Subaru is enhancing the appeal of the current Subaru Forester with the addition of new upgrades for the 2016 version of the crossover. Watched from outside, the new Forester has a new fron end, with a distinctive hexagonal grille that has been updated with a new ‘wing’ motif grille mesh, while the front bumper has been reshaped and now features new L-shaped chrome trim adding greater visual volume to the lower part of the Forester’s ‘face’.

The wraparound headlamps have a new black base paint finish for a sharper appearance. The 2016 model is also fitted with new LED combination lamps at the rear.

Inside the cabin we have new soft-touch materials, new piano black and metallic trim, higher-resolution TFT displays and new cloth and leather upholstery options, including a new brown leather option. Thicker glass has been applied to every door and the front quarter lights at the base of the A-pillar, reducing the ingress of wind ‘rush’ and other noises into the cabin.

On the technology list, the 2016 Forester adopts new headlamp technologies which include LED lights with Adaptive Front Lighting System. The new Adaptive Front Lighting System allows the headlamps to rotate left or right into corners as the driver turns the wheel. 

On the safety side, the Forester has twin front, side, curtain and knee airbags, Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC; Subaru’s electronic stability control system) with trailer stability, and Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive technology.

The range of engines remains unchanged for the 2016 Forester: buyers can choose from three 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engines, a 150 hp naturally-aspirated 2.0i petrol engine and a 147 hp 2.0 turbo-diesel unit from Subaru’s FB family of engines, and a 241 hp direct injection turbocharged (DIT) petrol unit.

There are a total of nine models in the 2016 Forester range, starting at £25,495 for the 2.0i XE and £26,995 for 2.0D XC models, and rising to £30,995 for high-powered 2.0 DIT XT versions of the car.
