Honda CR-V

First impressions aren't everything, but they're still very important. The crossover that you choose needs to look just as good as it performs.

Cozy Crossover Cabins

Luckily, both the Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester offer a variety of similar interior features, including:

  • 60/40-split folding rear seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Moonroof

Inside, the CR-V and the Forester each have a sleek and stylish cabin with high-quality materials and a variety of features. The easy fold-down 60/40-split rear seatback, power-adjustable seating, and upscale luxuries like leather upholstery are available on both, but there are some important differences to consider.

A Step Above

Both SUVs offer seating for five, but the CR-V gives the folks in the back more room to stretch out. It boasts 40.4 inches of rear legroom while its competition maxes out at just 39.4 inches.

The driver's seat in the CR-V also offers more ways in which to keep you supported. Its available 12-way power-adjustment seat beats the 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat in the Forester.

If it's the little things that make the biggest difference in comfort and style, the Honda offering certainly seems to have a more memorable cabin.

If you're looking to haul a lot of cargo, the Honda CR-V may be the better choice for you.

The Subaru Forester only offers 28.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, falling short of its competitor. Even with the rear seats lowered, there's only 74.2 cubic feet of cargo room.

A well-balanced and thrilling performance is a must-have for your crossover, whether this is your daily driver or just your weekend-fun car. Fortunately, both vehicles strive to deliver as much satisfaction as possible.

Drive With Confidence

The Honda CR-V comes standard with a 190-horsepower, 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine. That's paired with a continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode. All the models are also available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

The Subaru Forester comes standard with a 182-horsepower, 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® engine. It just doesn't match up to the power produced by the base CR-V trim. If you're looking for more thrills, the winner is clearly the CR-V.
