Premier Honda invites motorists shopping for a new crossover to put the 2019 Honda HR-V to the test. Here, we've compiled a comparison review, putting the new HR-V against a worthy competitor, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek.
As part of the Honda SUV lineup that's now been named the Best SUV Brand by U.S. News & World Report** four years straight, the 2019 HR-V is winning praise from publications and drivers alike. This subcompact crossover is big on versatility and value, as it boasts one of the roomiest and most flexible cabins in its segment, along with superb standard features and a low starting price.
When making a significant buying decision like a new crossover, it's important to consider all of your options. Let's see how Honda's new HR-V compares to the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek in terms of pricing, usability, efficiency and other factors that often matter most to buyers.
Comparing base trims, the 2019 Honda HR-V LX boasts a starting MSRP that's more than $1,000 below that of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i model. One difference is that only the HR-V comes standard with a CVT or automatic shifting, and only the Crosstrek features standard all-wheel drive (AWD). Even when comparably equipped with Honda's Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ added and the Crosstrek's standard 6-speed manual transmission replaced with a CVT, the Honda HR-V retains its lower MSRP.
Moving on to fuel efficiency, the 2019 HR-V posts superb city and highway mpg in it standard LX 2WD CVT trim, boasting figures that top the Subaru Crosstrek by five mpg in city, highway and combined driving. If you opt for the AWD system on your new Honda, you'll still enjoy comparable EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings to the Subaru!
One of the areas where the 2019 Honda HR-V truly shines is with its cabin. Not only is this small crossover high-tech and highly refined, but it's also one of the roomiest options around! Honda's 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® comes standard on every 2019 HR-V and features multiple seat modes to help you accommodate long or tall items with ease. With all seats in the upright position, the HR-V afford 24.3 cubic feet for cargo, compared to just 20.8 cubic feet in the Subaru Crosstrek. Folding down the rear seating for maximum cargo-hauling capabilities keeps the Honda ahead with 58.8 versus 55.3 cubic feet of cargo volume, respectively.
In many ways, the 2019 Honda HR-V comes out on top in this subcompact crossover comparison.
