Compare the Subaru Forester with Other New SUVs in Palatine

The design, capability, smarts, and value of the new Subaru Forester make it a great SUV for Chicago area drivers, but it is part of a competitive SUV class. Most major car brands have a wide range of new SUVs for sale, including Subaru, which means that car shoppers compare the Subaru Forester with models from Honda, Jeep, Ford, and more. Of course, as a car shopper, finding the right fit for a new vehicle is vital, but it can take a lot of work. Well, we're here to help car shoppers compare the Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Jeep Cherokee! Keep reading to see highlights of what we found during this crossover SUV comparison.

Subaru Forester vs. Ford Escape

  • Capability shines in the new Subaru Forester, and it shows when comparing it to the Ford Escape. The Subaru Forester has greater ground clearance, for when you're camping at a remote destination, as well as more horsepower than the base engine of the Ford Escape.
  • Hate dealing with snow and ice? All-wheel drive makes it much easier, and this system comes standard on every new Subaru Forester for sale near Arlington Heights but is a $1,500 addition to the Ford Escape. This makes the Subaru Forester both more capable and a better value SUV.
  • Adaptive cruise control is another standard feature of the new Subaru Forester, and it makes highway driving, even in rush hour, much easier. This feature is only an option on the most expensive Ford Escape trim levels.
  • These new SUVs have similar exterior dimensions, but the Subaru Forester makes better use of them, which shows as it has more cubic feet of passenger volume and a max cargo capacity that's over 10 cubic feet more than that of the new Ford Escape.

Subaru Forester vs. Jeep Cherokee

  • Subaru and Jeep are both car brands known for their capability, but the Subaru Forester outshines the Jeep Cherokee among compact SUVs. The base engine of the Subaru Forester has more horsepower and torque than the base engine of the Jeep Cherokee, while also coming standard with all-wheel drive, which the new Cherokee can't claim.
  • When you want an SUV ready to explore beyond Des Plaines, you want space for all your gear. Well, the new Subaru Forester has a max cargo capacity of 76.1 cubic feet, which blows the Jeep Cherokee's 54.7 cubic feet of max cargo space out of the water.
  • Feature-wise, the new Subaru Forester impresses with both its standard features, like pre-collision braking and lane departure warning, and its available ones, like heated seats in both rows. The Jeep Cherokee does not have the same standard driver-assist technologies of the Subaru Forester, nor does it have the same available features, like rear heated seats.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • The Subaru Forester and Honda CR-V have been going against each other for many years now, and we think that the new Subaru Forester has more to offer than this popular Honda SUV. The Subaru Forester comes standard with more modern technologies that we know drivers care about, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, than the new Honda CR-V.
  • Another standard feature of the Subaru Forester is all-wheel drive, which makes any model of this SUV ready for winter around Schaumburg. The Honda CR-V does not come standard with all-wheel drive and, in fact, makes you pay $1,500 more for the option.
  • Crossover SUVs should provide the cabin space you need in a body that doesn't feel bulky in the city. Well, the new Subaru Forester has a more compact exterior than the Honda CR-V, but it provides six more cubic feet of passenger volume and a greater max cargo capacity than the new Honda SUV.
