2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Jeep Renegade Design Comparison

We can't think of two adventure-ready brands with a more recognizable exterior design than Subaru and Jeep. The new 2018 Crosstrek and the 2018 Renegade hold true to the iconic style of their respective brands, and they stand apart from each other noticeably. While the sleek and refined design of the all-new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek presents an air of sophistication above its price tag with standard alloy wheels, the Jeep continues to represent the boxy design with standard steel wheels. Beyond the appearance, you'll find significantly more room for passengers and cargo inside a new Subaru Forester than you will in a Jeep Renegade. If you need to carry more, the small crossover SUV from Subaru comes standard with roof rails and crossbars. That's just one more way the all-new Subaru Crosstrek is designed to provide you much more for your money than the Jeep Renegade.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Jeep Renegade Performance Comparison

When it comes to the performance differences between the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2018 Jeep Renegade, there's more to the story than what the numbers on paper look like. The small crossover SUV from Jeep may come with a few more horsepower, but it's not enough to really notice behind the wheel. What you will notice is how much more money you'll spend standing beside a Jeep Renegade at the gas station. That's because the Subaru Crosstrek offers better fuel economy when equipped with an automatic transmission. Then, there's the difference in engine designs. The flat SUBARU BOXER® engine precisely sends power to each wheel through the renowned Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system in every Subaru Crosstrek. The Jeep Renegade, on the other hand, comes standard as a 2-wheel drive vehicle with 4-wheel drive systems available as costly upgrades. In fact, when upgraded with similar equipment to an entry-level Subaru Crosstrek, you'll find that Subaru also performs better for your budget.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Jeep Renegade Safety Comparison

With such adventurous capabilities that come standard in the new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and are available with the 2018 Jeep Renegade, it's important to know that you're safe. Fortunately, Subaru continues to be an industry leader in developing some of the safest vehicles available today. In fact, the Subaru Crosstrek has earned the highest safety awards from independent authorities like the IIHS and the NHTSA every year that it's been available. The Jeep Renegade falls far short of such proven safety. What's more, the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive we mentioned earlier ensures safer traction whether you're venturing out on slick roads or reacting to surprises on any road condition. You simply won't find this level of confidence in a new Jeep Renegade, even if you do spend the extra money to upgrade it with 4-wheel drive.
