Whether your activities typically include tackling your daily commute, setting off on adventures, or some combination of both, having the right vehicle to help you make the trip is essential. That's where the 2020 Subaru Forester comes into play. This compact SUV is well-suited for just about any lifestyle, offering excellent fuel economy, plenty of cargo space, a robust roster of standard tech and safety features, and standard all-wheel drive. So, if you're eager to find a new ride that was born to keep up with your lifestyle, dive into our comparison to see how the Forester triumphs over its rival, the 2020 Toyota RAV4.

2020 Subaru Forester vs. 2020 Toyota RAV4


The 2020 Subaru Forester starts at just $24,495. This is $1,355 less than the base-level Toyota RAV4, which starts at $25,850. Despite being more expensive, the RAV4 offers less passenger volume, less cargo room, and it doesn't come standard with AWD like the Forester does. So, if you're looking for a vehicle that is ready for all New England has to offer, the Forester supplies what you need for less.

Interior Space

A quick glance will reveal that the Forester comes out on top, with more room for you, your passengers, and your cargo. The Forester packs an astounding 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the RAV4 falls short with only 98.9 cubic feet. The Forester gives you 41.2 inches of headroom in the front seats vs. RAV4's 37.7 inches. You'll also enjoy 43.3 inches of legroom in the front seat of the Forester vs. 41 inches in the RAV4. And what would a Subaru be without extra space for your cargo? The Forester offers 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, outdoing the RAV4's 69.8 cubic feet.

All-Wheel Drive

The 2020 Subaru Forester is built around the sophisticated Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, giving you more confidence and control for the roads ahead, regardless of weather and road conditions. What's better? Symmetrical AWD comes standard across all 2020 Subaru Forester trim levels! You can't say the same for the RAV4. The RAV4 offers AWD as an option, but you'll need to shell out an extra $975 for the upgrade.

Owner Satisfaction

According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ASCI), Subaru holds its position in the top spot. The ASCI reports that customers find Subaru models to offer superior quality and value, making models like the Subaru Forester stand out among rivals like the Toyota RAV4. The widespread appeal of the Forester and other models in the Subaru lineup is easy to understand when you consider factors like phenomenal reliability, standard all-wheel drive, advanced safety features, and more!
