Interior - 2019 Subaru Forester

Inside, the 2019 Forester looks much like its Subaru siblings. While the design isn't the most imaginative one, it's nicely equipped and well-planned. You'll find a 6.5" infotainment touchscreen with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, while higher trims get an 8" touchscreen. The front seats of the 2019 Forester are supportive and firm, with height adjustments for passengers and drivers. The rear seats are spacious, thanks mostly to the longer wheelbase. Sport editions have gray and black upholstery with orange trim and contrast stitching, for an outdoorsy style that looks like something out of an L.L. Bean catalog. The Subaru Forester excels at many things, but its cargo capacity is one of the most notable. The tailgate opens wide, the lift-over height is low, and the cargo hold can hold almost anything you need to carry.

The 2019 Forester keeps the outdoors, well, outdoors, even when it's in the woods. This crossover utility vehicle has a surprisingly composed ride that belies its backwoods heritage. With its 182hp, 2.5L flat four, the Forester provides sufficient acceleration and a solid power to weight ratio. A manageable CVT makes the most of the engine's power; it's set up to offer ample acceleration from a standing start, and it makes the vehicle feel peppier than some of its competitors.

The chubby steering wheel on the 2019 Forester feels nice to the touch. It delivers responsive handling that's partly aided by a torque vectoring system that squeezes the inner wheel calipers during hard turns. The Forester absorbs the road's bumps and lumps with composure, and on the highway, it's a stable, quiet cruiser with great outward visibility.

As with most other Subaru models, all Foresters are outfitted with AWD. With 8.7" of clearance and traction controls that are accessible through a knob on the console, the 2019 Forester has greater off-road capability than its competitors. With the addition of winter tires, it's almost unbeatable.

Safety Features - 2019 Subaru Forester dealer

The 2019 Subaru Forester near Macomb County has not yet been crash tested, but it's equipped to avoid impacts. It has a long list of active safety features, and every trim comes with active lane control, auto emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Reverse auto braking and blind spot monitoring are optional on the Sport and Premium, and they are standard on the Touring and Limited trims. LED headlamps come on all Foresters, but the Touring and Limited models have steering-responsive headlights.

Furthermore, the Touring version has facial recognition tech that monitors drivers for signs of distraction and drowsiness, sounding an alert when discrepancies are found. While there's no camera, it can remember seat and audio system adjustments for up to five drivers. In testing, it quickly recognized drivers and made the appropriate adjustments. While the facial recognition feature may be unnerving to privacy-minded drivers, on the Forester, it's quite the functional feature.
