Subaru is one of the first cars’ manufacturers that entered the compact SUV and crossover world. Its Forester model was one of the most popular ones at the beginning of this century. With its spacious interior, it was popular among big families from its beginning. The new 2019 Subaru Forester arrives significantly redesigned which will help it to attract new customers and here you can find top 5 reasons for that.
1. Turbocharged Engine and Fuel Economy
The new Forester will offer base 2.5-liter engine, delivering 178 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. However, new model plans to collect extra sympathies with the new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This mill produces 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Matched to a continuously variable transmission its fuel economy will be 28 mpg, which is a great figure since we are talking about SUV model. When you compare it with Hyundai Tucson or Nissan Rogue you will notice that its main competitors are not even close to the power of 250 hp.
2. Comfort an extra cargo space
The new 2019 Subaru Forester will be slightly larger than its predecessor which will contribute to more interior space. Now three adults can sit in the backseat without any problem. Also, with the increased cargo space, this model is perfect for longer holidays. Base space, without folding rear seat, has 34.4 cubic feet and when the back seat is down it increases to 74.7 cubic feet.
3. Standard features and extra gadgets
A 7-inch touchscreen with the new Starlink technology interface and eight-speakers dominate inside. Combined with ten-way power adjustable front and rear seats and heated steering wheel it provides great pleasure during the ride. Additionally, front and side airbags, rearview camera, traction control and antilock disc brakes make the same ride very safe for all passengers.
4. Sleek exterior design
Upgraded grill with new chrome details helps the new model to look premium. Adaptive LED headlights and automatic high-beam control combined with new curves on the bonnet add an extra touch. The rear side will stay similar as before but all in all, the new 2019 Subaru Forester will draw attention from people with style.
5. Competitive price
With the redesigned look and some new features, Forester SUV will be very competitive in its segment. Its price for the base model should start at $25.000 and this is more than fair if we know what this vehicle offers. Premium trims will probably cost more. However, even the base trim has some premium features which will separate it from the competition.
