Compact Crossover Challenge:

See how our Subaru Crosstrek stacks up against the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, and Jeep Renegade with this competitive feature analysis from Anchor Subaru - Your local North Smithfield Subaru dealer serving Providence, Johnston, Cranston, Cumberland, RI and Attleboro, MA


Subaru Crosstrek versus Honda HR-V

  • Technology: Technology is increasingly becoming a defining factor for Rhode Island drivers who're shopping for new vehicles. Fortunately, technology has always been one of Subaru's strong suit, as evidenced by the  7-inch SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia infotainment system equipped to the new Subaru Crosstrek. With a crisp display and easy-to-used touchscreen controls, it easily beats the Honda HR-V's 5-inch infotainment system in terms of overall usability on the road.
  • Ground Clearance: If you lead an active lifestyle as many drivers do in North Smithfield, Providence, Cranston, Cumberland, Johnston, RI and Attleboro, MA, then you take every opportunity to get out and get off the beaten path. With 8.7-inches of ground clearance, the Subaru Crosstrek is well-equipped to help you get out to your favorite hiking, camping, and fishing spots without scraping your undercarriage along the way. Unfortunately, the Honda HR-V is much less capable in that regard, offering only a meager 6.7 inches of ground clearance.
  • All-Wheel Drive: Winter can be rough here in New England, with plenty of ice and snow to snarl up every day commutes and make roadways nearly impassable to two-wheel drive cars. Fortunately, the Subaru Crosstrek comes with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel drive, making it adept at traveling on slippery surfaces. As for the Honda HR-V, all-wheel drive is available, but you'll have to pay more money to get your hands on it.

Subaru Crosstrek versus Jeep Renegade

  • Bluetooth: Want to stay connected on the road? The Subaru Crosstrek offers standard Bluetooth connectivity with its SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia infotainment system. Unfortunately for those interested in the Jeep Renegade, Bluetooth compatibility isn't standard, meaning they'll have to shell out more money to get it.
  • Fuel Grade: Both the Subaru Crosstrek and Jeep Renegade boast comparable fuel economy figures, with a difference of just one mile per gallon between them in both city and highway driving. However, the Subaru Crosstrek does just fine on regular unleaded fuel, whereas Jeep recommends you only use premium unleaded fuel with the Renegade. So, while both vehicles will go roughly the same distance between trip to the pump, Subaru Crosstrek drivers will undoubtedly save a bit more in the long run.
  • Crash Test Ratings: For many drivers here in North Smithfield, and nearby Providence, Cranston, Johnston, Cumberland, RI and Attleboro, MA, safety is of paramount importance when considering a new vehicle. Fortunately, Subaru's pedigree for safety is practically unrivaled, and the Subaru Crosstrek is a perfect testament to that. With an overall crash test safety rating of five stars from the Nation Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Subaru Crosstrek easily bests the Jeep Renegade, which only earned a four-star crash test rating in 2017.



Subaru Crosstrek versus Mazda CX-3

  • Cargo Capacity: As we mentioned before, active lifestyles come naturally to many drivers here in Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts. However, if you want to get out and enjoy the best that nature has to offer, you'll need to bring a lot of stuff along with you. Fortunately, with its rear 60/40 split seating folded down, the Subaru Crosstrek offers up to 51.9 cubic-feet of cargo space, making it easy to load up with coolers, tents, skis, and whatever else you might need on the road or on the trail. By comparison, the Mazda CX-3 only manages 42.3 cubic-feet of cargo space, meaning it'll be harder to fit all the stuff you want and need.
  • Towing Capacity: Even if you manage to fill the Subaru Crosstrek's capacious cargo area to the brim, you'll still have the opportunity to haul more stuff. With a towing capacity rated at up to 1,500 pounds, you can easily hitch up a small trailer and head out. On the other hand, the Mazda CX-3 doesn't have a tow hitch available, meaning that once you've filled up its cargo space, you'll be out of luck.
  • Remote Services: Ever lock your keys in your car? If so, then you know there's almost nothing more embarrassing or frustrating. Fortunately, with the available SUBARU STARLINK™ Safety And Security package on the Subaru Crosstrek, you'll be able to remotely lock and unlock your vehicle from the MySubaru app on your phone. Unfortunately, comparable features simply aren't available on the Mazda CX-3.
