2019 Honda CR-V vs. 2019 Subaru Outback Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Subaru Outback. The Subaru Outback will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
With the Subaru Outback, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda CR-V, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Outback. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-V will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Subaru Outback.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Subaru Outback. The Honda CR-V is slightly shorter than the Subaru Outback, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Outback are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Outback, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Subaru Outback is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Outback.

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 Outback. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Honda CR-V as you will in the Subaru Outback.

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