All-wheel-drive crossovers seem to whet the whistle of buyers unlike anything else these days. Though nearly every automaker offers some sort of high-riding, so-called-active-lifestyle vehicle, Subarus in particular seem to embody the ideal of the crossover unlike anything else. Even non-enthusiasts know Subaru is the first choice of the outdoorsy among us; a casual trip to the local dog parks or trailheads will almost certainly reveal a gaggle of Subarus clustered together in the dirt parking lots.
This is the high wave that the 2019 Subaru Forester comes riding in on. It looks little different than the outgoing model, though underneath a host of changes promise a better driving experience than before and interiors have been upgraded in respect to materials and quality. There's no doubt, however, that the essence of the Forester remains wholly intact. Nicely straddling the line between technological progress and comforting familiarity, the 2019 Forester should have no problem continuing as the cornerstone of the Subaru lineup and holding envious competitors at bay.
