Thinking of buying a crossover? Perhaps you might want to put the 2019 Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester on your top choices. Both SUVs are good choices, although the newest Honda CR-V has a slight edge when it comes to safety features. Not only is its safety features list massive, it now uses a hot-stamp ultra-high-strength steel that makes its structure stronger–and more crash-resistant. Meanwhile, the Subaru Forester is great for short drivers or for anyone else who needs excellent visibility, since it offers slim pillars by today’s standards, wide windows, and minimal blind spots compared with most new, compact SUVs today.
Still, it’s not enough for us to give generalities when it comes to what makes them excellent, reliable crossover choices. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of their features so you can see for yourself.
