Versatility Meets Power
Performance
Confidently Conquer Tough Terrain

Both vehicles offer similar powertrains, getting you where you need to go safely and in style. However, when we compare their upgraded engines, only one SUV reigns supreme.

Subaru Outback
A More Powerful Crossover Performance

Available in the 2022 Subaru Outback is the enhanced 2.4-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine. It generates 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque and is paired perfectly with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This unique engine is exclusive to Subaru, offering a lower center of gravity and less drag.

Subaru Outback
Engine to Engine

The upgraded engine in the 2022 CR-V is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder inline with turbocharger. Though more powerful than in previous years, it produces less power than the Outback. With only 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, it might leave you wanting more—especially since it lacks standard AWD!

Subaru Outback
Towing with Total Confidence

Hauling large items behind your vehicle is a treat as well as a necessity for many vacations. Both offers tools for the job, but only one can haul bigger items such as a small motorboat.

Subaru Outback
Leave No Items Behind

When properly equipped, the Honda CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds, but the Outback beats it handily with a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. The Outback can maneuver more nimbly while towing, too, thanks to standard traction and handling features, such as X-MODE®.

Subaru Outback
Advanced Off-Road Handling

Your AWD engagement in the Outback increases due to an optimized output and transmission ratio courtesy of X-MODE®. You’ll have more grip on low-traction surfaces, especially if you’re taking a trailer off-road.

Though the CR-V offers available AWD and stability controls, it lacks advanced handling features, such as X-MODE®.

Subaru Outback
Amenity-Packed Cabins

While engine power is great, it won't mean anything if your SUV isn't comfortable on the inside. Both the 2022 Subaru Outback and the Honda CR-V have cozy interiors with plenty of fun for everyone on board.

Subaru Outback
Stay Entertained on the Go

Everyone loves to sing along to their favorite songs on a road trip or just catch up on that audiobook they’ve been chipping away at. Both SUVs have cutting-edge sound systems and connectivity to make these road trip activities more pleasurable.

However, if you want to stream from the internet, you may want to choose the Outback over the CR-V as it has available Wi-Fi connectivity, which the CR-V doesn't offer. With this feature, your passengers in the back row can stream their favorite shows! Plus, you can post all your vacation pictures to social media, no matter where you are.
