    Default Subaru crosstrek vs Wrangler JL Edmunds comparison video



    Found this funny video cross-comparing a small Subaru AWD vs the JL Wrangler. I got a good laugh watching the Subaru scrape the nose and undercarriage on several very small obstacles.

    I like my Wrangler and my Subaru Outback, but they serve very different functions for me.

    A subtle chuckle at comparo-s. Different tasks - different tools.

    That's just a dirt road, I could take my car there. We had a Forester from new to 30k and they are for sure NOT an offroad vehicle. I'm guessing those guys have never really been anywhere aside from established campgrounds like that.

    Great point Paul, my thoughts exactly: Since when are dirt roads considered "Off-Roading"?

    Yeah, we have an Outback and although it has excellent ground clearance for it's class at 8.7", it's not an offroad vehicle. But it's probably the next best thing and does a great job in snow and on marginally maintained (but maintained) dirt roads and driveways. Which is why so many people who live in the foothills and mountains have them.

    Would have been a better comparison to put that Subi up against the Jeep Renegade.
