Subaru Forester Powertrain Review

If you want a powerful engine under the hood of your SUV, you'll probably like the 2.5L I-4 SUBARU BOXER® engine that comes with the 2019 Subaru Forester. This engine delivers 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It can also tow up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

The 2.5L engine is paired with a Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission (CVT), which automatically balances performance and efficiency. This engine also includes an Auto Start-Stop System, which prevents fuel waste while idling. It works by powering down the engine during extended stops at red lights or stop signs, and powering it back up when you take your foot off the brake.

To help you maximize on your handling capabilities, the Forester comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD), which sends power to all four wheels at once to reduce wheelspin.

Interior of the Subaru Forester

Inside the 2019 Subaru Forester, you'll find a versatile space with everything you'll need for a weekend away. For example, you can bring along a total of five passengers, including the driver, and still have room for 33 cubic feet of cargo.

Need to pack even more? You can fold down the rear seats and load up 70.9 cubic feet of cargo. It's easy with the available one-touch folding rear seatbacks.

The interior space also includes 40.2 inches of front-seat headroom and 43.3 inches of front-seat legroom. These seats can be heated, as well, with an available upgrade.

When decorating your interior, you have the following options:

  • Cloth: Black, Gray
  • Premium Cloth: Black, Gray
  • Sport Cloth: Gray
  • Leather: Black, Gray, Saddle Brown

2019 Forester Safety Technology

The Subaru Forester is packed full of standard safety technology designed to help you stay alert and aware during your drives around town. These features are part of the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology suite, which includes technologies like:

  • Pre-Collision Braking System
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure with Lane Keep Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

One of the most unique features in this suite is the Pre-Collision Throttle Management system. It helps to prevent you from accidentally accelerating when merging into heavy traffic.

The Forester also has the available DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System. This system learns your driving habits. Then, if it detects patterns that indicate drowsy or distracted driving, it provides an alert that you may want to take a break from behind the wheel.
