2019 subaru forest: six things you need to know.


The subaru forest is unlikely to overturn the dominance of Toyota RAV4 and Honda cr-v in the sales rankings. However, the slightly smaller all-wheel drive crossover has been improved on its new generation of models. If you miss the unveiling of the New York auto show, here are six important things about the subaru forest in 2019:
A new design, but a familiar one.
Subaru did not make a frantic retrofit to the new RAV4, as Toyota did. But you’ll notice that the car USES a higher grille, a new body covering around the wheels, new taillights, new bumpers, and other updates. The new sports models are made of black glossy finished grille frames, black 18-inch wheels and orange dots around the body. Now compare your models for 2019 and 2018.
One engine, one transmission.
Subaru is simplifying its powertrain lineup. The revised 2.5-liter quadrangle is the only engine option that provides 182 horsepower and 176 pounds of torque. That’s 12 horsepower and 2 pound-feet above the previous 2.5 liter unit. Subaru has given up on the 250hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine, as only 5% of Forester buyers chose the engine.
In addition, subaru is getting rid of the standard six-speed manual transmission. Now, the only transmission is CVT. Some models have paddle shifters that simulate a 7 speed manual.
I hope there’s more space in the cabin.
Forester has been adept at providing enough space for passengers and cargo, and the new models should be more spacious. Subaru has opened up 1.4 inches of extra backseat legroom and more head space, hip and shoulder space. The cargo space is slightly increased and the floor is flat. The maximum width of the back door is 51.2 inches, 5.3 inches higher than the previous version, Subaru said.

Finally, an electronic parking brake.
On the old Forester, the traditional parking brake handle is close to the driver’s seat. Now a new electronic parking brake can open more space on the central console.
Larger infotainment screens and smart phone connections.
In 2018 Forester offers a standard 6.2-inch infotainment system and an optional 7-inch screen. The new model has a standard 6.5-inch screen or a usable 8-inch screen. Finally, subaru offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on Forester.
The interior was built to fight the soil.
Mr. Subaru knew that buyers would drag outdoor gear or put their dogs in the back seats every once in a while, so as not to get dirty. Therefore, in 2019, the forest people in the cargo area floor, the side and back door interior panel to fight against the surface of the surface of the dirt and wear marks. The back of the front seat also has PVC material at the bottom, which should be easy to clean.
