The 2009 Forester will be unveiled in Japan this Christmas and in the USA in January 2009. What will happen with the Forester 2008? Will the Forester 2008 and the Forester 2009 be sold during the year 2008? I think that it has never been a Forester 2008 just the Forester 2007 sold in 2008. Are there any comments on this? The 2009 Forester is another animal completely. It will compete with the RAV4, CR-V, and Outlander. So when the 2009 Forester will be sold in the USA?

The 08 Forester has been out for a while. The 09 will ship in Feb/march time period.

I like how it looks. I was worrying Subaru will botch the Forester's body style, and I'll have to buy 5 Foresters'08 to last me next 20 years but it looks like I'm safe waiting for 09 (while driving my Forester'06).

According to their spec sheet, the base model has about 140HP and 140 TQ. That's a step way down from that of the 07 base model.

The Japanese-spec models use a 2.0 engine, not the 2.5 that we get.

I like that aqua/green jade tone. Probably won't offer it here.
Wonder if they'll offer that stain-proof material with the orange stitching.
Back seat looks nice and high up off the floor as opposed to too low to the floor like most Subaru passenger seats as of late.
