    2019 Subaru Forester Gallery

    Design

    Subaru took an evolutionary approach to the fifth generation Forester with a familiar and distinct design. The most notable change is the C-shaped tail lamp design.

    Dimensions

    2019 Subaru Forester Dimensions
    Length 4,625 mm
    Width 1,815 mm
    Height 1,730 mm
    Wheelbase 2,670 mm

    Lighting

    All variants are fitted with LED headlamps and LED tail lamps. On the entry 2.0i-L variant, the DRL and front fog lamp are halogen units while the variants are LED. On the 2.0i-S variant and up, the head lights swerve according to the steering input.

    Wheels

    The 2.0i-L gets 17-inch wheels with 225/60 profile tyres, while variants above it get 18-inch wheels with 225/55 tyres.

  • Interior

    Dashboard

    Similar to the Subaru XV, the upper part of the dashboard utilizes soft materials with contrasting stitching. It also has a wraparound design that flows to the doors.

    Instrument cluster

    It sports similar gauges to the previous generation Forester, with 2 analog dials and a multi-function display at the middle.

    Space and practicality

    The space inside is generous, with more than sufficient headroom and kneeroom at the rear. Door pocket size and centre storage space are average.

    Boot

    Boot space is almost CR-V large at 520 litres and load lid is fairly minor.

    2019 Subaru Forester Specs and Features

    Safety features

    •    Pre-Collision Braking
    •    Lane Change Assist
    •    Rear-Cross Traffic Alert
    •    Side View Monitor
    •    Blind Spot Detection
    •    Lead Vehicle Start Alert
    •    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Comfort features

    Standard across the range are dual-zone automatic climate control with rear air vents, 8-way power adjustable driver and passenger seat, reclining rear seats and all seats are wrapped in leather.

    Infotainment

    All variants get an 8-inch infotainment display with a USB port, auxiliary and HDMI input. Audio is channelled through 6 speakers.

  • Powertrain

    Engine

    All variants are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-four engine making 156 PS and 196 Nm of torque.

    Transmission

    All variants feature a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters.

    Drivetrain

    The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is standard across all variants.

  • Driving Performance

    Engine performance

    At a kerb weight of around 1,500 kg, power is sufficient rather than stonking.

    Transmission performance

    The CVT mimics a traditional automatic transmission for a more natural feel and response is reasonably quick.

    Steering and Handling

    Steering is direct but not quite as sharp as the Mazda 3. It goes through corners with minimal body roll and holds its line confidently, which a quite a feat for an SUV.

  • Ride Comfort

    Sound proofing

    Cabin noise is commendably low. Mechanical noises are very well suppressed but wind noise becomes apparent at highway speeds.

    Passenger comfort

    The suspension is on the stiffer side but still remains reasonably pliant over broken surfaces. The rear seat bench is a little flat and could do with a more inclined angle.

  • Fuel Economy

    The Subaru Forester is rated at 7.4 litre/100 km in combined driving conditions.

  • Conclusion

    The Subaru Forester is an SUV for those who require more in terms of capability, particularly off-road. The interior is spacious, noise levels are low and handle remarkably well.

    With the EyeSight suite of ADAS on the range topping variant, it makes a compelling case for itself.
