2018 Forester Takes on the Competition

The 2018 Subaru Forester is a driver-friendly, five passenger crossover with plenty of features, a durable design, and the quality associated with the Subaru brand. Our new inventory has plenty of well-equipped Foresters and we are particularly excited about this 2018 model, but how does it stack up to the competition? Today we are going to see how the Forester compares to the 2018 Honda CR-V.

2018 Forester vs Honda CR-V

  • The Forester packs a lot more performance in its standard model. The standard 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER four-cylinder engine provides plenty of power while maintaining an impressive max 32 mpg. The CR-V doesn't really see much performance without a costly upgrade to the turbocharged engine. All wheel drive is also standard on the Forester and optional on the CR-V.
  • Even with the extra base performance, the Forester starts at $22,795 as opposed to the CR-V's $25,125 starting price.
  • The Forester is designed with Subaru's commitment to adventure in mind, as such it is equipped to handle any road conditions. With 17- or 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, Hill Descent Control, and 8.7 inches of ground clearance the Forester will get you where you need to be no matter what the conditions. The CR-V has a 7.8 inch ground clearance and doesn't have as many features to help tackle poor conditions.
  • You will also notice that the Forester has the advantage by a couple inches in several of the passenger seating specs with a little more front leg room and wider back seat.



We ultimately think that while the Honda CR-V is a good crossover SUV, the Forester pulls ahead with its excellent value, enjoyable drive, and better handling in poor conditions. Stop by Cityside Subaru today and test drive a Subaru Forester in Belmont today.
