The 2018 Subaru Forester Faces Off Against the 2018 Honda CR-V at Subaru Superstore, Serving Phoenix

The venerable 2018 Honda CR-V is one of the fastest-selling crossovers on the market - but does that mean it's the best option for your family? When you consider the value of the 2018 Subaru Forester, you'll appreciate the greater cabin space, richer feature list and more available engine power - all of which can be had for less than a 2018 Honda CR-V. Stop by our dealership location in Chandler or schedule a test drive online. We're confident that, once you feel the BOXER® engine and experience the outstanding Subaru STARLINK® infotainment system, you'll agree: pound for pound and dollar for dollar, the 2018 Subaru Forester is the superior crossover to the 2018 Honda CR-V.

Comfort by Design in the 2018 Subaru Forester VS the 2018 Honda CR-V

Thanks to its tall cabin and angular stance, the 2018 Subaru Forester is one of the most comfortable crossovers available. With more space in the cabin for passengers and more head- and legroom in the front row than on the 2018 Honda CR-V, tall drivers and big families alike find more room to stretch out in the Forester. By volume, the 2018 Honda CR-V has more cargo space - but it's difficult to access due to the shape of the CR-V. Don't take our word for it: Car and Driver magazine explains, "Although the Forester's 34 cubic feet of cargo room behind its rear seats may not lead its class … the compact crossover's boxy aesthetic allows owners to exploit the available space more easily. The Forester requires no cargo-carrying compromises be made in response to a sloping roofline or an angled hatch eating into the available vertical space."

Comparing Performance of the 2018 Subaru Forester VS the 2018 Honda CR-V

Both the 2018 Subaru Forester and the 2018 Honda CR-V offer customers two engine options to choose from. The biggest engine you can put in a 2018 Honda CR-V is a turbocharged, 1.5L four-cylinder which gives a pedestrian 190 horsepower. Meanwhile, the available, 2.0L turbocharged flat-four BOXER® engine powering the 2018 Subaru Forester has 60 more horses and goes from 0 to 60 mph a full second faster than the fastest CR-V. You'll also get Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a Subaru mainstay, standard on every 2018 Forester. AWD costs extra on the 2018 Honda CR-V. Subaru also includes a sport-tuned suspension with the bigger engine, so the 2018 Forester drives smooth, swift and confident.

Safety and Tech inside the 2018 Subaru Forester VS the 2018 Honda CR-V

Both the 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Subaru Forester are remarkably safe crossovers, earning 2018 Top Safety Pick distinction from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, thanks to Subaru EyeSight® technology, there are more available active safety features on the 2018 Forester than the 2018 Honda CR-V. Reverse Automatic Braking, unavailable on the CR-V, allows the 2018 Subaru Forester to check behind you when pulling out of a parking spot or driveway - and engage the brakes automatically if it detects an object in your way. Subaru X-Mode and Hill Descent Control work in concert with the Symmetrical AWD system, measuring driver inputs and maximizing traction to keep you on the centerline - rain or shine, road or no road.
