What To Expect

Subaru has officially announced that a Forester Hybrid model will arrive in 2026. Beyond confirming that the 2026 Subaru Forester Hybrid is coming out, the automaker hasn’t provided a lot of specifications on the model. Here’s what we know about the upcoming 2026 Forester Hybrid.

With the 2025 Subaru Forester arriving for the new model year with a fresh design, we expect the 2026 Forester Hybrid to have the same look as the 2025 model. The 2025 Forester has an oval grille, triangular front headlights, and robust fender flares. The rear end of the Forester has wraparound taillights, a small rear spoiler, and a large rear bumper.

We expect the 2026 Subaru Forester Hybrid to have the same interior design as the 2025 model. The current Forester has a simple interior design with an elongated center console, a few physical controls, triangular air vents, and clear gauges. Because of its design, the Forester Hybrid should have the same roomy cabin as the gas-powered model and a similar amount of cargo space.

The 2026 Subaru Forester Hybrid should come with similar tech features to the current 2025 Forester. Instead of the 2025 Forester’s standard dual-screen system, we expect the 2026 Forester Hybrid to come with a standard 11.6-inch touchscreen. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, multiple USB ports, and navigation should be available.
