2021 Subaru Crosstrek vs. Its Competition

2021 Subaru Crosstrek
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Crosstrek is a small crossover that competes with a wide range of utility vehicles.

The Honda HR-V is practical and spacious, but suited best for around town.

The Kia Seltos is a new crossover with good space and a better price.

The Mazda CX-30 is the most fun to drive of the bunch, but doesn’t pretend to have off-road-ready hardware.

The Jeep Renegade veers in the opposite direction; it’s hugely capable, but also expensive.

The Hyundai Kona is practical and good-looking, although its top-tier turbo powertrain is saddled with a troublesome transmission.
