2017 Subaru Outback VS 2017 Honda CR-V: Design

Compare the design of the 2017 Subaru Outback and the 2017 Honda CR-V, and you'll find that the Subaru makes better use of its dimensions. As crossovers or small SUV models go, the new Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V are both good looking vehicles, but there are some important distinctions to note beyond just the looks. The new Subaru Outback boasts a higher ground clearance for when things get rough. Step inside, and you'll appreciate substantially more passenger space. While the redesigned Honda is a good example of why the brand enjoys its reputation, the Subaru Outback is clearly designed to give you more for your money.

2017 Subaru Outback VS 2017 Honda CR-V: Performance

When it comes to performance, standard symmetrical all-wheel drive, a horizontally opposed BOXER engine, and more give the Subaru Outback an edge over the Honda CR-V. While it may appear that these two SUV models come with similar power and fuel economy, the Subaru Outback is providing power to every wheel for superior traction on every surface. Honda's version of all-wheel drive has proven to be less effective than Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive. Beyond traction and stability, the shorter turning circle of the Subaru Outback allows it to be more maneuverable in parking lots and other tight spaces than the Honda CR-V.

2017 Subaru Outback VS 2017 Honda CR-V: Safety

While both the 2017 Subaru Outback and 2017 Honda CR-V are modern crossovers that share some of the latest safety features, you'll find that the new Outback offers some key advantages. Active front seat head restraints are just the beginning of Subaru features you won't find in the new Honda CR-V. Both vehicles are available with driver assistance technology, but only the Subaru Outback offers the additional safety that comes with features like automatic reverse braking. What's more, the available Subaru STARLINK Safety and Security telematics, that provide services like immediate collision response via satellite connection, does not require your cell phone to be in range to get a signal out. The new Honda telematics technology still requires your cell phone to be on and have a good signal to work.
