Crosstrek vs Honda HR-V

The New 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is Made for Our Northern Virginia Locale -- Discover How it Fares Against the Honda Competition Right Here in Orange, VA!

Subcompact SUVs and their crossover cousins are becoming all the rage today as devotees of the mid-size sedan look for options just as comfortable and reliable, but with all the utility that modern life demands. What's more, there's often one of the former for every one of the latter here in our neck of the Virginia woods. But none are quite as capable for the off-road, reliable, safe, well-equipped, or even as customizable as the new Subaru Crosstrek, and we at Reynolds Subaru have made it easy to compare our automaker's new SUV, already a hit in the Subaru line, to other models here in the Orange area. See how the new Crosstrek matches up against one of its closest and fiercest rivals, the new 2018 Honda HR-V, and we're sure you'll agree: ours pulls ahead in all the right areas. When it's time for a tour, up close and in-person, be sure to visit us here at our Madison Rd. showroom, too. We'll be happy to take you for a ride!

Power and Performance

  • For one, it's more energetic, building a spirited 152-horsepower, 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER flat-four engine putting out 145 pound-feet of torque. The new HR-V incorporates an SOHC i-VTEC inline-four capable of only 141-horsepower and 127 pound-feet.
  • Next, it's better prepared for the extra mile off-grid from the Charlottesville area, offering standard, permanent, and always-on Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for a professional command of turning and pulling power. Honda's Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System is only optional, and only with an available CVT transmission.
  • Thirdly, Active Torque Vectoring comes standard, providing confident cornering capabilities. There's nothing comparable under the hood of 2018 HR-V.
  • A new 2018 Crosstrek even makes possible towing up to 1,500 pounds maximum. It's Honda challenger's not rated for towing.

Technology and Safety

  • A 6.5-inch SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia infotainment system comes standard in the Crosstrek base model, putting control of myriad entertainment, connectivity, and vehicle functions at your fingertips. HR-V offers only a 5-inch color LCD in its base.
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, letting you interface with your compatible smartphone from the SUV's display. Neither is offered in HR-V.
  • What's more, you'll find 8.0-inch STARLINK Multimedia Plus and Multimedia Navigation variants at higher trims. Honda offers only a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen in its upper levels.
  • EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, with Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist, comes available in Crosstrek 2.0i Premium and later, offering wraparound situational awareness for that trip to Culpeper you've been planning. The Honda Sensing technology suite, on the other hand, with the automaker's own driver-assist tech, is nowhere to be found in the line. Nor is Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, otherwise a standard in Crosstrek 2.0i Limited.

Available Trim Levels and Special Options

  • A new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek comes in a trifecta of trims from which to choose: base 2.0i, midrange 2.0i Premium, and the luxurious 2.0i Limited. The new 2018 Honda HRV's trim lineup is comparable, including LX, EX, and EX-L Navi.
  • However, ours is all-new for 2018, built on a new platform, more refined, safer, and with several new tech standards and driver-assist features -- the latest, freshest, and most cutting-edge Crosstrek yet. Theirs offers only a new color and a few new wheel designs from which to choose.
  • Lastly, available package options abound, bringing together safety and driver-assist features, amenities, and more. Plus, a host of individual installation options are available. Honda makes their add-ons available only individually.

Crosstrek vs Toyota C-HR

Does 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Have What It Takes to Best the 2018 Toyota C-HR? Find Out Here at Reynolds Subaru!

Living the active urban Charlottesville lifestyle with an eye on that occasional off-grid getaway to hotspots like Culpeper demands more than your average subcompact SUV. One should offer performance for the everyday and all-terrain alike, with the safety features to back it up and the advanced tech, amenities, and creature comforts to keep it ahead of any pack of rivals. For all these and more, look no further than the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Against it, even the latest upstarts in the small SUV segment like the all-new 2018 Toyota C-HR, the self-styled  "coupe high-rider," find it difficult to make the same grade. So, where and how does the new Crosstrek pull ahead? See for yourself right here, then be sure to stop by and visit us at Reynolds Subaru for a tour of the real thing, up close and in-person!

Power and Performance

  • It offers Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard across the lineup, delivering the reliable handling over diverse terrain Subaru enthusiasts put at the top of their list of favorite features. AWD isn't offered in the new C-HR -- not even as an option.
  • A spirited 2.0-liter, four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine comes standard. It's designed horizontally opposed to integrate seamlessly with the high-strength steel construction of the all-new Subaru Global Platform and Symmetrical AWD, and atop a longer wheelbase than C-HR and tracks wider both front and rear. The result is balanced poise, both on the road and off the trail. Toyota's standard 2.0-liter inline-four can't make the same claim to fame.
  • It's a torquier and more powerful ride than C-HR, too, putting out 152 horsepower to the latter's 145 and 145 pound-feet to its 139. That's enough charge for any northern VA road trip.
  • A max towing capacity of 1,500 pounds makes taking along, say, a pop-up tent camper and some light camping gear a matter of course. Toyota doesn't rate for or recommend towing with C-HR.

Technology and Safety

  • Three SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia touchscreen infotainment system options present to keep you connected and in touch along the way: a 6.5-inch, an upgrade to 8.0 inches, and an 8.0-inch variant with built-in navigation and voice-activated controls. C-HR offers but one 7-inch Display Audio system and no navigation option.
  • Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it easy to extend your smartphone's features to the dash. C-HR offers neither.
  • Both models might offer comparable safety and driver-assist systems -- ours, with Subaru EyeSight®, and Toyota, with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). Both might also earn ratings of five stars overall from the NHTSA. However, it's our Subaru SUV that garners a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest possible. C-HR isn't rated by the IIHS.
  • Furthermore, ours offers a wheel slip-reducing X-MODE® to maintain maneuvering confidence over slick surfaces. C-HR might offer the rear-wheel pushing power of a standard Limited-Slip Differential, but then again -- so does Crosstrek.
  • We even offer Active Torque Vectoring, providing cornering precision for peace of mind. C-HR doesn't offer a comparable feature.

Available Trim Levels and Special Options

  • Choose to purchase or lease a new Subaru Crosstrek here in Orange, VA, and you can expect to find more options from which to choose, in trims from base 2.0i and midrange 2.0i Premium to the luxurious 2.0i Limited. CH-R offers only two: XLE and XLE Premium.
  • Package options aplenty are available, too, from those that bring together safety and driver assistance tech to those with amenities and more. Likewise, numerous individual components can be installed. Toyota makes available their add-ons only individually.

Crosstrek vs Jeep Renegade

"Confidence in Motion" or "Go Anywhere, Do Anything"? The New 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Takes on the Jeep Competition Here in Orange, VA

One, ours, walks the thick line between the versatility of a hatchback and the off-road abilities of an SUV. The other, the stroke of an automaker much-admired like ours for its decades of all-terrain tradition. Both, we think you'll agree, are seasoned off-road travelers, capable and expertly equipped for the journey. But between the all-new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and its latest 2018 Jeep Renegade rival, which pulls ahead? At the end of the hike, it's ours that outpaces on the trail. Learn how and where right here on the Web, then set your own course for an exciting test drive at Reynolds Subaru!

Power and Performance

  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel drive comes standard from the 2018 Crosstrek base to its top trim. It's permanent, always-on, and offers the grip over diverse terrain and through rough weather that both small SUV enthusiasts and die-hard fans of the Subaru name crave. 2018 Renegade offers a choice among three 4x4systems, but they're all options only, and all throughout the lineup until the top-tier Trailhawk, where it'll cost you.
  • A limited-slip differential comes standard to make the most of the turning and pushing power of the rear wheels, giving you the power to tack through the thick of it. The new Renegade doesn't offer this feature in its base.
  • You can look forward to better fuel economy by EPA estimates, up 27 mpg in a city like Charlottesville and 33 mpg down the highway to Culpeper when outfitted with a Lineartronic® CVT. We even offer a larger 16.6-gallon fuel tank to boot. Jeep makes possible only a respective 24 mpg and 31 mpg, and on a 12.7-gallon tank.
  • Turning between curbs, our tight 35.4-foot radius means better maneuverability in cramped spaces. Renegade's is a less nimble 36.3 feet.
  • You can tow up to 1,500 pounds from the get-go. That's plenty for light gear like a pop-up tent camper. You can tow up to 2,000 pounds in the Renegade, but it requires upgrade to a 2.4-liter engine. You'll only find it standard in Renegade Limited -- the top of the line.

Technology and Safety

  • SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia touchscreen infotainment system choices range from a 6.5-inch model in the base and an upgrade to 8.0 inches at the midrange to an 8.0-inch variant incorporating navigation and voice-activated controls in higher trims. Plus, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard to let you control your smartphone's features in-dash. Renegade offers three Uconnect systems measuring 5-, 7-, and 8.4 inches with similar compatibilities and capabilities.
  • Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is available for driveway-to-highway peace of mind. Renegade optionally builds in similar lane keeping and departure warning and pre-collision braking offerings, but, unlike with our Subaru, you won't find adaptive cruise control.
  • The new Crosstrek earns five stars overall from the NHTSA for withstanding crash testing as well as a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with a superior front crash prevention rating. Renegade is not nearly as well rated, earning only four stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. And from the IIHS, it garners only acceptable driver-side ratings, isn't rated on its passenger side, offers only the step-down advanced front crash prevention, has poorly rated headlights, and marginally rated child seat anchors.

Available Trim Levels and Special Options

  • Our 2.0i, 2.0i Premium, and 2.0i Limited trims join us in their second generation, just about five years old and already considered an accomplished member of the Subaru SUV line. Renegade is a similarly new compact SUV, appearing in trims from Sport, Upland, and Latitude to Altitude, Limited, and Trailhawk.
  • Subaru offers numerous safety and driver assistance tech and amenities packages to customize your ride. Many can be installed individually to boot. Jeep likewise offers custom options for tech, comfort, interior, safety, towing, and more.
