2019 Subaru Forester: Performance

This year's 2019 Subaru Forester sees a major update in terms of performance. Previous Forester model years offered two available engine options, but this year's 2019 Forester is now available with one enhanced engine option. All models come equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine that produces 182-horsepower, while still retaining impressive fuel economy both in the city and on the highway. That's 12-horsepower more than the standard engine on previous model years. Every model continues to come equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, allowing you to enjoy optimal traction, handling and control whether you're taking on slippery or icy roads, rugged terrain or everyday city streets, and with 8.7-inches of ground clearance to boot, it's easy to take on Keene winters and off road explorations with peace of mind knowing that your Forester is designed to do it all!

2019 Subaru Forester: Interior Features

One of the major updates to this year's 2019 Forester is a redesign that increases the interior size and a wider rear gate opening for easier access. The 2019 Forester now offers up to 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, with added legroom and the addition of an available panoramic moonroof for an open feel that everyone can enjoy. The cargo space has also been extended up to 76.1 cubic feet with the rear seats down, and with a power rear gate, you'll have no problem packing in everything on your next adventure. For even more space, the new 2019 Forester offers available raised roof rails, making it easy to bring along bikes, kayaks, skis, and much more.

2019 Subaru Forester: Technology Features

Perhaps the largest addition to the 2019 Forester is that the Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology system now comes standard on every model, providing you with state of the art safety features like pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and more. Many other safety features are also available, including rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot detection, reverse automatic braking, LED steering responsive headlights, and a new Subaru DriverFocus system that acts as a copilot along the way. The standard Starlink multimedia system also sees updates, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, allowing you to listen to your favorite music, make phone calls, send messages and much more on the go!

Subaru Forester Comparison

While the 2018 Subaru Forester certainly looks good in photos, on paper, and in person, one place it really shines is in comparison to other midsize SUVs. We’re taken the time to compare the 2018 Subaru Forester to the 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Toyota RAV4—two of the Forester’s biggest rivals—so drivers here in Keene and all the way across state lines in Brattleboro, VT or Winchendon, MA can see just how well the 2018 Forester holds its own in this always-crowded segment.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • Price: Starting out, it’s worth noting that the base MSRP for the 2018 Subaru Forester is over $1K under the base MSRP for the 2018 Honda CR-V, with the former beginning at $22,795 while the latter starts at $24,150. Not only is this a meaty price difference, the 2018 Subaru Forester offers standard all-wheel drive (AWD), a feature that is available on the 2018 Honda CR-V, but you’ll have to pay extra for.
  • Power: While the 2018 Honda CR-V has a slight power advantage when it comes to standard engines (184-horsepower engine standard on the 2018 CR-V; 170-horsepower engine standard on the 2018 Forester), the 2018 Subaru Forester has quite the power advantage when it gets to upper-trim powertrains. The available 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine found on the 2.0XT trims offers up 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque; compare those specs to the 2018 Honda CR-V’s available 1.5-liter inline-four rated at 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque and we think the choice is clear.
  • All-Wheel Drive: As we briefly mentioned, the 2018 Subaru Forester has standard Subaru AWD, while the 2018 Honda CR-V makes that an option. Around here, the extra traction can make a world of difference, but so can that difference in price—good thing the 2018 Forester gives you the best end of both.

Subaru Forester vs. Toyota RAV4

  • Price: Again, the 2018 Subaru Forester is the less expensive starting MSRP, beginning with a base price of $22,795, while the 2018 Toyota RAV4 starts off at $24,510. Once you reach the top trims, however, things become rather comparable. The 2018 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring has a base MSRP of $36,090, while the 2018 Toyota RAV4’s top trim, the 2018 Tota RAV4 Platinum AWD, weighs in a tad higher, at $36,250.
  • Capability: Not only is the 2018 Forester less expensive from the base trim, it also gives you AWD from the base trim; in the Forester lineup, AWD is always standard. The 2018 Toyota RAV4, however, thinks you should pay extra for that feature.
  • Headroom: In the 2018 Subaru Forester, you can sit tall without hitting your head or obstructing your view, and your tall passengers will thank you as well. That’s because the 2018 Subaru Forester has more front and rear headroom than the 2018 Toyota RAV4 (41.4 inches front, 39.8 inches rear in the 2018 Subaru Forester and 39.8 inches front, 38.9 inches rear in the 2018 Toyota RAV4).
