Does the 2020 Honda CR-V in Covington LA Top the 2020 Subaru Outback

 

The 2020 Honda CR-V in Covington LA is a roomy five-seat crossover that offers a versatile shape and innovative technology inside and out. It earned impressive crash-test scores and excellent fuel economy ratings, however, the vehicle is not particularly stylish or fun to drive.

On the other hand, the 2020 Subaru Outback in Covington LA is expected to be one of the most stylish and fun Subaru models yet. Subaru calls it an SUV, but the Outback is really a station wagon with ground clearance. Its capability as both a cargo hauler and an all-weather companion appeals to buyers with adventure on the mind. Subaru's signature horizontally opposed boxer engines come in a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder and provide exceptional fuel economy.

Make the best decision

The 2020 Subaru Outback has a fantastic driving position, an outstanding all-wheel drive system, and stellar safety ratings. Unfortunately, the 2020 Honda CR-V in Covington LA just doesn't stack up. Whether you want it for your family or just for you, there's no doubt the Subaru Outback is amazing for anything. More information should trickle out about the new Subaru Outback over the next few months ahead of its official debut. Otherwise, the new Outback should come with a vibe similar to what it has always had, retaining its rugged image and practical mien.
