2016 Honda HR-VAs SUVs and CUVs continue growing in popularity among consumers, their fuel economy achievements also continue to improve and expand. Gone are the days of puny mile-per-gallon attainment behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle, and most new SUVs on the market today offer fuel economy that rivals a car.

With fuel efficiency competition growing so fierce among opposing vehicles in the marketplace, buyers may wonder how the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek’s mpg stands up to the competition. Does the Crosstrek offer the best gas mileage out there, or does a competitor like the 2016 Honda HR-V deliver more miles per gallon? Keep reading, and we’ll explore the mpg offerings of these two crossover nameplates.

  • 2WD models with 6-speed manual transmission: 25 city mpg, 34 highway mpg*
  • AWD models with continuously variable transmission: 27 city mpg, 32 highway mpg*
