Why Should Pittsburgh, PA Drivers Choose the 2018 Subaru Forester Over the 2018 Toyota RAV4?

Let Us Count the Reasons!

A lot of drivers in the Pittsburgh, PA area are looking for a compact SUV, and who could blame them? Compact SUVs offer capability, fortitude, and extra cargo room without forcing you to drive something as big as a truck! When it comes to picking a compact SUV, however, there are a lot of choices on the market, but not all of them are good choices.

Here at Sendell Subaru, we think two of your best choices in this segment happen to be the 2018 Subaru Forester (no surprise there) and the 2018 Toyota RAV4. Both of these SUVs area well-regarded by critics, handsomely styled, and fun to drive, but we think one is better suited to Pittsburgh, PA drivers than the other; can you guess which one?



So, Why the 2018 Subaru Forester Over the 2018 Toyota RAV4?

  • There is only one engine available in the 2018 Toyota RAV4 lineup, so if you're not satisfied with 174 horsepower, consider moving over to the 2018 Subaru Forester, which features a standard 170-horsepower SUBARU BOXER® engine, but also features an available 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine capable of 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
  • The 2018 Subaru Forester seems to have a much nicer interior than the 2018 Toyota RAV4; both SUVs offer standard cloth upholstery, but if you'd like leather, don't waste your time with the 2018 RAV4 because all you can upgrade to is a leather-imitation material, called SofTex. On the other hand, the 2018 Subaru Forester offers available genuine leather upholstery.
  • 2018 Subaru Forester has more max cargo room than the 2018 Toyota RAV4 (74.7 cubic-feet in the 2018 Forester, 73.7 cubic-feet in the 2018 RAV4).
  • Not just more cargo room, but the 2018 Subaru Forester has more overall passenger room than the 2018 Toyota RAV4: 108.3 cubic-feet in the 2018 Forester vs 100.7 cubic-feet in the 2018 Toyota RAV4.
