According to the information our team has got, the 2019 Subaru Forester has been caught during its testing recently. Although this model has undergone some upgrades and refreshments recently, the fans have been eagerly expecting to see what exterior and interior improvements Subaru has prepared for its 2019 edition.
The Subaru Forester has been present in the market since 2013, when it appeared as a 2014 model. Since then, it has been one of the favorite practical crossovers with great fuel-economy and off-road ability. The spy photos of the 2019 Subaru Forester have caught the camouflaged prototype of this model only, but we have managed to notice some improvements on this next-generation SUV. It will most likely be using the new Subaru Global Platform. Also, the first thing that you notice is its bigger size and a larger wheelbase. This fact definitely promises more space inside this model as well as improved stability and safety. The first impression says that this SUV will mostly stick to its tradition in terms of shape and design. However, it will definitely appear more truck-like. Bigger than its predecessor, but also well-rounded, the new Forester has been pretty much compared to the Subaru’s next-generation models such as Ascent and Impreza. The new Forester will probably be available in several trims, so the equipment you get will depend upon them. The headlights will be positioned higher in the front fascia and they will be using the latest LED technology. The taillight have been said to be inspired by other Subaru models, previously mentioned.
When it comes to interior of the 2019 Subaru Forester, the fans can look forward to its more spacious and comfortable cabin due to its bigger exterior dimensions and larger wheelbase that we have previously mentioned. Also, being the next-generation truck, the new Forester should provide the high-quality materials to furnish the cabin and cover the seats. The cabin is expected to be improved and quieter which means that it will reduce the outside road noise and vibrations. A driver will probably get a heated steering wheel and a large touch-screen display in the center console, at least in higher trims. Safety systems and driver assist features such as a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assist will be also included.
It seems that the 2019 Subaru Forester will be offering two options under its hood. The current 2.5-liter found in 2018 model will be replaced by a new 1.5 or 1.6-liter flat-four turbo that will be able to deliver 170 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The other option probably includes the Subaru’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 250 horsepower. The new Subaru will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and it will probably abandon the CVT option. It also offers its standard all-wheel-drive system.
2019 Subaru Forester Release Date and Price
The 2019 Subaru Forester should appear in showrooms by the late 2018. The price of the 2018 base model starts around $23,700 so you should expect a similar price for the 2019 edition.
