Wapcar Automotive News – What will Subaru fans find under the tree this morning? There are five new gifts they’ve asked for Santa but haven’t received this year. Check out the list here. It’s time to check under the tree and see what Santa has brought for Subaru fans. There’s the redesigned Outback, Ascent, and Legacy 2023, but there’s not much new to the Crosstrek or the Forester. Here are five things fans of Subaru Malaysia 2023 have asked for Santa but won’t find under the tree this morning.
1. Subaru Crossing the Desert
When will US customers get the all-new Crosstrek Wilderness trim level 2024? It’s not under the tree this year. The Crosstrek Wilderness will be the third SUV carrying the rugged Wilderness brand to join the Outback and Forester. But the Wilderness trim level will arrive later than the standard model.
2. Supercharged Forester XT model
Subaru customers in Japan get their Christmas presents early, but not in North America. Subaru Corporation has announced that the Forester 2023 for the Japanese market will get a new XT version with a turbocharged engine. The new Forester XT comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged boxer engine, but it won’t be coming to North America. A turbo Forester for US customers could be two years away.
3. Outback or hybrid Forester
A new report says the Japanese automaker is working on improved and more fuel-efficient hybrid and plug-in hybrid technology that will be available soon. Subaru only offers the Crosstrek plug-in hybrid to US customers, but not the Forester, Outback and Ascent SUV? Subaru CEO Tomomi Nakamura announced in May that it will add a dedicated electric vehicle assembly plant in Japan by 2027. Subaru said it will invest $2.05 billion in vehicles. new hybrid and electric vehicles in the next 5 years. Subaru fans will have to wait a while to get their hands on the new hybrid models.
4. Head display
The updated Outback 2023 provides customers with priority safety features such as driver assistance, a surround-view camera with blind-spot detection and visual indicator lights on the rearview mirror. However, it does not offer a head-up display (HUD) that projects information onto the windshield.
The head-up display isn’t just a luxury feature. This is an essential safety feature as it allows the driver to see with both eyes on the road by placing the necessary information directly into the driver’s line of sight. Many automakers like Mazda and Hyundai now offer windshield displays on lower trims, and you don’t have to buy a luxury car to get it. That’s the only feature Subaru is expected to offer on the 2023 Outback midsize SUV. You won’t find him under the tree this morning.
5. Wilderness heated steering wheel
Outdoor enthusiasts will have to endure heavy snow and freezing temperatures this winter. Hard to believe, a heated steering wheel is not available on the Subaru Outback and Forester Wilderness 2023 models. However, it is standard equipment on the Touring, Limited XT and Touring XT models. But Subaru didn’t give its active customers one of the best gifts they could get.
Santa is very kind to Subaru fans, but they asked for 5 things they won’t find under the tree this morning. Keep asking because Subaru of America will answer eventually.
What will come next year
The Crosstrek small crossover received updates in 2021 and was supposed to be redesigned for the 2023 model year, but global supply disruptions have forced the model to be pushed back to next year. The next-gen Crosstrek is expected to launch before the 2023 holiday season. The all-new Subaru Impreza 2024 sedan will debut before the 2023 holiday season. Subaru says the redesigned compact will be here next spring.
