Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • The Subaru Forester comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Honda CR-V offers available all-wheel drive, but you'll have to pay more to get it.
  • The Subaru Forester is much more affordable than the Honda CR-V, coming in at just $22,595 MSRP versus the CR-V's $24,045 MSRP.
  • The Honda CR-V may boast more horsepower, but with its sluggish CVT transmission, it takes a lengthy 7.6 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill. By comparison, the Subaru Forester manages that same sprint in just 6.3 seconds.

Subaru Forester vs. Hyundai Tucson

  • At base, the Subaru Forester boasts more horsepower and torque than the Hyundai Tucson.
  • Taller drivers will love the Subaru Forester, as it offers more front head and leg room than the competitor Hyundai Tucson
  • Hate the feeling of bottoming out on uneven surfaces? With 8.7-inches of ground clearance, you'll almost never experience it in the Subaru Forester. On the other hand, the Hyundai Tucson rides much closer to the ground with just 6.4-inches of ground clearance, meaning you'll have to drive more carefully.

Subaru Forester vs. Ford Escape

  • Recently, the 2017 Subaru Forester earned an Top Safety Pick+ Award. The 2017 Ford Escape…didn't.
  • Got lots of gear to tote around? With up to 74.7 cubic-feet of cargo space, the Subaru Forester can easily haul nearly anything you might want. Unfortunately for the Ford Escape, you'll find much more conservative cargo area, with just 68 cubic-feet available with the rear seats folded down.
  • If you want a little extra peace of mind one the road, the Subaru Forester offers a SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security system  with automatic collision notification, enhanced roadside assistance, and even vehicle security alarm notifications. No comparable system exists for the Ford Escape.
