The battle between the 2024 Honda HR-V and Subaru Crosstrek has been the talk of Alberta, with both vehicles showcasing impressive features and offerings for Canadian drivers. From city streets to rugged terrains, these two contenders promise to cater to a diverse audience. Let's delve deeper into their strengths.
The Honda HR-V comes with an AWD setup, marking its prowess in snowy conditions. Known for its consistent driving feel, the HR-V does wish for a bit more horsepower. Nevertheless, its combined fuel consumption with front-wheel drive is at 8.3 litres/100 km and 8.7 litres/100 km with AWD. It’s worth noting, however, that there is a slight increase in fuel consumption from the first generation to the second generation.
On the other hand, Subaru Crosstrek’s lineup includes a 152 hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and a more robust 182 hp 2.5-litre flat-four. Paired with Subaru’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and AWD, the Crosstrek assures a reliable drive. The 2.5-litre engine, in particular, provides the Crosstrek with commendable touring capabilities. Its fuel consumption for the 2.5-litre stands at 8.9 L/100 km in the city and 7.2 L/100 km on the highway.
Safety and Technology Comparison
While the Honda HR-V focuses on user-friendly features (albeit, with slightly inconvenient square-shaped cupholders), the Subaru Crosstrek makes a significant leap in technology this year. An 11.6” touchscreen adorns the dashboard of the Crosstrek, which remains user-friendly with knobs and buttons for primary controls. Wireless CarPlay and Android Auto enhance the technological realm, although the screen might be a tad reflective in bright sunlight.
Safety remains a paramount concern for both vehicles. Subaru Crosstrek takes the lead with its 220 mm ground clearance, approach and departure angles conducive for challenging terrains, and steering-responsive LED lighting. While the HR-V hasn't detailed its safety specs here, Honda’s reputation in this domain remains solid.
The HR-V is remarkable for its space optimization. The Magic Seat is a pet owner's dream, allowing for easy boarding for average-sized dogs. Additionally, its aesthetic is one that meshes simplicity with efficiency.
The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek, meanwhile, presents an intriguing mix of rugged and refined. With added plastic cladding, the Crosstrek embodies Subaru's dedication to outdoor enthusiasts. The vehicle is available in four trims and showcases varying degrees of luxury and practicality. The Onyx edition, for instance, boasts blacked-out trim pieces and durable interiors, reminiscent of adventure gear.
