Design and Cargo Space

  • The Subaru Outback is an SUV that you can use in many different ways, and that's a key part of why so many drivers in the area trust it. The exterior design of the Subaru Outback has more ground clearance to help with rough terrain as well as standard roof rails for easier transport of large items.
  • Passenger comfort is key in any SUV, and the Subaru Outback offers Athens drivers more passenger volume than the Honda CR-V, which shows in areas such as front-row legroom and the width of both rows of seats.
  • If you're going adventuring or just often deal with poor weather throughout your days, the water-repellent seats available in the Subaru Outback are sure to help keep your car clean. The Honda CR-V only offers cloth or leather seat materials.

Engines and Power

  • The Subaru Outback has options when it comes to engines, and that will help car shoppers find the right fit. The Subaru Outback engines top out at 260 horsepower and 3,500 pounds of towing, which beats the max 190 horsepower and 1,500-pound max towing capacity of the Honda CR-V.
  • One big benefit of buying a new Subaru SUV near Troy is that they all come standard with all-wheel drive, which means paying less for a feature that will make tough driving conditions a breeze to handle. The Honda CR-V does not have standard all-wheel drive.

  • Safety is one of the first areas that many car shoppers look, especially when comparing SUVs. Well, both the Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V are safe SUVs, although the Subaru Outback has some safety measures, like whiplash-reducing seats and steering responsive headlights, that do not make their way into the Honda CR-V.
  • If you're a driver that enjoys the help of driver-assist technologies, the Subaru Outback comes with many systems, such as a driver distraction mitigation system and reverse automatic braking, not available in the new Honda SUV.


  • Coming back to passenger comfort, the Subaru Outback is ready for any season thanks to heated seats available in both rows and ventilated seats to keep you cool. The Honda CR-V only offers heated seats for passengers up front.
