The 2019 Honda HR-V and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek are two of the most highly sought-after crossover SUVs in the country. Not only are they efficient and off-road-ready, but they're also spacious and decked out in all kinds of handy features.

On this page, we at Ray Price Honda will give you a detailed overview of how these two models stack up against each other when it comes to performance, space, comfort, and technology. Shoppers in East Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Stroudsburg, and Easton should read our Honda HR-V vs. Subaru Crosstrek comparison ahead to see which model is the best fit!

HR-V vs Crosstrek: Performance

Leading the way in the 2019 Honda HR-V is an SOHC i-VTEC® engine that works together with a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). Together, this duo achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG1.

This model can also be outfitted with an intuitive Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. This system constantly monitors the condition of the road underneath you and automatically adjusts in order to give you the best possible grip on the road.

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek also offers an all-wheel drive system. However, you won't have a CVT in this model, which will have a noticeable effect on your fuel economy. With the Crosstrek, you'll achieve an EPA-estimated 27 city/33 highway MPG.

While the 2019 Honda HR-V and the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek offer the same amount of seats, the HR-V goes above and beyond when it comes to comfort and cargo. With nearly three extra inches of rear legroom, the HR-V can accommodate passengers of all shapes and sizes. You'll also have more cargo room to work with in the HR-V.

HR-V vs Crosstrek: Technology

The 2019 Honda HR-V isn't just efficient and spacious, but it's tech-savvy, too. The HR-V boasts a well-rounded suite of Honda Sensing® safety features. With this suite, you'll get…

  • A Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • A Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • A multi-angle rear view camera

Unfortunately, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek doesn't offer a suite of advanced safety features like Honda Sensing®. This model does sport a few advanced safety features including Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. However, you'll have to settle for a regular rear-vision camera and no forward automatic collision-preventing braking features.

2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Subaru Crosstrek: The Verdict

The clear winner in this comparison is the 2019 Honda HR-V with its efficient powertrain, spacious and comfortable interior, and expansive selection of advanced technology features.
