Handling isn't as precise as that of some rivals

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek flexes a more potent available powertrain but still prioritizes safety and capability.

Pros
Excellent CVT
Off-road capable, rugged looks
Standard AWD
New Sport trim
Standard safety tech

Cons
Cramped USB ports
Limited-release hybrid
Manual transmission omits more than it adds
Limited trim not a value

Along with a light visual refresh that includes new front bumper and grille designs, the 2021 Crosstrek gains a Sport model and a more powerful engine option. The new 2.5-liter flat-four has been lifted from the mid-size Legacy sedan and Outback station wagon and plopped under the hood of Sport and Limited models of the Crosstrek; the languid 2.0-liter engine is still in the mix, but relegated to the base and Premium models only.

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is an American SUV icon and off-road wonder, but not without compromise.

Two- or four-door body styles

Cons
Expensive in almost any trim
Rough everyday ride
Cramped rear seat

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler comes with four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed manual.New V6 mild hybrid engine option on Sahara Unlimited trim.New Altitude variant for Sport and Sahara models.Moab trim discontinued.

Pros
Unrelentingly capable off-road
Rugged Jeep character
Extensive customization options from the factory and aftermarket

Cons
Steering is slow and feels loose, especially on the Rubicon trim
Lots of wind and tire noise at highway speeds
Less cargo space than some conventional crossovers

By:

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is what the Jeep brand is all about—with roots that date back to the original World War II–era military vehicle—and its off-road capability borders on amazing. While it looks much like the first-generation Jeep that was created to support our troops, it has evolved into a one-of-kind four-wheel-drive vehicle, with tech and luxury to match its off-road chops. It offers everything from air conditioning to leather.

Pros
Throwback styling, heroic off-road capability, you can take off the doors and roof.

Cons
Tight cabin, lots of wind noise, trucklike compared with other SUVs.
