The Subaru Crosstrek VS The Competition:

Hillsboro drivers who are looking for a new SUV have a lot to choose from but not all SUVs are capable of meeting your adventure needs, offer the same safe and reliable performance or have the feature you are looking for. So to help you find the SUV that is just right for you we have compared the Hyundai Kona and Kia Sportage to the amazing Subaru Crosstrek. Then the only thing left for you to do is come down to the dealership and test drive the Crosstrek to experience why Subaru SUVs are so popular.


Drivers from all over the greater Pacific Northwest are looking for an SUV that is good on gas, fun to drive, and ready for every adventure you have in mind. Right out of the gate the Subaru Crosstrek is off to a commanding lead with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a 2.0L four-cylinder BOXER under the hood with 33 highway mpg., and the ability to tow up to 1,500 lbs. Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is legendary for unmatched traction, stability, and control regardless of terrain or conditions. Both the Kona and Sportage are available with less capable all-wheel-drive systems for an extra $1,500. Both SUVs are also significantly less fuel-efficient with 26 highway mpg. for the Sportage and 30 highway mpg. for the Kona. When it comes to taking the road less traveled neither of the competitors can offer a similar performance feature to X-Mode with Hill Descent Control and they also have 6.7 inches of ground clearance. The Crosstrek, however, has 8.7 inches and the available X-Mode works in tandem with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to optimize power, reduce individual wheel spin, and enhance performance on slippery surfaces.


Subaru has a stellar reputation for safety and is one of many reasons why Hillsboro drivers choose Subaru over the competition. While the Hyundai Kona and Kia Sportage also offer a number of similar advanced safety feature to the Crosstrek, they are not awarded with the highest possible safety ratings and the Kia Sportage is not a Top Safety Pick+. The Hyundai Kona and Kia Sportage also Steering Responsive Headlights or Automatic Collision Notification like the Crosstrek does. Subaru EyeSight is also held in high regard and in a recent study reduces rear-end collisions that resulted in injuries by an impressive 85%. EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is the combination of Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management.


Once all is said and done Willamette Valley drivers will choose which SUV they are going to drive in based on price and value. Once again the Subaru Crosstrek outshines the competition with a more affordable starting price, more standard features, and the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own for three years running according to Kelley Blue Book. Not to mention that the Subaru Crosstrek is built for the long road ahead and 200,000-miles of adventure. The Crosstrek will also maintain its value better than the competition and had the highest resale value in 2019 according to Kelley Blue Book.
