When Will the 2019 Subaru Forester Be Available Near Me in Maine?

It'll be arriving at Subaru dealerships in the Augusta neighborhood and nearby sometime this fall, but the latest Subaru compact SUV is already looking like it'll blaze new trails for seasoned orienteers from Portland and South Portland to Auburn and Bangor looking to explore our neck of the southern Maine woods. So, what else do we have to look forward to in the new 2019 Subaru Forester? Check out some of the questions we're frequently asked about it here at Charlie's Subaru.

What trims Does 2019 Forester come in?

There's a base model, a step-up Premium, Limited at the midrange, and a fully loaded model, Touring, as well as an all-new trim, Forester Sport.

What are the features of 2019 Forester Sport?

Sure to be a hit with performance enthusiasts, it'll offer eye-catching 18-inch wheels, LED lighting, roof rack tie-down points to secure cargo, an SI-Drive system that incorporates dynamic drive settings, and a new Enhanced X-MODE® with snow, dirt, and mud modes to make it easy to conquer nearly any terrain.

Will 2019 Forester be more powerful than last year?

Yes. Its SUBARU BOXER® engine has been updated to make it capable of delivering 182 horsepower, an increase from 2018.

What are some unique features of 2019 Forester?

  • Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which now builds in X-MODE and Hill Descent Control, also standard. Bring 8.7 inches of ground clearance into the mix, and you can count on reliably compensating for understeer and oversteer across diverse landscapes while dodging obstacles.
  • A standard Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission is set to provide up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg on the highway, making the crossover one of the most fuel-efficient around.
  • SUBARU STARLINK&#trade; Multimedia infotainment, improved for the model year. It now standardizes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it easy to bring your smartphone along for the ride. There's even an 8-inch version available with integrated voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom.

How much passenger and cargo space does 2019 Forester have?

  • Its interior spreads out up to 111.9 cubic feet, more than last year, and that includes a bump in back-seat legroom.
  • There's up to 76.1 cubic feet of room for luggage and essentials, better capacity than before, and it's accessible easily via an extra-wide rear gate that's optionally powered for opening and closing hands-free. Plus, with raised roof rails available, there'll be room for extras.

Is 2019 Forester safe?

Exceedingly so. For one, it's built on the new Subaru Global Platform, which means more extensive use of high-strength steel and, thus, better crash safety. But it's also home to advanced safety and driver-assistance features galore.

  • EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology now comes standard, offering wraparound protection.
  • The all-new DriverFocus system can recognize as many as five different drivers and recall everything from seat positions and climate settings to outside mirror positions. That means fewer distractions. Forester is actually the only small SUV to offer tech like this currently.
  • SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security has been improved. In addition to Automatic Collision Notification and SOS Emergency Assistance, it now features all-new Remote Engine Start with Climate Control, which you can manage using your smartphone. Plus, there's a new STARLINK Concierge service, which provides personal assistance navigating, making restaurant reservations, and scheduling auto service visits.

Of course, there's more to make the new 2019 Subaru Forester stand out among new Subaru cars and SUVs here in Augusta, ME, but we'll have to hold out until sometime this fall to check it out. Until then, you're welcome to stop by Charlie's Subaru here on 466 Western Avenue for a spin in the 2018 Subaru Forester to get a feel for what to expect. We'll be happy to take you out for a ride!
