How does the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Stack Up Against the Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke and Jeep Renegade?

In the increasingly crowded world of compact crossovers, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek stands out for its athletic styling; passenger and cargo-carrying capacity (both inside and up top); and, of course, Subaru's legendary symmetrical all-wheel drive, which is standard on the Crosstrek, as well as all other Subaru models.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda HR-V

  • Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive as a standard feature on the Crosstrek. It's available on the HR-V, but as an add-on.
  • 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 and so has more room for the suspension to compress. In fact 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 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 an 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 of course comes standard with Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive. The Jeep Renegage is offered in both front-wheel and four-wheel drive.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Nissan Juke

  • The Juke is another subcompact-based crossover, so again, space is tight - for passengers and  cargo alike - compared to the roominess of the Crosstrek.
  • While the Juke also offers all-wheel drive, it is again an available option. The Crosstrek's symmetrical all-wheel drive system is standard and was built from the ground up, and the design ensures that power is evenly distributed to all wheels all the time.
  • In terms of driver assist technology, only the Crosstrek offers Subaru's EyeSight® system, which uses two small cameras mounted on either side of the rearview mirror to monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you if you sway outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations, helping you avoid or reduce frontal impacts.

Still, there are other compelling choices in the category. Part of deciding whether the Crosstrek is right for you is comparing this model to the closest competitors in its segment, which is what we have done here for your consideration.
