2017-Honda-HR-V-LXIf you’re shopping for a new crossover around Milwaukee, you’ve surely already seen what the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i standard features look like, but do they compare to the 2017 Honda HR-V? Before you make any decisions, we want to show Milwaukee drivers how Honda’s new compact crossover compares to the Subaru so you can see the full picture.

Compare to the 2017 Honda HR-V

We think one of the biggest advantages a vehicle like the 2017 Honda HR-V LX has over a competitor like the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i standard features is that Honda gives drivers choices. While Subaru makes all-wheel drive a standard feature, Honda lets their drivers choose by offering a lower-priced two-wheel drive model as well.

And when it comes to safety, entertainment, and convenience features, Honda is still a leader of the pack with standards like these:

  • Magic Seat: Honda’s unique 60/40-split folding rear seat offers three different configurations for maximum cargo-carrying versatility while the Subaru simply lets drivers fold the seat down.
  • Rearview Camera: While a camera is standard on the Subaru now, Honda still has an advantage by giving drivers a multi-angle rearview camera as one of the HR-V’s standard features, offering three views to make sure the path behind your crossover is clear.
  • CD Stereo System: Many automakers, like Subaru, are leaving CD players out of the stereo system on newer vehicles to save themselves a few dollars, hoping drivers won’t notice. Honda includes a CD player along with the auxiliary audio, USB, and Bluetooth inputs.

These are just the features of the base trims for each of these models, and with amenities like Honda LaneWatch and satellite-linked navigation, the HR-V manages to distinguish itself even more at the upper trims.
