Compare the 2021 Subaru Forester to the Competition at Milford Subaru

When it comes to outdoor adventure, nothing quite compares with the Subaru lineup of sedan, hatchback, and SUV vehicles. Chief among them is the versatile 2021 Subaru Forester, a compact crossover SUV that takes to the back roads with the intent to conquer and control rough roads and terrain. Suited to any other lifestyle, the Subaru Forester offers excellent fuel economy, plenty of cargo and passenger space, a plethora of standard technology, and the legendary standard all-wheel drive. There are many other options around Milford, NH, including the 2021 Honda CR-V, but only the Subaru Forester checks off all the boxes. See how they match up down below!


Saving money on your new vehicle purchase can be a driving factor when shopping for an SUV. With the 2021 Subaru Forester, you can expect value from the get-go, as it starts at a very affordable $24,795. The 2021 Honda CR-V is a bit more expensive, costing you $575 more than the base Forester. Not only is the Forester going to keep more money in your pocket, but it also offers far more standard features than its CR-V competitor. The Subaru SUV comes standard with all-wheel drive, touchscreen infotainment with smartphone integration, and offers passenger and cargo volume. You won't have the same amount of space in the Honda, and you will need to pay more to unlock similar features.

All-Wheel Drive 

 New England winters can be harsh and unforgiving, and if you don't prepare for the worst it can throw at you, you might find yourself slipping off the road and looking for a tow. Thankfully, the 2021 Subaru Forester helps you drive with a bit more confidence, thanks to its standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. The Honda SUV offers an all-wheel drive system, but you will need to shell out an extra $1,500 to have it equipped.

Interior Space

Climbing inside the 2021 Subaru Forester will confirm that the Subaru SUV holds an edge over the interior of the 2021 CR-V.  You will enjoy room for you, your passengers, and your cargo, more than what the Honda SUV can offer. The Subaru Forester is standard with 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Honda CR-V only offers 105.9 cubic feet. The Forester provides 41.2 inches of front headroom and 43.3 inches of front legroom, while the Honda will limit you to 40.1 inches and 41.3 inches, respectively. The Forester also lets you bring a bit more along for the ride, with 76.1 cubic feet of storage space while the back seats are folded down compared to the CR-V's 75.8 cubic feet.


From the exterior to the interior, the Subaru Forester boasts more standard equipment and technology than the Honda CR-V can offer with its base model. The Forester offers optional roof rails for more storage, starting with the base trim, a feature that the Honda CR-V doesn't offer outside of its most expensive trim level. Inside, the 2021 Subaru Forester comes equipped with a 6.5-inch Subaru STARLINK® touchscreen and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Honda offers similar features, but you need to pay more to unlock these features on its EX trim.
