Whether your travels take you to your favorite local restaurant or hidden hiking spot, feeling confident behind the wheel makes a world of difference. Fortunately, both the Crosstrek and the Renegade take the safety of you and your passengers very seriously.
Both the Subaru Crosstrek and the Jeep Renegade are equipped with advanced safety features that can alert you to potential hazards and provide safety interventions under certain circumstances. For instance, pre-collision detection and a lane departure alert are offered on both the Crosstrek and the Renegade.
In addition to monitoring features, these SUVs come equipped with additional safety and security systems. For example, the Subaru Crosstrek offers the STARLINK® Safety and Security system , which comes with:
- Automatic Collision Notification
- SOS Emergency Assistance
- Enhanced Roadside Assistance
- Maintenance Notifications
The Jeep Renegade offers a similar Uconnect® Roadside Assistance feature that can help you get the assistance you need, but it doesn't offer all the additional features that the Subaru Crosstrek does.
Regardless of where you travel, having a vehicle you can count on to get reliably from Point A to Point B is important. Of course, you probably also want to feel confident in adventuring without needing to make frequent stops at the pump.
Thanks to its EPA-estimated 28 city/33 highway MPG , the Subaru Crosstrek lets you explore farther without having to put your adventures on pause.* The Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, only achieves an EPA-estimated 23 city/29 highway MPG.
Whether you're navigating the highway or taking your travels off the beaten path, having an all-wheel drive system is essential. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard in the Subaru Crosstrek; and while it's fully capable of handling trips on the pavement, it also provides the flexibility to go off-roading if you're the adventurous type.
The Renegade does offer 4-wheel drive, but it's not a standard feature in the base trim.
Of course, you spend most of your time behind the wheel, so you’ll want a cabin that’s comfortable. You’ll also want it to be large enough to transport both the people and the cargo you plan to take along with you.
Whether you're heading out for a weekend adventure or just to the local store, having enough room for both people and their gear is important. Let's see which model offers the space you'll need to travel comfortably and leave nothing behind on your adventures.
The Subaru Crosstrek provides a total of 100.9 cubic feet of passenger volume between its two rows. Meanwhile, the Jeep Renegade offers a similar amount with 100 cubic feet. However, the difference is greater when it comes to their amount of cargo volume. The Crosstrek has 20.8 cubic feet with all seats upright; simply lower the rear row to open 55.3 cubic feet . The Renegade’s cargo space pales in comparison with a standard 18.5 cubic feet and a maximum of 50.8 cubic feet.
|Shoulder room (front/rear)
Comfort is key when traveling. That's not a problem in the Crosstrek, which offers more legroom and shoulder room for both front- and rear-seat passengers. The Renegade’s passengers may feel a bit more cramped because of its more compact interior.
For drivers who regularly traverse the roads of Miami, Pembroke Pines, or Hollywood, FL, both the Subaru Crosstrek and the Jeep Renegade SUVs are worth considering.
Thanks to its adaptable performance, abundant interior space, advanced safety features, and much more, the Subaru Crosstrek reigns supreme. The best way to make that choice for yourself, though, is to get behind the wheel!
