Compare The Crosstrek To The CR-V

Compare the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek to the 2023 Honda CR-V

When you need a compact SUV that includes value without giving up the features that matter, you'll want to consider the new Subaru Crosstrek. The Crosstrek improves upon your commute with standard AWD and numerous advantages you'll have trouble finding in other lineups. Even when matched with exceptional rivals like the 2023 Honda CR-V, the Subaru Crosstrek comes out on top. Explore our comparison below and see why we prefer the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek.



The Subaru Crosstrek starts at a lower base price than its Honda rival, allowing you to save more nearly $8,000 on your purchase or lease. However, the Crosstrek doesn't skimp on standard features to save you money! Only the Crosstrek comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, raised roof rails, and more! The Honda CR-V is the more expensive SUV and doesn't feature AWD standard, requiring you to pay more.


The Honda CR-V has the most powerful engine option, offering a standard turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. However, the Honda CR-V's standard performance is limited to 2WD - getting AWD requires you to spend about $1,500 more on your new SUV. The Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with Symmetrical AWD, allowing you to venture further off-road. The Crosstrek also enjoys better city and highway fuel economy than its Honda rival.


The Honda CR-V is an exciting option, but the current model lacks features you can find in the Crosstrek lineup. The Subaru Crosstrek features a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing you to connect multiple devices while on the road, and dual front and rear USB charging ports. The Honda CR-V features many exciting innovations but doesn't give you access to these options.


The Subaru Crosstrek offers plenty of capability to manage your off-road adventures. The lineup boasts 8.7 inches of ground clearance and offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights to help guide you through your nighttime drives. The 2023 Crosstrek equips raised roof rails for all your extra cargo needs. The Honda CR-V doesn't offer either of the above features and only provides you with 8.2 inches of maximum ground clearance.
