The 2019 Subaru Forester is expected to be advanced in all areas compared to the current 2017 model. The vehicle will be built using the Viziv platform meaning lightweight materials will be used. We should, therefore, expect a light vehicle with larger body dimensions. The platform will also allow the use of a hybrid system on the vehicle. It is also expected that the vehicle will utilize Subaru Global Architecture hence drastic improvements in terms of improved safety and a wider power train adaptability. The body will be built using large amounts of high tensile steel in order to improve the rigidity of the vehicle hence increased impact absorption.
2019 Subaru Forester – Minor Improvements:
The exterior of 2019 Subaru Forester will be sleeker than all previous models. The front grille will be hexagonal and its headlights will borrow their design from previous models but with some minor improvements. These headlights will use HID technology meaning that they adapt their light intensity automatically depending on the prevalent weather conditions. We should also anticipate a more aggressive front bumper on this model. Eighteen-inch alloy wheels will be used on this vehicle.
Just like previous models, the 2019 Subaru Forester will have a practical and comfortable interior. Its seats will be more comfortable to allow for long rides without passengers and the driver getting tired. This model will also have more space compared to its predecessors hence increasing the comfort of its passengers. The rear of the vehicle will also have increased cargo space. Interior finishing will definitely use new and fresh materials making the interior stylish and spectacular. The redesigned dashboard will offer a huge touchscreen. Most physical controls are expected to be virtual on this model. The steering wheel in this model will be light hence increasing handling.
The safety features in 2019 Subaru Forester will be borrowed from Subaru’s safety plus system. This system will be semi-autonomous delivering some level of self-driving. Collision detection and bottles driver assistance are some of the anticipated features in this SUV. The vehicle’s security alarm will also be top notch while a health report system warning the driver of problems that might affect vehicle performance will be installed.
2019 Subaru Forester – Performance:
The performance of 2019 Subaru Forester will be advanced compared to previous models. The use of the new platform will allow different power trains on this vehicle. These include electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and petrol. The vehicle is expected to use a similar engine to the current models. Its base engine will hence be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. Improvements on this model will make it deliver 170 HP. An optional 2.0 turbocharged engine will also be available. This will deliver 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. The transmission will be a six-speed manual and CVT. Other improvements include improved suspension, torque vectoring and steering system. The standard all-wheel drive system will be used and probably have some minor improvements.
