Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Subaru Crosstrek. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Crosstrek, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Wrangler, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive 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 Wrangler is much higher than that for the Subaru Crosstrek.

Since the Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Subaru Crosstrek.

Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Subaru Crosstrek.

The Jeep Wrangler has a smaller turning radius than the Subaru Crosstrek, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Subaru Crosstrek for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Subaru Crosstrek.

The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Subaru Crosstrek, making the Subaru Crosstrek the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Crosstrek.

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