Subaru Crosstrek vs Jeep Renegade

Safety

As a youthful explorer, you love being able to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer. Thanks to the Crosstrek’s intelligent design, there’s no limit to where you can go. Whether you’re driving up Mount Washington or venturing through rural Maine, the Crosstrek will get you there safely.

Even when you’re looking forward to reaching the top (where the view is better), the Crosstrek will keep an eye on what’s behind you with its standard rear-vision camera. Plus, with seven standard airbags, you and your fellow explorers will feel completely protected.

Now with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, you’ll always have an extra set of eyes on the road – even when you’re off-road. From pre-collision breaking to adaptive cruise control, Subaru has taken safety to a whole new level.

For Subaru, safety doesn’t end on the production line. Even after you drive off the lot, your safety is still our priority. That’s why every Crosstrek comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. That means even when you’re off exploring, you’re never alone. All the services you need are just a phone call away.

If Subaru and safety go hand-in-hand, why waste your time looking at the Jeep Renegade? It should be no surprise that the Crosstrek received a five-star safety rating from National Highway Safety Administration

Performance


A vehicle’s performance speaks volumes about the brand’s overall philosophy. At Subaru, we believe that life is meant to be enjoyed. That’s why we created the Crosstrek – a vehicle that drives effortlessly on all terrains.

Every Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Subaru Boxer® Engine, providing you with maximum control and power behind the wheel. Whether you stay on the path or create your own, you can be certain that the Crosstrek is up for the challenge.

Achieving 34 highway MPG1 and Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) status, the Crosstrek makes it easy to explore more with less impact on the environment.

Wherever the Crosstrek takes you in New England – open your eyes and take it all in. Life doesn’t get much better than this.

Although Jeep tries to brand the Renegade as an adventurous vehicle, its design says otherwise. Unlike the Crosstrek, the Renegade comes standard as a front-wheel drive vehicle, with its 4x4 system offered only as an available option. As a youthful explorer who gives it your all, why would you want a vehicle that only puts half of its wheels in motion at all times?

Plus, compared to the Crosstrek’s 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Jeep comes in at only 6.7 inches. When you’re out exploring, you can’t be guaranteed a smooth path ahead. Sometimes, you’re presented with obstacles that you have to overcome. As a front-wheel drive vehicle that sits so close to the ground, the Jeep won’t be of much help to you. The Crosstrek is your solution to conquering even the biggest challenges.

Technology



If you’re going to go all out exploring, you need a vehicle that brings technology all in. Fortunately, the Crosstrek brings you nearly endless entertainment and information options. The standard Starlink in-vehicle technology features Pandora®, iHeart® Radio, Stitcher, AhaTM, HD Radio®, Bluetooth® audio streaming, and much more. So while you’re busy exploring, everything you could possibly need is just a finger swipe away on the 6.2” LCD touchscreen display.

The Jeep Renegade brings a limited amount of technology to the dashboard. Sure, it has the basics, but it’s missing many of the entertainment features that you’re looking for in a vehicle. What’s the point of settling for the Renegade, when you can get so much more standard in a Crosstrek?

Interior Space



The Crosstrek is the perfect vehicle for the youthful explorer, combining the comforts of a car with the capabilities of a truck. If the world is your oyster, then you should have a vehicle that also gives you endless possibilities on the inside. Fortunately for you, the Crosstrek has 97.5 cubic feet of interior volume. Whether you choose to explore on your own or with some friends, there’s plenty of room for everyone to travel comfortably. On the days when it’s just you and the equipment – fold down the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats to open up an impressive 51.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Go ahead - let it all in the Crosstrek so you can go all out!

The Renegade may have a comparable amount of space, but that doesn’t make up for its other shortcomings. When you’re out exploring, you need a heck of a lot more than just space to make the most out of your drive.
