2019 Subaru Forester


The 2019 Subaru Forester Improves Upon an Already Dynamic SUV Here in St. Petersburg

The old saying goes, "Don't fix what's not broken," but if Subaru followed that mantra, it would never need to update the iconic Forester. As one of the top-rated crossovers on the market for years, you'd think Subaru would be content with rolling out refreshed updates of the same model year after year. Instead, the new 2019 Subaru Forester marks an unlikely improvement upon what's already been impressing drivers from the Tampa, Clearwater and Bradenton areas. Keep updated with our St. Petersburg, FL Subaru dealership to find out when the new 2019 Forester will be available to test drive.

Somehow the new 2019 Forester has improved driving characteristics and even better fuel economy than before. Previous versions of the Forester always rated highly in its class for gas mileage, but that's bound to improve thanks to some quasi-hybrid tech improvements with its all-new available 2.0-liter e-Boxer engine. This new engine - which replaces the previous version's turbocharged four - sacrifices a good amount of horsepower, but if you need strong fuel economy figures with a safe, capable and family-friendly crossover, it proves to be a great choice. For a more typical midsized SUV setup, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder offers 182 horsepower and still strong efficiency ratings.

Of course the new 2019 Forester remains true to its Subaru roots, with the likes of standard AWD and the newly standard EyeSight suite, which includes pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. New technology like the DriverFocus system - which can tell when the driver is getting drowsy or distracted behind the wheel - only amplifies the safety and sensibilities of the new Forester. With a few available trims, you'll have plenty of options, from the base level's infotainment package to upgrades like navigation and more advanced driver assistance features.
