Compare Subaru Forester Vs Honda CR-V

2019 Subaru Forester vs. 2019 Honda CR-V

All-Wheel Drive

The 2019 Subaru Forester features standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, a system that adjusts traction in real time for ideal response to New England temperatures and conditions during the holiday months. With the competing CR-V, all-wheel drive isn't offered standard. Instead, you will have to pay $1,400 extra as an option to configure your vehicle with all-wheel drive.

Driver-Assistance Technology

With Subaru EyeSight® standard on all Foresters, featuring active safety technology such as adaptive cruise control, the 2019 Subaru Forester is constantly monitoring surroundings to issue alerts and even intervenes when a dangerous driving situation is detected. Conversely, the Honda CR-V makes its Honda Sensing® available after an upgrade to the next trim level, a $2,900 upgrade.

Fuel Economy

Even with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, the 2019 Subaru Forester shows off its gas-sipping prowess when compared to the 2019 Honda CR-V. At a combined 29 miles per gallon, you'll appreciate the extra value of fewer gas station visits and more time spent on the open road around Cape Cod in your Forester.

Digital Connectivity

In the 2019 Subaru Forester, remaining plugged in throughout the drive is essential. Both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ come standard to support mobile app integration and access to your favorite smartphone features. For the Honda CR-V, these technology highlights are only available when you spend an additional $2,900 to upgrade to the next trim level.
