There are a number of different things that you want in your next new vehicle. You want a vehicle that has the latest safety features, is fuel efficient, comfortable, and can handle whatever life throws your way. And with so many options in California, it may be hard to decide which compact SUV is right for you. But look no further than the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester which is setting the bar high for standard safety, spacious and flexible interior space, and spirited and efficient performance that lasts.

Subaru Safety

Advanced safety features are most often the most important feature that a new car has to offer Santa Clara drivers and one reason why the Subaru Forester is such a popular SUV. Subaru is known for their commitment to building safe and reliable vehicles that last for years, and the 2019 Forester is raising the bar with Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology standard on every model. EyeSight is the combination of Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management into one comprehensive package to monitor the road around you. The Forester also brings the first of its class distracted and drowsy driver mitigation system to the road. Subaru DriverFocus will monitor the driver for signs of fatigue and will alert them to take a break or to bring their attention back to the road. But the 2019 Subaru Forester has even more advanced safety features to offer that include Reverse Automatic Braking, LED Steering Responsive Headlights, and Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Powertrain & Performance

The 2019 Subaru Forester is the perfect blend of spirited and efficient, in addition to long-lasting and reliable quality that easily reaches the 200,000-mile mark, which is what Subaru is known for among San Jose drivers. Powering the 2019 Forester is an updated 2.5L four-cylinder BOXER engine that is more powerful and more efficient than before, with 182 horsepower and Auto Stop-Start technology, which helps the Forester get an impressive 33 highway mpg. The Forester wouldn't be a Subaru without standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for unparalleled traction and control on and off-road. For enhanced performance, the Forester is available with X-Mode with Hill Descent Control that works in tandem with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to reduce individual wheel spin for more gripping performance on slippery surfaces.


To add to the impressive list of advanced safety features, the 2019 Forester has a number of other advanced technology to offer Sunnyvale drivers. Like 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, Power Rear Gate, and STARLINK multimedia system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. There is also STARLINK Safety & Security which includes a number of features that you can control from your smartphone. You can remote start your Forester and use STARLINK Concierge service to talk with a personal assistant with tasks like navigation, restaurant reservations, and scheduling service appointments.
