Test Drive a Subaru Forester


Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • Forester's carefully designed styling leaves Honda's blocky CR-V off the runway. Thanks to its tapered rear glass and sloping aerodynamic look, you'll have no trouble distinguishing it from a mini-van in local parking lots.
  • When it comes to performance, critics have found the Forester is responsive and aggressive thanks to  throttle mapping and a weight advantage over other compact SUV's like Honda CR-V.
  • Since we know safety is an important feature for all our clients, it's also worth mentioning that Forester comes standard with a higher-rated safety package at a lower MSRP than Honda CR-V.

Subaru Forester vs. Toyota RAV4

  • With over two more inches of ground clearance over RAV4, Forester is the clear choice for those who take their vehicles off the beaten path. But it won't just handle better when you're there: Forester also boasts more passenger room and better combined fuel economy ratings.
  • Looking to take in those starry country nights during the summertime? You'd be better off doing so with Forester, which boasts a panoramic moon roof almost twice as big as RAV4.
  • But it's not just the view from the insight and out that make Forester a better choice. Forester is less expensive than RAV4 and also offers an optional All Weather Package with heated seats, mirrors, and wipers.
