Forester vs. Toyota RAV4

2017 Subaru Forester vs. the 2016 Toyota RAV4--Forester Advantages

  • Let's start with an important difference, the cost. The 2017 Forester has a starting MSRP price of only $22,845, while the RAV4 has a starting MSRP price of $24,350.
  • Every Forester model comes equipped with standard Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive, while the RAV4 will have you paying extra if you want all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive provides drivers with superior handling, control, and traction in all driving conditions and terrains when compared to front-wheel drive vehicles like the standard RAV4.
  • If space is something you want when looking for a new crossover SUV, the Forester provides you with more of it. With more front and rear head and leg room, and 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to 101.9 cubic feet in the RAV4, the Forester allows you to fit your passengers more comfortably. And with a maximum cargo capacity of 74.7 compared to 73.4 in the RAV4, the Forester allows you to haul more as well.
  • The Forester has 8.4-inches of ground clearance, allowing you to easily navigate through all terrains, while the RAV4 only has 6.1-inches of ground clearance.

Forester vs. Honda CR-V

2017 Subaru Forester vs. the 2016 Honda CR-V--Forester Advantages

  • The Forester is less expensive than the CR-V. With a starting MSRP price of just $22,595 in the Forester, compared to $23,845 in the CR-V, there's no telling what you can do with the money you'll save.
  • Every Forester model is equipped with standard Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive, while the CR-V comes with standard front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available on the CR-V, but it will cost you extra.
  • The Forester has a smaller turning diameter than the CR-V, allowing you to maneuver more easily through tight spaces like parking lots.
  • The Forester has more all-around space than the CR-V does. With 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Forester and 104.1 cubic feet of passenger volume in the CR-V, as well as 74.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space compared to 70.9 cubic feet in the CR-V, the Forester provides you with more space for everyone, and everything.
