The 2019 Subaru Forester has arrived, and has been fully redesigned inside and out. Confidence is built right in, thanks to standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2019 Forester also features increased passenger and cargo room, along with an updated SUBARU BOXER® engine and SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia system — now with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. And to help prevent distracted or drowsy driving, the all-new DriverFocus system is available on the 2019 Forester – the only compact SUV to offer an advanced safety technology system of this kind.

Safety for All

Standard EyeSight®
Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is now standard on all Forester models for an extra set of eyes on the road and added safety on every drive. It monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.

Subaru DriverFocus

The 2019 Forester features an all-new state-of-the-art system that helps reduce distracted driving for both new and experienced drivers. Each day in the United States, more than 1,000 people are injured in crashes reported to have involved a distracted driver. Working with our award-winning EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the new DriverFocus system is like having an attentive co-pilot along for the ride, available to give a helpful alert if a driver becomes distracted or drowsy. For added convenience, DriverFocus can also recognize up to five different drivers and remember their preferences, including seat position, climate controls, and outside mirrors.

All-Around Awareness

A suite of safety technologies is available on the 2019 Forester to help protect you and your passengers. The Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, and a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances visibility when reversing. And with available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.

SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security

The latest STARLINK Safety and Security system includes Automatic Collision Notification to alert first responders when an airbag deploys, and SOS Emergency Assistance to lend a hand when you encounter trouble on the road.
All-new Remote Engine Start with Climate Control, accessible via your smartphone, ensures your Forester is ready and comfortable. There’s also the new STARLINK Safety and Security Plus Concierge service for personal assistance with tasks like navigation, restaurant reservations, and scheduling service appointments.

With 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE with Hill Descent Control, almost any destination is within reach.

Quality That Lasts

Built for the Long
Road Ahead

The Forester will be with you on all the journeys ahead — 97% of Forester vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today. That long-lasting quality is one reason why Forester retains its value better than any other vehicle in its class for 2018, according to ALG.
