Are you looking for the right crossover to get around Cody, trek out on an adventure, and transport the whole family along with all of your luggage? The 2018 Honda CR-V has been fully redesigned, making an already competitive model an even more popular choice. It’s up against the Subaru Forester, and in a number of important areas, the new Honda CR-V proves its superiority. Compare the Honda CR-V vs. Subaru Forester below!

Subaru vs. Honda: Performance

The 2018 Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester are both offered with all-wheel drive, but the base engine on the Honda CR-V is more powerful than the base engine on the 2018 Subaru Forester. The CR-V model’s base 2.5L inline-four engine produces 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while the Forester model’s base 2.5L inline-four engine produces only 170 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque.

Subaru vs. Honda: Fuel Economy

Most crossover shoppers are looking for a vehicle with impressive performance, but they also expect good fuel economy. Opt for the Honda CR-V model’s available turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine to get up to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg city*. By contrast, there’s no version of the Subaru Forester that’s able to get better than an EPA-estimated 32 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.

Subaru vs. Honda: Interior Space

The 2018 Honda CR-V interior and 2018 Subaru Forester interior can each seat up to five adults. You and your passengers will enjoy more breathing room inside the CR-V, though. For starters, it offers more cargo volume for your belongings; you’ll find 75.8 cubic feet of cargo room inside the CR-V vs. 74.7 cubic feet inside the Forester. Additionally, second-row passengers will get 40.4 inches of legroom—that’s 2.4 inches more than the Forester.
