2017 Subaru Forester vs. 2017 Honda CR-V

The compact SUV market is competitive, and with so many options it can be difficult for drivers to decide which model is right for them; but compared with other popular compact SUVs, we think the 2017 Subaru Forester is the clear winner.

The Forester Offers Greater Value, and Standard All-Wheel Drive

Take the 2017 Honda CR-V for example; to begin with, this compact SUV has a higher base price than the Subaru Forester, so you're getting better value with the Subaru right out of the gate. Not only that, but the Forester comes standard with all-wheel drive, a feature you'll have to pay extra for on the Honda CR-V. This is a feature that's invaluable in inclement weather or unpredictable road conditions, and it's standard on every Subaru Forester model.

The 2017 Subaru Forester Puts Safety First

The 2017 Subaru Forester also wins the all-around safety competition with a Five-Star Overall rating from the NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) and perfect crash test scores plus a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). In addition, Subaru's state-of-the-art EyeSight suite package is available and offers additional safety measures such as reverse automatic braking that can't be found on the Honda CR-V.

The Forester Offers Performance, Comfort, and Versatility

The Forester doesn't make any sacrifices though, still offering a smooth, comfortable ride and secure handling; if you want to make your Forester even sportier, consider the available 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine - an option you won't find on the Honda CR-V. Of course, the Forester also offers innovative technology, exceptional cargo space, versatility, comfort…we could keep going!
