Better safety ratings: When it comes to safety, it's hard to beat Subaru's offerings. The Forester received a 5-star front crash driver safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA)-- the highest possible score-- while the RAV4 received 4. The Forester also has the RAV4 beat for overall safety in several other NHSTA categories.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

All-season capability: Though the CR-V is equipped with standard all-wheel drive, it's hard to beat the Forester's industry-leading standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is more responsive to loss of traction during inclement weather. The Forester also offers about 2 inches more ground clearance than the CR-V.

Top-ranked visibility: The Forester boasts incredible outward visibility thanks to a lower beltline, wider, taller rear windows, and extended front windows for greater front-end visibility. In addition, the Forester has a larger panoramic sunroof with which to enjoy the sun and fresh air.
