Drivers in North Jersey and the tristate area have to be prepared for all kinds of driving. We get four seasons and all kinds of weather here-and sometimes in the same week. Plus, there are lots of parks, trails, and major metropolitan areas to explore. Compact SUVs, like the Subaru Crosstrek and Honda CR-V, are great options for drivers near Parsippany, Wayne, and Morristown. Which one is right for you, though? To help you decide, Paul Miller Subaru put them up against each other in this Subaru Crosstrek vs. Honda CR-V comparison.

Performance-Inspired Design

The Subaru Crosstrek is a nimble compact SUV that you can confidently take off-roading or to dinner downtown. It rides high with an 8.7-inch ground clearance that makes it primed for tough trails and big potholes.

You can also count on it to squeeze into parking spots and tight garages too. The Crosstrek measures 175.8 inches long, 71 inches wide, and 63.6 inches tall. This compact frame results in a light 3,117-pound curb weight and a 35.4-foot turning circle.

The Honda CR-V is both bigger and less maneuverable than the Crosstrek. Its frame runs 182.1 inches long, 73 inches wide, and 66.1 inches tall. However, it actually sits lower to the ground with a 7.8-inch ground clearance. With a larger frame it weighs in at 3,337 pounds and needs a little more room to turn around with a 37.4-foot turning diameter.

Subaru Crosstrek vs Honda CR-V: Capability

On top of riding higher and being able to turn on a dime, the Subaru Crosstrek is also ready for all sorts of adventures. It comes with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel, so you'll be in control on both icy roads and muddy trails.

It's also prepared to help you bring some extra cargo along for the ride. The standard SUBARU BOXER® engine gives it a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. That's enough to bring a utility trailer on your trip, take a fishing boat to the lake, or haul a jet ski to the shore. It also comes with standard roof rails, so you can strap snowboards, kayaks, or your Christmas tree to the roof.  

All-wheel drive is offered in the Honda CR-V, but front-wheel drive comes standard. While it also has a 1,500-pound towing capacity, it doesn't offer roof rails until the higher trim levels.

Infotainment System

Both SUVs come with a Bluetooth® compatible infotainment system. It allows you to stream music and safely make hands-free calls. The Crosstrek has even more smartphone compatibility, though. Its standard 6.5-inch touchscreen display includes both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

The Honda CR-V also offers a touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™. Unfortunately, none of that technology comes standard. The base trim is only available with a 5-inch LCD monitor.
