Subaru Forester vs Honda CR-V: Space & Technology

When it comes to ample space and the latest technology, you can't go wrong with either the Subaru Forester or the Honda CR-V. Both offer at least 38 inches of legroom in the second row, so even your tallest passengers will have enough room to stretch out.

And, if you're volunteering to be the carpool parent for soccer games this season, you can load up the gear in these rides. With at least 34.4 cubic feet of space behind the second row in both SUVs, throw in all the  bags and extra pairs of cleats your team will need.

When it comes to technology features, the Forester takes the lead. With a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen via the Subaru STARLINK™ infotainment system, you'll be connected on even your longest drives. The CR-V follows behind with a standard 5-inch display, slightly smaller than the Forester.

Performance in the 2019 Forester and CR-V

The Forester manages to stay ahead of the CR-V in this category with its off-roading capabilities-especially with the turbocharged engine option. It also comes standard with the Subaru Intelligent Drive and X-MODE® that ensure that you'll be just fine taking this on your next family camping trip. The 2019 Honda CR-V only offers the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™.
