The Subaru Forester price represents a fantastic value proposition for those drivers that want a great SUV that offers something extra. This model looks very similar to the outgoing Forester, and this isn’t entirely surprising when you consider its popularity with the Aussie SUV buying public. However, a car manufacturer must continue to maintain forward progress to stay competitive. So, have Subaru changed just enough to entice potential buyers to make a purchase? Let’s find out.

A Quick Overview

As one would expect from a Subaru car, we have a wealth of safety features on board that more that justify the 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Also, as a Subaru, we have a full all wheel drive system in place that is tried and tested. The passenger door aperture is extra wide, and the four cylinder petrol engine is extremely fuel efficient for the segment at 7.4L/100km combined. Some people may not like the three year warranty and 12,500 km servicing intervals.

The Subaru Global Platform

The 2019 Subaru Forester is now underpinned by the Subaru Global Platform for the very first time. At a first visual glance, the changes are extremely subtle, but they are there if you’re at familiar with the outgoing model. The main benefit of using this platform has been the ability to use a wider range of configurations and yet still use the same powertrains. This is not particularly noticeable by the buyer, but in real terms, it has given us a Forester that’s both safer and larger. The older turbocharged petrol and diesel engines are now officially gone, and they have been replaced with a naturally aspirated powertrain instead.

Examining the New Forester Design

The pricing has been increased for the new Forester lineup, but to be fair to Subaru, there has been a quantum leap forward in terms of specification and design. At the front end, we now find C-shaped LED daytime running lights and LED headlights across the entire range. Better specified models get a matrix LED set of lights instead. The bonnet and front guards are now made from alloy to reduce weight without compromising strength. The lower fog light cluster is different, and the tail light now has a C-shaped hooped design complete with an LED cluster. The 2.5i and 2.5i-L both have 17” alloys wheels, and the 2.5i Premium and 2.5i-S are shod with 18” alloy wheels that have a larger sized brake rotor.

This is a bigger Forester, the length is now 4,625mm (up by 15mm), the width is now 1,815mm (up by 20mm), and the wheelbase is now 2,770mm (up by 30mm). Given the larger size, one could be forgiven for thinking that the new Forester would be hard to maneuver. In fact, the turning circle is only 10.8m, which is impressive for an all wheel drive SUV.
