Comparing the
2020 Subaru Forester
to Popular Competition

Our team at Delaney Subaru wants to make sure that you are getting into the vehicle that can meet all of the needs of your life. When you are looking for an SUV, you might be wondering what makes them all different from each other. While they all advertise roughly the same things, when you look at them in a head-to-head scenario, it becomes clear which are better for your life. The 2020 Subaru Forester offers a lot that the competition doesn't; even top competitors like the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V fall short in many areas.

The 2020 Subaru Forester Versus the 2020 Toyota RAV4

As two prominent vehicles in their class, you might think that they have a lot in common, but the differences are more evident once you pit them against each other.

Price: When it comes to securing value through superior feature layouts and a lower starting price, we recommend the 2020 Subaru Forester out of these competitive choices. This new Subaru model begins with a base MSRP of $24,295 to the more expensive starting $25,500 listing for the 2020 Toyota RAV4.

Performance: The 2020 Subaru Forester is an SUV you will feel comfortable behind the wheel in from one season to the next. Featuring standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive just available for the RAV4, you won't have any problem maintaining traction over icy roads and snow-covered surfaces.

Interior Design: With 111.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume, the 2020 Subaru Forester feels less cramped and more accommodating than the 98.9 cubic feet featured inside the 2020 Toyota RAV4. This advantage equates to greater head, leg and shoulder room in both rows.

But the edge in cabin experience doesn't end there, with this new Subaru model featuring available leather-trimmed upholstery, power-adjustable passenger seats and mirrors with memory functions. You won't discover these features when perusing the 2020 Toyota RAV4 lineup.

Technology: With SUBARU STARLINK infotainment, the new Subaru Forester proves plenty engaging. Features such as standard HD radio and satellite radio, not available for the competing Toyota SUV, provide additional digital outlets to pass the time by on longer trips.

Efficiency: While the measurements are close, the Forester gets slightly better fuel efficiency, allowing you to go further without needing to fill up.

The 2020 Subaru Forester Versus the 2020 Honda CR-V

After seeing how the Forester beat the RAV4 in many categories, you might be curious about another one of the most popular vehicles like the Honda CR-V, but the Forester continues to offer more.

Price: Every dollar counts, especially when considering differences in features and the SUV you end up preferring. The 2020 Subaru Forester comes in at $24,295 for a starting price, with the 2020 Honda CR-V positioned just above that at $24,350. Accounting for the standard symmetrical all-wheel drive advantage and other highlights, you will immediately spot where the value lies.

Active Safety: BWith Subaru EyeSight technology, the 2020 Subaru Forester can read and react to developments on local roadways intuitively and instantaneously.

Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, not available in the 2020 Honda CR-V driver-assistance package, help you prevent accidental veering and a potential collision with the vehicle passing you.

Efficiency: The 2020 Subaru Forester - despite its standard symmetrical all-wheel drive configuration that is just available for the 2020 Honda CR-V competition - features a highway fuel efficiency edge of 33 miles per gallon to 32 miles per gallon. From commutes to and from work to off-road exploration and travel through several types of weather, this new Subaru model thrives.

Technology: Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a base satellite radio and HD radio are just a few of the features you won't find inside the starting 2020 Honda CR-V. Available digital systems that may interest you - also not available for the Honda SUV - include a premium sound system and Wi-Fi hotspot.

Interior Design: The 2020 Subaru Forester features a plethora of convenience amenities and cabin appliances that differentiate your travel experience from that of the 2020 Honda CR-V. These feature and specification distinctions are as follows:

  • 111.9 cubic feet passenger volume vs. 105.9 cubic feet
  • Available power lumbar seat support vs. not available
  • Available panoramic moonroof vs. not available
  • Available heated rear seats vs. not available
