Comparison Review

Convenience
The Subaru Forester requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda CR-V, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda CR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Forester. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Honda CR-V is much higher than that for the Subaru Forester.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda CR-V will do just as well as the Subaru Forester, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Forester.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester.

Warranty
The Honda CR-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Forester.
