The 2019 Honda CR-V has a starting MSRP of $24,350* while the 2019 Subaru Outback starts at $26,345 MSRP. And, as you’ll see below, a higher price doesn’t always equal higher performance or value.

MPG & Performance

The new Honda CR-V outshines the Outback with greater engine power and fuel economy ratings:

  • Engine: The Honda CR-V enjoys a more powerful 184-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine while the Subaru Outback gets a weaker 175-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder engine.
  • Transmission & Drivetrain: Both SUVs include a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). All-wheel drive is standard for the Outback and optional for the CR-V.
  • MPG Ratings: Fuel economy ratings are comparable, but the CR-V gets one mile per gallon more in the city. With its base engine and CVT, the CR-V LX earns 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway** vs. 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway from the Outback 2.5i.
