The Best SUV for Summer Fun - The 2019 Honda CR-V in Clear Lake

Summer break is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to upgrade your SUV to one that can make each trip memorable! The 2019 Honda CR-V in Clear Lake is just that SUV, and we’ve made a little comparison to help guide you in the right direction when you’re out shopping around. So without further ado, check out all of the fantastic features the CR-V has compared to the 2019 Subaru Forester.


Variety is the spice of life, and with the Honda CR-V, you’ll have the option to choose between a front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive transmission. The Forester only offers a two-wheel drive, so off-road adventures are off the table. When you’re out exploring the town or discovering new trails, the CR-V’s ergonomics will make each pit stop a breeze with the standard easy entry system and automatic windows. When the ignition is switched off or doors unlocked, the driver's seat will glide back making getting in and out simple. And if you forget to close the windows once you get out, or maybe need to let a breeze run through the cabin before getting in, you can close the windows via outside door handle and even open them from a distance using the keyless remote. The Forester’s windows can only be operated from inside the cabin with the ignition on.


When packing up the crew before hitting the open road, you won’t have to worry about fitting all of your gear in the back because it has more cargo room than the Forester, 39.2 cubic feet versus 35.4, and that’s with its rear seat up. It also has a lower cargo hatch to make loading and unloading all of that gear a breeze, and a hands-free liftgate. With just a wave of your foot under the back bumper, the CR-V’s liftgate will open and close if your hands are too full. It seems like the Forester needs a little adjusting to make this comparison fair because it doesn’t offer a hands-free tailgate system.


When you’re planning a trip, it’s important to consider everyone’s ability to entertain themselves when you’re on the road for multiple hours at a time. With the CR-V, you’ll get to play around with Apple CarPlay® Integration and Android Auto™ so everyone can take turns listening to their favorite music and podcasts. All of this and more is displayed on the 7-inch Display Audio touch-screen so you can easily navigate with a touch, pinch, or swipe.


If you’re looking for an SUV to make this summers road trip better than last years, the 2019 Honda CR-V in Clear Lake is what you need. Check out more awesome and advanced features when you come in for a test drive at Honda of Clear Lake! See you soon!
