Subaru Crosstrek vs The Competition

If you are in the market for a high-quality crossover SUV to drive in Washington Twp, NJ? If so, you might be considering getting a Subaru Crosstrek, a versatile SUV that is as capable as it is fun. But how does the Crosstrek stack up to other options on the market? How can you be sure that the Crosstrek is the ideal compact SUV for you? One way is to compare the Crosstrek to similar vehicles from other brands. To help you make an informed decision, here is how the Crosstrek, available at Prestige Subaru of Turnersville, NJ, stacks up to two offerings from competitors: the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V.


The Crosstrek comes standard with a 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer® four-cylinder engine that generates 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The Crosstrek engine has a distinct advantage over the engines of the competition. For comparison, the Hyundai Kona has a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that generates 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Honda HR-V has a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is not the only area where the Crosstrek outperforms the competition. While the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V come standard with front-wheel drive, the Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, giving you superb traction on just about any drivable surface in Deptford Twp. The Crosstrek also boasts a highway cruising range of 481.4 miles. This beats the Hyundai Kona's highway cruising range of 435.6 miles and the Honda HR-V's highway cruising range of 448.8 miles.


One thing you might notice about the Crosstrek as soon as you climb in is how roomy it is. With a passenger volume of 100.9 cubic feet, there is plenty of space for up to five passengers to stretch out. The Crosstrek has more room for five passengers than both the Hyundai Kona (94.1 cubic feet) and the Honda HR-V (100.1 cubic feet)

Safety/Technology Features

The Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This suite of safety features includes Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Centering, so you can have plenty of peace of mind as you drive around Sicklerville. The Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V both come with suites of safety features of their own, but their features fall short of the Crosstrek. For example, while the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V both have advanced cruise control features of their own, those features don't come with the Lane Centering feature that the Crosstrek has. Additionally, while all the Crosstrek, Hyundai Kona, and Honda HR-V all have pre-collision braking systems, only the Crosstrek also comes with Pre-Collision Throttle Management. This feature reduces engine power when EyeSight detects an object or vehicle that you are likely to collide with. This significantly reduces the force of the impact and minimizes damage in the event of a collision.

The Verdict

The Subaru Crosstrek is a superb, highly capable crossover SUV. Its excellent qualities are only further highlighted when you compare it to the competition. While the Hyundai Kona and Honda HR-V have positive qualities, they can't compare to the all-around excellence of the Crosstrek. If you think that a Crosstrek might be the ideal SUV for you to drive in Williamstown, NJ, then you should visit Prestige Subaru of Turnersville and take one on a test drive.
