Head-To-Head: 2018 Subaru Forester vs. 2018 Honda CR-V

 
There’s no denying that the compact crossover market is full of good options for drivers. Over the last several years, the crossover segment has grown both in the number of offerings and in popularity. Finding the perfect match for you can seem like a daunting task. However, here at Gillman Subaru Southwest, we’re helping you in your search by highlighting the 2018 Subaru Forester and how it stacks up against the 2018 Honda CR-V.

Both models are compelling options, but when it comes to easily get around the Pearland and Houston, TX areas, we prefer the 2018 Subaru Forester. 

The 2018 Subaru Forester is a compact crossover that packs a big punch in a relatively small vehicle. It excels for its roomy cabin interior, efficient fuel economy, standard all-wheel drive, high ground clearance, and optional turbocharged engine.

While the Honda CR-V does offer some compelling features like a new suspension and well-appointed interior, it doesn’t keep up with the Subaru Forester when it comes to handling and performance, especially when off-road. 

When it comes to base engines, the Honda CR-V admittedly offers a little bit more. The standard powertrain is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. The Subaru Forester comes with a 2.5-liter engine that makes 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. However, the Subaru Forester does offer standard all-wheel drive while the Honda CR-V does not.

When it comes to technology and driver safety aids, the Subaru Forester simply offers a better experience. Thanks to the Subaru EyeSight safety suite, you’ll enjoy everything from radar cruise control to lane keeping assist to reverse automatic braking and blind-spot detection.

Here at Gillman Subaru Southwest, we obviously love the 2018 Subaru Forester. That being said, we wouldn’t feel so confident in this model’s value if we didn’t compare it to other vehicles. When it comes to the two, the Subaru Forester offers more. To check out this Subaru crossover and take a test drive, visit us today.
