2018 Jeep Renegade vs. 2019 Subaru Crosstrek

Shopping for a small SUV with big performance capabilities? The 2018 Jeep Renegade and 2019 Subaru Crosstrek deliver no-nonsense engines and drive systems. Which is the better pick for your San Leandro adventures? McKevitt CDJR’s vote is for the new Jeep Renegade and its stronger engines and exceptional 4×4 drive systems. Compare the Jeep Renegade vs. Subaru Crosstrek for yourself below!

Renegade vs. Crosstrek: Performance

The 2018 Jeep Renegade Sport is offered with two engines: a 160-hp 1.4L 4-cylinder and a 180-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder. Two transmissions are available: a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic. On the other hand, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i gets one engine — a 152-hp 2.0L H-4. The Crosstrek also offers two transmissions, but its automatic lacks the Renegade’s gear range. Walnut Creek drivers can choose between a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed CVT with auto-manual.

Renegade vs. Crosstrek: 4×4 Systems

The Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Jeep Renegade gets a standard front-wheel drivetrain, but can be equipped with one of two Jeep 4×4 systems:

  • Jeep Active Drive 4×4 System: This system alternates between 4×4 and front-wheel drive. Available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System lets you switch between Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud settings.
  • Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System: Planning to do some off-roading? This is the drive system you need. This system is standard on the Renegade Trailhawk® and includes Selec-Terrain® and Rock Mode for rugged performance.

If you want a small SUV that can tackle Fremont’s roughest terrain, go with the Jeep Renegade.
