As a youthful explorer, you love being able to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer. Thanks to the Crosstrek’s intelligent design, there’s no limit to where you can go. Whether you’re driving up Mount Washington or venturing through rural Maine, the Crosstrek will get you there safely.

Even when you’re looking forward to reaching the top (where the view is better), the Crosstrek will keep an eye on what’s behind you with its standard rear-vision camera. Plus, with seven standard airbags, you and your fellow explorers will feel completely protected.

Now with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, you’ll always have an extra set of eyes on the road – even when you’re off-road. From pre-collision breaking to adaptive cruise control, Subaru has taken safety to a whole new level.

For Subaru, safety doesn’t end on the production line. Even after you drive off the lot, your safety is still our priority. That’s why every Crosstrek comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles. That means even when you’re off exploring, you’re never alone. All the services you need are just a phone call away.

If Subaru and safety go hand-in-hand, why waste your time looking at the CX-3?

A vehicle’s performance speaks volumes about the brand’s overall philosophy. At Subaru, we believe that life is meant to be enjoyed. That’s why we created the Crosstrek – a vehicle that drives effortlessly on all terrains.

Every Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Subaru Boxer® Engine, providing you with maximum control and power behind the wheel. Whether you stay on the path or create your own, you can be certain that the Crosstrek is up for the challenge.

Achieving 34 highway MPG1 and Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) status, the Crosstrek makes it easy to explore more with less impact on the environment.

Wherever the Crosstrek takes you in New England – open your eyes and take it all in. Life doesn’t get much better than this.

Plus, the CX-3 has a much smaller fuel tank than the Crosstrek: 12.7 gallons compared to 15.9 gallons. While Mazda may claim that the CX-3 is a fuel efficient vehicle, don’t let them fool you. A smaller gas tank means that you’ll get fewer miles for your buck. With so much exploring left to do, do you really want a small gas tank to hold you back?

If you’re going to go all out exploring, you need a vehicle that brings technology all in. Fortunately, the Crosstrek brings you nearly endless entertainment and information options. The standard Starlink in-vehicle technology features Pandora®, iHeart® Radio, Stitcher, AhaTM, HD Radio®, Bluetooth® audio streaming, and much more. So while you’re busy exploring, everything you could possibly need is just a finger swipe away on the LCD touchscreen display.

Unlike the Crosstrek, the CX-3’s touchscreen display is not LCD. Plus, apps like HD Radio® that are standard on the Crosstrek are nowhere to be found on the CX-3. You have plenty of exploring to do on the outside, don’t you think? That’s why the Subaru Crosstrek makes it easy to access the technology you need on the inside.

Interior Space

The Crosstrek is the perfect vehicle for the youthful explorer, combining the comforts of a car with the capabilities of a truck. If the world is your oyster, then you should have a vehicle that also gives you endless possibilities on the inside. Fortunately for you, the Crosstrek has 97.5 cubic feet of interior volume. Whether you choose to explore on your own or with some friends, there’s plenty of room for everyone to travel comfortably. On the days when it’s just you and the equipment – fold down the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats to open up an impressive 51.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Go ahead - let it all in the Crosstrek so you can go all out!

No matter how you look at it, the Mazda CX-3 is smaller than the Subaru Crosstrek. In terms of passenger volume, the CX-3 only has 87.6 cubic feet of space. That’s nearly 10 cubic feet less than the Crosstrek! Just imagine what you can do with all that extra space in the Crosstrek. Plus, even when the backseat is folded down in the CX-3, you’re only looking at 44.5 cubic feet of cargo space – that’s still less than the Crosstrek. When you’re off exploring, you need all the space you can get in your vehicle. Fortunately, the Crosstrek leaves plenty of room for your passengers and cargo alike.
