It’s easier than ever for Hampton Roads drivers to get all of the standard features they desire in a compact SUV! Plenty of excitement has surrounded the release of the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i AWD, but many have already discovered that the 2017 Honda HR-V is a much better option overall! In addition to offering significant advantages in terms of fuel economy and interior volume, the 2017 Honda HR-V possesses a plethora of standard features you won’t find anywhere in this year’s Crosstrek.

Get More Done with the HR-V Standard Features

The 2017 Crosstrek and the 2017 HR-V are priced similarly, but despite their comparable prices, there’s a world of difference between these two vehicles. You’re sure to be disappointed with the Crosstrek if you’re searching for a vehicle with a spacious, versatile interior. The 2017 HR-V, on the other hand, comes standard with both 60/40-split rear bench seating as well as under-seat storage, and that means you’ll be able to strike the perfect balance between seating space and cargo volume no matter what you have to haul! Carrying capacity in the Crosstrek tops out at 51.9 cubic feet, while in the HR-V, you’ll be able to access up to 57.6 cubic feet of storage.

The 2017 Honda HR-V’s superior interior volume gives it an edge over the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, but it’s not the Honda’s only advantage in this competition! Both of these compact SUVs have been equipped with all-wheel drive, but only the HR-V gets an automatic transmission as a standard feature. With its manual transmission, the Crosstrek only gets 23 mpg in the city, but drivers will enjoy up to an EPA-estimated 28 city mpg in the 2WD HR-V models equipped with a CVT!* Drivers who opt for the HR-V will certainly appreciate the convenience of its CD player and delayed power retention functionality, neither of which is available in the Crosstrek 2.0i.

Take the HR-V for a Test Drive!

There’s no denying that the 2017 Honda HR-V outperforms the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek at every turn! Hampton Roads drivers can get behind the wheel today by scheduling a test drive at a Hampton Roads Honda Dealers location near you!
