The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs. the 2020 Toyota RAV4

  • All-wheel drive peace of mind. As a top-quality Subaru model, the 2020 Crosstrek comes with the carmaker's signature all-wheel drive system standard across every trim. But the Toyota RAV4 doesn't offer all-wheel drive standard. It's available only as an option you can request on certain trim levels.
  • Size and space. From the outside, the Subaru Crosstrek is smaller than the RAV4. The Toyota is a little wider, taller, and longer than the Crosstrek. But the Subaru maximizes its interior dimensions for your benefit better than the RAV4. Not only does it have greater headroom than the RAV4, it also has more than two inches extra front seat legroom.
  • Efficiency and range. Both SUVs have similar EPA ratings for efficiency, with both models scoring a 30-mpg combined average. But the Subaru Crosstrek will take you further per fill up at the gas station, with a greater range and capacity. The Subaru goes around 448 miles in the city and 548 miles on the highway per tank of gas, while the RAV4 gets around 377 miles in the city and 508 miles per fill up.

The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs. the 2020 Honda HR-V

  • Size and ground clearance. Both models are considered the smallest SUVs in their respective lineups. But while the Subaru lives up to its SUV status, with nearly 9 inches of ground clearance, the Honda HR-V is a car-based crossover, with just 7.3 inches of ground clearance. Additionally, the Subaru Crosstrek is roomier inside than the HR-V, with more headroom and legroom, especially in the front seat.
  • All-wheel drive availability. As with the RAV4 comparison before it, the Subaru Crosstrek also outshines the Honda HR-V in terms of all-wheel drive availability. The Crosstrek gets the added traction of AWD standard, while the HR-V has it only as an available option.
  • Hybrid capability. Many drivers in the New York area prefer their vehicles with the efficiency and reduced emissions of a hybrid powertrain. For those drivers, the 2020 Crosstrek has an available plug-in hybrid powertrain, which averages up to 480 miles of total driving range. The Honda HR-V, on the other hand, is strictly a gas-powered crossover, with no hybrid options available.
