2021 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Subaru Forester | Vallejo, CA

Shopping for a family hauler can be difficult, especially when there are so many options. Two crossover options to choose from are the Honda CR-V and 2021 Subaru Forester. When pitted head to head, it’s clear that the new Honda CR-V offers a few advantages families in Vallejo are sure to love.  

Power & Efficiency

Getting your family around Vallejo calls for a family-friendly ride that is both fun to drive and efficient. Both the 2021 CR-V and the 2021 Forester have a single gasoline-powered engine option. When you look at the numbers, though, the 2021 CR-V is more powerful and more efficient.
The 2021 Honda CR-V boasts a dynamic 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder puts out a fun 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. For the Forester, you get less power from its standard 2.5-liter Subaru Boxer four-cylinder with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque.
With its turbocharged powertrain, the CR-V still manages to get 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway when equipped with front-wheel drive.* The all-wheel-drive model gets 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.* The all-wheel-drive Forester gets less than both of the CR-V options with a fuel-efficiency rating of 26 mpg in the city.
Honda also pulls ahead because it has one powertrain option that the Forester doesn’t — a hybrid. The CR-V Hybrid gets up to 40 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, which is a solid fuel-efficiency rating that will help you reduce the costs of road trips across California and beyond.*

Interior Space

A family-friendly crossover should come with enough space for your family on the go. Both the CR-V and the Forester do just that, offering the versatility you need for your busy schedule. The CR-V, though, offers more cargo capacity than the Forester. It comes with 39.2 cubic feet behind the second-row seats, which is ample space for groceries, camping gear, and more. If you fold down the rear seats, the CR-V can fit up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo.
Behind the second-row seats of the Forester, you can only fit 31.1 cubic feet of cargo. The maximum cargo capacity is also smaller than the CR-V with 74.3 cubic feet. You will also have less rear legroom in the Subaru than you would in the Honda with the former offering only 39.4 inches and the latter offering an inch more with 40.4 inches.
