The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.

Completely redesigned for 2019
More powerful 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder engine
Subaru's EyeSight system is standard on all models
Increased passenger and cargo space
2.0-liter turbocharged engine has been discontinued

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
A full complement of driver assists is standard equipment
Off-road ability with better-than-average ground clearance
Generous cargo capacity

Cons
Handling isn't as composed as it is in some competitors
CVT automatic feels less responsive than a conventional automatic
Modest tow rating limits overall utility
Only available engine is underpowered

It looks visually similar to the last model, so has enough changed to entice buyers into the all-new Subaru Forester?

Pros
Loaded with safety and convenience features
Ultra-wide passenger door opening aperture
Full-time all-wheel drive system
Fuel efficient four-cylinder petrol engine

Cons
Archaic three-year warranty
12,500km service intervals
Higher starting price
