2019 Subaru Forester vs. 2019 Toyota RAV4


  • Every new 2019 Subaru Forester model comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, providing you with the capability and confidence you need to traverse Long Island in the winter and enjoy off road adventures all over Smithtown, NY and beyond. The RAV4,  however, comes equipped with standard front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive equipped models will end up costing you more.
  • Both the Forester and RAV4 offer impressive fuel economy, with the slight nod going to the RAV4. But with 16.6 gallons of fuel capacity in the Forester compared to the 14.5 gallons of fuel capacity in the RAV4, you can travel further on a single tank in the Forester.
  • Even with a complete upgrade to the RAV4, the Forester still offers more ground clearance with 8.7-inches compared to 8.4-inches in the RAV4.

Interior and Technology Features

  • Every new 2019 Forester model comes with a standard Starlink multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to wirelessly connect your phone via Bluetooth and control it using voice recognition technology or the touchscreen display when you aren't moving. The RAV4 also offers a standard multimedia system with Apple CarPlay, but it doesn't offer Android Auto, leaving many drivers without the compatibility they need.
  • The Forester offers more space for passengers and cargo alike than the RAV4 does. The 2019 Forester now offers 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume while the RAV4 only offers 100.7 cubic feet of passenger volume. The Forester also offers up to 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded flat, while the RAV4 falls short with up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • Both vehicles offer an array of standard and available safety features that earn them great safety scores, but only the Forester offers available LED steering responsive headlights.
  • Only the Forester offers the DriverFocus system to prevent distracted driving and warn you if it feels that you are losing focus on the road. The RAV4, while it does offer many safety features, doesn't have any comparable driver awareness system.
