Outback Beats CR-V Covington La

The Honda CR-V in Covington, LA, along with the rest of the Honda lineup, is well-liked by many drivers, however, the Subaru Outback is beating the Honda CR-V at its own game.  While the CR-V is a decent vehicle, the Subaru Outback has much more to offer than the CR-V from exterior accessories to interior convenience features. The Outback's safety features and road capabilities alone are enough to beat the Honda CR-V. 


Perhaps the most important deciding factor for many car buyers is safety.  The Subaru Outback in Covington, LA is built on Subaru's Global Platform, which was first introduced on the 2017 Subaru Impreza.  The Subaru Global Platform is the safest and most affective Subaru platform yet, created to exceed current and future safety standards. Staying in line with the new Global Platform, the Subaru Outback is now equipped with standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and STARLINK Safety and Security. This including pre-collision braking, blind-spot detection, automatic collision notification, and more. Drivers can also opt for additional safety features such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Automatic Braking. Don't just take our word on it - the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Subaru Outback a 5-star overall safety rating and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Outback a Top Safety Pick Plus.  The Honda CR-V in Covington, LA lags in this category with only a Top Safety Pick award.  



Not only does the Subaru Outback Beat the Honda CR-V in safety, it also wins when it comes to road capabilities. With standard All-Wheel Drive, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and its low center of gravity, the Outback can go anywhere and conquer any road you're willing to take. Its active torque vectoring helps with control and stability when cornering and the available 6-cylinder gives drivers all the power they need. The Honda CR-V in Covington, LA, on the other hand only offers all-wheel drive at an additional charge and does not offer a 6-cylinder option at all. Even with the all-wheel drive option, the CR-V falls short of the Outback.  Kelley Blue Book rated the Subaru Outback the #1 best all-wheel drive vehicle under $25,000, where the Honda CR-V came in at #9.  



In addition to NHTSA, IIHS, and Kelley Blue Book accolades, Parents Magazine and Edmunds rated the Subaru Outback the best family car of the year.  The Outback retains its value better than any other vehicle in its class, has had the highest model loyalty in its class for three years in a row, and has been the best-selling CUV in its class for ten years running. It's no surprise 98% of Subaru vehicles sold in the past ten years are still on the road today.
