Compare the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek to the Competition at MetroWest Subaru in Natick, MA

When shopping for that new compact crossover SUV, it can be challenging to narrow it down to the perfect model. There are plenty of options around the Boston area that are perfectly suited to winter roads and summer cruising. However, if you want something that takes your driving experience to the next level, you won't find better than the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek. With this new Subaru SUV, you'll find a surefire way of enjoying plenty of standard equipment and available amenities on your drive, whether it's your morning commute or a weekend getaway.

So before you decided on a purchase, we strongly encourage you to carefully consider just how much the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek has to offer drivers in Norwood. Compared to mainstream rivals like the Honda HR-V and the Mazda CX-5, you will see for yourself that the Crosstrek pulls ahead as the premier option for Boston drivers!

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda HR-V

  • Like almost every Subaru model around the Belmont, MA area, the 2021 Crosstrek comes standard with their iconic Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System for no extra cost at all, while also providing plenty of control and capability for your adventures. On the other hand, the 2021 Honda HR-V does have available all-wheel drive, except it costs thousands more from your savings. Subaru believes that all-wheel drive should be standard, allowing you to go just about anywhere.
  • When you take a look underneath the hood, you'll find that the new Crosstrek SUV 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 around 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. Go with the Subaru Crosstrek if you want the ability to go wherever you want with ease.
  • While both models are viewed as safe, reliable models that provide confidence for busy Boston highways, only the Subaru Crosstrek offers peace of mind beginning with the base model. Subaru's EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is available from the start, including adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure with sway warning features. The Honda HR-V isn't standard with Honda Sensing®, meaning you need to upgrade to have the same conveniences.


Subaru Crosstrek vs. Mazda CX-5

  • First thing's first- let's talk price tags. The 2021 Crosstrek model remains very affordable, with a competitive price tag that begins just above the attractive $22,000 mark. In stark contrast, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 begins with a notably more expensive price point just above $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.
  • Both models are well-equipped to keep you cozy and comfortable while ensuring that you have the cargo room for your outdoor activities with all of your camping gear. However, front-row passengers in the Subaru Crosstrek will enjoy more legroom and headroom than passengers in the front of the Mazda CX-5.
  • Regarding the off-road abilities, the rugged Subaru Crosstrek is far more adventure-ready than the luxurious 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 for the same capability.
