Subaru and Subaru Tecnica International have partnered to bring a unique 2020 Forester STI aerodynamic package for Japanese customers but U.S. fans get left out again. We found this new-generation Forester performance aerodynamic package on the STI website but it’s only offered in Japan.
The 2020 Forester STI aerodynamic package comes with a front lip spoiler, side under spoiler, aero garnish, rear under spoiler, and special STI black alloy wheels that give it its sporty appearance. It sets the 2020 Forester apart in appearance from the standard model, and it also brings reduced drag at high speeds.

Subaru Tecnica International says the next-generation Forester “aero” package also keeps the rear gate free of debris if you are driving down a muddy, or snowy mountain road. The Forester STI keeps the wind flowing through the rear wheels and cleanly out the back without getting the rear dirty.

We would like to see Subaru and Subaru Tecnica International take the new Forester STI even further and build a true STI model with a performance engine to go along with the new body kit. Imagine this cool looking 2020 Forester STI trim with an FA24 2.4-liter Boxer turbocharged engine under the hood of this black beauty.
The current Forester Sport trim you can buy in the U.S. comes with the standard 2.5-liter producing 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque (up from 170 hp and 174 lb-ft in the previous-generation Forester). Imagine the Ascent-sourced 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer engine with 260-horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque under the hood to go along with the exterior aerodynamics package. Subaru is also using this engine in the new 2020 Outback and Legacy XT models.
Why doesn’t Subaru drop the 2.4L turbo engine in the new-generation Forester?
Subaru could hit a sweet spot with many customers if they would bring this new Forester model to the U.S. and other markets around the globe. We are guessing there are plenty of customers who would buy a Forester STI riding on the new Global Platform, with comfortable seats, an upscale leather interior, and 260 horsepower. Many customers would jump on a new 2020 Subaru Forester STI.
