The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek vs. the 2017 Honda CR-V

If you're looking for a vehicle that offers the capabilities and versatility of an SUV, but want a vehicle with a lower profile and smaller footprint, consider the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek. Sure, there are other compact SUVs out there, such as the Honda CR-V, but they don't come close to offering the capabilities or value that the Crosstrek delivers. To begin, the Crosstrek is offered at a more competitive price than the Honda CR-V, so right out of the gate, you're getting more value. When you consider that the Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru's exclusive Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive - a feature you'll pay extra for on a CR-V, the value just increases. The 2017 Crosstrek will be the winner with taller drivers and passengers, thanks to the superior head and legroom in the front seat. Narrower than the CR-V, the Crosstrek's small size makes it easy to maneuver and park; however, even with its compact size, the raised ride height offers additional ground clearance that gives the Crosstrek a leg-up on the CR-V when approaching rocky terrain or any uneven roads.

You won't find standard roof rails on a CR-V - but you will on the Crosstrek! That means you'll have even more space on top to stash the gear you need for your next adventure, and the 60/40-split fold-down rear seats give you lots of options for creating as much as 51.9 cubic feet of cargo space. The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek not only offers ample cargo space and impressive capabilities but does it all with the SUBARU BOXER® engine that delivers a fuel-efficient *33 mpg highway. The Crosstrek also offers a collection of high-tech safety features through the Subaru-exclusive EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology; these advanced safety features helped the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek earn a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. No matter how you stack it, the Crosstrek outperforms the CR-V in almost every area, and we think you'll agree it's the best compact SUV for the money.
