Subaru Crosstrek utility specs

2021 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2021 Toyota C-HR Utility & Comfort

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek is the unmistakable champion when it comes to the size comparison. Five occupants can ride comfortably with ample legroom and headroom, offering a generous 100.9 cubic feet of passenger space. That's almost fifteen cubic feet more than the 2021 Toyota C-HR delivers. And when it comes to maximum cargo space, the Crosstrek wins again, with an immense 55.3 cubic feet of room versus the C-HR's paltry 37 cubic feet of cargo space.

Comfort is another important feature which Subaru never overlooks. While both the Crosstrek and the C-HR offer standard 6-way adjustable front seats and an available leather-wrapped steering wheel, the Subaru offers more for less. Heated seats are a standard feature on the Crosstrek on all models but the entry-level. If you want that amenity on the Toyota C-HR, you have to jump to the highest trim level and spend more money.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2021 Toyota C-HR Performance

With two powerful BOXER® engine choices, the 2021 Crosstrek is leaps and bounds ahead of the 2021 C-HR when it comes to performance. Delivering 152 horsepower and 145 lb/ft of torque from the 2.0L engine and 30 more horsepower from the 2.5L, the Crosstrek has the definite edge over the C-HR's offering of 144 horsepower and 139 lb/ft of torque. Any adventure is within your reach since the Crosstrek can tow up to 1,500 lbs while the C-HR isn't rated for towing at all. And Subaru's standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive means anywhere you want to go, you go with confidence. The Toyota C-HR only offers front-wheel drive.
