Space and Versatility

The HR-V’s cargo volume with the rear seats up is 23.2 cubic feet, and it has a maximum cargo capacity of 57.6 cubic feet. The Crosstrek, on the other hand, only has 20.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up, and a maximum cargo capacity of 55.3 cubic feet.

In addition to having more cargo space overall, the second-row Magic Seat® makes the interior of the HR-V more versatile. This feature lets you fold down the seatbacks or fold up the seat for flexible storage. With three different seating and storage configurations, the interior can be customized to suit your next trip.

Honda HR-V


The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is equipped with the 2.0-liter direct-injection SUBARU BOXER® engine, while the HR-V comes with its own efficient option: the inline 4-cylinder engine.

Efficiency and Handling

While both vehicles are available as all-wheel-drive (AWD) models in all trims, you may prefer the lighter 2-wheel-drive (2WD) design that is only available in the Honda HR-V. Multiple drivelines in the HR-V mean drivers have more choice in their handling.

Handling is a key factor in the performance of any crossover. You need a vehicle that can tackle off-road trails and adverse conditions just as successfully as it handles the dry road. So, no matter which one you choose, you’ll have a smooth and capable ride. The difference is, the HR-V provides a bit more variety than its competitor.

Honda HR-V


The HR-V is equipped with Honda Sensing®. This available suite of safety features works to keep you alert and safe behind the wheel.

Smart Safety Features

The available features include:

  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

With Honda Sensing®, you’ll be more confident while you drive.

Added Layer of Protection

The Subaru Crosstrek features a similar safety suite called EyeSight®. Its available features, like a Pre-collision Braking System and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, are very similar to those available on the HR-V.

The 2022 Honda HR-V adds another layer of protection, though, with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The ACE™ body construction strategically distributes crash energy. Passengers riding in the HR-V will have extra protection from frontal collisions. This design feature is unique to Honda vehicles.

Test Drive the Honda HR-V

With extra safety and a more spacious and versatile interior, the Honda HR-V is able to come out on top over the Subaru Crosstrek.

You’ll still have to get behind the wheel to tell if the 2022 Honda HR-V is the right crossover for you. Come visit us at Sussman Auto Group. We’ll schedule a test drive, and you’ll hit the streets of Jenkintown, Abington and Willow Grove, knowing that you’re driving a highly capable vehicle.
