What's New to the 2019 Subaru Forester?

The exterior dimensions and design aspects are similar from past models, but the 2019 Subaru Forester rides on the all-new Subaru Global Platform that makes the cabin quieter and more spacious while also managing to cut total weight and improve rigidity, which is important for ride quality and protection during a crash.

Additionally, the 2019 Subaru Forester adds a range of new features, like heated rear seats and a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, upgrades others, like the now larger in-dash touchscreen display, and makes previous favorites of Shelbyville drivers, like LED headlights and the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology package, standard. With more value and options, the 2019 Subaru Forester, and therefore the driver, is even more prepared for any problems on the road.


The renowned 2.5-liter BOXER® four-cylinder engine of past models is still found in the 2019 Subaru Forester but a little finetuning adds more horsepower and torque while the addition of an Auto Stop-Start System helps Jeffersonville, IN drivers get more miles per gallon. Of course, it still comes standard with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System that is ready for the worst weather and terrain that the area has to offer. Plus, Active Torque Vectoring now comes standard and the new platform delivers a smoother ride over bumps.
