Subaru Crosstrek vs Jeep Renegade

Safety

You’re going to love where the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek takes you, and most importantly that it will get you there safely. While you’re focused on the road ahead, your Crosstrek will have your back with a standard rear-vision camera. That means no matter which road you choose, be it a mountain ascent, a sandy beach, or your way to work – your Subaru will be looking out for you.

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 Jeep Renegade? With features like standard power side mirrors, fog lights and all-wheel drive control, it’s clear that the Crosstrek is the safest choice for the ambitious driver.

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 Renegade in nearly all performance categories. With major advantages in horsepower, torque, and fuel tank capacity, not only will your Subaru take you to places that Renegade cannot, but it will keep you going longer than the Jeep competitor – with nearly the same MPG even with an all-wheel drive advantage.

The Crosstrek also has a longer wheelbase and vehicle length for additional stability for all of the adventures ahead. Don’t limit yourself in a Renegade – 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.

While the Jeep Renegade’s entertainment system appears similar to the Crosstrek’s on the surface, the touch screen interface is limited in comparison. The Renegade’s Bluetooth connectivity excludes iPhone mobile devices, which likely prevents either you or your fellow explorers from using the system. The Renegade’s touch screen is smaller than the Crosstrek’s, and also lacks LCD illumination and the plethora of apps that come standard in every Subaru Crosstrek. Why settle for anything less than the Crosstrek’s STARLINK multimedia system, which will keep you entertained during the journey ahead without compatibility issues?

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 Renegade have similar interior space dimensions, although the Crosstrek does have more legroom and cargo volume than the Jeep competitor. Despite this fact, think of all the ways in which the Renegade compromises and falls short of the Subaru model. While the space within is comparable, the limitations of where you can go in a Renegade as opposed to a Crosstrek will certainly hinder you while out exploring.
