The 2018 Honda HR-V and 2018 Subaru Crosstrek are only natural competitors for the same types of buyers, as these two crossovers provide impressive versatility, technology and value. Here at DCH Paramus Honda, we have compiled a comparison of Honda's 2018 HR-V with the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek to help local Clifton and Paterson, NJ area drivers and families determine which is a better option for their lifestyle, budget and preferences. Let's delve into some key differences between Honda's and Subaru's small crossover offerings, including in their cabin and safety features and cargo-hauling capabilities.
If you are choosing a crossover instead of a sedan, then chances are you have a need or want for generous cargo space in your new ride. While both the 2018 Honda HR-V and Subaru Crosstrek deliver substantial cargo-hauling space, the HR-V boasts a bit more space in its expandable cargo area. With 24.3 cubic feet of standard cargo capacity and a maximum cargo volume of 58.8 cubic feet, the 2018 HR-V eclipses that of the 2018 Crosstrek, which offers just 20.8 cubic feet and 55.3 cubic feet, respectively.
Another key advantage the 2018 Honda HR-V possess in the cargo-hauling department is its standard 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat®. This adjustable rear bench seat affords drivers a multitude of modes to optimize seating and cargo-hauling; for instance, the Tall Mode allows for transporting taller cargo items like plants, while the Long Mode lets you transport items extending into the front row. No such second-row seat is offered on Subaru's 2018 Crosstrek, making the 2018 HR-V the choice for drivers seeking to maximize space and versatility in a small crossover.
Both the 2018 Honda HR-V and the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek can be had with advanced driver-assist technologies like lane departure warning and other features to help you stay alert and safe. Every 2018 HR-V comes standard-equipped with Honda's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera for enhanced vision while backing out of tight spaces, while the 2018 Crosstrek from Subaru comes with a standard, one-angle backup camera. While the Crosstrek utilizes available blind-spot monitoring which alerts the driver via audible and visual cues, the 2018 HR-V comes available with Honda LaneWatch that displays live video of the crossover's blind spot when the right turn signal is initiated, or by pressing the Honda LaneWatch button on the dash.
