2019 Subaru Forester: Everything You Need to Know

The Forester Sport’s black grille and black bumper cladding with orange accents. All 2019s have LED headlights.

The redone Forester gives up nothing on its traditional bad-weather and off-pavement capabilities, with high ground clearance and a sophisticated standard all-wheel-drive system. But the 2019’s improved interior materials, more premium features and better ride help it to take on compact SUV rivals in comfort, as well.

The changes were enough to propel the new Forester to a solid runner-up finish in our 2019 Compact SUV Challenge that compared seven redesigned or refreshed 2019 models, finishing second only to the repeat-winner Volkswagen Tiguan.

We’ve driven the redesigned 2019 Forester and had complete coverage from its New York auto show unveiling onward, including pricing, specs, our Challenge for Best Compact SUV of 2019 and much more.
