Does anyone know if you can order the 2019 Forester Sport with leather? All other options from Touring (except Driver Focus) appears to be available. TIA.

No. The Sport is only available with a unique to the Sport gray cloth upholstery package with orange stitching highlights which are integrated with stitching in the door panels and to the dash, etc.

There are several things you can't get on the Sport found on the Touring. Power passenger seat, dual climate control, dual memory mirrors, rear heated seats and heated steering wheel are a few.

Dual climate control is available on the Canadian model. Not sure why US models didn’t get it.

Also, the American version has the low beams for DRLs on the sport model, but the Canadian model has the led strips on the outside of the headlight housings.

I was originally looking at a Sport and once you do the numbers might as well step up to a Limited at least if you want Leather.


You can go the Katzkin route which we did for the Legacy, but was only because of the cost difference between a 2.5I Premium and the 2.5 GT at the time.(Wife wanted a stick, so it was Premium or GT) 1k for leather was a lot less than the 10k price difference.

Even the Katzkin from 2011 has held up very well and as good as any OEM leather I've seen.

But with the price jump from a Sport to a Limited only being 2k- the Katzkin Kit just doesn't make sense.

The dealer I purchased at had base trim level vehicles on the lot with aftermarket leather. They looked good. I'm guessing they would be applicable to the Premium and Sport. There has to be options the dealers have access to locally.
