2017 Subaru Crosstrek vs. Its Competition

2017 Subaru Crosstrek
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Subaru Crosstrek is in its element when it's up against other crossovers.

Compared to the Outlander Sport, it is downright luxurious, with sturdier switches, buttons, and better refinement.

The Mini Cooper Countryman is certainly more stylish with a nicer interior, but it's also exponentially more expensive.

The Honda HR-V is an interesting compare, simply because we like its versatility and cargo management system.

The Crosstrek is a little bigger and a little tougher.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Renegade feels more suited toward off-road duty, but its quirky style is wearing fast.

The Jeep Compass is up for a redesign and it's long overdue, but it could make a good budget choice.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.
Think of the 2017 Honda HR-V as a Fit with all-wheel drive and a little more headroom. It's not as fun as it could be, but it makes a lot of sense.
The 2017 Jeep Renegade is the smallest Jeep you can buy, appealing both to commuters and off-roaders, but its design can outshine its performance.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an attractive option for budget buyers looking for a capable crossover, but doesn't come without compromises.
The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
