Subaru Crosstrek takes on the Competition

Battle of Compact SUVs - Explore How the New Subaru Crosstrek Compares to its Biggest Rivals

Within the extremely crowded and competitive compact-SUV segment of the market, there indeed are several standout models. While it may initially seem like a tough decision with so many attractive options out there, many shoppers are quickly realizing that the new 2019 Subaru Crosstrek certainly holds an edge on many of its rivals. Here at MetroWest Subaru, tons of our customers living in Natick, Boston, Norwood and Belmont, MA. have purchased the new Crosstrek model instead of the competition because of just how feature-filled this vehicle truly is.

So prior to a purchase, we strongly encourage you to carefully consider just how much the latest generation of the Subaru Crosstrek has to offer. Compared to mainstream rivals such as the Honda HR-V and the Mazda CX-5, you will see for yourself that the Crosstrek pulls miles ahead in this race!

2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs. 2019 Honda HR-V

  • Like nearly every Subaru model, the 2019 Crosstrek comes equipped with their praised Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System as standard equipment for no extra cost at all. On the other hand, the 2019 Honda HR-V does have available all-wheel drive, except it costs thousands more from your savings for this add-on.
  • Comparing engines under the hood, the new and improved Crosstrek model offers both more horsepower as well as more torque than the competing HR-V model. You'll certainly notice this difference in power when you are on the highways in Natick, Boston, Belmont, Norwood and beyond.
  • For all of your exciting adventures found off of the beaten path, the new Subaru Crosstrek has a whopping 8.7 inches of ground clearance, dramatically more than what the new Honda HR-V has. Choose Subaru if you wish to bottom out as infrequently as possible.
  • Those that prioritize safety will surely also be drawn to the Crosstrek, which earned a 2018 Top Safety Pick Award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Unfortunately for Honda, the latest HR-V model was unable to win this award for their safety features and technology.


2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs. 2019 Mazda CX-5

  • First thing's first- let's talk price tags. The 2019 Crosstrek model remains very affordable, with a competitive price tag that begins just under the attractive $22,000 mark. In stark contrast, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 begins with a notably more expensive price point just below $25,000, and that's without plenty of features that the Crosstrek possesses too.
  • Speaking of features that the Crosstrek has that the CX-5 model does not, Subaru generously included both Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto integration at the base trim level for a seamless smartphone connection. The new Mazda CX-5 model only offers these features as available, and quite expensive, extra equipment for buyers.
  • If you appreciate increased space for your cargo as well as your passengers, then choose the new Crosstrek. It offers more headroom, more legroom, far more cargo space, and more overall passenger volume than the new Mazda CX-5 does. Sit back and relax inside the new Subaru Crosstrek.
  • In regard to off-road abilities, the rugged Subaru Crosstrek is far more adventure-ready than the more fragile CX-5 model. It's a similar story to the HR-V, as the new Crosstrek has better ground clearance than the Mazda CX-5. And also likewise, the Subaru Crosstrek comes equipped with AWD while Mazda will make you pay extra.
