2014 subaru forester leaked

Subaru has never taken many liberties with the design of their small SUV – while the B9 Tribeca’s design arguably cemented this site’s reputation as the auto media’s demon side, the Forester stuck to a very consistent formula. And that’s not changing any time soon.

The brochure scan above purports to show the redesigned 2014 Forester, and the design cues are uncannily Impreza-esque. Carscoop reports that we’ll get a 2.5L Boxer without forced induction, making around 174 horsepower. Don’t get too excited about the 2.0XT model – not only is it not for North American consumption, but it will only come with a CVT gearbox.

    Is the brochure itself all curvy wavy distorted, or was it simply not laid flat on the old scanner? Did Subaru design it that way on porpoise?

    In that pic the new Forester looks like an old Caliber, but, so does the XV/Impreza 5 door.

    Subaru design: 'Let's make cars that would have looked good (interesting) in our home market 10 years ago'

    SO it looks like they're just taking a Legacy and increasing the vertical proportions by 30% in Photoshop. It's built on the same architecture, correct?
