The Subaru XV uses 1.5 l less in the mixed cycle in relation to the Honda CR-V IV 2.0 i-VTEC 155HP manual 4x4. The difference in the amount of 19 % is not significant. Nevertheless within some time it would allow you to make a considerable reduction of costs.
The Subaru consumes 15 % fewer fuel in city traffic than the Honda CR-V IV. The difference at the level of 1.4 l will be very big in daily using car. Additionally, within several years it may bring real and noticeable cost savings. Moreover note that presented results of the average fuel consumption can be considerably lifted if you drive swiftly. The difference in fuel consumption of the cars selected by you is so big that you should consider to choose vehicles with similar engines. Only then will the comparision have a sense.

Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed where the highest torque is reached determines how fast an engine reaches its best performance with increase in rotational speed. The lower rmp or the longer range at which the torque is the greatest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
In the aspect of fuel tank size it is the Subaru XV which can comprise 3 percent more fuel in relation to the Honda CR-V IV. The average fuel container capacity in the mini 4x4 class, which is represented by the Subaru, is 61 l, whereas in small off-road 4x4 segment (represented by the Honda) it is 61 l.
The wheelbase of a vehicle means the distance separating its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to more desirable vehicle's weight distribution. Subaru has 11 millimeters longer wheelbase distance in comparison to Honda. Wheelbase dimensions are crucial to the balance and steering. Thus, the mass of Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
Ground clearance means the space between the vehicle underbody and the ground. When it comes to the two compared cars, it is the Subaru XV that has 53 millimeters higher ground clearance when compared with the Honda CR-V IV. For this reason the Subaru will cope better when driving over imperfect roads and high curbs in the city. However, the higher ground clearance means a higher center of gravity, which can adversely affect the handling of the vehicle.
A Boxer put inside the
Subaru is noticeably
better because it is smaller and creates less vibrations in
relation to engine with cylinders arranged in a straight line.
Moreover bear in mind
layout results in that a
automobile has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of In-line
engine, like the one
put inside the Honda CR-V IV, is that because of its simplicity of
construction it can be fuel efficient compared to
other types of engines.
