2015-subaru-forester-sti-teaser-images-1 Ten years ago, Subaru shoehorned its WRX STI’s 2.5-litre turbo boxer-four engine into its SG-series Forester crossover, calling it the Forester STI. Despite being on sale for only a few short years in Japan, the mad crossover found its way into many other countries including Malaysia, through grey importers and the Japanese performance model gained a big fan base within a short period of time. 2015 Subaru Forester STI Teaser Image 2 Now the people at Subaru have confirmed that their iconic model is making a comeback with the release of several teaser images, along with a world premiere date, November 25th. Details are scarce but from the teaser pictures we can see the 2015 Forester STI will benefit from new alloy wheels, STI-branded brake calipers, signature pink highlights and a front fascia similar to the Forester STI tS concept, which previewed last month. 2015 Subaru Forester STI Teaser Image 3 Like the STI-tuned WRX, the upcoming hot Forester will feature an aggressive body kit, larger wheels, a sportier interior and firmer suspension setup.
