2018 Honda CR-V


2018 Subaru Forester

Is the 2018 Honda CR-V or the 2018 Subaru Forester the Better Crossover?

The 2018 Honda CR-V is a stronger choice than the 2018 Subaru Forester for Loveland and Ft. Collins drivers because it offers these advantages:

  • Cost-saving efficiency with a standard CVT
  • More base trim power and acceleration
  • Higher confidence-inspiring safety scores
  • Larger overall cargo area

The 2018 Honda CR-V Outpaces the 2018 Subaru Forester

It’s rare that a vehicle offers superior fuel economy and performance, but the CR-V has achieved that feat:

  • 2018 Honda CR-V LX
    • Engine: 2.4L 4-Cylinder
    • Horsepower: 184 hp
    • Torque: 180 lb-ft
    • Standard Transmission: Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (City): 26 mpg*
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (Highway): 32 mpg*
  • 2018 Subaru Forester
    • Engine: 2.5L 4-Cylinder
    • Horsepower: 170 hp
    • Torque: 174 lb-ft
    • Standard Transmission: Six-Speed Manual
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (City): 22 mpg
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (Highway): 28 mpg

Many systems contribute to the efficiency of the CR-V including the smooth shifting of the standard CVT. The Forester can be equipped with a more efficient transmission, but you’ll have to pay more.

Excellence Goes Beyond Performance

A crossover like the CR-V and the Forester is expected to carry large amounts of cargo. However, the interior of the CR-V is larger than the Forester:

  • 2018 Honda CR-V LX
    • Cargo Volume Behind Rear Seats: 39.2 cubic feet
    • Cargo Volume with Rear Seats Folded Down: 75.8 cubic feet
  • 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i
    • Cargo Volume Behind Rear Seats: 34.4 cubic feet
    • Cargo Volume with Rear Seats Folded Down: 74.7 cubic feet

On top of that, the CR-V has received stronger safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.*

The Verdict:

The Honda CR-V offers a stronger combination of safety, performance, efficiency, and cargo room for Longmont families than the Forester. Find yours in one of ten exterior colors at Honda of Greeley!
