Which SUV Compares Favorably?

The Comparative 2018 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2018 Subaru Forester Decision

Car buying experiences often come down to a single decision, and this choice can have a major impact on how you experience the open road moving into the future. For shoppers exploring the SUV marketplace, our team at Luther Brookdale Toyota focuses in on the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester for a head-to-head comparison. Explore how this popular new Toyota model bests some of the Forester's most well-known qualities with a review of cargo-space, safety, features and much more.


Exterior Features - 2018 Toyota RAV4 Advantages

The new RAV4 incorporates utility into its exterior design in a way that the 2018 Subaru Forester fails to match. An available hands-free liftgate, not found on the Forester, allows you to swipe your foot underneath the bumper to access rear cargo space without ever putting your grocery items, camping supplies or sport gear down. Standard Toyota Safety Sense™ reads and reacts to the road, surrounding vehicles and objects around you, utilizing active technology such as a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and dynamic radar cruise control to alert and intervene depending on the situation. The Subaru Forester fails to match these advanced features in its base model, and doesn't offer the optional proximity key that the 2018 Toyota RAV4 includes for quickly identifying your vehicle's parked location.

Interior Features - 2018 Toyota RAV4 Advantages

With 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are up, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 ranks ahead of the Forester for storage space when passengers are along for the ride. This new Subaru model has a key advantage in standard technology amenities for easy access to entertainment and engagement with connectivity. Six speakers to the Forester's four resonate around the cabin, with standard voice-activated command that the Subaru model doesn't offer. Additionally, options that the Forester doesn't extend include satellite radio, HD radio, smartphone integration and a push-button start.
