2022 Subaru forester: Everything you need to know

The Subaru Forester’s popularity has been fueled by its usefulness and ability to travel everywhere thanks to its ground clearance, despite being a compact crossover. It was recently announced that the 2022 Subaru Forester had undergone a styling overhaul. In addition, the Subaru Forester introduced a new model trim called the wilderness to its roster, which comes with a tough look package and greater ground clearance. The Subaru Forester competes against other small crossovers including the Honda CR-V and Toyota Rav 4.

2022 Subaru forester Styling

With its updated style, the Subaru Forester now has a new, truck-like appearance. From the front, it has a redesigned grille, headlamps that appear like blocks, and new wheels. An extra ground clearance was added to the new Subaru Forester Wilderness.

Engine, power, transmission

The Subaru Forester’s design was improved in 2022, but the engine was left untouched. The same 2.5-litre four-cylinder boxer petrol engine powers it. Its engine generates 239 NM of torque and 182 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission system transmits all of this power to all four wheels.

The hybrid vehicles in the lineup are propelled by two 2.0-litre gasoline engines, each producing 110 kW and 196 Nm, plus a lithium-ion battery pack with a 12 kW/66 Nm electric motor. They have a CVT and are all-wheel drive as well.

Fuel consumption 

The Subaru Forester fueled by gasoline only uses 7.4 liters per 100 kilometers on a mixed cycle. The fuel consumption of hybrid vehicles is lower, at 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers, and they have a 43-liter fuel tank as opposed to a 63-liter tank for gasoline-powered vehicles.
