2019 Subaru Outback vs 2018 Honda CR-V Model Comparison Information in Redwood City, CA

If you're considering getting a small SUV, chances are you're looking for a few things: easy handling, enough space for the family, high seating, and maybe even the ability to explore a few places a regular car won't get you. What if we told you that the best small SUV for your needs might not be a small SUV at all? The 2019 Subaru Outback is an SUV-like AWD wagon that's become incredibly popular among SUV fans. When you compare it to something like the 2019 Honda CR-V, you'll see just how much more Subaru has to offer. Of course, there's nothing like experiencing one for yourself, so be sure to schedule a test drive.

Compare 2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V Performance Features

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Performance

Both of these vehicles have two engine options. The standard engine in the Subaru Outback generates 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, which is similar to that of the entry-level Honda CR-V engine. However, the Subaru Outback has a BOXER® engine that gives it amazing balance and a low center of gravity, especially when compared to the inline engine in the Honda CR-V.

Want even more power? While the available engine in the 2019 Honda CR-V gets 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque, the available 6-cylinder engine in the Subaru Outback generates a stunning 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet!

In addition, every 2019 Subaru Outback comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for off-road prowess, as well as standard features like X-MODE® (which adjusts the AWD system to provide better traction on low-friction surfaces) and Hill Descent Control. The 2019 Honda CR-V is not an AWD vehicle unless you want to pay more. It comes standard with front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is an expensive upgrade.

2019 Subaru Outback vs 2019 Honda CR-V: Safety

Both the 2019 Subaru Outback and the 2019 Honda CR-V are safe vehicles; however, Subaru has the edge. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes it easier to stay in control on slick roads. Of course, you don't have to take our word for it. The 2019 Honda CR-V turned in an impressive performance in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, earning their 2019 Top Safety Pick award.
