2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek vs. 2015 Jeep Renegade

The 2015 lineup of affordable compact SUVs has some great options for today's buyer. With so many vehicles to choose from, making a decision can be a bit difficult. But at Prestige Subaru, your local Turnersville, Cherry Hill, and Mount Laurel Subaru dealership, we want to make the shopping process a little bit easier for you. That's why we provide vehicle comparisons like this one between the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek and the Jeep Renegade. 

Crosstrek vs. Renegade Engine & Efficiency

 The 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek offers a powerful 2.0-Liter DOHC aluminum alloy 16-valve horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER engine with Dual Active Valve Control System. This engine produces up to 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The vehicle is also available with a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters. 

In addition to the conventional engine, the XV Crosstrek is also offered with a Permanent magnet AC synchronous electric motor and a Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) traction battery. This engine is paired with a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission with 6-speed manual mode and paddle shifters. All models of the Subaru XV Crosstrek come standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Traction Control System, and Vehicle Dynamics Control. 

The 2015 Jeep Renegade actually offers two engine options-a 1.4 Liter I4 MultiAir turbo engine and a 2.4 Liter I4 MultiAir engine. These are paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission. 

The biggest difference between the two vehicles in terms of engine and capability is in their efficiency and fuel tank size. The 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek gets a maximum of 31 MPG highway, which is the same as both engine options in the Renegade. The XV Crosstrek, however, is also offered in a Hybrid model, which gets a 34 MPG highway. The vehicle also has a larger fuel tank at 15.9 gallons compared to the 12.7 gallon tank offered in the Renegade. 

Subaru XV Crosstrek vs. Jeep Renegade Technology

The 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek comes standard with the STARLINK 6.2-inch high-resolution touch-screen HD Radio audio system with STARLINK smartphone integration, single-disc CD player, 4 speakers, USB port/iPod control, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free phone connectivity. The vehicle also offers an upgraded option-a voice activated 7-inch high-resolution touch-screen HD Radio premium audio system with STARLINK smartphone integration, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, single-disc CD player, 6 speakers, USB port/iPod control, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free phone connectivity, as well as available navigation system with NavTraffic and NavWeather. 

On the other hand, the 2015 Jeep Renegade has quite a bit less to offer in terms of standard features. The Renegade comes standard with a 4 speaker Radio 3.0 AM/FM with a USB and auxiliary audio input. The vehicle also offers a maximum 5.0 inch touch screen display with an optional 9 amplified speakers with subwoofer, HD radio and integrated voice command with Bluetooth, as well as navigation and SiriusXM Satellite radio, but you'll have to upgrade from the base model which is the most affordable. The vehicle also doesn't offer a standard rearview camera, which is a standard feature on the XV Crosstrek.
