Road Test Review of 2019 Subaru Forester
If you are one of those car lovers who take driving as an act of adventure, then there are many new models available around you that are specially made to satisfy your needs. To enhance its ability to drive off-and- on road performance, and to blow the minds of the onlookers who wish to test it out on road, Subaru has implemented a number of improvements that bring broad smiles on the faces of adventure seeking drivers.
Designed for Adventure
The reason why Subaru redesigned its Forester for the 2019 edition was explained by the experts of Chula Vista Subaru dealer. The compact sedan had to move with a more aerodynamic structure to go well with the wind and fly higher on speed even when the roads would lay a series of challenges in front of it. To gain that much off-road capability, the 2019 Subaru Forester is now coming with a ground clearance of minimum 8.7 inches, that brings with it the widest possible approach and the most convenient departure angles. The ramp in the Forester this year gets a break-over angle that is specially engineered to handle extreme off-road situations. Subaru claims that the new 2019 Forester is special for its excellent ground clearance that is now become even wider in range to perform more frequent off-road activities than it has done ever before.
The Forester can be termed as a small SUV for the ability it has shown in the most crucial road tests. Built on a specially framed new platform, it also gathers more space for the passengers in its latest cabin that can place the luggage with ease in its decent cargo area spreading over 76.1 cubic feet of cargo when the rear seats are folded down. The overhauling also includes better outward visibility, and a larger hatch opening.
Engine and Power Support
For all the trims mentioned above, the 2019 Subaru Forester gets a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine as standard that makes a 182 of hp and 176 lb.-ft. of torque, when paired to a CVT in a symmetrically spread all-wheel-drive system.
The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine of the 2019 Forester is said to be newly developed and is placed horizontally opposite to the Boxer engine to get an improved horsepower and torque providing a boost to the environmental preservation aspect through its improved fuel efficiency. The 2019 Forester can now run 33 mpg in the highway that is more by 1mpg from its yesteryear model.
X-Mode Off-Road Ability
The 2019 Forester now comes standard with the exclusive Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system from Subaru that includes all the optional modes of drives. With the new X-Mode controls engine and transmission, the Forester brakes exceptionally well on slippery surfaces and in every poor driving condition. In its Sport, Limited, and Touring trims there is a dial that allows easy switching between the two modes, improving the driver assistance in snow topped roads, through dirt, and mud.
At the Chula Vista Subaru dealership, we arrived at the conclusion that the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester always keeps its promise to deliver the best driving experience, irrespective of the kind of road you ask it to drive.
