Compare the Subaru Crosstrek with the Honda HR-V

The Compact SUV Segment is flooded with choices. So how do you know which compact SUV is for you? One way to do that is to compare selected models.

Both the Subaru and the Honda offer a lot. To call the Honda a "bad" vehicle would be dishonest. When compared, the Subaru Crosstrek just seems to be a better all-around choice than the HR-V, though. From the Subaru Outback to the Forester, to the Baja, Subaru has been making SUVs that handle more like cars than trucks for quite some time. Its years of experience have arguably prepared the automaker better for the official compact SUV segment than Honda. Below, we offer a comparison of the Honda and Subaru, and you can be the judge, yourself.

Standard Symmetrical AWD

If Subaru is known best for anything, it is either the popular boxer engine it produces or the AWD systems it offers on its vehicles. When considering what an SUV really is, we feel it is important for AWD to be included in the mix. Customers from Belmont to Boston and everywhere in between will appreciate that AWD is standard on all Subaru Crosstrek vehicles. It is not standard on the Honda HR-V.

You've Got the Power

You've got the power - if you're in a Crosstrek, that is. The Subaru Crosstrek's 2.0-liter engine produces considerably more horsepower and torque than the Honda's does. So next time you're headed up a mountain on your ski trip or are trying to pass the car which is using the passing lane to cruise under the speed limit, you'll be happy if you've chosen the Crosstrek.

Space for the Long Haul

The Subaru Crosstrek features more front headroom and legroom than the Honda HR-V does. It also features more overall cubic feet of passenger volume. Also, the Crosstrek comes standard with versatile raised roof rails, meaning that you can put more on the roof, saving interior space for passengers, or making room for more stuff. Whether you're traveling to or from Cambridge, Natick, Newton,  Wakefield - or beyond Massachusetts, this car is designed for the long haul.



Speaking of the long haul, the Crosstrek has the lowest 5-year cost to own in its class. So you'll pay less to get where you're going, for a longer amount of time if you've chosen the Crosstrek. And you'll get there more quietly, too, thanks to the Crosstrek's noise-reducing acoustic windshield.

Ground Clearance

The Subaru Crosstrek boasts an imnpressive 8.7" of ground clearance vs. the Honda's 7.3" of clearance. The difference is notable.
