Subaru has managed to make its new 2019 Forester stronger, roomer and more modern without letting it become ungainly and possibly losing the charm of its predecessors. At the same time, this compact Subaru SUV, so popular with small families and pet owners, backs up its capabilities and all-weather credentials with abundant new safety technology.
New Features and Revisions
Everything. It all starts with a new chassis and a 2.5-liter engine with direct injection, higher compression and 90-percent new parts. In overall length, the new Forester is up by only 0.6 inches, but the wheelbase has increased by 1.2, which is a boon for back-seat legroom. Also, the Touring model has DriverFocus, which uses facial recognition to sense driver distraction or fatigue.
