New 2019 Forester in Rochester, MN

The 2019 Subaru Forester - Revised and Ready for Your Test Drive

The Subaru Forester has legions of fans around the country, and for good reason. The stylish, five-passenger SUV with standard Subaru all-wheel drive is comfortable, roomy, and powerful. Now, thanks to a big overhaul and makeover for the 2019 model year, the new Forester models we have available at Subaru of Rochester are better than ever.

The changes on the 2019 Subaru Forester run deep. At first glance on the outside, longtime fans won't notice any overwhelmingly huge updates, except for the front grille, which is a little larger and more beefed up than in previous years. But, elsewhere, the Forester has some clear updates that we know our customers in the Rochester area will appreciate.

Intelligent Interior Design

Looking for bigger changes than a beefier front grille? Step inside our 2019 Forester and immerse yourself in its more-spacious interior design, complete with added room for both cargo and people.

We're not talking about a tiny bit of extra room, either. This 2019 Subaru Forester has more than an inch of increased legroom for rear seat passengers, with additional space tacked on for hip room, headroom, elbow room, and shoulder room. Plus, the cargo hold now opens to more than 51 inches wide, which is 5.3 inches larger than the 2019 Subaru Forester.

Power & Performance

While previous versions of the Subaru Forester let drivers choose between either a 2.5-liter four cylinder, or a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, the 2019 model simplifies things quite a bit, by only offering the 2.5-liter engine as the single option. But, we don't think you'll miss that extra engine option, because the 2.5-liter engine has been revised and puts out more power than ever before.

The new, Subaru Forester 2.5-liter engine gives drivers 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, which is an increase of 12 more horsepower and 2 pound-feet more torque than the 2018 model.

Another notable difference for the 2019 Forester update that you might notice is in the transmission. Where there used to be a manual transmission offered for the Forester, Subaru now only quips this popular model with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). But, if you simply can't live without the feeling of being in control of your vehicle's shifting, don't worry. Subaru is putting a paddle shifters on some models, which will simulate the fun of a seven-speed manual transmission.

Safety Features

Longtime fans of the Subaru Forester already know to expect this 2019 model to come with the signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Subaru models are known for. But, in addition to the added security and peace of mind standard all-wheel drive provides, the new Forester also piles on advanced safety features and driver's aids as standard features as well.

While in past years Forester drivers could upgrade to the advanced safety features package, known as Subaru EyeSight, now it comes standard on every trim level. This package gives drivers a slew of modern-day, innovative features, such as traffic-adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, a lane departure warning and intervention system, and collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
