For fans of the Subaru Forester STI series, this moment will definitely be eagerly anticipated when this Japanese car maker is planning to release the 2021 Subaru Forester which will bring back the STI model. Read on this article to find out more the latest rumors about its engine and performance, as well as the upcoming appearance.
Subaru Forester series is probably the golden boy of the Subaru company, first introduced on the market in 1997 and customers fell in love with it right away. Many good reviews proved that this model lead the market that time.
Since then this model has been made, they produced it in four generations with some interesting features added. Unfortunately Subaru Forester STI at that time could only be enjoyed by Japanese consumers, and then this series stopped being manufactured in 2008.
In 2020, we can expect Subaru Foster to be released with a hybrid engine, but the new STI version will only be brought back in 2021 version.
To find out the performance of the Subaru STI engine, we must look back on the reputation of the 2021 Subaru Forester predecessor which used the 2.5-liter flat-four engine that was planted in the Impreza WRX STI.
This engine is able to generate power of 175 horsepower, together with torque of 17 lb-ft. Most likely the 2021 Subaru Forester Redesign will continue the success of this engine, of course with additional features that make its performance more efficient, such as torque vectoring and also limited slip differentials.
For the hybrid version, Subaru is still working on its engine to get the most efficient it can have. They try to integrate electrical and typical engine that allows the output signal to jump for around 50 horsepower, which could be revolutionary and outstanding discovery.
Exterior And Interior
The physical appearance of the 2021 Subaru Forester will be similar to the standard version, but with some additions to the inside and outside that make its overall appearance more aggressive yet seductive.
Rumor has it that the interior of the 2021 Subaru Forester is quite extensive with a modern touch and sophisticated safety system. Chrome elements, leather and wood will still dominate. The back seats can carry 5 people in 2 rows of seat. Meanwhile in the second row, the installation comes with 60/40 installation and the cargo area is quite comfortable.
On the exterior, the outer contours of this model are more or less the same as the previous version, but the leading end is likely to get some revisions, such as lines and curves that are more dynamic. The front end might also get a little change. Overall, the changes will give a more fresh impression. The car frame is also more durable which can reduce the effects of vibration and noise.
In terms of security, the 2021 Subaru Forester integrates a top quality safety system that provides a feeling of security and worry free driving. This medium size SUV incorporates many security features, such as a more adaptive cruise control, departure lane warning, and headlights that enjoy the built-in camera features.
Release Date and Price In Comparison To Its Competitors
The 2021 Subaru Forester will be released in the summer, at a price of around USD 2,000 more than its predecessor. Lower class prices around USD 29,500, while USD 40,000 will cost you for hybrid classes.
However, this price is still more affordable if you compare it to the competitors at the same level such as the Ford Edge or Kia Sorento.
