2019 Subaru Forester

 

The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester will be arriving soon at Patriot Subaru in Saco, ME!  It made it's featured debut at the NY Automotive Show on March 28th, and is expected to be here this summer.

Room inside has always been an attraction to Forester buyers, and Subaru reports that this 5th generation Forester has the most interior room ever. The redesigned cockpit is more spacious than ever, and comes with the most technology in its class. The wheelbase has increased slightly to 105.1 inches and it now has 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space, an increase of 1.4 cubic feet from the previous model.

The exterior has a front end that is contemporary and more in line with the styling of the other Subarus in the line up.  New LED headlights and taillights are standard features on all trims. You will notice that the wheel arches are more defined, and the shoulders more sweeping.

Safety has always been Subaru's top priority. The Forester has been long recognized for being one of the safest vehicles on the road, but true to Subaru, the new 2019 model has even more safety features.  First, every Forester comes with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, standard.  The Driver Assist suite features Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure/Sway Warning, Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and Adaptive Cruise Control.  This is one reason why Patriot Subaru employs our "Subaru Genius's" to help new buyers understand how these features come into play while you are driving.  The top-of-the-line fully loaded Forester Touring trim includes DriverFocus that monitors and takes action to avoid driver distraction and fatigue.


New assets include Android Auto/Apple CarPlay integration, Automatic Climate Control, Auto Start/Stop, Welcome Lighting, and a power-locking fuel door. A power panoramic moonroof comes equipped on all trims except the base model.

Under the hood, there are upgrades as well!  This new Forester has an upgraded 2.5-liter, Boxer engine, with a strong 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque (12 more horsepower and 2 pound-feet more torque than the previous year). This naturally-aspirated four-cylinder is only available with a 7-speed Lineartronic CVT, featuring a manual mode with paddle shifters on the Sport and Touring trims. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive transfers power to the wheels and is now paired with Active Torque Vectoring, adapted from the WRX sports sedan.


It all sits on the new Subaru Global Platform.  The high strength steel frame provides the highest level of collision safety. The lower center of gravity improves handling - which in itself improves safety. You will notice a quieter, more comfortable ride, with a reduction in noise and vibration. Overall performance is enhanced!
