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. 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.


Cutting a sleek new exterior design, the flashy 2020 Honda CR-V is equally ready for the city streets and the trails. The CR-V comes with an exciting 2020 look that includes a sculpted, chiseled, and carefully crafted outer shell. A variety of attractive paint colors give you the option for any look, be it bold, sexy, aggressive, or weekend chill. This year's CR-V carries multiple amenity options, such as striking 19-inch alloy wheels. The 2020 Subaru Forester, in contrast, lacks the exciting and dimensional appearance of the CR-V. While its rugged appearance consistently advertises the Subaru name, its outer shell falls short of the versatile, youthful modernity that sets the CR-V apart from the pack.


Where performance is concerned, the CR-V excels yet again. 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 4-cylinder 1.5L turbocharged engine boasting 190 horsepower, paired with Honda's innovative continuously variable transmission. This is all available in a front- or all-wheel drive system. The opposing Subaru Forester gets one engine across the board, a 4-cylinder 2.5L. However, this engine offers less power than the CR-V's with a maximum power output of 182 horsepower.


Peeking inside, the 2020 Honda CR-V has no choice but to strike with an exciting interior worthy of its dazzling exterior appearance. The CR-V cabin includes two spacious, elegant, and comfortable rows of seats with a versatile split-folding design. The CR-V upgraded its standard safety technology this year, making it a smart choice for anyone valuing the latest in advanced driver safety tools. The Honda Sensing® package offers lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and more. A sunroof, navigation, leather seats, and a heated steering wheel are included at the top trim level. Comparatively, the 2020 Subaru Forester offers less standard safety technology, subpar comfort in seating, and a relatively dull interior atmosphere. Also, the 2020 Honda CR-V boasts significantly more cargo space than the Forester.
