Compare The Subaru Crosstrek vs The Competition in Orange, VA

Crosstrek vs Honda HR-V

How Does the Subaru Crosstrek Stack Up Against the Honda Competition?

The road to a new SUV near Charlottesville can take you across a gamut of compass points, from Culpeper, out to Fredericksburg and beyond. But here at Reynolds Subaru, we don't think you should have to take the road less traveled. In fact, you'll find a capable sport utility a world apart from its rivals here in Orange, VA, in the hard-charging Subaru Crosstrek compact. In a grudge match with one of its flagship competitors, the Honda HR-V, we're sure you'll see Crosstrek takes Honda off the map.


  • Right into the bush, both Subaru Crosstrek and Honda HR-V showcase comparable fuel economies to go the extra mile. Subaru offers up to 33 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city, close to that of Honda, at 34 mpg and 28 mpg highway/city respectively.
  • Subaru Crosstrek pulls ahead of Honda HR-V with its 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine, putting out 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of pulling panache to Honda's 1.8-liter, in-line 4-cylinder delivering but 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet torque. That means Crosstrek's more prepared for the off-road, whether that means trekking through the wilderness or hauling cargo.
  • Plus, you'll find Subaru Crosstrek a model of spending less time at the pump and more time adventuring. Crosstrek offers a capacious 16.6-gallon fuel tank, where Honda HR-V lags with 13.2 gallons.

Technology and Safety

  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard in the Crosstrek base and higher trims, making ascending uneven terrain and cutting through adverse weather a breeze. Honda offers all-wheel drive, but it's optional in the HR-V base and up.
  • On the face of it, both Crosstrek and HR-V proffer a steady ride. Crosstrek's Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Traction Control System compares favorably to Honda HR-V's Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control.
  • But it's Subaru Crosstrek that rolls out the security options you need for unrivaled peace of mind. Crosstrek's available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology builds in such top-tier features as Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist, alongside visibility curios like High Beam Assist and environment-conscious elements like Blind-Spot Detection/Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Reverse Automatic Braking. Honda HR-V offers only its Honda LaneWatch™ visual aid.
  • What's more, the entertainment and connectivity perks to make your trip abound in Crosstrek, with your choice of a base-standard STARLINK™ 6.5-inch Multimedia system, upper-trim STARLINK™ 8.0-inch Multimedia Plus system, or optional STARLINK™ 8.0-inch Multimedia Navigation system in Crosstrek's top trim. Honda allows but a choice between a 5-inch color LCD in its base, flanked by a 7-inch, high-resolution Display Audio touchscreen in higher trims and topped off in Honda EX-L by a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic.

Available Special Options and Trim Levels

  • There are packages aplenty when you opt for a Subaru Crosstrek, whether in 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, or the 2.0i Limited line crown. These range from combinations like a Lineartronic® CVT transmission, power tilt/sliding moonroof, and Blind-Spot Detection/Rear Cross-Traffic Alert to four variations on bundles with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, navigation, a Harman Kardon audio system, and more. Honda offers the same number of trims, HR-V LX, EX, and EX-L Navi, but its accessories remain individually on demand or with investment in higher trims.
