Debuting in its 5th generation at the New York International Auto Show in NYC, the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester gives you even more. This SUV combines innovative technologies with top-notch performance with enough space for the whole family and everything you desire.

In fact, the redesigned interior gives you so much more room. Here’s what you can find inside of the updated Forester:

  • 1.4" increase in rear legroom to 39.4"
  • Additional headroom, shoulder room & hip room
  • Wider rear door openings & steep C-pillar angle for easier child seat installation
  • 1.4 cubic feet of added cargo space to total 76.1 cubic feet with the 2nd-row seating lowered
  • Flatter load floor & squared-off cargo area shape with a 5.3" wider rear gate opening (now 51.2") for easy stowage of large objects

The exterior’s redesign gives a more rugged feel that combines the look you know from Subaru with our brand’s new design language. This look offers the following changes:

  • New LED headlights to better complement the signature hexagonal grille
  • High-gloss black or silver trim for a premium look
  • Height/strength-emphasizing shoulder lines wrapping around the pillars
  • Front/side/rear underguards with a trim-specific color finish
  • More prominent wheel arches
  • New color options: Jasper Green Metallic, Horizon Blue Pearl & Crimson Red Pearl

One thing doesn’t change for the Subaru Forester: the fact that the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system comes standard to give you exceptional traction and control when driving in inclement weather that North New Jersey is known for most of the year. However, there are several changes we want to tell you about for the 2019 edition.

EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

The first thing you’ll enjoy is the fact that you get EyeSight Driver Assist Technology in every 2019 Subaru Forester at our dealership serving Wayne & Emerson NJ! This popular feature now comes standard and gives you:

  • Adaptive cruise control to keep your SUV a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you automatically
  • Lane keep assist & sway warning to ensure you don't drift into a potential life-threatening accident
  • Pre-collision braking & throttle management that applies the brakes partially or fully to help prevent a collision or minimize injury & damage during one

There’s also a new aspect of EyeSight offered in the top-of-the-line Touring trim: DriverFocus. This upgrade brings safe driving to the next level since uses facial recognition software to identify signs of driver fatigue or distraction.

This tech was designed to help reduce the number of injuries caused by accidents involving distracted drivers. According to data from the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, there are more than 1,000 injuries per day due to these types of accidents in the United States.

New Engine & More Under the Hood

There have been improvements made to the 2.5L SUBARU BOXER 4-cylinder engine under the hood of the 2019 Subaru Forester. Firstly, you'll find that the engine delivers 182 hp and 176 lb/ft of torque, which results in an increase in power and quicker acceleration.

Credit for this also goes to the Lineartronic CVT that gets up to 33 mpg highway fuel economy, which is an improvement on the 2018 edition. Choosing the Touring will add a manual mode for the CVT designed to simulate a 7-speed manual transmission via paddle shift control switches on the steering wheel.

You can customize your Forester driving experience thanks to the Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) system that lets you choose from “Intelligent” and “Sport” mode. “Intelligent” mode maximizes gas savings by smoothing out accelerator inputs, while "Sport" mode maximizes performance by properly tuning the throttle.

2019 Subaru Forester Sport

There’s an all-new trim for the 2019 Subaru Forester: the Sport. Designed for top-notch performance with features like the aforementioned CVT with the manual mode and an enhanced Sport Sharp mode (replacing Sport) for the SI-DRIVE, this specific model comes with unique design cues to match the driving spirit it has to offer.

Among the trim-specific appearance features to give you a modern & youthful yet rugged look are: Sport grille with black gloss finish frame Black-finish 18” wheels & rear roof spoiler Orange accents on the black underguards & roof rail mounts add a modern, youthful Unique dark gray interior with orange stitching & exclusive accents

The 2019 Subaru Forester Sport adds all of that along with a cargo-area LED light with auto-off and a rear gate LED flood light (for seeing your rear cargo space in the dark) to the amenities found on the Forester Premium trim that include:

  • LED fog lights
  • High Beam Assist
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals
  • Windshield wiper de-icer
  • Keyless Access with Push-Button Start & PIN Code Access
