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.
