The 2019 Subaru Outback and the 2019 Honda CR-V are both attractive compact SUVs for a wide range of Phoenix drivers. But when you compare the two side by side, you’ll find that the Outback can’t match the performance and cargo space provided by the CR-V. The Outback is also more expensive than the CR-V. Check out this Honda CR-V vs. Subaru Outback comparison from Right Honda to find out which of these popular compact crossover SUVs you should be driving home.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V: MSRP

The 2019 Honda CR-V comes with a starting MSRP of $24,350,* while the 2019 Subaru Outback has a starting MSRP of $26,345. That $2,000 difference can be a real game-changer for many Glendale-area drivers.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V: MPG & Performance

Comparing the engine specs and fuel economy ratings of the Subaru Outback and the Honda CR-V shows that the Honda SUV offers more powerful and efficient performance:

  • Engine: The Honda CR-V is powered by a 184-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, and the Subaru Outback gets a 175-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder.
  • Transmission & Drivetrain: A Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is standard on both the CR-V and Outback. All-wheel drive is standard for the Outback and is an available optional for the CR-V.
  • MPG Ratings: Fuel economy ratings are similar, but the CR-V gets one mile per gallon more in the city. With its base engine and CVT, the CR-V LX earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway** vs. 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway from the Outback 2.5i.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V: Dimensions

Both the 2019 Subaru Outback and 2019 Honda CR-V offer versatile interiors with 60/40-split-folding rear seats, but the CR-V can provide more room for groceries or sports gear. Behind the rear seats in the CR-V, you’ll get 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume, compared to the 35.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats in the Outback. Folding the rear seats down expands the CR-V cargo area to a maximum of 75.8 cubic feet, providing more space than the 73.3 cubic feet maximum in the Outback.
