2019 Subaru Forester Redesign, Price, Dimensions
2019 Subaru Forester Redesign – A road test and on the mud of Subaru Forester model year 2019. The Japanese have just presented to the Italian press the restyling of the average Suv in 2013 arrived at the fourth generation. New products are mainly aesthetic, they see some tinkering both external and internal. Have also been upgraded and improved equipment. As always the technical choices that are the trademark of Subaru: the boxer engine also diesel, symmetrical all-wheel drive and, for some years now, the X-Mode to easily overcome impossible terrain, too. Our staff has been able to test both on ordinary Street within a motocross circuit, where the Forester, often through the mud and steep ramps, gave the best of himself. Let’s find out then the Subaru Forester 2019.
2019 SUBARU FORESTER REDESIGN: MODERN AND ROBUST, ACCORDING TO TRADITION
External aesthetic innovations of 2019 Subaru Forester are concentrated in three points: front bumper, headlights, and circles. The bumper was modified in its lower part, now rounded wheel arches; It’s even bigger black protection around the fog lights. The headlights now include standard daytime running lights and Led position, excluded fitting Free; their design forms a large C squared off. The idea is to draw the eyes of a hawk. The same pattern is found in the tail lights, which integrate the brake lights and rear fog lamp with Led. As for the fog lights, is clearly visible chrome plating to L that delimits. It also changed the design of the 18-inch alloy wheels, and by that measure from 17. Both have a solid two tones/black. Changed finally the Hubcap, colored aluminum or black. As for the body, there are 16 colors. It’s a new solid called Sepia Bronze Metallic, i.e. Metallic bronze.
2019 SUBARU FORESTER DIMENSIONS SIZE AND TRUNK
I am not, of course, change the measurements of the Subaru Forester in version 2017, precisely because this is a makeover. The total length is 4,595 mm, the width of 1,795, the height of 1,735; the step size 2,640 mm. The minimum height from the ground is 220 mm. The curb weight, depending on the model, ranges from 1,485 to 1,645 Kg.
As for the trunk, the maximum capacity amounts to 1,592 liters. The rear seats are split. Once tipped to become perfectly level, further facilitating the arrangement of the load. The low opening the trunk makes it easy.
2019 SUBARU FORESTER INTERIORS LOOK MORE GROOMED
The differences in the Interior of the 2019 Subaru Forester are primarily in coatings. Now the soft-touch material is used, more soft and pleasant to the touch, all the parts most affected by driver and passengers. Improved generally all details. renewed the seat upholstery, both with natural leather fabric versions. To improve the soundproofing window seals were used, which now have a greater thickness. Electrical controls for the driver’s seat adjustments allow you to find the correct position in an instant. Space is large, both front and back. The front of the dashboard has a new two-tone gloss black/aluminum profile. Also updated the multifunction steering wheel, whose racial inferiority is in silver. As for communications and entertainment, all enclosed in the system that Subaru called Starlink, displayed on a touch screen 7 inch. Includes, depending on the model, Navigator and Bluetooth connections required for smartphones. The commands are replicated at the wheel. For those who own an iPhone, there’s also recognition Siri. In the top of the line sound system is Harman/Kardon, for 8 speakers. Finally, information on the functioning of the car are shown on the trip computer, located above the vents; It is configurable and the screen has a very good legibility.
ENGINE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, MANUAL, PERFORMANCE AND POWER CONSUMPTION
The four-cylinder boxer engines are tested, updated specifications Euro 6. We have two 2.0 petrol engines with aluminium heads and stand, in addition to the double variable valve timing: a naturally aspirated 150 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and a peak torque of 196 Newton-meters at 4,200 rpm, equipped with multipoint sequential fuel injection; then top of the line, the powerful direct injection turbo XT 241 HP at 5,600 rpm and torque of 350 Nm from 2,400 to 3,600 rpm. The 2.0 common rail turbo diesel, also with the engine block and aluminum cylinder heads, delivering 148 HP at 3,600 rpm and a maximum torque of 350 Nm from 1,600 to 2,400 rpm. Inevitable as boxer engines are symmetrical permanent all-wheel drive (all system components have a symmetrical arrangement along the longitudinal axis of the car. This, together with the horizontal engine, helps to lower the center of gravity of the car, improving the handling). There are two types of transmissions, depending on the version. Where the change is 6-speed manual gears, the limited slip Center differential distributes torque between the two axles and a viscous coupling checks the difference in rotational speed. the base pair is distributed to 50% between the two axles. Instead in combination with the continuously variable automatic transmission Lineartronic, there is no Center differential. We find the active torque distribution system; under normal conditions is at 60% at the front but, in critical situations, can vary in real time; also changes the gear ratio of the gearbox. The traction control system X-Mode is one of the highlights of the Forester and also in 2016 is perfect. Is activated by pressing a button; is designed for land very rough and steep slopes: then the typical use in off-road heavy. It’s a gem. A look at performance, although this is not a car created for racing. The naturally-aspirated 2.0 accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in 10 ″ 6; the turbo petrol snaps into 7 ″ 5; There are 9 ″ 9 for diesel. Top speed 221 mph for turbo petrol, 190 for the other two. Recalling that, as consumption most interesting a Suv, we have a body of important weight, high ground clearance and aerodynamic force not efficient. Combined tests, i.e. the average consumption, the House says 6.9 liters per 100 Km for the aspirated; 8.5 for the turbo petrol; from 5.7 to 6.3 for diesel.
The proof of the Subaru Forester 2.0 turbo diesel motor model 2019 occurred and Sports Unlimited. In road comfort is good. The engine has the necessary power to accomplish overtaking smoothly, the curves are never a problem: no uncertainty or fast ones in those holds. The trim is soft enough not to suffer a level of comfort without compromising handling that, for a Suv, it is excellent. But it’s on-road routes that lovers of these things can really have fun, without the need for a specialized vehicle (which on the tarmac becomes a torture). In the Motocross circuit situated near Milan Malpensa, the Forester has drunk strong gradient ramps on the ground, deeply uneven and highly tarnished, both uphill and downhill, without the slightest pain. Here an important part has covered the system X-Mode: in the steep climb again so precise the couple on all four wheels to guarantee sufficient traction to continue; steep descents you could take your feet from the pedals, the system went out alone, acting also on the brakes to go down without slipping. Fantastic.
