It may not be so much of what you see… but what you get… that makes the Subaru Crosstrek new for 2016. For starters, the name is shorter; no more “XV”.

Subaru designers added refinements to the grille, headlights, and bumper… although the changes are really subtle.

As for all-wheel drive 2.0-liter flat-four horsepower… its the same at 148.

Inside, there’s new technology packed into this compact five-door… like the blind spot detection/rear cross traffic alert system which is standard on the 2.0i Limited.

But, what really sets the Crosstrek apart from other cute-utes is its abundance of both comfort and space. In fact, it came out on top during our most recent subcompact utility challenge.

So while the Subaru Crosstrek may not look that “new” for 20-17… it simply offers more of what buyers are demanding. And its available now, starting around 21,000 dollars. 


  • Engine: 2.0 liter
