View Inventory

Both the 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek are subcompact crossovers that provide great fuel economy estimates and the versatility you want out of an SUV here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area. They both clock in at affordable price points and promise industry leading reliability. There are some big differences between these two models, however, so read on to see how they really compare!

Efficiency and Performance

We know that you want enough muscle for both merging and passing, and the highest fuel economy possible. To that end, the 2016 Honda HR-V earns an EPA estimate of 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* with front-wheel drive and continuously variable transmission, and 27 mpg city/32 mpg highway/29 mpg combined with all-wheel drive and continuously variable transmission.

The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek can’t quite keep up; it earns an EPA estimated 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway/29 mpg combined with its continuously variable transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

It’s clear that the Honda HR-V earns superior fuel economy. You also won’t notice any performance difference since these two models offer almost identical power outputs with the HR-V at 141 hp and the Crosstrek at 148 hp.

Cabin and Cargo

We know another top priority for shoppers in this category is cabin space for passengers and cargo space for luggage. The 2016 Honda HR-V offers 58.8 cubic feet of cargo volume with the back seats down and up to 24.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats in place. The HR-V also offers 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space.

The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek will only provide 51.9 cubic feet when you fold down the rear seats. With all seats in place the Crosstrek will only fit 22.3 cubic feet. The Crosstrek only offers 97.5 cubic feet of passenger volume.


The most affordable 2016 Honda HR-V will set you back $19,115 MSRP in the 2WD LX trim with the six-speed manual transmission while the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek starts at a $21,595 MSRP. Factor in your fuel costs and you’ll see that the HR-V is far more affordable to own that the Crosstrek.
