2019 Subaru Forester

It'd be really nice if the redesigned 2019 Forester would be just a little bit bigger. I really could use an inch or so more leg room in the drivers seat.

Cool concept, but clearly missing the classic C-window, standard since the first Forester, no? That would add the length. Looks like a Evoque/X2/Edge/RX designed for city-kids.

Looks like a shopping trolley that you probably couldn’t even fit the shopping in.

That is likely the concept showing the evolution of the XV Crosstrek, not the Forester.

I hope this is not the future Forester because it looks tiny and 2 doors. :( How in the world can full size adults get in it?

Since I have a forester, I am a bit biased... but this "new" design (IMHO) should not be a Forester. It looks nice, but it looks as if it were designed specifically for the European market.

4 doors, look at the pictures from the link, the rear doors open the opposite way, back in the olden days they called 'em suicide doors, cause you might have to open them into oncoming traffic.

Thanks for pointing that out. My eyes are not what they used to be.

Not so much suicide, but sliding--like a minivan.

they are like the doors on a FJ Cruiser, with less blind spots

A production vehicle won't have those doors.

That design compromises safety because you don't have a solid B pillar. My old extended cab truck was not highly rated for safety because of the doors. This is why you see Chevy now making normal doors for their extended cabs.

Subaru concepts always look amazing... and then the production versions fizzle.

Nooooooo! That's the point of the Forester. It's a small SUV. For people who don't need huge ones or even mid-sized ones. It's already grown significantly. I love my 2014 but it doesn't have the character of my 2001 and 2008. Bad enough I can't get it in a manual unless I go for the lowest trim. Any bigger and it will be a completely different vehicle.

Oh, look. Crappy little windows that you can't see out of.

So there would go one of the reasons we bought our Forester. You can actually see out of it, unlike most of the competition.
