If you want a new crossover that makes every outing in Grand Junction more comfortable and can accommodate all your needs, we invite you to check out our great selection of new Subaru Forester models at Grand Junction Subaru. The Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV with nothing compact about it. It offers a spacious interior with plenty of space for you and your passengers to stretch out, and ample cargo space for all your storage needs. The Forester delivers tremendous capability, including standard all-wheel drive, allowing you to tackle snow covered roads in Clifton, CO and venture off-road the next time you go hiking or camping. With numerous trim levels available, we're sure we have a Forester model that's right for you.

To help demonstrate what makes the Subaru Forester a great vehicle for Redlands, CO drivers, we're going to compare it to the new Honda CR-V, allowing you to see some of the many advantages that the Forester can offer you.

Compare Performance


  • The Subaru Forester is built for drivers in Colorado. That's why every model comes equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, allowing you to traverse snow, mud, rock, sand, and everything in between to give you freedom and confidence behind the wheel. The new Honda CR-V comes equipped with front-wheel drive standard, but all-wheel drive is available on all models, only at a higher price.
  • Every Forester model comes with 8.7-inches of ground clearance, allowing you to avoid obstacles and enjoy a commanding view of the road ahead. The new Honda CR-V falls offers slightly less with 7.8-inches of ground clearance.
  • Both the Forester and CR-V offer impressive fuel economy so you can skip the pump on your daily commute to work. However, the Forester offers 16.6 gallons of fuel capacity while the CR-V offers 14 gallons, allowing you to travel further on a full tank when you choose the Forester over the CR-V.
