2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Find the Best Vehicle for Your Salt Lake City, Utah Lifestyle

2019 Subaru Outback VS 2019 Honda CR-V Comparison in Salt Lake City, UT

Sometimes thinking outside the box really can be rewarding. Take small SUVs, for example. The Honda CR-V is a great example of what the segment offers, with plenty of room for the family, high seating position, and car-like handling. However, if you look at a vehicle like the 2019 Subaru Outback--which is not technically a small SUV, but rather an AWD wagon--you'll find that you can have many of the same features, plus more. The Subaru Outback also has standard AWD, unlike most other small SUVs (the Honda CR-V included), giving you the ability to explore more of our beautiful state. There's much more that makes the Subaru Outback special, and we're glad to share it with you here. Once you've read about how these two vehicles compare, be sure to browse our huge inventory of new Subaru Outback models, and schedule a test drive to experience one for yourself.

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Interior Dimensions

Space is an important consideration when you're looking for an SUV, and the 2019 Honda CR-V does have a spacious 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. However, the 2019 Subaru Outback has even more: 108.1 cubic feet, more than two cubic feet greater than the passenger volume of the Honda CR-V.

Though these vehicles both have similar maximum cargo volume, Subaru has another trick up its sleeve. Every 2019 Subaru Outback is equipped with standard roof rails, making it easy to take along skis, kayaks, bikes, and more. Roof rails are available on the Honda CR-V, but you'll have to get the top trim level to have them.

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Tech Features

In today's connected world, it only makes sense that the Subaru STARLINK™ system that comes in the Subaru Outback would have standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto integration. You might be surprised to find, then, that these features are nowhere to be found on the entry-level 2019 Honda CR-V. You have to upgrade to the next trim level to have this convenient connectivity.

If you're already interested in getting a higher trim, Subaru once again has the advantage. While the Honda CR-V has an available nine-speaker audio system on its highest trim, the top three trim levels of the 2019 Subaru Outback all come with a Harman Kardon premium audio system with twelve speakers!

Compare the new 2019 Subaru Outback vs Honda CR-V Performance Differences

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Performance

We've already mentioned that the Subaru Outback is an AWD vehicle, but it bears repeating. Every 2019 Subaru Outback comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, making it exceptional for all kinds of off-road fun. You'll also find standard features like Hill Descent Control and X-MODE® (which provides better traction by adjusting the AWD as necessary). The Honda CR-V does have available AWD, but you'll have to pay more to upgrade.

Both the 2019 Subaru Outback and the 2019 Honda CR-V have two engine options. Though the power of the entry-level engines is similar, the Outback is equipped with a flat SUBARU BOXER® engine that gives it better balance and a lower center of gravity.

But if more power is what you're after, you'll find it in the 2019 Subaru Outback. The available six-cylinder BOXER® engine generates 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque! This is substantially more than the 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque you'll find in the available turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the Honda CR-V.

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Safety Ratings

Honda and Subaru are both known for their impressive safety, and neither of these SUVs disappoints. However, the Subaru Outback once again has the edge, according to industry experts. The 2019 Honda CR-V did earn the 2019 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the 2019 Subaru Outback won the even more impressive 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award from IIHS!


Compare the new 2019 Subaru Outback vs Honda CR-V Driver Assistance Technology

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Driver Assist Technology

Due to distractions everywhere, driving is perhaps more dangerous than ever these days. However, the 2019 Subaru Outback comes standard with Subaru EyeSight® driver assist technology, which has been found to lower rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85% through features like Pre-collision Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Departure and Sway Warning. Now, it's true that the CR-V has many of these same features under its Honda Sensing® tech, but there's a key difference. Every single 2019 Subaru Outback comes standard with EyeSight®. Honda Sensing® isn't even an option on the entry-level CR-V trim.
