 What's New for the 2019 Subaru Forester?

The Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV that Subaru has been produced since 1997. On March 28, 2018, the Japanese automaker revealed the 2019 model year—and the first entry of the vehicle’s fifth production (“SK”) cycle—at the New York International Auto Show. The 2019 Forester is split into five trims: a base-level model, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring.

Powering the 2019 Subaru Forester is a 2.5-liter flat-4-cylinder engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It comes with an auto stop-start system to eliminate engine idling (thus making the vehicle fuel efficient), and it is hitched to a continuously variable transmission (which further enhances fuel efficiency by getting rid of the energy-burning gear shifting characteristic of traditional transmissions). Notably, the Sport and Touring have paddle shifters for simulating more driver control. All-wheel drive is standard on the Forester, and it is accompanied by Subaru Intelligent Drive for boosting vehicle performance. X-MODE® is added on all trims above the base level for improved traction. With two-row seats to accommodate up to five people, the 2019 Forester provides 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and 35.4 cubic feet of standard cargo space on the base-level model and 107.8 cubic feet and 33 cubic feet, respectively, on the upper-level ones. Ten-way power adjustability with power lumbar support on the driver’s seat is extended to the Premium. Heated front seats appear once you get to the Sport, which stands apart with its racing-style upholstery. Leather seats are standard on the Limited and Touring—with heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a two-position memory system for the driver’s seat unique to the latter.

Standard comfort and convenience features include a multi-function display, STARLINK™ multimedia integration with a 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen, six-speaker audio, dual front-row USB ports, an AM/FM/CD player, HD Radio™, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone integration, Bluetooth® wireless technology, and trial SiriusXM® satellite-radio and Travel Link® subscriptions. The Premium gets six speakers (instead of four), a panoramic power moonroof, 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability, and a removable cargo area tray. The Sports trim level upgrades the Forester with a color multi-function display, keyless access with push-button engine start, and two additional USB ports. The Limited has dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch LCD multi-touch-gesture display (instead of the 6.5-inch), and an auxiliary audio jack. And the Touring is unique with a navigation system and a 576-watt nine-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

For safety, the 2019 Forester gets features such as a rearview camera, vehicle dynamics control, traction control, active torque vectoring, trailer stability assist, hill descent control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, brake assist, brake override, seven airbags, a theft-deterrent system, and EyeSight® driver-assist technology (which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure and sway warning, and lane keep assist). The Sport has the addition of high beam assist and the STARLINK Safety and Security1 suite of functions that include SOS emergency assistance, automatic collision notification, remote engine start, roadside assistance, and maintenance notifications. Added on the Limited is blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert. Unique to the Touring is the DriverFocus distraction mitigation system and reverse automatic braking.
