For the 2019 model year, the Subaru Forester brings a quiet revolution in redesign, while remaining true to the spirit of its decades-long popularity. Attention to detail in the cabin is where the new design really shines, bringing in quality materials and a higher level of soundproofing to block road noise as you cruise through Danbury. The Forester comes in five trim levels that add extra paint colors and variations in exterior styling.

All trims share the same engine design, a 2.5-liter H4 gas engine with 182 horsepower. Its towing capacity is 1,500 pounds with aid from 176 pound-feet of torque, enough power to handle a trailer with an ATV or personal watercraft. The continuously variable transmission is a seven-speed with overdrive. All-wheel drive is a consistent feature across all trim levels. Highway speeds yield a gas mileage of 33 miles per gallon while city driving yields 26 miles per gallon.

The rear liftgate is particularly impressive, measuring far wider than other SUVs in the Forester's class, perfect for loading large items into the 35-cubic-foot cargo area. When lowering the seats, drivers can add an additional 41 cubic feet of space. The two-toned interior of the Forester gives subtle style while protecting the seats with durable, rip-resistant material. The console features a prominent touchscreen with a backup camera screen poised just above, giving you added convenience when you need to head out of Waterbury.

The exterior features an appealing, no-nonsense design, with roof rack-ready railings and tough bumpers. The exterior color range includes the appropriately forest green Metallic Jasper. Higher trim levels have a Deep Snow or Mud setting that adds further traction to each wheel. The six-inch touchscreen syncs to a smartphone by utilizing either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The Forester comes with Subaru's EyeSight safety package, which includes the monitoring of surrounding traffic, alarms for lane departure, pedestrian cross traffic and driver distraction. The Forester will monitor for driver fatigue and can recognize up to five faces, giving a personalized greeting to each.
