Outback vs Crosstrek vs Forester
Which did you go with and why not the others? I've heard the Outback has a smoother ride over the Forester due to the longer wheelbase. How does the Crosstrek compare to the other two when it comes to ride quality? I know the Forester is a better buy for those who have larger dogs due to it's cargo height.
I sat in all 3 at the local dealership. The seat of the Forester sits the highest which is something I like, but would settle for the Outback (or Crosstrek) if the ride quality is noticeably better. I'd like to hear from those who have more time with these vehicles.
Also, are the AWD systems on these vehicles created equally? I've seen YouTube videos comparing AWD vehicles from different brands and see some are not very functional.
I'm definitely waiting at least for the 2015 models since the Outback is due for a redesign, but may consider a 14 if the 15 does not see much change.
Thanks for any feedback!
I have been a Honda owner for many years. Excited about switching it up :-)
