The Redesigned 2019 Subaru Forester Makes for Easy Daily Commuting and Family Driving Around Manassas and Alexandria

The Subaru Forester has earned well-deserved praise and accolades pretty much since it was first introduced so many years ago. It's certainly understandable to think Subaru could simply stick with what works and enjoy the success of this now-iconic small SUV, which has always balanced its capabilities with efficient and safe driving manners. But if you know our favorite brand, you know Subaru is never satisfied with what works. That's what makes the redesigned new 2019 Subaru Forester such an exciting vehicle for drivers from Alexandria, Fairfax and Herndon. Taking the best of its previous versions but upgrading in several areas, adding a standard safety suite and improving its performance, the new 2019 Forester makes every visit to our Manassas, VA Subaru dealership worth it.

What's Can Drivers Expect for 2019?

As you'd expect from Subaru when it offers a redesign, the new 2019 Forester welcomes some key upgrades while largely sticking to what works. Notable changes include dropping the previous version's optional turbocharged engine while making the now-lone 2.5-liter four-cylinder a little stronger without sacrificing anything from its impressive fuel-economy figures. While redesigning the Forester, Subaru also made some subtle tweaks and design changes that give you more passenger and cargo space, which was already impressively ample in the previous version.

The other main change to the new 2019 Forester is that the Subaru EyeSight safety suite is now standard, meaning you'll get a full range of driver aids right in the base level. That's going to be key for family drivers who need to navigate the busy and congested Beltway traffic around Chantilly and Centreville.

2019 Subaru Forester Safety and Technology

The new 2019 Forester is offered in five trim levels, with the top Touring edition providing you with a setup that matches most luxury brand small SUVs. But starting with the base level, you'll have a generous amount of standard technology, including a 6.5-inch touchscreen for your infotainment features, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, Bluetooth, a CD player, satellite radio and more. Higher trims will add tech like a Wi-Fi hotspot, a larger touchscreen, upgraded audio equipment and more, as well as amenities like a sunroof, power liftgate and premium leather seating.

On the safety front, the now-standard Subaru EyeSight suite includes lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and pre-collision warning with automatic braking. Starting at the next level up, the Premium trim, you can add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert to your Forester, and finally, automatic reverse braking is an option in the Limited edition.

2019 Subaru Forester Performance and Capabilities

While a lot has changed with the new 2019 Forester, the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive remains the same, giving you a level of traction and control that's costly to add onto similarly styled SUVs from competing brands. That AWD system will be especially helpful during spells of rainy or even snowy weather here in Manassas and around the Alexandria and northern Virginia areas.

The new and improved 2.5-liter four-cylinder is now the lone engine option for the Forester, and as sales figures proved in the previous edition, that's all drivers really want anyway. This well-balanced engine provides 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, giving you a slightly better sense of performance for your travels around the D.C. area, while still earning a strong 33 mpg rating on the highway. That level of efficiency is especially impressive when accounting for the standard AWD, a feature that typically decreases mpgs in other kinds of SUVs.
