It’s clear why so many drivers are comparing2021 Honda CR-V vs. 2021 Subaru Forester. The former is one of the most popular compact crossovers on the road, but the Forester has a reputation for stronger, more rugged performance. So, which one should you choose? With that question in mind, we’ve gone ahead and matched them up on:

  • Power and MPG
  • Space and Features
  • Safety Technology

CR-V vs. Forester: Power and MPG

The Subaru Forester’s reputation for engaging performance might lead you to assume that it commands more power than the Honda CR-V. Take a closer look at engine specs and you’ll see the opposite is true – in fact, the Honda CR-V manages to provide more power while delivering stronger maximum efficiency scores:

  • 2021 Honda CR-V: Makes up to 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque and up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway with the LX CVT
  • 2021 Subaru Forester: Makes up to 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque and up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway as standard.

CR-V vs. Forester: Space and Features

Up to 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row of the CR-V is more impressive than the Forester’s 37.6 cubic feet, and the Honda complements that practicality with a whole host of features that are unavailable with the Subaru at any price. Highlights include:

  • 12-Way Power Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar Support
  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
  • Wireless Phone Charger

CR-V vs. Forester: Safety Technology

The 2021 Subaru Forester and 2021 Honda CR-V both offer a strong range of safety features, but the CR-V still edges ahead as the only model of the two available with:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Provides a clearer view of the area behind your vehicle than the Subaru’s static rearview camera.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Provides corrective steering pressure if you’re ever detected crossing common edge-of-road markers.
