Even when they visit our Wilkes-Barre, PA Toyota dealership to see our inventory of Toyota SUVs for sale in our new car inventory, many drivers are drawn to the 2019 Toyota RAV4. If they’re not interested in the best-selling crossover for themselves, motorists often think the vehicle is perfect for their kids, spouses, or parents.

While the new Toyota RAV4 is a great pick for drivers of all ages, some people are curious about how the perennially popular crossover compares to its rivals. There’s no doubt about it—the 2019 Toyota RAV4 competes in a crowded automobile class. Although that’s true, the Toyota RAV4 still comes out on top when compared to worthy competitors like the 2019 Subaru Forester.

Both the Toyota RAV4 and the Subaru Forester were redesigned for the 2019 model year, which means each crossover kicked off its fifth generation in 2019. We’re proud to tell you that both vehicles have something else in common—they each earned the highest safety rating possible from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Top Safety Pick+.

While the 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the new Subaru Forester are each powered by a 2.5-liter engine, the engine in the Toyota crossover is more powerful, producing 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The redesigned Subaru Forester is only available with one all-wheel drive system, whereas the new Toyota RAV4 is eligible for two. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 can be outfitted with a standard AWD system or an upgraded system that has torque vectoring, which enhances handling on dirt- or snow-covered roadways.
