One of the most sought information about the new 2019 Subaru Forester is the release date and price information. However with the minimal information we got about the car specification it is hardly that we can predict the release date and price. The 2019 Subaru Forester is most probably scheduled to hit the showrooms sometime in the end of 2018. The price of the next-generation Forester is still unavailable.
The new 2019 Subaru Forester exterior will feature several new design that we can see on the grille design that now looks even more masculine with the Subaru symbol on the center of it. The front end will receive the similar grille design as the current model but some changes in its design are evident. The headlamps will be positioned a bit higher than before. And we will notice the new design of the bumper too.
Looking from the rear, there will be new taillights which will look like the ones on the Impreza and Crosstrek models. The all-new fifth-generation 2019 Forester will ride on the new Subaru Global Platform (SGP) with a lower center of gravity improving driving dynamics, a quieter cabin, and improved safety because of its higher rigidity and strength. . The platform should see improvements in noise, vibration and harshness levels as well as the possibility of a hybrid option. This will produce a smoother ride quality in the new Forester. It will feature its recognizable boxy shape and more truck-like look.
When it comes to interior, there are still no any photos or information about its look. However, for the new 2019 Subaru Forester, we can expect similar design of the cabin as the outgoing version. Of course, it will arrive with improved technology and more quality materials. The safety will be raised to the higher level with more standard features. Furthermore, because of the new architecture, the cabin will be much quieter now and more spacious too which means more comfort.
Under the hood
When it comes to the engine, some state the vehicle featured a host of chassis upgrades, though it’s 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-4 delivered the same 250-horsepower rating as the stock Forester 2.0XT. Others, on the other hand, believe Subaru may drop the Forester XT 2.0-liter turbo model for the 2019MY and they could also axe the 6-speed manual transmission gearbox when the new model arrives. This has not been confirmed by Subaru.
