While the Honda HR-V and Subaru Crosstrek are built for flexibility and athleticism, the Lexus RX is built for pure luxury. The SUV that’s right for you depends on your needs for comfort, safety, performance, and versatility. One of the biggest draws for the 2019 Lexus RX is its comfort level, which most drivers expect with its higher price tag than the Crosstrek and HR-V. The interior is spacious and inviting with plenty of leg and headroom in each spot. Although the base model comes with faux leather seating, the other trims get real leather and upscale interior trims that are almost incomparable to the Crosstrek’s and HR-V’s more modest cabins. When it comes to off-roading, the sportier SUVs are the more obvious choices. Both vehicles have one engine for each of their trims, but the Crosstrek’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder delivers more torque and horsepower than its rival and comes with standard all-wheel drive, making it more suitable for a variety of conditions. The HR-V pulls slightly ahead in on-road driving ability, though, with its responsive steering. However, the Crosstrek’s suite of standard and available safety features, like adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assistance, can give drivers a more confident ride.
