Every trim brings all new functional design to its drivers.With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Forester is good for even some light trailing and uneven terrains. An available X-Mode comes on select models, optimizing the AWD potential to easily handle mud, snow, lose dirt, or boost road performance at the turn of a dial. The wheelbase has been expanded by two inches, giving rear seated passengers now nearly forty inches of legroom! Further gains in head, hip, and shoulder room are provided in the great spaciousness of the Forester's cabin, totaling 112 cu.ft of passenger volume. And the trunk space is amazing at up to 76 cu.ft of volume. The extra wide rear liftgate is five inches wider than its previous iterations, making it easier to load up or unpack. A power liftgate is optional on the Premium and Sport, and standard on the Limited and Touring. For those that want maximum flexibility on their journeys, you'll love the standard raised roof rails with integrated tie-down points. The Forester's amazing value includes an eight-inch touchscreen with the latest STARLINK Multimedia system, coming with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Pandora, and other apps such as navigation, news, music, and weather. The Forester comes with standard 17- or 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights, and lower body side cladding to protect against mud, rocks, and other debris. A power panoramic moonroof comes standard on all but the base model, and upgraded durable leather upholstery comes on the Limited and Touring models.

What systems have been added into the new powertrain?

All 2019 Foresters come with a Subaru signature 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine, well powered with 176 lb-ft of torque and 182 horsepower.

Flexibility during your drive is an breeze thanks to a standard selectable Subaru Intelligent Drive, managing powertrain performance to tailor throttle for specific fuel-efficient or sport handling.
