Compare 2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Honda CR-V near Hilton Head Island


The Subaru Forester VS The Honda CR-V

With any big purchase drivers from the Hilton Head area do some research to ensure they are getting the best deal possible. They check out the competition, see what safety features are offered and for how much. But you could spend hours reading through reviews trying to decide which vehicle is best for you. Which is why we have done the work for you and compared the Honda CR-V to the Subaru Forester in all the areas that matter most to drivers in the Beaufort area; interior space and comfort, safety, and most importantly price.

Interior Space & Comfort

It isn't often that you are sitting in the back seat of your own vehicle but you want your passengers who are sitting in the second row to be just as comfortable as your front seat passenger. And in the 2018 Subaru Forester all of your passengers will be comfortable. The Forester offers a more spacious second row, more front legroom, and roomier overall cabin than the Honda CR-V. The Honda CR-V has a total passenger volume of 10.59 cubic feet and 41.3 inches front leg room. The Subaru Forester, however, offers 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume and 43 inches of front legroom. One small area where the CR-V just barely bests the Forester is maximum cargo space. The Honda CR-V has a maximum cargo space of 76 cubic feet compared the Foresters 74.7 cubic feet. But if you have furry friends that ride in the way back the Subaru Forester will be a better choice with almost 2 inches more vertical space than the CR-V.


With more and more serious accident happening safety is always a top concern of drivers from all over the Garden City area. This may be the one area of both vehicles that is too close to call. Both vehicles are equipped with standard rearview camera, brake assist, and anti-lock braking system. Both vehicles received excellent crash test ratings and both offer advanced driver assist technology. The separation between the Forester and the CR-V is that every Forester is equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. But you may be asking yourself why do I need all-wheel drive when it doesn't snow here? Subarus Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive may be legendary at tackling deep snow but also is a key component of Subaru safety. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system optimizes traction and balance by being placed along the center line of the vehicle for even weight distribution. With power continually being supplied to all four wheels you will have outstanding traction and grip in all conditions.


Like most drivers in the Bluffton area the price of a vehicle matters. How much does it cost and what standard features are there? Because why should you pay more for less? This is another area where the Subaru Forester outshines the Honda CR-V. A base level Subaru Forester has a starting MSRP of $23,710. While the Honda CR-V starts at $24,958.
