Why Choose the Subaru Forester Over the Honda CR-V?

Subaru Forester 2024
 
2024 Honda CR-V

When it comes to compact SUVs, the 2024 Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V are two of the most popular options on the market. Each offers a unique blend of performance, safety, and features, but which one is the best fit for you? Let's dive into a side-by-side comparison of these two contenders.

Performance

The 2024 Subaru Forester comes equipped with a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine, producing 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque.. This engine provides robust power for all your adventures while offering standard All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and a towing capacity of up to 3,000 lbs.

On the other hand, the Honda CR-V offers a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that churns out 190 horsepower. Although it has a slight edge in terms of horsepower, it falls short in towing capacity, offering only up to 1,500 lbs. Also, AWD is not standard but available as an option.

Safety
Crafted for Comfort

Subaru's commitment to safety shines bright in the 2024 Forester, outfitted with EyeSight Driver Assist technology as standard. This suite of safety features includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, and Pre-Collision Braking.

Honda also boasts a strong safety suite called Honda Sensing®, which includes similar features like Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Road Departure Mitigation System. However, it's worth noting that not all of these features come standard in the base model.

Quality and Comfort

Inside, both the Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V offer comfortable seating for up to five passengers. However, the Forester provides more overall passenger volume, ensuring a roomier ride for everyone on board.

In terms of infotainment, both vehicles offer compatible systems with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. However, Subaru's STARLINK Multimedia system is intuitive and user-friendly, providing seamless connectivity on the go.
