Subaru has given the fifth-generation Forester its first mid-cycle refresh, more than three years after the SUV first made its global debut. Pre-orders for the refreshed SUV will begin in Japan this August, with customers able to choose from four trim levels - Touring, X-Break, Advance and Sport.

The main styling changes are seen at the front, as the Forester sports new headlights with a more upright and angular design. Each cluster has a small line towards the more prominent grille, which has a new insert inside its hexagon.

The same applies to the interior, with the general layout of the controls and equipment being the same, although there are some new upholstery and trim options available, depending on the variant.

In terms of engines, the Touring, X-Break and Advance trim levels all come with Subaru's e-Boxer hybrid powertrain as standard. This includes a FB20 2.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-four that drives all four wheels through a symmetrical all-wheel drive system, with the hybrid component being an electric motor housed in a Lineartronic CVT.
