As a former Honda and Toyota owner, I read the information in Consumer report about the Forester. Along with that review, Edmunds, and the fact one of my son's owns one, I bought our first one. This car rides so much better than our Honda CR-V. This probably will not be our last Subaru.
Visibility, handling, fuel economy for an AWD vehicle, 27.9 on first tank, and a great ride for an SUV.
Perhaps a few more storage places. Honda does have a few more places to store stuff.
