Default 2019 Subaru Forester Sport Review


The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester adds a new model and a raft of new features to an already popular on and off-road crossover vehicle. Can the new technology, safety and comfort keep up with the competition like the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V?

In this video we take a look at the mid-range Sport model, which features blacked out details, orange highlights and a Forester-exclusive S# SI-Drive mode.

Same here!!! Just picked up a 19 sepia bronze premium and after being a little sad a couple of days for trading my 16' WRX Im starting to really fall in love with her!

Came on here hoping to find a forum already loaded with info, sadly I find none.
Did I miss the thread (im terrible w searching/finding the right info here)?

I was excited until I heard one of the review say 0-60 is 10 sec?

How slow can they be in 2019? What the hell, Subaru. I guess okay if you do a lot of offroading and crawling.

I like them. My only beef? They have one tailpipe but cutouts for two.

Holy crap, you're right! That does suck especially with that red/orange stripe making the cut out more obvious.

only thing that sets this apart is it has a Sport # option. and the price tag. everything else is aesthetic.

I want a Sport, but the rates suck and have sucked on that model for a few months now.

February 2019 Lease Rates for 36/15K

.00080 MF and 59% residual (Forester Premium) (~ 1.9% interest)
.00135 MF and 59% residual (Forester Sport) (~ 3.24% interest)
.00045 MF and 58% residual (Forester Limited) (~ 1% interest)
.00035 MF and 57% residual (Forester Touring) (~0.8% interest)

I believe the Limited actually ends up being ~$40 cheaper a month and the Touring can end up being about the same as the Sport.

Financing on the Forester is 3.49%.

Hummm.. I'm going to take a look in a couple of weeks to buy the Sport with the HK stereo and electric gate. My local dealer says they have a bunch of Sports coming in, but I'm worried they have the recalled Hitachi electric steering bits from Dec/Jan production. I want them to either replace the parts before taking delivery or just get a new batch post-recall.

I'm going to be paying cash so as long as I get a good price I do not care. I rarely buy cars on a loan or lease.

So I checked out the Sport my dealer had and while it was cool, it looked kinda clunky (or chunky) to me.. like a cheap Casio watch/Tonka feel especially the interior.

They had a Limited on display and I think I might do that instead. I'm probably just too old for that Sport appearance demographic.

Lots of other brand SUVs are now offering turbo models and Subaru decide to drop theirs when they already have the engine ready to drop in????

The reviews I have read the stability and handling of the new Forester is really good and better than most of its competitors!

I like the look of the sport it is just a shame that itís a dog. So many companies now are offering sporty suvs that are actually fast...Subaru has been doing this for a while and now that it seems like theres a decent market for it they suddenly drop the xt? Just seems like a big mistake to me since everyone wants a cross over these days...
