Subaru Outback vs Honda CR-V: Cargo Space

Versatility is one of the most important features to look for when you're on the hunt for a quality compact SUV, especially when it comes to the vehicle's ability to store and transport all your necessary cargo. Fortunately, both the 2019 Outback and the 2019 CR-V offer accommodating cargo options.

The CR-V focuses mostly on interior cargo space, providing adequate room in the back to stow all your necessary equipment. In addition to offering a good amount of interior storage room itself, the Outback offers extra cargo space, thanks to its available roof racks, which provide the ability to store everything from luggage to bicycles.

The Safety Spotlight

Safety is one of the top factors that consumers look for in a new vehicle, both in terms of design and advanced safety systems. If you want to make sure you get a vehicle with the type of features that guarantee a secure ride, both the Honda CR-V and Subaru Outback provide great options.

In the CR-V, you'll find the Honda Sensing® safety system, which provides useful driver-assistive technology. For the most advanced safety system possible, you're going to want to choose the Outback and its EyeSight® suite of features. EyeSight® technology offers some truly supportive technology that includes such standouts as the Optimized Cruise Control and the Lane Keeping Assist features.

In addition to all these advanced safety features, the Subaru Outback also provides you with the Brake Override System. This available aid has the ability to reduce the operation of the gas pedal in the event that both it and the brake pedal are being pressed down at the same time. This action sees to it that the vehicle won't accelerate unintentionally. The CR-V is not available with this feature.   

Technology and Entertainment Features for the 2019 Subaru Outback vs Honda CR-V

 Both vehicles effectively make use of technology to boost your overall driving experience.

An example of this is the fact that they're both available with keyless entry. However, the 2019 Outback is actually able to take things a bit further by providing you with PIN-code vehicle access. This available feature allows you to ensure your Outback is even more secure whenever you're away. The CR-V isn't quite as secure, as it's not available with PIN-code access.  

Another aspect of technology that allows the Outback to stand out from the CR-V even more is the Outback model's available 8-inch Multimedia Navigation display that makes it easier for you to view and access all of its controls and settings without having to take too much of your attention off the road ahead. The largest audio display available in the Honda CR-V only measures at seven inches.

If listening to your favorite driving soundtrack while you're behind the wheel is a high priority for you, you'll be happy to know that both the 2019 Subaru Outback and the 2019 Honda CR-V provide you with multiple possibilities when it comes to the amount of speakers that you have at your disposal.

They both come standard with four speakers and are available with six. While the most speakers you'll get from the CR-V are the nine that you'll find in the Touring trim level, the Outback goes the extra mile by supplying you with a maximum of 12 speakers in the Limited trim level.

Plus, the 2019 Outback makes it possible for you to fill the cabin with whatever podcast, audiobook, or music that keeps you going strong via the equivalent of 576 watts. The most watts you'll get out of any audio system you'll find in the CR-V is 330.

2019 Subaru Outback vs Honda CR-V: All-Wheel Drive

If you're an adventurous car owner, you want to be certain to get a compact SUV that allows for total control no matter where your travels take you. Whether you're on the road or off, choosing either the CR-V or the Outback means having a compact SUV with formidable all-wheel drive. That makes it important to look into the system that's offered by each vehicle.

The CR-V comes equipped with a standard all-wheel drive system that'll give most drivers the level of control and stability they'll be needing. Should you want an extra level of traction, you're likely going to want to choose the 2019 Subaru Outback, due to the fact that it offers you Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that more effectively transfers power as road conditions change.
