Highlights from the 2019 Forester

Interior Design

Exemplifying the qualities of a family-friendly SUV, the 2019 Forester has been redesigned to now have more passenger volume than ever. The Forester offers 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume that when paired with soft-touch materials and an open design, makes for a comfortable spacious driving experience for everyone involved.

There is also 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space that can be transformed into 76.1 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.

Technology Features

One of the most notable changes to the latest iteration of the Forester is that the cutting-edge EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system now comes standard on every trim level. This system has been found to reduce the chance of rear-end collisions resulting in injuries by 85%. The robust set of safety features include:

  • EyeSight® Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning
  • EyeSight® Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Subaru vehicles equipped with EyeSight® in 2018 were given the highest possible rating for front crash prevention by the IIHS. However, the Forester has even more safety and driver assistance features available. Some of these features are only available on certain trim levels, but they give drivers even more peace of mind when driving. A few of these features include:

  • Subaru DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System
  • Blind-Spot Detection
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • LED Steering Responsive Headlights and High Beam Assist

Performance Features

The 2019 Forester now comes with a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine that achieves 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. With the ingenuity of direct-injection technology, you will have a responsive driving experience and the ability to tow up to 1,500 pounds. The Forester also comes stacked with performance features like Lineartronic® CVT, Active Torque Vectoring, and more.
