Looking for an SUV that can tow your trailer, roam off-road, and keep you and your family safe in Bismarck traffic? Both the 2020 Honda CR-V and the Subaru Outback tick all the boxes and then some. Both of these crossovers score high ratings for safety and reliability, and offer plenty of space for passengers and cargo. But does the Outback or CR-V offer a better value for the features you desire most? Join Ryan Honda of Minot as we compare the Honda CR-V vs. Subaru Outback head-to-head on pricing, performance, and more.
Smart car-buyers compare pricing across a model’s entire trim lineup, rather than just the starting MSRP. That’s because even though a low starting MSRP may look like a great deal, adding the features you really want requires stepping up several trim levels — a move that will seriously ratchet up the final price.
So is the Outback or CR-V a better value for Devils Lake buyers? The Honda CR-V LX 2WD base trim starts at $25,150, about $1,000 less than the Outback. The price gap only grows as you move up the lineups — and a fully-loaded CR-V will cost you almost $5,000 less than the Outback equivalent.
Is the Outback or CR-V the better choice to tow your boat or trailer? Like all Subaru models, the Outback’s standard AWD is a nice perk. However, choosing the CR-V means you’ll pay less — and benefit from a higher-powered engine to boot.
Whether you’re kayaking or rock-climbing around Dickinson, you need an SUV with ample and flexible cargo space for your gear. Features like 60-40 split-back rear seats provide versatile storage solutions in either the Outback or CR-V cabin. While the two models open up the same amount of cargo space with the second row folded down, the CR-V provides about 8 extra cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Compare cabin dimensions below:
