Fair except ...
Both these cars are my top choices so I have been studying them. What Planet Subaru says is true but they omit some points to the advantage of the HR-V.
The HR-V has magic seats adding storage flexibility. The HR-V has 5 inch more cargo door height. A bicycle could fit standing-up in the HR-V but not in the Crosstrek.
The HR-V is likely to be offered in NA with an engine bigger than the 1.5l that would make the HR-V power to weight ratio better. The Crosstrek is often criticized for its weak engine and unrefined CVT. Although, I would see the lack of Direct injection in the Crosstrek as a plus.
We do not know if the HR-V will be equipped with Honda front sensing equivalent to the Crosstrek Eyesight.
An advantage of the Crosstrek, not mentioned in the comparison, is that it is more mature than the HR-V. Adjustments of the suspension and of the CVT might require a few iterations.
Then there is the persistent oil consumption problem of Subaru engines. Honda does not have such a reputation. The horizontal placement of the Crosstrek Boxer engine compounds the problem. Any repair requires getting the engine out of the car.
According to Consumer Reports the Japanese Fit has better reliability than the Impreza/Crosstrek. Will the made in Mexico HR-V keep up? We will see.
