New Subaru Crosstrek vs Honda HR-V

  • Ultimately, the Subaru Crosstrek begins at a more comfortable starting price, well below $30,000 with plenty of standard features. The Honda HR-V begins at a slightly higher price point, with limited standard features.
  • All trims of the Subaru Crosstrek come available with EyeSight® Driver-Assist Technology such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Pre-Collision Braking. The Honda HR-V offers comparable features through Honda Sensing, but these do not come on the base trim and cost extra.
  • The Subaru STARLINK™ multimedia system of the Crosstrek comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, allowing Newburgh drivers to integrate their smartphone to the infotainment system fully. The HR-V does not offer these applications on base trim levels.
  • If you enjoy the feel of driving stick, the Crosstrek has a standard six-speed manual transmission for more precise gear changes. The Honda HR-V only offers a two speed continuously variable transmission, with clunkier acceleration overall.
  • The Subaru Crosstrek can tow up to 1,500 lbs., with its engine, enabling you to bring small campers and U-Haul trailers, within reason, out to New Paltz. The Honda HR-V does not offer towing capability, with generally hauling inadvisable with this crossover SUV.

New Subaru Crosstrek vs Ford Escape

  • The Subaru Crosstrek comes available with a windshield wiper de-icer, giving you a helping hand against ice and freezing rain in Gardiner. While some brands may offer this feature as an add-on, no compatible component exists on any trim of the Ford Escape.
  • Ford offers an available SYNC3 multimedia system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, but this feature only comes available with the purchase of a higher trim. Meanwhile, the standard STARLINK™ system of the Crosstrek offers full smartphone pairing with these two apps.
  • The Subaru Crosstrek offers these and many other great features for a low starring price, which many families and young drivers can enjoy. The Ford Escape begins over $4,000 more than the Crosstrek and only increases with more conveniences.
  • While the automatic transmissions of the Ford Escape and Subaru Crosstrek offer comparable accelerations, the Escape does not come available with manual transmission.
  • Even without choosing the Crosstrek Hybrid, the Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) gives the engine of the Crosstrek more fuel economy, traveling up to 27mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The Ford Escape travels up to 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with its most robust engine.
