2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs. Its Competition

2020 Subaru Crosstrek
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

When it comes to small crossovers, only the Subaru Crosstrek and Jeep Renegade should be trusted off-roading.

Any Crosstrek model can do it thanks to standard all-wheel drive, while the more expensive Renegade Trailhawk is designed for the trail.

If off-roading isn’t a consideration, the new Mazda CX-30 is larger and roomier than the CX-3, and has premium appointments in a stylish urban design.

Another new entry is the Hyundai Kona, designed with all kinds of black cladding that suggest the cute ute can off-road.

We wouldn’t, but the well-equipped Kona is stylish inside and out.

The Honda HR-V is aging, but has the best interior versatility in the class with rear seats that can flip up for taller cargo items (or dogs) and can also fold flat for some of the best cargo space in the small class.

The Nissan Rogue Sport has been a popular choice for its overall value, which might be more important than the standout features that it lacks.
