Subaru Forester vs. Toyota RAV4
- Typically, the most immediate difference drivers see between these two crossovers is in their price: the Subaru Forester stands out as being the less expensive choice when up against a comparably equipped RAV4
- The Forester provides its drivers and their passengers with greater front- and rear head room, rear hip room, front- and rear legroom, as well as rear shoulder room. The interior dimensions in the Toyota RAV4 are cramped in comparison
- The overall interior volume of the Forester is more spacious than that of the RAV4
- As per all Subaru models, the Forester comes equipped with symmetrical all-wheel-drive, no matter the trim. If you're looking for all-wheel-drive on the RAV4, you'll have to narrow your search to the more expensive trim offerings
- With Subaru, safety is always a priority; that's why we aren't surprised to see that the Forester earned a top five-star rating in the NHTSA Front Crash Test- Driver. The RAV4 earned only four-stars in the same evaluation
Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V
- Again, the Subaru proves to be the more financially savvy auto investment, with a lower MSRP than a comparably equipped Honda CR-V
- With its tighter curb-to-curb turning circle, the Forester offers improved maneuverability over the Honda CR-V
- Expect to find greater front and rear headroom when you sit in the Forester than in the more angular CR-V
- With its greater fuel capacity, Forester drivers in Old Bridge won't have to stop as frequently for fuel fill-ups as they would in the CR-V
- If you're looking for all-wheel-drive on the CR-V you won't find it standard on the base trim levels; the Subaru Forester, on the other hand, provides standard all-wheel-drive across the board, at no additional cost to you!
