Subaru's brand-new 2014 Forester SUV has been given an early unveiling this week, thanks to a new set of leaked brochure images out of Japan.

The images reveal that the fourth generation of Subaru's trusty wagon will smooth out the styling of the current model, while taking cues from the new Liberty and Impreza models.

Obtained by enthusiast site CarScoop, the images follow spy photos published earlier this year and offer the first unfettered look at the new Forester.

According to these pages, the new Forester is larger all-round than its predecessor, riding on a 2640mm wheelbase (up 25mm), while measuring 4595mm long (35mm), 1795mm tall (15mm) and 1695mm wide (20mm).

The big new body will ensure improved space in the cabin, including a larger storage area, now listed at 488 litres (or 505 litres depending on translation) with the rear seats up - compared to 450 litres in the current model.

As revealed in the earlier spy photos, the interior of the new Forester follows the formula of the current model: that is, copy the Impreza's dash over to the larger SUV and resize to suit.

In Japan, the Forester's engine options will include a pair of 2.0 litre petrol boxer engines: the Impreza's naturally-aspirated 110kW unit, and the other a turbocharged version producing 205kW.

Transmissions will include a CVT automatic and a six-speed manual.

As with the current model, we can likely expect the Australian-delivered Forester to feature Subaru's 2.5 litre 126kW/235Nm boxer, along with the updated 108kW 2.0 litre diesel.

The new Forester is expected to hit the Japanese market in the coming months, making its way to Australia in the new year.

Watch for an announcement on local details in the coming months.
