Subaru 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.
