Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda HR-V, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
