The fuel economy is distinctly to Subaru XV's advantage. This vehicle uses 2.4 l fewer diesel in the combined cycle in relation to the Honda CR-V IV. Keep in mind that average fuel consumption in the mixed cycle for the small off-road 4x4 segment, in which the Subaru is classified, equals to 7.5 l while the Subaru XV uses by 28 % less fuel than the average.
Thanks to 82 percent greater torque, the engine of the Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda CR-V IV 2.0 i-VTEC 155HP manual 4x4. This, in turn, have positive implications for a car's acceleration.
The fuel consumption while driving inside city is considerably to the Subaru XV's advantage. This car consumes 28 percent less oil while driving inside city than the Honda CR-V IV. Better fuel econumy means an increase in cruising range.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A small difference that amounts to 9 % shows that the Honda is the worst car of these two compared. In the „mini 4x4 segment, being represented by the Honda CR-V IV, the average acceleration to 100km/h is 10.9 s and is by 0.7 s lower than this of Honda car.
Trunk capacity with seats down
Maximal torque RPM
Such a big difference stems from the fact that both vehicles are equipped with different engines. The Subaru is equipped with the diesel engine whereas the Honda CR-V IV is equipped with the petrol engine. Because of the fact that these cars has different types of engines, comparing this characteristic is pointless.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 is greater in relation to this of the Honda CR-V IV by 8 kilometers per hour, which allows the Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 to cover faster long stretches of highway. The difference at the level of 4 percent is little and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
The winner of this comparison in the category of fuel tank capacity is Subaru XV that can hold by 2 l more diesel in comparison to the Honda CR-V IV 2.0 i-VTEC 155HP manual 4x4.
The Subaru has 11 mm longer wheelbase when compared to Honda CR-V IV 2.0 i-VTEC 155HP manual 4x4. Consequently the Subaru is more safe and has a better stability. Besides, longer wheelbase influences on convenient and more comfortable riding.
Ground clearance is a critical factor in several relevant features of a car. It is the most important for SUV cars though all vehicles appreciate the higher suspension. The Subaru XV 2.0D 147HP manual 4x4 has 53 mm larger clearance than the Honda. In addition to effective mobility in rough terrain, the Subaru XV will also be easier pushed urban obstacles such as high curbs, for example.
A Boxer engine installed in the
Subaru XV occurs to be distinctly
better because it can be shorter and
lighter and generates less vibrations in comparison to straight
Moreover bear in mind
that its flat
layout results in that a
vehicle has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of engine which cylinders are arranged in a line, like the one
installed in the Honda CR-V IV 2.0 i-VTEC 155HP manual 4x4, is that thanks to its simplicity of
construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
The Subaru XV has 1 cc greater cubic capacity than the Honda CR-V IV. As the difference is not big, the Subaru XV should accelerate slightly better, of course if other paramerters are does not play a role.
