See How the Subaru Forester is the Smart Choice Over the Honda CR-V in Bellevue

When you're looking for your next compact SUV it can be hard to know what is the right value and option for your lifestyle and budget needs. From the numerous standard features, to the all-weather capability of symmetrical all-wheel drive. Don't just take our word for it, check out a few of the popular reasons why people love their Subaru Forester, below!


Unmatched Capability

Both the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester offer two engine options to choose from, but for the most power-packed of the bunch, opt for the 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder BOXER engine on the Forester. The most powerful of the Honda engines only caps out at 190 horsepower, a far cry from the pickup and go of the Forester's turbocharged engine. Both feature a continuously variable transmission (CVT) but the Forester is available as a manual transmission as well. The Subaru Forester doesn't feel like you're driving an SUV with a tall driving position with great visibility, you'll easily be able to navigate your Forester through winding city streets and even winding back-roads.

The most popular reason why so many drivers in Issaquah choose the Subaru Forester over any other compact SUV is the inclusion of symmetrical all-wheel drive standard. This system continuously monitors wheel grip and traction to detect wheel slip in less than one rotation of a wheel, so it can deliver power to the wheels with traction faster. You'll also love that even with symmetrical all-wheel drive, your Subaru Forester gets comparable EPA estimated fuel efficiency to its front-wheel drive competitors like the Honda CR-V.

High-Tech and Comfortable

The Subaru Forester comes loaded with standard features, like a 6.2-inch STARLINK™ touchscreen infotainment system, you have to pay extra with the Honda CR-V to get a touchscreen display. Even if you upgrade the CR-V's infotainment system, you'll still have to deal with the clunky menus and slow input responses. Both the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester offer comfortable seats, with spacious seating for up to five, but when you consider the ample cargo space and lower price tag of the Subaru Forester, it makes sense for you to choose the Subaru Forester for your value-packed SUV option in Sammamish.

Advanced Safety

Your family and loved ones deserve to have the technology you want to keep them safer on the roads of Mercer Island WA. It's easy to get the features you want with a new Subaru Forester, thanks to the advanced EyeSight® Safety Suite from Subaru. Both vehicles offer a rearview backup camera included standard, as well as numerous active driver assistance features. But, when you opt for the Honda CR-V, even on the highest trim level, you have to pay extra to get a simple feature like rear parking sensors. The Subaru EyeSight® System offers comprehensive features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, and much more to keep you safer.
