Whether you're in the market for a sensible sedan, versatile crossover, or a roomy family SUV, two automakers likely to land on your research list are Subaru and Hyundai. Both brands offer a range of models to serve a variety of different needs and preferences, each with several well-equipped trim levels that allow you to select your ideal blend of amenities and value. However, Subaru models offer a few attributes that may make them a little more desirable for Northeast PA drivers. Here's a quick look at three:

Four-Season Capability

NEPA drivers know a thing or two about driving in inclement conditions, and so does Subaru. That's why every Subaru (except the track-inspired BRZ) comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive. Hyundai SUVs offer available AWD, but it's not standard on any model. And AWD isn't even an option for Hyundai sedans. Subaru SUVs take their all-weather capability even further with attributes like X-MODE advanced traction control and 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

Subaru EyeSight®

Every Subaru with an automatic transmission includes EyeSight® advanced driver-assistance technologies as standard equipment, including Pre-Collision Braking System, Lane-Keep Assist and Sway Warning, and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering. Only two Hyundai models come standard with adaptive cruise control, and some only offer advanced safety features as options.

Cargo Space

Subaru SUVs offer a little more utility than their Hyundai counterparts.

  • The Subaru Crosstrek has 20.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 55.3 cubic feet when they're folded. The Hyundai Kona's cargo accommodations measure 19.2 and 45.8 cu-ft.
  • The Subaru Forester and Hyundai Tucson both offer 31 cubic feet of standard cargo space. But with the rear seats folded, Forester provides up to 70.9 cubic feet (76.1 on base models), while the Tucson offers 61.9 cubes.
  • The Subaru Outback has a little less space behind the rear seats than the Santa Fe (32.5 vs. 36.4) but offers more max cargo capacity (75.7 vs. 72.1).
  • The Subaru Ascent and Hyundai Palisade offer similar cargo accommodations, with both models offering ~18 cubic feet behind the third row and up to 86 cubic feet of max capacity. The Ascent has slightly more cargo space with only the third-row folded (47 vs. 45.8).
