Manama, 26 November, 2018: Motorcity, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has debuted the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester, the fifth generation of the best-selling SUV.
The 2019 Forester is built on the Subaru Global Platform to deliver significantly higher levels of driving pleasure, agility, crash protection, ride comfort and quietness. The all-new Forester is powered by an enhanced direct-injection, 154 HP 2.0-litre four-cylinder BOXER paired with a standard Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). Also standard on all trim levels is Subaru’s legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and the award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology.
Unveiling the all-new SUV, the Motorcity Chairman, Mr. Waleed Kanoo stated, “We are extremely proud that the 2019 Forester admirably represents our commitment to provide customers with vehicles made to the highest standards of safety and versatility for great value. Our goal is to deliver exceptional vehicle brands with world-class service support to ensure complete peace of mind.”
The 2019 Forester debuts a more rugged style that showcases Subaru’s new design language while retaining a strong family resemblance to the rest of the brand’s portfolio. The exterior has shoulder lines that follow around the pillars to emphasize height and strength. Prominent wheel arches emphasize the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system’s functionality.
The roomiest Forester cabin yet is also the quietest, thanks to the Subaru Global Platform’s inherent resistance to noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Road noise is significantly reduced and Subaru has worked to tune out certain frequencies to make conversation or listening to music at highway speeds more comfortable.
Forester’s interior has been designed for both greater passenger comfort and increased durability in everyday and recreational usage. New front seats, are constructed to enhance comfort on long drives. A new Electronic Parking Brake frees up console space by eliminating the traditional parking brake handle.
The 2019 Forester is the best-equipped ever, adding features such as EyeSight, LED headlights, SI-DRIVE Engine Performance management, Active Torque Vectoring, Automatic Climate Control, Electronic Parking Brake, and a panoramic power moonroof.
Priced from BHD8,995 onwards, the 2019 Subaru Forester offers a 5 year/150,000 Kms warranty, along with complimentary one year insurance, registration, rust protection, roadside assistance and a service package.
