Hope they do more than a teaser. Lots of "all new" small SUVs out as 2018 and 2019 models, so if they keep the lid on until Fall, quite a few people will have already decided and maybe bought elsewhere. The Forester and the RAV4 are the only two "new" ones left that have not put out much info. Think it would be in their best interest to try to make sure that buyers still keep them in mind.

Hmmm: better than the outgoing model BUT why does Toyota keep making the lower grill opening so f-ing HUGE? All of their cars look like vacuum cleaners, the sedans especially.....the RAV body is okay and that interior with the stuck on iPad interface that is now so popular, is impractical.......anyone at Toyota ever hear of reflections and sun glare? My thanks to Tesla for pioneering this idea so the other manufacturers could "yard ape" their way to using the same damnable screen placement.......

It looks like an amalgamation of the past two generations of Foresters. Also, have some plome...with a side of plome. Meh.

Am I the only one that isn't a fan of the saddle brown interior?

That entire interior is awful. I really wanted to like it, but I can tell I just won’t. Frustrating.

Too bad.

The black lower grill area has been an XT feature. . .

My summary of the show floor images: Nicer (Imprezza/Crosstrek) dash. Step backwards in exterior styling. Front end is fugly, way too busy. Not as bad as Toyota/Lexus though! It's possibly only the higher trims, but all the lower level fake dull chrome / silver accents - cheesy and lame.

Of course we expect better than the previous gen under the skin - improved chassis stiffness and handling, lowered NVH, better crash test performance. Engine?
