Honda Pilot vs Subaru Forester: Performance

When it comes to offering a smooth ride and an easy-to-handle vehicle, both Honda and Subaru deliver. However, when it comes to what is found under the hood, there are some differences to take note of.

In the 2019 Pilot, you'll find the 3.5-liter V6 engine. This toughy generates 280 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This is the reason this SUV can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Add the available i-VTM4™ AWD system, and that number jumps to a whopping 5,000 pounds with the proper equipment.

The 2019 Forester's 2.5-liter engine, though solid, offers slightly less power, generating 185 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. And though this SUV comes equipped with the standard Subaru Symmetrical AWD, it can only haul up to 1,500 pounds.

2019 Pilot vs 2019 Forester: Cargo Capacity

When you're in the market for an SUV, having enough room for the entire crew, as well as extra space for belongings in the back is crucial. These two vehicles meet the test with cargo space, but one does come out on top.

The Subaru can hold up to five people in the spacious cabin with 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. It also has the ability to pack in tons of stuff in the back when the seats are folded down with an available 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

On the other hand, the Honda Pilot comes equipped with available 3rd-row seats. Meaning this SUV has the ability to seat up to eight people, using its 152.9 cubic feet of passenger volume to the fullest. When it comes to cargo space, it also beats out the Forester, coming in with a whopping 109 cubic feet when the seats are folded down.
