2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Honda CR-V Design Comparison

When you first see the exterior design of the new 2017 Subaru Forester and the 2017 Honda CR-V, they both present themselves with a sleek modern design that speaks well of their respective makers. However, when you look beyond the appearance, significant design differences come to light. Among the many things that makes Subaru an industry leader in safety is the exceptional visibility offered by large windows with minimal obstruction by the roof pillars. While the large rear roof pillars of the new Honda CR-V may look nice from the outside, you'll find they make for a much larger blind spot than the redesigned Subaru Forester. Though you'll pay more for a new Honda CR-V, that extra money doesn't afford more passenger space than the 2017 Subaru Forester which provides nearly two and a half cubic feet more passenger space than the Honda.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Honda CR-V Performance Comparison

Performance is an area that Subaru takes to a new level that's unmatched by the rest of the industry. The new 2017 Subaru Forester is a great example with your choice of BOXER® engines. This unique engine design sits flat with horizontally opposed cylinders which means a more quiet and smooth ride with a lower center of gravity. Because of this, you'll be able to overcome obstacles with a higher ground clearance of 8.7 inches while still enjoying the comfort and precision handling more commonly found in cars. The 2017 Honda CR-V only offers one traditional four-cylinder engine that can be upgraded with forced induction for a whopping six additional horsepower. That won't come close to the 250-horsepower offered by the available turbocharged BOXER® engine in the Subaru Forester. What's more, every new Subaru Forester is equipped with the legendary traction of symmetrical all-wheel drive technology. The new Honda CR-V may be more expensive, but you'll have to pay even more for their version of all-wheel drive.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Honda CR-V Safety Comparison

A new small SUV is great for families, but even if you're enjoying the daily commute, safety is a key factor in any decision regarding a new vehicle. The Subaru Forester is an industry leader on the subject with IIHS Top Safety Picks every year since 2007. In fact, the newly redesigned Subaru Forester earned the prestigious 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick + award* when properly equipped. The 2017 Honda CR-V is also recognized as being safe, but consider some important distinctions. Both models are available with driver assistance technology like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and pre-collision braking, but you'll only find advanced safety features like steering responsive headlights and foglights available on the new Subaru Forester. Beyond its stellar reputation as an industry leader in safety, the Subaru Forester proves its quality with an amazing 98% of models sold over the last 10 years still on the road today and going strong.
