The next-generation Subaru Forester will be released in 2023.

In early September, Subaru introduced the updated Forester 2022 model year, which underwent a facelift: the car replaced the grille, headlights, fog lamps, the front fascia in the cabin and interior trim.

However, Japanese journalists found out that such a modest set of updates dictated by the upcoming change of generation of the model — in 2023.

Moreover, despite the preservation of Subaru Global Platform car should get some evolutionary style of the exterior, and its technical filling will be hybrid and created by Toyota engineers.

Both companies already have successful experience of cooperation: for many years in a row come to the market related models Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ, and today also electric SUV Toyota bZ4x and Subaru Solterra, so the appearance of the new Forrester large number of parts with Toyota logos does not surprise anyone.

And still it will not be pure borrowing of power units and components. It is reported that the novelty will definitely get a traction battery of increased capacity, and the hybrid powertrain itself will include an upgraded gasoline engine and two electric motors.

Subaru Forester will remain a car with high off-road performance, so it will retain permanent four-wheel drive.

At the same time, Subaru engineers promise to focus on improving the efficiency of the existing hybrid powertrain from the Toyota RAV4 PHEV, reducing emissions and fuel consumption.

By the way, the current version of the crossover is equipped with a «soft» hybrid on the basis of a 2.0-liter 148-horsepower opposition motor, and the American market also gets versions with a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter engine.

The classic variant — a car with a conventional turbocharged 174-horsepower engine — is still available only in Japan.

After Toyota completely bought out Subaru at the end of last year, it began to actively develop its partner, introducing its own developments in its models.

Therefore, the information published by the Japanese media is not surprising. It is reported that the next-generation Subaru Forester will debut in 2023 and will get a Toyota hybrid unit.

At that, Japanese model will be built on a modified version of the SGP platform that is the basis of all cars of the brand.

According to rumors, the hybrid unit which the future Subaru will receive will be based on one combustion engine and two electric motors.
