Check out a comparison of the models down below to learn why the Subaru Crosstrek is out preferred crossover SUV for the Plano commute.


Subaru Crosstrek vs Toyota RAV4

  • Both SUV models are equipped with one of two engine options, including an efficient hybrid option that saves time at the gas pump. The Subaru Crosstrek's hybrid engine estimates a range of 90 miles on one electric charge, making it ideal for short commutes to and from work.
  • The Crosstrek is standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, ensuring that you can handle off-road travels with improved traction control and handling. The Toyota RAV4 offers all-wheel drive, but you'll need to pay extra for it.
  • While both offer seating for five and cozy luxuries that everyone can enjoy with ease, the Subaru Crosstrek does so with more passenger room than the Toyota RAV4. You can stretch out and enjoy the ride when you sit in the Subaru.
  • Heated front seats are standard starting with the Crosstrek Premium trim, and while the Toyota RAV4 also offers heated front seats on a similar trim level, you'll need to pay a lot more to unlock it. The base Toyota trim option costs nearly $4,000 more than the second Crosstrek trim.
  • An eight-inch touchscreen, with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration for a seamless listening experience, is standard with the Crosstrek Limited trim. You'll need to pay $6,000 more to find the same capability in the Toyota RAV4 model.
  • While both models offer driver-assistance packages that help you drive with confidence and peace of mind, only the Subaru Crosstrek offers a Reverse Automatic Braking feature that will apply the brakes for you. Toyota doesn't feature anything similar.

Subaru Crosstrek vs Mazda CX-5

  • The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a powerful engine option that provides all the speed and capability you'll need. However, the lineup doesn't offer a hybrid engine option, which you will find with the Crosstrek. Efficiency is key if you want to spend less time at the gas pump.
  • The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard to the Crosstrek lineup, allowing you to go wherever you want to go with improved traction control and handling. You'll need to pay more for the all-wheel drive feature on the Mazda CX-5.
  • Love the ability to handle some trail riding? The Subaru Crosstrek offers 8.7-inches of ground clearance, while the Mazda CX-5 limits where you can go with 7.5-inches.
  • Seating for five is found within both the Subaru Crosstrek and Mazda CX-5, so you won't have to worry about who can come along. However, the Crosstrek provides more front-row headroom and legroom than the Mazda SUV, allowing for a bit more comfort.
  • Whether you enjoy the Subaru STARLINK® Multimedia system or the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system, you'll find easy-to-control touchscreen capability and Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio setup. Only the Crosstrek comes standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™; you'll need to upgrade the Mazda CX-5 to find the same features.
  • The Subaru Crosstrek makes backing up easier with the available Reverse Automatic Braking, so you can have some peace of mind on busy city streets. Mazda doesn't offer this feature.

Subaru Crosstrek vs Honda HR-V

  • The Crosstrek comes standard with a 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder that delivers 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque, while the Honda HR-V comes up short with a 1.8-liter engine that only outputs 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque.
  • The Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive for tricky road conditions or outdoor adventures. Honda offers its all-wheel drive system, but you'll need to pay more to unlock it.
  • When you equip all-wheel drive on the Honda HR-V, you'll find less ground clearance than even the two-wheel drive model at 6.7-inches. Subaru is more prepared for obstacles in its way with an impressive 8.7-inches of ground clearance.
  • Subaru's lineup offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights that curve with the road ahead of you as you drive at night. Honda doesn't feature this at all in its lineup.
  • Passengers will be a bit more comfortable inside the Subaru Crosstrek as it offers up to 100.9 cubic feet of passenger space to stretch out. The Honda HR-V makes things a bit more cramped with just over 100 cubic feet.
  • The Crosstrek is standard with a 6.5-inch touchscreen along with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration for a seamless music-listening experience from your favorite streaming apps. The Honda HR-V is not standard with these features, so you'll need to pay more to unlock them.
  • With available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the Crosstrek ensures you have peace of mind with features like lane-keeping assist and pre-collision braking. Honda offers similar features through Honda Sensing®, but not with upgrading from the base trim to the EX trim.
