Explore How the Well-Rounded & All-New 2019 Subaru Forester SUV Compares with its Rivals Over At Honda & Toyota

Within the competitive and crowded compact-SUV-class of the modern-day marketplace, the Subaru Forester model has truly come into its own and proven itself as a true standout over the years. Even when you take a close look at well-established, mainstream brands such as Honda and Toyota, the SUV models that they offer simply fail to maintain pace with the widespread appeal of the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester!

So before you simply turn to the new Honda CR-V or the Toyota Highlander without doing much research, only because you can spot this familiar nameplate all over the greater Boston area and beyond, you really need to discover how the 2019 Subaru Forester model continues to hold an edge on these competing SUVs. As this segment of the industry continues to rise in popularity year after year, we aren't surprised at all that so many of our cherished customers in Natick, Boston, Norwood, Belmont and beyond are intrigued by the latest Subaru Forester model.

Subaru Forester vs. Toyota Highlander

  • Looking at pricing, the new Toyota Highlander SUV is dramatically more expensive to buy than the latest Subaru Forester. MSRP for the 2019 Highlander model starts at $31,330 at the base trim level, while MSRP for the competing 2019 Forester SUV model begins much more affordably at only $24,295. Imagine what you can do with those big savings!
  • Once again, the Subaru Forester offers more features for less money. In genuine Subaru fashion, the new Forester comes equipped with their legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System even at the base trim level for no extra cost. Even with that expensive price tag, the new Highlander SUV model doesn't come with AWD standard, so you'll have to spend even more of your hard-earned savings.
  • If you value and prioritize fuel economy, then the choice becomes even clearer for you. The all-new 2019 Subaru Forester SUV boasts an exceptional EPA-estimated rating of 26/33 city/highway mpg! Way on the other end of the spectrum, the EPA estimated that the Toyota Highlander gets a less attractive rating of 21/27 city/highway mpg when equipped with the V6 engine equipped.
  • The Forester also comes equipped with both the highly-praised Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto systems as standard equipment, so you can always enjoy an effortless connection with your smartphone. These two are not available at all for the Highlander model, and Toyota's available Entune™ system is considered far less user-friendly by many critics, and this costs extra as well.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • Price tags are a suitable place to start when comparing two SUV models side-by-side. Well, MSRP begins at a very affordable point for the 2019 Forester, starting at only $24,295. In contrast, starting MSRP for the new 2019 Honda CR-V model is $24,350. This seems to be splitting hairs, so let's dive into the varying features included for these prices.
  • Standard equipment for the new Subaru Forester includes the brand's praised and proven Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) System, for no additional cost to buyers whatsoever, in stark contrast to the new CR-V model where you have to pay much more for AWD. When those harsh winters hit here in greater Boston, you'll be pleased you have a surefooted Subaru to call your own.
  • If you choose the Subaru Forester instead of the new Honda CR-V model, you'll enjoy more headroom, more legroom, and more overall passenger volume. Sit back, relax, and get comfortable inside the all-new new Forester SUV. Surely you and your loved ones onboard will appreciate more interior roominess when you drive around Boston, Natick, Norwood and Belmont, MA.
  • And for your peace-of-mind behind the wheel, Subaru's award-winning EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is also included for no extra charge when buying the 2019 Forester, unlike the Honda Sensing® package for the CR-V where you will be forced to spend more and climb up trim levels.
