2019 Honda HR-V vs 2019 Subaru Crosstrek

Small SUVs are becoming increasingly popular due to their combination of comfort, convenience, and space. Those in the market for a vehicle such as this may be considering either the 2019 Honda HR-V or the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. Although these vehicles both have a lot to offer consumers, the HR-V beats out the Crosstrek in several key areas. Read on to discover why you should consider the HR-V over the Crosstrek and then get in touch with us here at Kuni Honda, serving Centennial Denver Highlands Ranch.

Ever panicked wondering whether or not you locked your car? With the 2019 Honda HR-V's Walk Away Auto Lock feature, you will never have to experience that again. Once you get approximately two and a half meters, or roughly eight feet, away from the vehicle, it locks automatically. You will hear it beep reassuringly once this has happened. If this feature does not appeal to you, it can easily be turned off as well. A walk-away automatic locking system is not available on the 2019 Crosstrek.

Even small SUVs need to have enough space for all of your gear and to seat your passengers comfortably. Grown-up passengers in the back seat will appreciate the legroom in the HR-V, which measures in at 39.3-inches, especially in comparison to the Crosstrek's 36.5-inches. The HR-V also comes with a standard split-back rear seat to make loading the vehicle more convenient. Another roomier part of the HR-V is the cargo space. The maximum amount of space for this SUV is 57.6 cubic feet. For the Crosstrek, this number is 55.3. Anyone who has ever loaded their vehicle for a long trip knows how important every last inch of space can be!

One of the things we love about the HR-V here at Kuni Honda, serving Centennial Denver Highlands Ranch, is the retained accessory power feature. This feature, which is unavailable on the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, allows the vehicle to operate certain accessories for up to ten minutes after shutting off the engine. Opening the door will turn off the accessories. This feature also does not operate when the body control module detects a low battery voltage. As a result, you do not have to worry about the retained accessory power feature ever killing your battery. Instead, you can use it to finish the song you are listening or finishing up that phone call over Bluetooth after parking and turning off your car!

Both of these SUVs offer drivers a good amount of power. Underneath the hood of the HR-V is a 1.8-Liter I4 engine that produces 141-horsepower. The Crosstrek has a slightly bigger engine, utilizing a 2.0-liter H4 that makes 152-horsepower. Although this may seem like a point in the Crosstrek's favor, the reality is that the HR-V gets considerably better gas mileage for a minor drop in horsepower. Where the 2019 Honda HR-V really shines is its standard 2-speed CVT featuring overdrive. For the Crosstrek, a manual transmission is standard and you have to upgrade if you want an automatic.

Safety - 2019 Honda HR-V dealer

Coming standard on the new 2019 Honda HR-V is a very useful feature known as Road Departure Mitigation. This system detects lane markings and will intervene if the vehicle starts to drift out of its lane without the driver using a turn signal. It can apply mild steering torque as well as use mild brake pressure to help maintain the HR-V's position in the lane and potentially avoid a collision. This very advanced and highly-useful feature is not available on the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek.

Kuni Honda, proudly serving Centennial Denver Highlands Ranch, invites you to contact us to learn more about the 2019 HR-V today. Our team would be happy to arrange for a test drive where you can experience all of the features described above for yourself. We genuinely feel that when you take a hard look at the HR-V and the Crosstrek, the HR-V comes out ahead.
