2017 Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V: Performance Facts

In each base model of the 2017 Forester and the CR-V you'll find a 4-cylinder engine and negligible differences in fuel economy and horsepower between the two. The CR-V only offers an automatic transmission while the Forester offers the option of a 6-speed manual transmission for finer control. On top of that, both vehicles feature a turbocharged engine at upper trim levels, but the Subaru BOXER engine in the Forester has more horsepower than the CR-V. The biggest difference when it comes to performance is that all-wheel drive is standard on every Forester but just an option in the CR-V.
