2019 Subaru Forester Arrives Later This Year

The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester, in its fifth generation and available in standard, Premium, Limited, Touring and new Sport trim levels, is powered by a 182 horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder BOXER engine featuring Auto Stop/Start and paired with a standard Lineartronic CVT driving its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. On Sport and Touring variants, the CVT features a manual mode that simulates a seven-speed manual transmission, using steering wheel paddle shift control switches. The wheelbase is increased to 105.1 in. from 103.9 in., with more rear seat legroom, which is now 39.4-in., a 1.4-in. increase and gains in headroom, hip and shoulder room. DriverFocus is a driver monitoring system that uses facial recognition software to identify signs of driver fatigue or driver distraction. The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester arrives at Subaru retailers later this year.
