2014 BMW 328d vs. 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The BMW 328d offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru XV Crosstrek with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Subaru XV Crosstrek will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 328d.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru XV Crosstrek, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW 328d will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Subaru XV Crosstrek, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW 328d is much higher than that for the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Dimensions
The BMW 328d is a little wider than the Subaru XV Crosstrek, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 328d takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 328d does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Handling
The BMW 328d has a larger turning radius than the Subaru XV Crosstrek, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328d is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328d and the Subaru XV Crosstrek. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 328d as you will in the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 328d than that of the Subaru XV Crosstrek.
