2020 Honda CR-V vs 2020 Subaru Forester

Serving Charlottesville, VA

The 2020 Honda CR-V has made some notable changes for the latest model year that give it more power, style, and safety than before. Now, a turbocharged engine is standard for all trim levels, offering more power and acceleration even at the base level. In 2020, the CR-V's exterior has been revised to adopt a sportier and more streamlined appearance. Inside, the spacious interior features two rows of comfortable seats and several now-standard advanced safety aids. The 2020 Subaru Forester, in contrast, gets far fewer standard safety aids as the CR-V. It also lacks the same engine power and performance credentials. From the outside, the Subaru Forester looks the same as it did in 2019.


With a stylish new exterior design, the 2020 Honda CR-V is equally ready for the city streets and the trails. The CR-V gets a modernized look that includes a sculpted, chiseled, and carefully-crafted outer shell. A suite of attractive paint colors gives the CR-V the precise appearance that you're after. This year's CR-V can also be outfitted with many savvy amenities such as bold 19-inch alloy wheels. The 2020 Subaru Forester, in contrast, lacks the exciting and dimensional appearance of the CR-V. The Subaru Forester has a rugged appearance, but its outer shell requires the versatile style that sets the CR-V apart from the pack.


Performance is another area where the CR-V excels. This year, the CR-V is built to impress with a turbocharged engine standard across the board. Now, all trims of the CR-V are equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine that has four cylinders. This engine generates slightly less than 190 horsepower. It is paired with an automatic transmission. Whereas the CR-V provides the option of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the Subaru Forester only comes standard with all-wheel drive. The Subaru Forester gets one engine across the board, which is a 2.5L with four cylinders. The Subaru's engine, however, offers less power than the CR-V's with a maximum power output of 182 horsepower.


Inside, the 2020 Honda CR-V has a high-end interior that matches its dazzling new exterior. The cabin of the CR-V includes two spacious and comfortable rows of seats with a versatile split-folding design. All trims of the CR-V get more standard safety technology this year, making the CR-V a smart choice if you're looking for the latest in advanced driver safety tools. All trims get the Honda Sensing package of driver-assist suites with lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and more. The CR-V also adds a sunroof, navigation, leather seats, and a heated steering wheel at the top trim level. The 2020 Subaru Forester offers less standard safety technology and has less comfortable seats than the CR-V.
