The 2019 Subaru Forester from a Subaru dealership near Beaufort, SC proves that Subaru knows exactly what customers want in a crossover. The Forester is already a perennial favorite for being agile, wildly versatile, and extremely accommodating, but it’s set to exceed all expectations.
For this year, the 2019 Subaru Forester is equipped with a new transmission and new BOXER engine for even better efficiency and power. Exteriors and interiors have been refreshed, adventure-ready features have been updated, and it’s packed with more tech and comfort features than ever before. Get ready for the latest and best Forester yet!
Room to Spare
The 2019 Subaru Forester hits that sweet spot between not too big and not too small. It adds a bit more in terms of width and length, providing greater legroom and plenty of headroom for everyone inside no matter the seating position.
Cargo area is bigger as well at 35.4 cubic feet, and the Forester boasts the widest load-in aperture in its segment. Buyers should have no problem loading up this SUV thanks to the incredibly wide tailgate with available power operation.
Opening the doors reveals a spacious cabin filled with premium materials and finishes. Passengers will enjoy amazing outward vision while settling into firm and comfortable seats. Higher trims treat the driver to a 10-way power adjustable seat. Second-row passengers have massive legroom at around 40 inches, and there are rear-seat climate control vents too. Finally, you get a lovely mix of contrast stitching, soft-touch materials, and low-sheen surfaces for some of the nicest interiors in the market today.
Every Road is the Right Road
The 2019 Subaru Forester is powered by a brand-new 2.5L engine that smoothly delivers 182 horsepower and 176 lb.-ft. of torque paired to the unobtrusive CVT. This new engine is also more fuel efficient than the previous one.
The latest Forester now rides on Subaru’s new Global platform, same with the bigger Crosstrek and Ascent. Because it’s more rigid, the new platform gives the 2019 Subaru Forester more composure when going through corners and over bumps. This new model is quieter as well; there’s minimal tire and wind noise, and the engine compartment stays hushed over rough roads.
Finally, every road is the right road for the 2019 Forester— it doesn’t matter if it’s pavement or dusty trails – this SUV is ready for them all thanks to the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-Mode (with deep snow/mud modes and snow/dirt modes on the higher trims), and off-road features like Hill Descent Control.
High Standards of Safety
Subaru’s excellent EyeSight Suite is standard on the 2019 Subaru Forester. Some driver assist safety features to look forward to are lane departure and sway warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and lead vehicle take-off alert.
Once you hit the road, have fun discovering the EyeSight’s other awesome features. For instance, the pre-collision throttle management system will alert you and reduce throttle response if it senses something ahead. The Starlink Safety Plus package also includes stolen vehicle recovery, SOS emergency alert, automatic collision notification, and roadside assistance.
It’s hard to believe that such an achiever can still be improved, but that’s what Subaru did to the 2019 Subaru Forester.
