Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Renegade offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Crosstrek. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Renegade and the Subaru Crosstrek.

Convenience
With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Renegade, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Renegade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Crosstrek. 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 Jeep Renegade is much higher than that for the Subaru Crosstrek.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Renegade is much wider than the Subaru Crosstrek, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Renegade, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Crosstrek.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Renegade and the Subaru Crosstrek are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Renegade is clearly the choice over the Subaru Crosstrek for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Renegade and the Subaru Crosstrek.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Renegade and the Subaru Crosstrek. The Jeep Renegade has less cargo space than the Subaru Crosstrek, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Renegade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Crosstrek.
