2019 Honda CR-V vs Subaru Forester
If you live around Tustin, Santa Ana, or Rancho Santa Margarita and you’re trying to decide between the new Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester, then you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine 2019 Honda CR-V vs. 2019 Subaru Forester SUV comparison.
Plenty of Room for Heads, Feet, Shoulders, and Hips
Despite its status as a compact SUV, the 2019 Honda CR-V feels anything but compact when you step inside. For example, even the base model gives the front passengers 40.1 inches of headroom, 41.3 inches of legroom, 57.9 inches of shoulder room, and 55.1 inches of hip room; and it gives rear passengers 39.2 inches of headroom, 40.4 inches of legroom, 55.6 inches of shoulder room, and 49.5 inches of hip room.
But that’s not all! Depending on how you arrange the seats, you’ll have 39.2 cu. ft. or 75.8 cu. ft. for cargo.
The 2019 Subaru Forester doesn’t offer as much cargo room—35.4 cubic feet with its rear seats in place.
Intelligent Suites of Safety and Driver-Assistive Technologies
Honda puts a lot of attention on safety with their Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive tech:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
Subaru is equally concerned about your safety, as their EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is comparable.
2019 CR-V vs 2019 Forester: Stay Connected While You Drive
However, in this day and age, technology is capable of a lot more than just helping to keep you safe. The 2019 Honda CR-V takes full advantage of the powers of technology in its remarkably high-tech, connected cabin.
Apple CarPlay™ Integration. This allows you to harness many of your compatible iPhone’s superpowers as you drive—but in a way that’s as safe as possible and doesn’t take your attention off the road.
Driver Information Interface. Not only does this interface give you all the key driving information that you’ve come to rely on, but it can issue an audible and visual alert if it detects drowsy driving behaviors.
7-Inch Display Audio Touchscreen. Music? Check. Podcasts? Check. Navigation? Check. Amazing? Check.
The SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia system fulfills many of the same functions as the 2019 Honda CR-V model’s 7-Inch Display Audio Touchscreen, which is great if you’re interested in the 2019 Subaru Forester. But we prefer to keep our attention on the CR-V, as we feel that it has the upper hand in this battle of the SUVs.
