If you take a look at the exterior design, you may see the similarities between the Legacy and Forester. But Subaru thinks that it is time to make a change. They are finally going to make the two creations look different. After all, looking identical in the auto business isn’t exactly the smart thing to do.
Predictions state that the new 2020 Subaru Forester may be coming with massive bumpers, new grille, and highly likely a different size as well. The idea to make the car look bigger and bolder (more aggressive too) is designed to appeal younger drivers. Moreover, it is also possible that new different colors will be offered to appeal this market.
What about the interior cabin? Although the changes won’t be too dramatic, there are certainly going to be a change. The upgrade feature of instrument cluster, steering wheel updates, and the addition of multimedia display screen are part of the refreshment. There will be additional safety features, including security systems and electronic assistants. There’s rumor about the new autopilot technology but Subaru hasn’t confirmed it yet.
