Is the Subaru Crosstrek Your Next Crossover?

Fuse car agility, SUV heightened dominance and minivan flexibility together, and you get the latest segment to sprout from automotive engineering ingenuity. The crossover class, with all its possibilities, has become incredibly popular over the past few years.  Increased popularity and demand has only inspired more automakers to jump aboard the crossover bandwagon. Now interested drivers have sizable opportunities to get behind the wheel, and in some cases, perhaps even too many choices.

You know you want a crossover, and a rather reliable and affordable one at that, but many brands are able to accommodate those requests. The Subaru Crosstrek, however, promises to do more than just be reliable and boast an attractive price tag. It is rich in performance, technology and safety, and with it available here at Sewell Subaru, it is also incredibly convenient to acquire.

To help solidify our belief that the Subaru Crosstrek is the ideal crossover, we are placing it nose-to-nose with another favored crossover, the Ford Escape. Compare the two, and you will find the Subaru Crosstrek comes out on time more times than naught.

Subaru Crosstrek vs. the Ford Escape

  • The Crosstrek starts at a more budget-friendly price.
  • Safety is not something Subaru takes lightly which is evident in the Crosstrek's Top Safety Pick Plus rating. The Escape's poor overlap front crash test ratings prevent such a recognition.
  • The Crosstrek comes with standard all-wheel drive.
  • Those looking for something more powerful should elect the Escape. Those looking for efficiency should choose the Crosstrek. The Crosstrek begins at 26 combined mpg versus the Escape's 25 combined mpg, and with the hybrid, drivers can receive up to 31 combined mpg. The Escape does not even offer the hybrid option.
