Subaru Outback Premium
with All Weather Pkg
Honda CR-V is in the "Small Crossover" segment and the Outback is a "Midsize Crossover." The distance between the axles ("wheelbase") is a substantial five inches longer on the Subaru, so the ride is smoother compared to the CR-V with its closer-set axles (think limousine vs. army Jeep). CR-V typically competes with Subaru Forester or Toyota RAV4, but we see many people comparing it with the Outback, too. Either way, for under $30,000, you can drive a practical vehicle with a great reputation for quality, value, and longevity.
