Performance: 2018 Subaru Forester VS 2018 Honda CR-V

The base models of these two crossovers both have basic 4-cylinder engines which provide adequate power and maximum fuel efficiency. On the 2018 Honda CR-V, you can upgrade to a turbocharged 1.5L V4 for 190 horsepower - or step up to the 2018 Subaru Forester 2.0XT for a 2.0L turbocharged BOXER® flat-four. That engine achieves 250 horsepower. Its horizontal BOXER® design provides a low center of gravity which, along with available Active Torque Vectoring and X-MODE®, gives you an incredibly stable ride and effective handling, even off-road. The Forester 2.0XT can also get paddle shifters for direct control of the efficient Lineartronic® CVT transmission. And since each and every 2018 Subaru Forester enjoys 8.7" of ground clearance, you can get places in a Forester the 2018 Honda CR-V could never hope to reach.
