With its completely new design, the 2019 Subaru Forester is more versatile and connected than ever. However, some things are staying just the same for this beloved model, including its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and outstanding ground clearance.
Powertrain and Performance
All 2019 Subaru Forester models are powered by a 2.5-liter inline-four engine rated at 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), a combination that helps the Forester achieve an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.*
With its redesign, the 2019 Subaru Forester becomes even more spacious and relaxing. With plenty of room for up to five passengers to sit comfortably, the Forester also offers available heated seats, eight-way power front seats, rear air vents, and a heated steering wheel. You’ll also find numerous storage options for smaller items. Behind the second row, the Forester comes with 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space. You can fold down the rear seats, which expands the available space to 76.1 cubic feet. The wide trunk opening makes it easy to load items. For even more convenience, there is an available power liftgate.
The 2019 Forester comes standard with the advanced Subaru EyeSight® system. This package includes cutting-edge safety features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, lane departure warning, and Lane Keep Assist. Additional active-safety features, like automatic reverse braking, blind-spot monitoring, and the new DriverFocus™ system are available on higher trim levels.
You will stay well-connected in the 2019 Subaru Forester thanks to its abundant standard tech features. The Forester offers a 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth® connectivity, the SUBARU STARLINK® app suite, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. Higher trim levels add features like a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a six-speaker audio system, an 8-inch touch screen, a Harman Kardon® premium audio system, and built-in navigation.
