How Does the 2020 Subaru Outback Compare to the Honda CR-V

The Subaru Outback has long had a history of being versatile and off-road-ready while offering drivers dependable value and capability throughout its crossover SUV design. Alongside a stellar performance package, you'll find a standard suite of technology and safety features perfect for everyday driving that most other SUV models can't compete with. When you need a vehicle that's well-suited for every situation, the 2020 Subaru Outback is just the way to do it.

When you want to choose the right option for your lifestyle, it can be tough to make the right decision. Here at our dealership, we think it's important to provide perspective around the buying experience. We've compared it to the 2019 Honda CR-V so you can see a side-by-side comparison of the two, and why the Subaru Outback is good for you!

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V

  • Every new Outback comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive which helps provide improved traction when the system senses a wheel slipping. The Honda CR-V offers all-wheel drive, but it's not standard for the lineup and will cost you extra.
  • The 2020 Subaru Outback comes standard with the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology including features like adaptive cruise control, lane departure and sway warning, and lane-keep assist. The Honda offers a similar package, but it's not standard for the lineup.
  • The Outback offers a fuel economy of 26/33 mpg city/highway while the CR-V falls slightly behind with 26/32 mpg city/highway. Equipping the Honda SUV with all-wheel drive lowers these numbers further.
  • The Subaru Outback is roomier with 109 cubic feet of passenger space to the Honda's 105.9 cubic feet.
  • For outdoor enthusiasts, the Subaru Outback is equipped with standard roof rails suitable for kayaks and bike racks. The Honda CR-V only offers this on its Touring trim.
  • The Outback lineup comes with the STARLINK® Multimedia infotainment system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. The Honda CR-V is standard with a five-inch color screen, and it does not include smartphone integration on all trim levels.
