2019 Honda CR-V in Covington LA: Does the 2019 Subaru Outback Stack up?

While the 2019 Honda CR-V in Covington, LA is a top seller because of its affordable base model, it doesn't have as many comfort or safety features as the base 2019 Subaru Outback. Both mid-size vehicles are suitable for hauling the family and all their gear, but the interior of the 2019 CR-V is more cluttered (and slightly smaller) than that of the Outback. Below, we'll compare these two models in greater detail and you'll learn why the Outback comes out on top.


Interior Features and Design Elements

While there's nothing flashy about the inside of the 2019 Subaru Outback in Covington, LA, it is designed for functionality and comfort. Controls are grouped primarily below the touchscreen infotainment display, and all important buttons are within the driver's reach. The Outback offers a quieter and more comfortable ride than the CR-V, due mainly to its soft suspension.

Although the Outback and the CR-V both have roomy interiors, the Subaru has the edge in terms of versatility and ease of use. The Outback's front seats are extra-wide and very plush, and unlike the Honda, there's no need to fold down the rear seats to optimize cargo space. The 2019 Outback's upper-level trims have power adjustable driver's seats with lumbar support; this feature isn't found in the Honda CR-V.

Safety Features

There are some big changes in the 2019 Subaru Outback from previous model years. The long list of standard safety features now includes auto emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, hill hold assist, hill descent control, and active lane control. On the 2019 Honda CR-V in Covington, LA, these are mere options. All Outbacks, except for the base model, can be equipped with Subaru's exclusive EyeSIght safety package, which adds auto high beams and blind spot monitoring.

The EyeSight safety suite is popular for its downward effect on auto insurance premiums. Add Subaru's standard always-on all-wheel drive, and you'll get a vehicle with some of the best safety scores in the segment. By comparison, the 2019 Honda CR-V has few advanced safety features, and although AWD is available on some trims, it comes at a hefty price.

Affordability and Resale Value

We think the 2019 Outback is a great buy, not just for its reasonable price, but for its lengthy list of standard safety and tech features. Like most other Subaru models, the Outback gives you years of reliable service and a high resale value that's not found in the Honda. The CR-V depreciates faster than the outback, and unless it's bought with a big tech and safety package, it's not as great of an investment.
