The 2019 Subaru Forester from your local Subaru dealership near Beaufort, SC is a wonder worthy of praise. Gracious as a Southern Belle in the Carolinas, but packing power within the constellation brand’s body, this SUV is easily at the top of its class.

Just like its older iterations, the fifth generation Forester crossover has the punch for SUV class, but at the same time, has that station wagon feel the family can enjoy.


Coming Out With a Bang

As you gaze upon the 2019 Subaru Forester, you can tell it’s a strong, solid vehicle. It is slightly bigger than its predecessors but keeps that old compact feel it has upheld for five generations. It features an inch and a half more legroom, giving passengers a more relaxed atmosphere while cruising in the vehicle.

In addition, Subaru’s trademark compact SUV continues its run of dominance in critical categories.  The cargo area is the largest among its segment, occupying 30 cubic feet (76.1 cubic feet with rear seats down). Its ground clearance is the best in its class, topping off at 8.7 inches. Capping off the marvellous exterior is the 18-inch wheels with a black machine finish.

Interior and Safety Upgrades

The 2019 Subaru Forester features Eyesight driver assist technology, which warns drivers when swaying in their lane. With a great feature such as this, there’s not much to worry about while behind the wheel of a 2019 Forester. The autonomous emergency braking makes for an added plus to the safety aspect.

Another revolutionary feature of this cross-over is the Driver Focus Distraction Mitigation System, which is available for the first time ever with the Touring trim. Through face recognition, it is designed to pick up signs that the driver is tired or distracted. Once the signs are recognized, a chime will sound off and an icon will show to alert the driver they may be distracted and should stop for a break.

The Subaru StarLink Infotainment section in the front is astounding, with the 6.5-inch touchscreen including Apple Car Play and Android Auto capabilities. It also comes with a new feature: the StarLink Concierge, that serve as the driver’s personal assistant while in the vehicle.

Surprise under the Hood

Engine-wise, the 2019 Forester crossover shows that it is serious when it comes to performance and efficiency. It boasts of a direct injected 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, has 182 horsepower, as well as a forceful 176 pound-feet of torque. This is a powerful upgrade to the previous engine.Plus, with a 0 to 60 acceleration in 10 seconds, and highway driving that gets up to 33 miles to the gallon, the 2019 Forester upholds the spirit of a speedster for the compact SUV segment.

There’s no doubt the 2019 Subaru Forester crossover is a sleek design of its own. Retaining the combination between SUV and station wagon, with advanced technological features to boot, the Forester knocks it out of the park with the 2019 edition.
