The mid-size SUV world is more competitive than ever these days. One of the top choices in this hot segment is the Subaru Forester. That's because the Forester offers several unique features and edges out the competition in many categories. Let's take a look at how the Forster compares to other hot SUVs in the five-passenger, mid-size SUV segment.

The Subaru Forester Versus the Honda CR-V

Passenger space is important when it comes to a mid-size SUV. The Forester gives you up to 41.2 inches or front headroom space. The Honda CR-V only offers you up to 40.1 inches of front headroom.

The Forester also delivers when it comes to overall cargo capacity. You can fit up to 76.1 cubic square feet of cargo with the second row folded down. The Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, only has a top cargo capacity of 69.8 cubic feet available. If you are looking to make the most of your cargo space, then the Forester is going to be the choice for you.
