Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda CR-V

  • Do you feel a chill? You won't with the Crosstrek, because the heated seats you will be enjoying can warm up even the toughest passenger, while the CR-V expects you to warm up on your own.
  • The Crosstrek offers more legroom so you can feel more comfortable in the front, while the CR-V offers two inches less for legroom.
  • We know that some drivers enjoy the option of a manual transmission, but with the CR-V this isn't an option. Thankfully, Subaru is looking out for you and has offered this option

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Ford Escape

  • All-wheel drive is a standard feature with the Crosstrek, but it isn't offered with the Escape. Instead, drivers have to choose either front- or four-wheel drive at a higher cost.
  • Even if four-wheel drive appeals to you, the idea of losing two mpg highway with the Escape tends to hurt, especially if you end up having to walk those two extra miles. The Subaru Crosstrek offers 31 mpg highway, but the Escape offers 29 mpg highway.
  • While four-wheel drive might be attractive, the price of the Escape is not and it comes out as several thousand more than the Crosstrek, and considering all-wheel drive is standard, who can argue with paying less money?

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Toyota RAV4

  • 31 mpg highway sounds pretty great, doesn't it? That is what you can expect with Subaru, but with Toyota you will end up getting less.
  • Heated seats are a standard luxury in the Crosstrek, so you can enjoy a warm, uh, seat, but not with the RAV4, because this isn't available.
  • Aside from spending less with the Subaru Crosstrek, drivers can also expect to spend less on the destination fee, something that is sometimes overlooked when considering the cost of a new car. The Subaru model is $50 less in the destination fee than the Toyota model, and it comes in at several thousand dollars less.
