Subaru’s fifth generation Forester might not look a whole lot different from the previous model, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a truck-load of great stuff going on in this latest edition. Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio walks us through all the new goods from Subaru.
For the latest Subaru Forester pricing and information:
The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester is built on the same platform as the Impreza, Crosstrek and Ascent. The 2019 Subaru Forester compact SUV is slightly longer, wider and with a longer wheelbase. This offers more space on the inside for rear seat passengers and the design of the rear hatch and cargo area is squarer and wider for much more space. The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester crossover has room for 5-passengers over two rows. The Forester already had wonderful functionality and now the rear has more legroom, the front seats are wider and more comfortable with more attention to soft touch surfaces and detail. The New Forester utility vehicle has either a 6.5-inch display audio system or 8-inch unit with standard Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Eyesight is back and standard on the Forester. The X-Mode terrain setting has now expanded to include a D, or Deep snow and mud setting allowing the traction control to be turned off enabling the wheels to spin for things like getting out of a snow bank. The engine now has 12 more HP at 182 with 2lb-ft. more torque. Gone is the turbo model and the Forester is no longer available with a manual transmission. The CVT has a 10% greater ratio range for better launch and high speed cruising. The fuel efficiency numbers have not been published but expect the 2019 Subaru Forester to get better fuel economy thanks to the CVT and the addition of direct injection.
Subarus are popping up everywhere. Last year was the brand’s best year in the U.S. in terms of sales, and there’s no hint that Subaru is slowing down anytime soon.
The Forester is one of Subaru’s most successful products and is now reaching its 20th birthday with some important changes to its formula. Of course, this spike in popularity is well deserved and it all starts with how the Forester drives and how practical it is. A crossover is a vehicle that combines the driving style and feeling of a car with the size and practicality of an SUV. The Forester embodies this category so well. Unlike traditional SUVs, it’s very easy to drive without a lot of body roll or bounciness. And unlike traditional cars, the Forester is very practical and full of space.
