Subaru has a new SUV headed for the 2023 Los Angeles Auto Show, and we have a hunch that it's a new Forester. Considering that the compact crossover was last redesigned in 2019, it's about time for another major update.


The only glimpse we get of the 2025 Forester comes in the form of a single teaser image, which depicts the SUV's revamped wheels surrounded by the usual black plastic cladding. Judging from the evolutionary redesigns given to the latest Crosstrek and Impreza, we don't expect too many changes in store for the Forester's inoffensive styling. The SUV should stick with the same platform as before, which means it will likely remain within the same size as the outgoing Forester.



The Forester is also likely to hold on to its 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque in its current application. And this wouldn't be a Subaru without standard all-wheel drive, so that's a given. Another sure bet is the return of the more rugged Wilderness model, which bolts on additional ground clearance and an extra helping of black plastic cladding.


More exciting changes are in the works for the Forester's interior. We expect the SUV to adopt a large, vertically-oriented infotainment system similar to the one found in most of the brand's recent offerings, along with updated materials and new EyeSight active safety features.



We won't have to wait too long to see what the redesigned Forester brings, as Subaru plans to reveal it on November 16.
