An even hotter version of the Subaru Forester is on its way.
Several teaser images of a Forester in full STI trim have been released by Subaru in a lead up to the car’s November 25 unveiling.
Like other STI models, the faster Forester will features STI-branded upgrade brakes, bigger wheels, a front spoiler lip and revised suspension tuning. In terms of appearance, the typical Galaxy Blue Pearl paint will coat the exterior while red accents will be found inside and out.
Power is likely to come from the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine used in the WRX STI, though it may produce less power than the 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque found in that car to keep a performance gap between the two.
Exactly which markets the Forester STI will be sold in is still unknown. “That announcement is from the [Fuji Heavy Industry] global site,” Subaru USA PR manager Dominick Infante told us in an E-mail. “They have not specified the markets yet.”
