Common Questions About Subaru Forester
Towing Capacity and Cargo Space

Can a Subaru Forester tow? 

You can tow with your Subaru Forester compact SUV.  You may need to install a hitch but Forester's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive helps provide a balanced distribution of power for good towing stability.

What is the Forester towing capacity?

The 2019 Subaru Forester can tow up to 1,500 pounds.  That's not quite as much at the Subaru Outback at 2,700 pounds, but still respectable for the compact SUV class.  Forester also has Trailer Stability Assist which can apply the brakes to necessary wheels to maximize control of your vehicle while towing.

Did Subaru increase Forester's cargo space? 

The newly designed 2019 Forester boasts increased cargo space and a wider rear gate opening.  The 2019 Forester's cargo space is an impressive 76.1 cubic feet.  The power rear gate option can help you when you've got your hands full and the 60/40 split-folding seats can fold down and help you adapt to larger cargo items.
