The 2022 Subaru Forester has not been announced by Subaru of America yet, but new details surface from reports in Australia. We expect an announcement in August for the U.S. specifications. Before the reveal, we know the 2022 Forester gets a freshened front with revised headlights, fog lights, front bumper, and grille treatment.
Improved safety technology
There will be improved safety technology with added next-generation EyeSight driver assist technology, including a new lane-centering function, lane departure prevention, and autonomous emergency steering.
A retuned suspension
The 2022 Forester will also come with enhanced suspension and off-road technology. The compact SUV will feature retuned front springs and dampers for improved ride comfort, steering responsiveness, and handling. Subaru says the new aluminum engine mount bracket will reduce vibrations and noise inside the cabin.
Improved off-road capability
The Forester’s all-wheel-drive system gets improvements with enhanced X-Mode with the ability to automatically re-engage once the SUV speed drops to 22 mph or less, and a revised Hill Descent Control improves vehicle control speed.
New hand gesture control feature
The Forester’s Driver Monitoring System adds a new gesture-controlled temperature adjustment for the air-conditioning, a new feature for Subaru that enables drivers to adjust the temperature with a simple hand gesture.
New colors and upgrades inside and outside
Forester gets an updated instrument panel design inside, and Sport trims now have a circular fog light design featuring 6 LED lights and a revised rear bumper lower cladding. New colors are Autumn Green, Brilliant Bronze, and Cascade Green, which are available on all trims other than Forester Sport.
The 2022 Subaru Forester gets a makeover with new safety, suspension, off-road capability, hand gesture control, an upgraded instrument panel, new colors, and Sport trim upgrades. The U.S. specifications will be announced soon, likely in August. Stay tuned.
