CR-V vs. Forester: Which is the Better Buy for Edmond Drivers?

When it comes to a CR-V vs. Forester head-to-head, we think there are a few key points that give the Subaru Forester an edge. A look at the specs shows that the Subaru Forester has more passenger volume and standard features like AWD and panoramic moonroof that the Honda CR-V can’t match. If you want AWD or a moonroof on the CR-V, you’ll have to buy them as upgrades. To top it off, the Forester starts at a lower price than the CR-V.
