2019 Subaru Forester in Durham - Raleigh

The High-Riding and Confident Subaru Forester is All-New for 2019, and Still a Solid Option in Durham

There's a very good reason that the Subaru Forester has remained a top option among compact-SUV buyers; or, there's about a hundred reasons. Things like standard AWD, high ground clearance, and an affordable starting price means that this comfortable crossover is also perfect for adventurers. Subaru's complete redesign of its iconic Forester means that this top family vehicle is even more impressive. For 2019, trim levels include the Forester (base), Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring.

An All-New Interior

With so many trim levels, there are a lot of options for customizing the best Forester for your lifestyle--whichever you choose, though, you'll be getting class-leading visibility thanks to a huge rear window, and up to 76.1 cubic feet of total interior cargo area--larger than ever before, thanks to the roomier interior of the new platform build. dual-zone automatic climate control now comes standard on all trim levels, and seat heating--on Premium and above--now offers three levels instead of two. Go up to the top Touring trim for a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, and beautiful perforated leather upholstery.

An All-New Exterior and Platform

If the 2019 Forester looks bigger, bolder, and more impressive--it is. The new generation rides on Subaru's new global platform, so it's bigger just about everywhere; except for ground clearance, which keeps its high-riding 8.7-inch clearance. The most visually new is the 2019 Forester Sport, which features a custom grille, 18-inch wheels with a custom finish, orange accents on the underguards, and orange accents on the roof rails.

Classic BOXER Engine Power--But, No Manual

This may be the one area of improvement that could disappoint some fans--because, not only is the Forester losing its manual transmission option for 2019, the turbo option is gone, as well. But, being able to focus on a singular turbo BOXER engine and a single CVT has made it possible to really refine the performance, efficiency, and ride quality of the 2019 Forester. For your casual commuter, the Forester's newly updated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine--boosted to 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, 12 HP and 2 LB FT more than the last generation--provides plenty of get-up, well-balanced with efficiency and impressive fuel economy. Even equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard on every trim level, the 2019 Forester can see up to 33 mpg on the highway.

Tech, Connectivity, and Subaru EyeSight Driver Assistance

New for 2019, the Subaru Forester will offer an EyeSight package standard on all of its SUV models. Eyesight safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and intervention, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Looking for a smart and savvy new compact SUV? The 2019 Forester comes standard with a 6.2-inch touchscreen display, running Subaru STARLINK with Bluetooth connectivity; a 7-inch display is available on select higher trims. Come visit our Subaru dealership in Durham and test drive the Forester.
