The 2019 Subaru Outback has its merits, but next to the 2019 Honda CR-V, it can’t match its performance and cargo space. The Outback also comes at a higher cost. Explore the Honda CR-V vs. Subaru Outback below, and learn what makes the CR-V stand out against the Outback.

Subaru Outback vs. Honda CR-V: MSRP

If pricing is a deciding factor between the Outback or CR-V, the Honda CR-V offers a more affordable option by almost $2,000:

  • 2019 Honda CR-V: Starting MSRP of $24,350*
  • 2019 Subaru Outback: Starting MSRP of $26,345

Despite the cost difference, the higher price of the Outback doesn’t equal stronger performance or value.

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

If you are looking for increased engine power and excellent fuel economy ratings, the Subaru Outback can’t match the Honda CR-V. See their specs below:

  • Engine: The Honda CR-V is powered by a 184-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine while the Subaru Outback comes with a lesser 175-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder.
  • Transmission: Both SUVs include a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
  • MPG Ratings: Fuel economy ratings are comparable, but the CR-V gets one mile per gallon more in the city. With its base engine and CVT, the CR-V LX earns 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

While both SUVs include 60/40-split-folding rear seats, but the Honda CR-V offers additional space for your gear. Behind the rear seats of the CR-V, you’ll find 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Subaru Outback only provides 35.5 cubic feet behind its rear seats. Folding the rear seats down expands the CR-V cargo area to a maximum of 75.8 cubic feet while the 2019 Outback tops out at 73.3 cubic feet maximum.
