Subaru’s production policy is well-known, so you will know that the compact crossover will see a lot of growth in the coming years. The 2024 Forester will be undergoing a major redesign. We expect many new features. The company will offer subtle, but significant, changes in many aspects. We expect to see a brand-new exterior design and a more technologically advanced cabin. We could also see new features in the powertrain. According to recent reports, the Subaru Forester Turbo 2024 will be making a comeback.
Details are still not known, but it appears that the company may offer a turbocharged powertrain for this compact crossover. Sources suggest that the new engine will be a 1.8-liter unit. However, there are reports of a new performance model, which would have a larger and more powerful engine. It is also possible to electrify.
2024 Subaru Forester Turbo Redesign
As with the previous redesign, it should be done in Subaru’s usual fashion. This is because the Japanese manufacturer has been very cautious about changes. Therefore, redesigns have been subtle and with evolutionary changes in all aspects. We don’t anticipate anything different in the next generation.
The updated platform of Subaru Forester Turbo 2024 should be used, but with some modifications to the suspension and chassis. Although the ride quality of the current model is excellent, this would make it slightly more comfortable. The overall layout will not change. You can expect a Subaru with its legendary AWD system and boxer engine. We might still see new traction modes for challenging terrains or off-roading.
We expect to see the new styling, which is something we also expect. The changes should be evolutionary. While the overall shape of the model will not change, the most significant changes should be made at the front. The new model should adopt the latest design language and a new grille. These elements are similar to the new WRX.
We expect to see significant changes in the cabin and we will also be incorporating some of the new models into our design. The WRX’s dashboard layout would likely be the same as the WRX’s. However, there will be new tech features and a significant improvement in materials and build quality. We believe all models could be equipped with an 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment display, as well as various connectivity options, such as wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
We believe that the dimensions will remain roughly the same as the current model. The amount of space for passengers should also remain the same, which is a good thing because the current generation has a lot of space in both rows. The vehicle can comfortably carry five adults and has a large cargo area. However, we are looking for improvements in sound insulation. This could be a problem with the current model.
The powertrain is one of the most important changes in the next generation. It should be turbocharged. The 2.5-liter engine with naturally-aspirated power isn’t very peppy. One option is to replace it with the turbo-four 1.8-liter. Although this engine has slightly less power (182hp is equivalent), it produces 45 lb-ft more torque, which should make a significant difference in overall performance. It is rated at 221 pound-feet and 174 horsepower.
Sources also suggest a high-performance model. The 2024 Subaru Forester Turbo would be equipped with a turbo-four 2.4-liter engine, which produces 260 horsepower and 277 pounds-feet of torque. There is also the issue of electrification. Several sources suggest that a hybrid version will be available for the next-generation model. The mild-hybrid powertrain is available in Europe, which combines a 2.0-liter engine and a 17-hp electrical motor.
2024 Subaru Forester Turbo Release Date & Price
The 2024 Subaru Forester Turbo will be available sometime in the second quarter of 2023. It is expected to arrive at a starting price of around 28.000 USD. Models like the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Tucson are key competitors.
