2023 Honda HR-V vs. 2022 Subaru Crosstrek: Compare Crossovers

If you want a compact utility vehicle with rugged cues, a little more ride height, and an affordable price—yet with a profile that’s ultimately more carlike than trucklike—the Subaru Outback and Honda HR-V are two great contenders.

The Subaru Crosstrek arrived a decade ago, following the success of the Outback Sport. It delivered the same formula, with even more rugged cladding and an elevated ride height versus the related Impreza compact hatchback. Honda’s crossover SUVs keep growing in size, with the CR-V compact crossover growing larger in every generation. That’s left space below, for a grown-up 2023 Honda HR-V that’s now right-sized for small-family use, and about the size that the CR-V was prior to 2017.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The Honda HR-V shows that family life can be charming, even on a budget. The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek flexes safety and traction more than it does power.
