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.
  • Both the 2022 Subaru Outback and 2021 Honda CR-V come standard with advanced driver-assist technologies, but the Outback's package provides a bit more help. For example, its Adaptive Cruise Control system has lane-centering technology, which the Honda CR-V does not.
  • The Subaru Outback is roomier with 109 cubic feet of passenger space to the Honda's 105.9 cubic feet, and this shows in areas like first-row legroom and the width of the rear row of seats.
  • 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, which is the priciest option.
  • Every 2022 Subaru Outback for sale near Belleville, IL comes with the STARLINK® Multimedia infotainment system, dual 7.0-inch touchscreens, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. The Honda CR-V is standard with a five-inch color screen that is not a touchscreen, and it doesn't have Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ standard.
