2015 Subaru Forester

The 2015 Subaru Forester has come of age and has completely redefined itself by winning and achieving many accolades and praise for its personality considered by many as utilitarian in this last generation. This car is outstandingly practical in performance though lacking good looks, isn’t that fast and doesn’t have a sporty appearance. Nevertheless, there are a multitude of added features for the small crossover to brag about. Added features include a backup camera, multifunctional display and much more as we will look at below.

2015 Subaru Forester exterior

Considering the exterior of the 2015 Subaru Forester, things have predominantly remained the same. The 2015 body styles have been retained with the 1st one being the more sinister and angular looking one of the 2L turbo and the more rounded aggressive front fascia of the 2.5L. The Subaru designers have obviously retained them maybe due to the fact that they know from customer reviews ‘who buys what’. Subaru customers will be spoilt for choice of the wheels which come in three options to choose from; one measures 17-inch while the other two are 18-inch dark grey wheels.

2015 Subaru Forester interior

Much as the exterior, the internal features of the 2015 Subaru Forester remain predominantly the same. The major differences are on the centre stack and the 4.3 inch multifunctional screen which is controlled by the steering wheel mounted buttons. With white on black colour theme, the speedometer and tach are clearer to read. On the dashboard is a standard radio head depending on the trim level for your infotainment needs. A six speaker sound system comes incorporated in the voice control navigation or better yet you could have the eight speaker Harmon Kardon system as an option. In case you are short of cargo space then you could fold the 60/40 rear seats down to create an enormous 74.7 extra cubic feet of space. Depending on the trim levels, you could get cloth and leather seats.

Engine

When we take a closer look at the 2015 Subaru Forester engine then a lot needs to be said including two horizontally opposed four cylinders. A naturally aspirated standard flat four mill comes as a 2.5L which is capable of choking out 170 HP and 174lb-ft of torque. Transmission is in terms of two options; CVT or the much hype 6 speed manual. The fun 6-speed unfortunately is only available with 2.5i and 2.5i premium trims. For the premium option the engine is a turbocharged 2L flat four capable of making 250HP and 258lb-ft of torque.

2016 Toyota CH-R

With the expected announcement of the 2016 Toyota CH-R, things have eventually become different. The car will definitely be fun to drive and cruise around town after the expected release. The magnificent stylish demeanour of the car speaks for itself even before Toyota can release more information. But what we do know is that the model has very big chances of going into production according to Toyota. This two door crossover is almost similar in size to the hatch back and sits comfortably on 19 inch wheels and terrain tires and almost compares in look to the Toyota FT-86 concept. At the back is an angular design coupled with an interrupted horizontal lines as well as LED tail lights that comfortably wrap themselves on the curvaceous ends of the car. The rear window is no exception to the attractiveness of the car but sweet as it sounds the actual car is mysteriously expected to have a slight difference to the model conceptualised 2016 Toyota CH-R. 1st is that the real car will be both in two and four door forms then 2nd the actual car will have black bumper protection.

2016 Toyota CH-R Engine

When we come to the engine of this beautifully crafted creation from Toyota, nothing has been made public on the actual specs but what we know for sure is that it is going to be a hybrid. The odds are quite high for it to come fitted with the BMW engine which has 1.5L and produces up to 170HP. In addition there will be around 200 HP which will come from one or two electric mortars as well as a four wheel drive system which will provide a more funny character.

2016 Toyota CH-R Interior and Exterior Design

The grill will have a singular motion and the head light graphics are expected to be changed. In addition smaller wheels and fenders will be different from the concept. The 2016 Toyota CH-R will have a large roofline spoiler as well as a flat roof. It will be available with large blind spots as well as small rear windows, though the company has announced a review of the thick pillars. At the rear is a tailgate design and floating tail lights. Unfortunately for the interior design nothing at all has been provided for the 2016 Toyota CH-R.

Although we expect contemporary materials as well as a combination of soft and hard plastics available in metallic accents. A touch screen display of 1.6 inches will make up the for infotainment systems. In terms of safety, there will be high beltline, blind spot monitors, low roof as well as a rear view camera and so much more.

 Price and Release Date

No information on the release date has been released but it is reported that the car could make it to the dealers in the first quarter of 2016 but it could also be postponed for a later date since there has been no official communication as yet. Mystery is what shrouds the price expectation of the 2016 Toyota CH-R but since it is anticipated that the CH-R will battle with the Nissan Juke then the price should be expected at 20000-25000 dollars.
