Which is Better? The Subaru Outback or the Honda CRV?

The 2020 Subaru Outback, now available at Rafferty Subaru for test drives, has clear advantages over the Honda CRV if you are an adventure enthusiast. A redesigned premium interior and two engine options, one a performance-oriented, turbocharged 260 horsepower model with 277 lb-ft of torque, sweeten the deal of this already appealing model. The Subaru Outback, already well-known for being practical yet outdoor-friendly, just got even better.

What's the difference between a Subaru Outback and a Honda CRV?

Comparing the newly redesigned Subaru Outback to the Honda CRV is difficult, because both are exceptional vehicles. But they do have distinct differences. Appearance-wise, both models are pleasing, but the Subaru Outback looks the part of an adventure vehicle more than the Honda CRV, which has a conventional look, and the new premium interior of the 2020 Subaru Outback is sleek and stylish. The Subaru Outback comes with standard AWD and 8.7 inches of ground clearance, which gives it a step up over the Honda CRV as a performance outdoor vehicle. Both vehicles have driver assistance technology, but the mechanicals are what really sets the Subaru Outback apart. The turbocharged engine option available in the Subaru Outback outclasses the Honda CRV, which is built for everyday driving.

Why is Subaru Outback so Popular?

The following that the Subaru Outback has is no surprise to any outdoor enthusiast. The 2020 Subaru Outback is a rugged, built-for-adventure vehicle which combines all of the options needed to take your vehicle camping, off-roading, etc. with the elements of a practical and stylish day-to-day vehicle. The safety of the Subaru Outback, and other Subaru models, is well-known, time-tested, and best in class year after year. It's no wonder the Subaru Outback is so popular, because this sporty yet well-rounded model has everything you need whether you are going to the wilderness or to the grocery store.

EyeSight includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane centering and lane-keeping assist. The Honda CRV also comes standard with driver assistance technology, and the good news is that both the Honda CRV and the Subaru Outback have excellent safety ratings, both earning five stars overall from NHTSA. Another safety innovation available on the 2020 Subaru Outback is DriverFocus, which uses facial recognition to detect when a driver is distracted and alerts them of the danger.
