Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru Crosstrek than in the Toyota C-HR, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota C-HR, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota C-HR, 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 Toyota C-HR 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 Toyota C-HR is much higher than that for the Subaru Crosstrek.

Dimensions
The Toyota C-HR is about the same width as the Subaru Crosstrek. The Toyota C-HR is slightly shorter than the Subaru Crosstrek, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Toyota C-HR has much lower torque than the Subaru Crosstrek, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota C-HR has a smaller turning radius than the Subaru Crosstrek, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota C-HR has a lot less horsepower than the Subaru Crosstrek.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Toyota C-HR and the Subaru Crosstrek. The Toyota C-HR has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Crosstrek.

Warranty
The Toyota C-HR comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Crosstrek.
