Get to Know the Redesigned 2019 Subaru Forester at Conley Subaru!

The Subaru Forester continues to be a staple on the roads around Bradenton, FL and Tampa thanks to its wonderful capability and performance, but for 2019 the Forester raises the bar even higher, offering a multitude of upgrades and enhancements to make it the most advanced and well-equipped Forester model yet. With an upgraded engine, the Forester offers more standard horsepower than ever before, while the interior grows larger and more accommodating with standard entertainment and safety technology that lets you feel right at home whether it's a leisurely drive to Sarasota or an off road exploration in St Petersburg. Whether you need a vehicle that's family friendly or one with the versatility and features to continue serving your needs long into the future, there's a new 2019 Subaru Forester model that's right for everyone at Conley Subaru in Bradenton, FL!

Performance and Capability

For 2019, the Forester gets rid of the optional engine and instead enhances the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine to produce 182-horsepower. That's 12-horsepower more than the 170-horsepower from the standard 2.5 engine last year, all without sacrificing fuel economy to provide you with more get-up-and-go when you want it. The engine comes paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission but provides you with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters to give you the control and feel of a seven-speed automatic transmission with you at control of the shifts. The new SI-Drive system lets you select between intelligent or sport driving modes, letting you cater your experience behind the wheel to match whatever driving scenario is ahead of you. Every 2019 Forester model comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which not only allows you to enjoy the utmost traction and control when facing poor weather conditions and off road terrain but also makes driving around the city streets of Tampa easier than ever by eliminating under and oversteer for a controlled and confident driving experience wherever you go.

Interior and Exterior Features

The interior and exterior design aren't left out of the many additions and upgrades to the Forester for 2019. On the outside, all Forester models now come with front, side and rear underguards and lower body cladding, protecting the vehicle against the mud, rocks, sand and water that you could encounter on your adventures. There's also an all-new Forester Sport trim level that offers a gloss-black exterior trim with orange accents, giving it a unique and attractive look that will gain attention wherever you go. Inside the cabin, the Forester offers more space than ever before with 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. When you need the most storage space, you can fold down the rear seats and utilize up to 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space, and with a power rear gate and a larger gate opening this year, it's never been easier to access and store all your things. Enjoy premium features like a panoramic moonroof, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more!


The new 2019 Subaru Forester now comes equipped with a standard Starlink multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility also standard, letting you connect your mobile device wirelessly via Bluetooth and enjoy hands free calling, messaging, apps, music, maps and more. The Forester also now offers available 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to stay connected even when you're out of service. With an available Starlink multimedia navigation system, you'll never get lost and always be aware of where you're going and what's nearby.


One of the largest updates for the 2019 Forester is that every model now comes with a standard Eyesight Driver Assist Technology system, offering helpful features like adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane keep assist, and more! Other available features throughout the lineup include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, reverse automatic braking, LED steering responsive headlights, and more!
