Subaru Crosstrek vs Honda HR-V

Safety

As a youthful explorer, you love being able to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer. Thanks to the Crosstrek’s intelligent design, there’s no limit to where you can go. Whether you’re driving up Mount Washington or venturing through rural Maine, the Crosstrek will get you there safely.

Even when you’re looking forward to reaching the top (where the view is better), the Crosstrek will keep an eye on what’s behind you with its standard rear-vision camera. Plus, with seven standard airbags, you and your fellow explorers will feel completely protected.

Now with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, you’ll always have an extra set of eyes on the road – even when you’re off-road. From pre-collision breaking to adaptive cruise control, Subaru has taken safety to a whole new level.

For Subaru, safety doesn’t end on the production line. Even after you drive off the lot, your safety is still our priority. That’s why every Crosstrek comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. That means even when you’re off exploring, you’re never alone. All the services you need are just a phone call away.

If Subaru and safety go hand-in-hand, why waste your time looking at the Honda HR-V? It should be no surprise that the Crosstrek received higher safety ratings from IIHS and U.S. News & World Report than the Honda HR-V.

Performance


A vehicle’s performance speaks volumes about the brand’s overall philosophy. At Subaru, we believe that life is meant to be lived to the fullest. That’s why we created the Crosstrek – a vehicle that drives effortlessly on all terrains.

Every Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Subaru Boxer® Engine, providing you with maximum control and power behind the wheel. Whether you need to blaze your own path or navigate your neighborhood, the 2017 Crosstrek is equipped to get you there and everywhere in between.

Achieving 30 highway MPG1 and Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) status, the Crosstrek makes it easy to explore more with less impact on the environment.

Wherever the Crosstrek takes you in New England – open your eyes and take it all in. Life doesn’t get much better than this. Now that you can rest assured knowing that the Crosstrek is up for any adventure, you’ll have more time to enjoy the journey.

In a side-by-side comparison, the Crosstrek has a clear advantage over the HR-V in nearly all performance categories. With advantages in engine power and fuel tank capacity, not only will your Subaru take you to places that HR-V cannot, but it will keep you going longer than the Honda competitor – with nearly the same MPG even with an all-wheel drive advantage.

The Crosstrek also has a wider wheelbase and vehicle length for additional stability for all of the adventures ahead. Don’t limit yourself in an HR-V – make the most of your driving experience and maximize the possibilities in a Crosstrek.

Technology


As an adventure-seeker, there is never a dull moment during your journey. Fortunately, the Crosstrek brings you nearly endless entertainment and information options, so that there is never a dull moment in your Subaru. The standard StarlinkTM in-vehicle technology features Pandora®, iHeart® Radio, StitcherTM, AhaTM, HD Radio®, Bluetooth® audio streaming – supporting both IOS and Android devices. So while you’re busy exploring, everything you could possibly need is just a finger swipe away on the LCD touchscreen display.

The Honda HR-V presents a significant downgrade from the Crosstrek when it comes to entertainment. The HR-V contains a simple CD player with AM/FM radio, sacrificing all of the hands-free Bluetooth connectivity and impressive list of apps found in the STARLINK multimedia system. As an explorer, you know that it’s not so much about the destination as it is about the journey – so make sure you can access all of your favorite music and news along the way with the Crosstrek’s unparalleled media offerings.

Interior Space


The Crossover is the perfect vehicle for the everyday explorer, combining the comforts of a car with the capabilities of a truck. As an adventurer, you don’t want to be limited by a lack of versatility of the interior space of your vehicle. Fortunately for you, the Crosstrek has 97.5 cubic feet of interior volume. No matter where you go, what you bring, or who you choose to travel with, there’s plenty of room for everyone to travel comfortably. On the days when it’s just you and the equipment – fold down the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats to open up an impressive 51.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Go ahead - let it all in the Crosstrek so you can go all out!

The Crosstrek and the HR-V have similar interior space dimensions, although the Crosstrek does have more front-seat legroom than its Honda competitor. Despite this fact, think of all the ways in which the HR-V compromises and falls short of the Subaru model. While the space within is comparable, the limitations of where you can go in an HR-V as opposed to a Crosstrek will certainly hinder you while out exploring.
