2019 Subaru Forester



This is just plain ugly. And offensive.

Sure, not as weird/crazy looking as the Lexus UX. But this is actually really bad.
That grille looks like a Chinese car from a few years ago. Bits, lines, details, fake vents everywhere. 
It is just so busy and uncoordinated.
Like 30 designers worked on it and never talked to each other.

The interior is almost OK. Still very "Klingon like". 

I saw the Ascent in person and actually kind of liked it. 
And I do like the current Impreza hatchback and Crosstrek.
But this seems really like step backward.

I am sure it is a good car. People will buy it and most will love it.
(Plenty of ugly things are quite popular...) . It could have still been a quiet, simple conservative design with nice proportions. There is really no excuse in 2018 for something to look like that.

Again, just look at that front end for a while...

But hey! Let's hope the official pictures look decent. Or maybe it look better "in the flesh".

You realize the interior is lifted from the Impreza/Crosstrek...right?

You're right! I didn't realize.

It is ugly as sin but the senior ladies will buy them in droves due to its safety, reliability and great visibility.

TBH, it just looks like a Toyota-ized version of the current conservative Forester front end. Not really too surprising, just busy. What I really want to see is the profile and greenhouse.

Vince you need to get your eyes checked. This is not ugly or offense at all. To me it looks like an evolution of the current Forester design which isn’t exactly a beauty queen but far from ugly and as inoffensive as you can get. Also that interior is direct from the Impreza which is pretty nice.

It looks from these angles more rugged and less girly...

There is no XT version, right?

Very very ugly

The Forester has always been an undesirable vehicle to me and this new gen version continues that tradition. The interior looks fine, but the exterior is a hopeless snooze fest.
