Of course, the subcompact crossover SUV segment is a crowded one, so the Crosstrek is not without its rivals. With that in mind, we pitted the Crosstrek against some of its top competitors and found that its opponents couldn't quite keep up.


Subaru Crosstrek vs. Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona puts up a good fight, but we found that the Subaru Crosstrek is a better pick if you do any amount of off-roading or adventuring. The Crosstrek has 8.7 inches of ground clearance, beating the Kona's 6.7 inches and cementing itself as the better off-road companion as the added height makes it easier for you to clear obstacles and rough terrain.

The Crosstrek also has superior max cargo space, offering up to 55.3 cubic feet of storage against the Kona's 45.8 cubic feet. That will make a big difference when loading up the car with camping gear, clearing a spot for a dog crate, or picking up unusual pieces of furniture at a yard sale.

Passengers will also appreciate the Crosstrek for its extra inches of legroom in both the rear and front seats. Rear passengers in the Kona may find things a little cramped.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. Mazda CX-3

If you need a vehicle with plenty of interior space for gear and passengers, the Crosstrek has the Mazda CX-3 soundly beaten. The Crosstrek boasts 13.3 inches more passenger volume, 10.8 cubic feet more max cargo space, 8.4 cubic feet more space behind the second row, as well as more head- and legroom in the front and rear seats.

You'll also want to consider the Crosstrek if you plan to do any towing. The Crosstrek has a towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds, but the CX-3 focuses more on agility than strength.


Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V is a formidable opponent, but we're confident in the Subaru Crosstrek's abilities. All-wheel drive is a popular feature for Waterbury and Norwalk drivers because it offers all-weather capability and improved traction.

Both models offer AWD, but it's standard on the Crosstrek and optional on the HR-V. The Crosstrek was designed to accommodate its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, so you can expect sophistication and efficiency in addition to better performance around corners and on slippery roads.

On the road, you'll notice that the Crosstrek is quieter and smoother than the HR-V thanks in part to its refined suspension and sound-deadening interior features. The Crosstrek also offers more ground clearance and towing power, making it a much better option if you need a vehicle that can handle itself on the way to that tough-to-reach camping spot and carry everything you need.
