Our Most Popular Crossover SUVs
The new Subaru Crosstrek has a unique, eye-catching design that appears more compact and sporty than similar SUVs. The standard engine for the Crosstrek is the 2.0L H4 engine which delivers 152 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. While each of these models comes with Lineartronic 8-Speed Continuously Variable Electronically Controlled Manually Interactive Automatic Transmission, the Crosstrek is the only SUV that offers the available 6-Speed Manual Transmission. If you love the size of the Outback but don’t prefer its iconic, wagon styling, then the Crosstrek may be the right choice for you.
If you’re looking for better fuel economy, the new Subaru Outback has an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. While each of these SUVs offer an impressive towing capacity, the Outback exceeds them all. The base trim, when properly equipped, can tow up to 2,700 lb. while the Ascent can tow 2000 lb. and the Crosstreck and Forester can only tow 1,500 lb. Compared with the other 5-passenger SUVs, the Outback provides ample space for adult passengers in the front- and second-row seats.
The new Subaru Forester has many similarities to the Outback aside from general appearance. While the Outback is eight inches longer than the Forester, the Forester sits approximately 2 inches taller giving it a more classic, boxy appeal. The base trim of the Forester comes with the same engine as the Outback which means it has the same horsepower and fuel economy as the Outback. If you want an SUV that can keep up with the Outback, then the Forester is a great contender.
If size is important to you, then the new Subaru Ascent beats the competition. With room for up to eight passengers and unique features such as nineteen cupholders and a front-facing camera, this SUV is the perfect option for growing families. It also offers the most powerful engine with a standard 2.4L H4 engine which delivers 260 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque. If you’re looking for an SUV that can fit your whole family and is equipped for adventure, then the Ascent is the right choice for you.
