In recent years, compact SUVs have grown exponentially in both popularity and the number of models on the market. This has both pros and cons for car shoppers searching for a new compact SUV in Midland as it means you'll have more research to do but also a better chance of finding a model suiting your needs perfectly. Plus, competition always leads to better vehicles, which is certainly true of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek!

The Subaru Crosstrek combines the qualities drivers love about the Subaru brand, such as reliability, value, and safety, with the traits drivers enjoy with compact SUVs, like versatility and capability. We're confident that this mix of characteristics makes the 2019 Crosstrek one of the best compact SUVs around, which is why we compared the Crosstrek and 2019 Jeep Renegade, another popular compact SUV. See our findings below!


Price is often an area that car shoppers look to first, and when comparing the 2019 Crosstrek and 2019 Renegade's price tags, they'll find that the Subaru compact SUV has a clear advantage. The new Crosstrek has the lower MSRP of the two models while also coming standard with all-wheel drive, which is a $1,500 addition to the base model Jeep Renegade. The base model Subaru Crosstrek also comes standard with many other features, like Apple CarPlay and Active Torque Vectoring, that you won't find on the pricier Jeep Renegade base model. All these combine to make the Subaru Crosstrek the better value compact SUV.


The exteriors of these compact SUVs are quite different as the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek goes with a sleeker, more modern design while the 2019 Jeep Renegade has a boxier look. But, that sleek look of the new Crosstrek hides a cabin that provides much more space than the new Renegade does. Both compact SUVs seat five passengers, but the Subaru Crosstrek has more legroom for both rows of seats as well as wider rows. This helps when you need to fit five for your adventures, and when you have gear to bring along, the Crosstrek again provides more room than the Jeep Renegade, which is true whether you have the rear row up or folded down. In short, style and cabin space both come out in the Subaru Crosstrek's favor.


Subaru and Jeep are both brands that outdoorsy people turn to when needing a vehicle companion for their adventures, and the Crosstrek and Renegade both excel in this regard. The standard all-wheel drive of the Crosstrek is a big plus, but the Renegade does have a slight advantage in horsepower and torque. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek does come with more ground clearance, which is a big plus when going off-roading, and it's one of the few compact SUVs to offer a hybrid while the Jeep Renegade has no hybrid engine option.


There are already many aspects in the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek's favor when comparing it to the 2019 Jeep Renegade, and its safety features help it pull even further ahead. If you're looking for helpful driver-assist safety technologies like lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and pre-collision braking, you'll find them available on every Subaru Crosstrek while the 2019 Jeep Renegade saves such features for higher trim levels. The 2019 Crosstrek also offers features, such as steering-responsive front headlights, that you won't find in any Jeep Renegade trim level.
