Compare Compact Crossovers for Your Long Island Drives

With its roomy accommodations, ample cargo space, and easy driving dynamics, the Honda CR-V has long been a top choice in the crowded compact crossover class. For 2023, Honda has taken the CR-V's winning formula to the next level with bolder styling, more practicality, and upgraded features. While Deer Park and Smithtown drivers have more than a few options in the segment, the Honda CR-V delivers a well-rounded experience that's tough to beat. Here's a quick look at how it compares in a few key areas to three prominent competitors, the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, and Nissan Rogue.

Honda CR-V vs. Toyota RAV4

  • Accommodations: While both models offer roomy cabins, the Honda CR-V is more spacious for passengers. Rear-seat occupants, in particular, will appreciate the CR-V, which offers 3.2 inches more legroom and 4.9 inches more hip room than the RAV4.

  • Practicality: The Honda CR-V has one of the roomiest cargo areas in the segment, with up to 39.3 cubic feet behind the second row and 76.5 cubes behind the first. The RAV4 certainly doesn't lack cargo space, but it falls behind with cargo measurements of 37.6 and 69.8 cubic feet.

  • Features: Both models come standard with many advanced driver-assist technologies, including collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping systems. However, the 2023 CR-V's base trim also includes features like Blind Spot Information System, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated front seats. You'd have to climb the trim ladder to get these amenities in the RAV4.

Honda CR-V vs. Subaru Forester

  • Practicality: The Honda CR-V offers much more room to carry your things, with 39.3 cubic feet behind the second row and 76.5 behind the first. The Subaru Forester has just 26.9 to 69.1 cubic feet.

  • Performance: The Honda CR-V is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo-four making 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. If you want more power and efficiency for your Commack commute, Sport and Sport Touring models equip a hybrid powertrain with 204 horsepower, 247 pound-feet of torque, and up to an EPA-estimate 40 mpg combined fuel economy rating. The Subaru Forester offers just one 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (182 hp, 176 lb-ft).

  • Features: Every CR-V comes standard with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, while the Forester requires climbing a couple of trim levels. The CR-V also offers features that aren't available anywhere in the Forester's lineup, like a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and a hands-free liftgate.

Honda CR-V vs. Nissan Rogue

  • Accommodations: The CR-V and Rogue both have roomy front seats. However, riders in the second row will have an extra half-inch of headroom and 2.5 inches more legroom in the CR-V.

  • Cargo: The CR-V (76.5 cubic feet) and Rogue (74.1 cubic feet) both have impressive maximum cargo measurements. However, with the rear seats occupied, the CR-V offers 39.3 cubic feet compared to the Rogue's 36.5.

  • Features: Both models offer many standard technologies. But the Honda CR-V's base trim includes several amenities that require a higher trim level in the Nissan Rogue. Examples include lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone ac, and heated front seats.
