Compare the New 2019 Subaru Forester to the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape

So you want to own a new 2019 Subaru Forester, but you want to learn more about what the differences are between the new 2019 Forester and competitors like the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape. At Gerald Jones Subaru, we believe that the key to finding the right vehicle is to gain some perspective surrounding how it compares to other vehicles. That's why we're going to highlight some of the many benefits that the Forester provides you with that the new 2019 Honda CR-V and 2019 Ford Escape don't.

What's the Differences Between the 2019 Subaru Forester and the 2019 Honda CR-V?

  • Every 2019 Subaru Forester model comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to provide you with the traction and control that you need to take on all weather conditions and terrains with ease. The CR-V, however, comes equipped with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models will cost you extra. And with an already higher starting price than the Forester, the CR-V can't compare in value.
  • All 2019 Forester models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility on the standard Starlink multimedia system. The CR-V doesn't offer Android Auto or Apple CarPlay as standard features.
  • For peace of mind behind the wheel, every Forester model comes with an Eyesight Driver Assist Technology system, featuring adaptive cruise control and pre-collision braking. The CR-V offers similar safety features but not as standard features.

What's the Difference Between the 2019 Subaru Forester and the 2019 Ford Escape?

  • Again, the 2019 Forester comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, while the Escape comes with standard front-wheel drive.
  • The Forester offers more standard horsepower than the Escape does, offering 182-horsepower compared to 168-horsepower from the base Escape.
  • The Forester offers 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume while the Escape falls short with only 98.7 cubic feet of passenger volume.
  • The Forester offers standard features that you won't find standard on the Escape, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and Eyesight Driver Assist Technology. All comparable features either aren't offered or are only available on higher trim levels.
