Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda HR-V

  • Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive is a standard feature on the Crosstrek. It's available on the HR-V, but it costs extra
  • The Crosstrek is based on a compact car platform (the Impreza's), while the HR-V springs from a subcompact platform (the Honda Fit), so the Crosstrek has more room and more power.
  • The Crosstrek's has a smoother, more comfortable ride, as it sits higher in the saddle so there's more room for the suspension to compress. Plus, the Crosstrek has 8.7 inches of ground clearance, versus the HR-V's 7.3 inches.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Jeep Renegade

  • The Crosstrek's ride feels sportier and it's more comfortable taking tight corners on twisty roads because of its design and athleticism. The Renegade looks, and handles, more like a traditional SUV with a straight-up seating position and a firmer ride.
  • The Renegade is another subcompact-based crossover (borrowing heavily from the FIAT 500X platform), so the compact Crosstrek offers more cargo space and interior room for passengers.
  • The Crosstrek gets up to an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon combined; efficiency that saves you more money than the Jeep Renegade and its 26 mpg combined.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Toyota C-HR

  • Subaru's are perfect cars for New England thanks to their Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is standard in the Crosstrek, but the Toyota C-HR is only available with front-wheel drive.
  • Drivers can choose between a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a manual transmission in the Crosstrek. The C-HR only offers a CVT.
  • Front-wheel drive and CVTs are used to help with efficiency, but even with these features the C-HR gets less miles per gallon highway than the Crosstrek.
  • The Crosstrek's engine is more efficient, but it also packs more horsepower and torque than the C-HR's, which makes for a more confident ride.
  • There is 101 cubic feet of passenger room and 55.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the Crosstrek, so you can fit gear and not feel cramped, but this is not true of the C-HR, which has specs of 84 cubic feet and 36.4 cubic feet respectively.
