Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Envision than in the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

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 Buick Envision is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. 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 Buick Envision is much higher than that for the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Envision is much wider than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Envision, which is slightly longer than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Envision does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid.
