Choosing Your Subaru Forester

The 2019 Subaru Forester rides on Subaru’s latest platform, meaning improved safety, vehicle dynamics, efficiency, and greater interior space. The exterior shape is instantly recognizable as a Forester, and the interior receives a thorough redesign with increased use of premium materials.

All Subaru Forester models are equipped with all-wheel drive, a continuously variable transmission, and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that generates 182 horsepower and 176 pound-foot of torque. This sole configuration earns an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 29 combined and claims a 1,500-pound towing capacity.

The Forester is available in five distinct trims. The base Forester is the price-leader, the Premium offers a range of features, and a Sport trim adds not only distinctive styling trim bits but also feature content. The Limited and Touring trims offer subsequent features and safety equipment.


The base Forester starts at $25,270 (all prices include the $975 destination charge) and includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and the latest in infotainment with access to SiriusXM, HD radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto controlled through a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. LED auto-headlights, automatic-climate controls, and LED interior map lighting are also noteworthy standard features. The option list is narrowed down to 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels for $600 and two extra USB ports for the back seat for $178.


The Premium trim begins at $27,670 and adds two additional speakers(for a total of six), 17-inch alloy wheels, a 10-way power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote engine start, and automatic collision notification. The exterior receives roof rails, turn-signal-integrated mirrors, and a body-colored rear roof spoiler. There are three option packages offered that build upon each other. First up is the All Weather Package for $500 that includes heated front seats, heated side mirrors, and a windshield wiper de-icer. For $1,295, the features of the All Weather Package are joined by blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and proximity entry with push button start. When the power tailgate feature is added to that list, the package price jumps to $1,845.


The new Sport trim, priced from $29,770, includes bright orange accents around the exterior and interior that are emphasized with blackened exterior body parts, wheels, and an exclusive gray interior trim. In addition to the styling features, notable content upgrades include 18-inch wheels, proximity entry with push button start, a larger 6.3-inch driver information screen, and vents for the rear passengers. A more capable terrain management system, larger front brakes, and paddle shifters are also included for sporting moments on- and off-road. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and reverse automatic emergency braking are available along with a larger eight-inch infotainment touchscreen for $795. Those features can be bundled with a Harman Kardon audio system and a power tailgate for $2,045.


The Limited trim is $31,770 and notably features perforated leather seating, unique interior trim finishes, dual-zone climate control, a power tailgate, and active headlights. The reverse automatic emergency braking system, Harman Kardon audio system, and navigation are included in the available package for $1,695.


The Touring trim represents Subaru’s vision for luxury in this segment and checks in at $35,270. Its exterior trim parts, such as the mirror housing, door handles, fog light surrounds, and front, rear, and side lower garnishes are dipped in chrome. The interior sees exclusively available leather colors, a power passenger seat, heated rear seats, and a camera that utilizes facial recognition software to detect when the driver may be getting drowsy. The system then notifies the driver with an audible and visual alert. There are no packages available.
