Australians will get a first look at the new Subaru Forester at this year's Melbourne Motor Show from 29 February to 10 March.
Subaru's third generation constant All-Wheel Drive Forester will be unveiled at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, revealing a wider, taller vehicle with greater cabin space.
Forester started a whole new trend and pioneered the Compact Sports Utility Vehicle market when originally launched in 1997.
A multiple award-winner and best seller for Subaru in Australia, Forester sales have passed 100,000 and it consistently sells more than 1000 a month.
Sales of the new Forester will start in mid-March.
Ergonomics and functionality were a focus for the designers, with the five-seat cabin designed for excellent all-round vision and controls within easy reach.
Melbourne International Motor Show opens at 5pm on Friday 29 February and is organised and promoted by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce through its dealer division the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Vic).
