Take a Step on the Safe Side

On those long drives home chasing the sun into the horizon, safety is of utmost importance. Luckily, the innovative safety features of the 2021 Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V prioritize your life.

Both SUVs offer lane departure alert systems, with the 2021 Subaru Forester's EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology reducing rear-end collisions with injuries by up to 85 percent. This standard feature optimizes your security and watches your back so you can arrive at your weekend Bed & Breakfast vacation with peace of mind.

Likewise, the Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V ensure that you reach your destination under an intelligent and attentive eye. If you have a new driver in your family, rest assured that both these vehicles have adequate safety features, such as:

  • Blind-Spot Detection
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Rear-Vision Camera

For all those teen drivers learning to parallel park, the Subaru Forester offers its Reverse Automatic Braking system, which utilizes automatic braking when a nearby object is detected behind you. Unfortunately, the Honda CR-V lacks a similar feature.

An All-Terrain Performance: Subaru Forester vs Honda CR-V

Whether you're hitting up your local deli on your lunch break or traversing the hilly roads to your next hiking destination, nothing matters more than the quality of the drive. Although both the 2021 Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V offer impressive All-Wheel Drive technologies, the Subaru Forester provides additional dynamic driving assistance aids:

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: A system designed to continually keep the power routed to all four wheels through rain, snow, or rough terrain.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control: Automatically senses steering and braking inputs to keep the vehicle on its intended path.
  • X-MODE®: A system that helps maximize traction in slippery conditions.

Besides driving features, the Subaru Forester is designed with 8.7 inches of ground clearance while the Honda CR-V has 8.2 inches. So, if you spend time on roads that are more gravel than pavement, the 2021 Subaru Forester can take you to any destination within reach.

Room for Adventure

When you're looking out at the open road, opportunity is at your fingertips. Opportunity is synonymous with freedom; this is exactly what both SUVs have in store for you.

While the Subaru Forester and the Honda CR-V have similar cargo space, the Subaru Forester has 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume while the Honda CR-V has 105.9 cubic feet. Carpooling the kids to their soccer game might be more cramped in the Honda CR-V.

From family trips to the park with bikes in tow to moving your new college-bound student and all their belongings into their dorm, the Subaru Forester ensures ample room for whoever and whatever you bring along to chase the stars.
