Heated front seats appear if you go with at least the Sport, which is the only variant with racing-style upholstery accentuated with orange stitching. Leather seat trim replaces cloth on the Limited and Touring. And the Touring is unique with its rear heated seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and a 2-position memory system. Standard comfort and convenience features on the Subaru Forester include a monochromatic multifunction display, cargo-area underfloor storage, STARLINK™ infotainment integration, four-speaker audio, an AM/FM radio tuner, a single-disc CD player, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone integration, HD Radio®, Bluetooth® wireless technology for audio streaming and hands-free phone operation, dual front-row USB ports for playing media via mobile devices, a four-month trial subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen. Upgrading to the Premium would add a removable cargo area tray, a panoramic power moonroof, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability, and upgrade the audio system with six speakers instead of leaving it at four.

At the Sport trim level, Subaru introduces two rear-seat USB ports, a color multifunction display (instead of the monochromatic one), and keyless access with push-button ignition. The Forester welcomes dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch color touchscreen (in place of the 6.5-inch), and an auxiliary audio jack at the Premium trim level. Exclusive to the Touring are a voice-activated 8-inch touchscreen navigation system and a 9-speaker 576-watt Harman Kardon stereo system.

Mechanical - Subaru Forester specs near Thornton CO

The Subaru Forester relies on a strut-type front suspension and a double wishbone rear suspension for a cushioned ride on any type of terrain. With electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, the vehicle has a turning circle rating of 35.4 feet.

Powertrain - Subaru Forester specs near Thornton

Powering the 2019 Subaru Forester is a 2.5-liter flat-4-cylinder engine, which generates 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes with an automatic stop-start system for eliminating engine idling and thereby improving fuel efficiency. Glued to the engine is a continuously variable transmission, which gets rid of gear shifting for a much smoother ride. However, for a little more excitement, go with the Sport or Touring, since either one has additional paddle shifters for more driver control. The Forester has standard all-wheel drive, with X-MODE® for even better tire grip on the road.

Safety Features - 2019 Subaru Forester dealer

Restraint and cushioning on the 2019 Subaru Forester is provided by two front impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Also on board are a rear vision camera, vehicle dynamics control, traction control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active torque vectoring, trailer stability assist, brake assist, brake override, electronic brake-force distribution, daytime running lights, and the EyeSight® driver-assist technology suite (for functions such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure and sway warning, and pre-collision braking). Security is provided by a theft-deterrent system that combines keyless entry with engine immobilization. Go with the Premium or a higher-level trim if you also want hill descent control. At the Sport trim level, Subaru adds high beam assist. The Limited and Touring stand apart from the other trims with the addition of blind spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as steering responsive headlight technology on the headlights.
