Subaru Forester vs Toyota RAV4


  • Both the Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4 offer nearly identical power output, 174 pound-feet of torque and 172 pound-feet of torque respectively, but where they begin to distance themselves from the other is in the turbocharged option offered in the Forester's higher trims. With no truly comparable feature or option in the RAV4, the forester offers a more exciting experience.
  • The Symmetrical Al-Wheel Drive that comes standard on the Subaru Forester ensures a far more confident experience, regardless of weather and road conditions. The RAV4 does have a few AWD options, however the investment required for this is significant.

Cargo Space

  • Significantly larger manufacturer cargo volume, the Forester offers 108.3 cubic feet to the RAV4's 101.9, also works to highlight the superiority of the forester in the SUV segment.

  • The Toyota RAV4 features newly enhanced electronic safety systems, but compared to the numerous offerings and copious awards for the Subaru Forester, it would appear that this enhancement wasn't enough to usurp the position of the Forester.
  • The EyeSight® suite of driver assist technologies is unsurpassed, providing numerous automated features and alerts to help protect you and your loved ones. This is reflected in the superior safety ratings for the Forester, including numerous 5-star ratings and the recognition as a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS.
