2012 Honda Crosstour vs. 2012 Subaru Outback

2012 Honda CrosstourCome check out the 2012 Honda Crosstour near Denver at our dealership. All of us here at Fisher Honda are excited to be able to present this exciting vehicle, and to talk about how it stacks up to the competition. One of the most direct competitors for the new Crosstour is the 2012 Subaru Outback. Let’s consider how comparable models look next to each other.

Powertrain and Performance

The 2012 Honda Crosstour’s powertrain excels, especially when compared to other vehicles in its class. Both it and the 2012 Subaru Outback have comparably sized engines. Honda’s crossover comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, while the Outback has a slightly larger 2.5L engine. The Honda, despite having the smaller engine, puts out 192 hp of torque, while the Outback is a bit behind, managing 170 hp.

Comfort and Convenience Features

Both of these vehicles come standard with plenty of interior features to make your drive easier. The steering wheel-mounted controls for audio and cruise control allow you to focus on the road. Both come with three handy power outlets in the front to keep all of your accessories charged. The Honda edges out the Subaru, however, with its standard rearview camera to aid in backing up and backing into tight parking spaces. While both cars come with an excellent sound system, including AM/FM radio with MP3 and CD player, only the Honda comes standard with a 6-disc CD changer and antitheft protection. Additionally, the Honda has a power moon roof for those nice clear drives around Denver.

Safety and Security

Both of these capable crossover vehicles come standard with great safety features. There are driver and passenger side airbags, as well as side curtain airbags. Both have stability and traction control systems. That said, the Honda pulls ahead with its electronic parking assist to help you avoid the minor damage possible through parking errors.
