second post either...

Spy shots are from a Japnese twitter account: つかさん@32TRUSTいっぱい

Look like fakes or possibly a "spy shot" from before the 2017 face-lift.

2019 models should get a full update and won't be such minor changes. The Forester will be switching to the Subaru global modular platform, so a major redesign will be required.

Could be testing in the current model. If you look closely at the third photo you see the chrome type finish at top of dashboard like the new impreza dash.

Looks like someone cover a current model to get their picture taken. I am hoping the 2019 Forester is more along the lines of the Subaru Viziv concept.

Yeah I hope they're using a current generation mule to test the new platform.

Let us also hope that they take the opportunity to address some of the issues raised in this Thread instead of trying to "keep up with Jone's".

I'm sure if they addressed some of these issues they would win back some past owners plus more new ones.

Thanks for the heads up XT-sub, link fixed, somehow an extra http:/ slipped into the link address and I missed it.

That's pretty, but unless I'm missing something, that 3rd row will be cramped.


I know nothing.

Is the rear spoiler at the top of the hatch exclusive to Turbo Suby's?

Modern day equivalent with a lot of creature comforts, I know, I had one for a while.

i wonder if they'll wait and just move the whole line up to the global platform (that means, the STI and WRX... so, maybe 2020 meaning the fozzy will be 1 year off the subie cycle)

If you aren't upgrading, you aren't trying.
