When it comes to performance, the Forester is a better off-road vehicle than the Toyota RAV4. It also has a more powerful engine available: a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Although the Toyota does come equipped with a 176 horsepower, as compared to 170 in the entry-level Subaru, it's the only engine the RAV4 has to offer. The Forester also has over 8-inches of ground clearance, making it the better performer in snow and off-roading.

For our drivers who want to take on the open road with an optional panoramic moonroof, the Subaru Forester comes equipped with a moonroof that's almost twice as big as the one in the Toyota RAV4.

The Subaru Forester 2.5i vs. A New Honda CR-V LX

  • Right out the gate the Subaru Forester charges, with a standard 2.5-liter flat-four SUBARU BOXER engine. Honda CR-V builds in its own 2.4-liter i-VTEC® inline-four. Higher Forester trims make available a workhorse 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine, shelling out 258 pound-feet of torque. Higher CR-V trim levels peak at only 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet.
  • Forester city and highway fuel economy remain fairly competitive with CR-V, about 22 mpg to 26 mpg and 28 mpg to 32 mpg respectively. It's owing in part to a standard manual transmission that keeps the ride sporty and hands-on - a quality which its Honda counterpart lacks, as it offers only a two-speed CVT. Ascend to a Lineartronic® six-speed CVT, available in the new Forester base, and Subaru and Honda nearly tie on efficiency.
  • The sizable 15.9-gallon fuel tank in Forester means fewer stop-offs to the pump in McKinney. Honda CR-V weighs in at 14.0 gallons.
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard throughout the lineup. That same turn and pull charge over rough terrain and through bad weather, Honda CR-V can't claim standard, as its Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System is only optional, from base LX to top Touring trim.
  • Our crossover SUV is even more accommodating space-wise, 108.3 cubic feet of room for passengers to only 105.9 for its Honda rival. That means gains in front head and leg room as well as rear head and shoulder room - spots that matter on the long haul.
  • Ditto for infotainment system choices to keep you in touch and entertained on the trip: choose throughout the line from a base STARLINK 6.2-inch Multimedia system, a STARLINK 7-inch Multimedia Plus variant with voice control and SiriusXM support, and a STARLINK 7-inch Multimedia Navigation system at the top tier, complete with multi-touch gesture control. Honda CR-V provides two options -- a 5-inch color LCD and the step up to a 7-inch Display Audio system.
