What to Expect in the New 2019 Subaru Forester


Head’s up, Subaru lovers – Subaru of America just pulled another coup at the 2018 New York International Auto Show with the debut of the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester. All eyes are now on this supremely capable, Subaru crossover SUV, whose fifth generation will no doubt contend for best-in-class honors in a number of categories.

The 2019 Subaru Forester is the most capable Subaru Forester ever built - and that’s down to the fact that it was built on the Subaru Global Platform, whose next-gen technology and cutting-edge design implements have made the 2019 Subaru Forester quieter, more comfortable, safer, and more agile. Also, this SUV’s well-known 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine is updated, now producing 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque and featuring auto stop/start for improved fuel efficiency. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) returns, as does the Subaru brand’s highly respected symmetrical all-wheel drive (AWD).

If you want a new Subaru car near Baltimore, MD with plenty of space to house passengers and gear, look closely at the 2019 Subaru Forester. It boasts more room than any previous model, having added almost two inches to its wheelbase. The result is a cavernous 76.1 cubic feet with the 60/40-split rear seats lowered. Plus, the cargo area has a squarer design, the fold-down seats fold flatter, and the rear gate is more than five inches wider than previous models. This is wide enough to load a full-size golf bag without tilting it--a huge plus over competing SUVs – some of which use a rear gate that’s eight inches narrower than the 2019 Subaru Forester model’s.

There’s plenty more to love about this forthcoming Subaru Forester, including a new Sport trim and standard Subaru EyeSight® safety technology for all models. Contact our local Subaru dealer today for more information!
