Subaru 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.
