2022 Subaru Forester Facelift Rendered To Strip Off The Camouflage

The changes are subtle but keep the crossover looking modern.

The Subaru Forester is on track to be the brand's bestselling model in the United States in 2020, and the company is doubling down on the success by preparing a refresh for the popular crossover. After seeing spy shots of the updated model, the folks at Kolesa have a rendering imagining how it might look.

As with most refreshes, don't expect any revolutionary design changes. The comparison below shows the 2022 model with a boxier grille and relocated crosspiece that shifts the Subaru badge lower on the vehicle's face. 

The revised lower fascia has somewhat larger openings in the corners, and the fog lights remain there. The opening in the center is bigger, too.

Expect only the smallest changes along the Forester's flanks. Subaru might change some of the trim, but the crossover is going to look the same, in general.

The changes to the rear are very minor. A revised bumper no longer has an opening for the exhaust outlet, which creates a somewhat cleaner appearance back there. The hatchback is a bit smoother, too.

There are no details yet about how Subaru might change the refreshed Forester's interior. The usual recipe these days involves updating the infotainment system with a bigger screen and tweaking the cabin's materials.

Powertrain changes are similarly mysterious. Expect the 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder engine to stick around. In a dream world, Subaru would re-introduce a turbocharged version of the Forester by installing the brand's 260-horsepower (194-kilowatt) 2.4-liter powerplant into the crossover. Although, there's no evidence that this is what the automaker plans to do.

Look for the refreshed Forester to debut in the first few months of 2021. Sales should begin in the second half of the year.

Is quite easy to spot.. anyway as consumer we should work together against AD/PI to bring in the best product at competitive level... 

I think this is best approach/focus by everyone here (SE excluded)....

I thought the previous model looks better. The new one looks heavy with unnecessary design details.

The GEM of Gen 5 is the chassis.

It drive and feel different and is a complete level up from the previous generation.

This car must be appreciated as a whole.

I agree. I moved from the 4th Gen NA to the 5th Gen mild-hybrid.  It does feel different in a generally good way. The AWD keeps the car in control in corners and the body seems stronger. This lessen the feel 'zippiness' (if that's the correct word). Not sure how the no-hybrid performs, but for the mild-hybrid, when accelerating and the battery kicks, I can feel the car pulling better than the previous model. The safety features with the eyesight is also a plus.

The design though is a little garish on the outside, though it may appeal to some. There are too many materials which makes design looks fussy. Chrome on the grills and fog light housings, matt black on the side mouldings and wheel arches, matt silver on door mirrors. The picture in the first post is only slightly better.
