How Does the Subaru Crosstrek Compare to the Honda CR-V?

While both crossover SUVs are similar in terms of design and size, these vehicles differ in a few key places. If you're a Santa Barbara driver looking for a reliable and contemporary family car for drives along the coast, keep reading to learn more about how these two vehicles line up.

How do these two SUVs perform?

A primary difference between the Crosstrek and the CR-V is off-road capability. Both vehicles come with a four-cylinder engine and 1,500 pounds of towing capability. However, the Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive at every trim level, whereas the Honda CR-V comes with front-wheel drive and requires you to opt into all-wheel drive at additional cost.

The Subaru Crosstrek also offers high ground clearance at 8.7 inches, an excellent feature for drivers looking for an off-road-friendly vehicle.

How do the technology features compare?

The Subaru Crosstrek offers more standard features on all trim levels, including Smart Device Integration and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.   Both models come with a touchscreen display and comparable navigation systems. Still, the Crosstrek's touchscreen controls are more practical due to their simple set up, and the voice control on the Subaru is more reliable.
