The Subaru Forester vs The Honda CR-V: Which SUV is the Better Buy for Texas Families?

Here at Randall Noe Pre-Owned Super Center in Terrell, TX, we are quite proud of all the quality used cars we have to offer, but when it comes to dependable crossover SUVs, the Subaru Forester is one that can stand out amongst the crowd. The Subaru brand is known for their long-lasting and resilient autos, with up to 97 percent of their vehicles released 10 years ago still on the road to this day. Here in Terrell, TX, we have a wide selection of pre-owned Subaru Forester models to offer at great prices, each from more recent model years with lots of user-friendly technology, a comfortable drive, and reliable safety features, giving you one crossover that can become a welcome addition to your growing family.

So, let us prove to you just how outstanding a pre-owned Forester can be, here at Randall Noe Pre-Owned Super Center, by comparing it against one of its top challengers among the crossover SUV lineup: the new Honda CR-V.

Performance

While both of these crossovers are fairly well-matched when it comes to engine horsepower, the Subaru Forester offers a key advantage in its drivetrain. For many years now, the Forester has come standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, offering maximized traction control on a variety of driving surfaces. This all-wheel drive system has continued to outperform the AWD systems of its competition, including that of Honda, though the Honda CR-V typically comes standard with front-wheel drive. The beauty of the Subaru Forester is that no matter which of our pre-owned models you choose, all-wheel drive will likely be a standard feature, giving drivers around Terrell the competitive advantage on any driving surface.

Interestingly, the Subaru Forester offers a fairly generous towing capacity through its engine options, despite the fact that the powertrain of these engines may fall short of the Honda CR-V. Despite this power difference, the Honda CR-V's towing capacity is unlisted, and this crossover SUV is generally not recommended for towing projects.

Interior Space

SUVs and cars undergo redesigns every so often in their histories, these two midsize crossovers in Terrell, TX are no exception. However, despite the changes that have occurred over the years, the Subaru Forester continues to stand tall as the roomier SUV overall and has consistently measured at a length over 180 inches and a wheelbase over 100 inches, while the Honda CR-V continues to fall short in its length and width, even after a recent redesign. Most of our recent Subaru Forester models offer considerably more head room and shoulder room for Texas families, due to their consistently spacious interior passenger volume, over a pre-owned Honda CR-V. Likewise, when you pop the trunk of the new Forester, you will find its cargo capacity to be quite satisfactory, even with the rear seatbacks sitting upright.

Features

The Subaru Forester stands as a trendsetter for technology among its contemporaries, being one of the first midsize crossovers of its class to offer new EyeSight Driver-Assist Technology on all trim levels, including the base. While these technologies have equivalents on Honda, through Honda Sensing, you will find that these features do not come standard on the base trim levels of even the most recent Honda CR-V SUVs. EyeSight Driver-Assist features include:

  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
