What we saw last month making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show as the new XV crossover will soon be introduced to the American public as the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. It is exactly the same car as the global XV with slight differences in specs, and it is still one of the most understated and value-packed cars in its class.
Powered by a rally-bred 2.0 liter boxer engine, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is built on the new Subaru Global Platform that offers enhanced performance, safety, capability and comfort. There are some elements on the exterior, such as the black side- and wheel-arch cladding, lower rocker panels and roof rails that prevent the car from looking particularly premium, but the same features make it rugged and practical. So, you should decide what you want.
As for the technology features, 2018 Subaru Crosstrek comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology (including Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure and Sway Warning.), Lineartronic CVT, driver-selectable X-Mode to provide better wheel control on slippery surfaces and steep inclines, Reverse Automatic Braking, and 4-way Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
The engine makes 152 hp and the standard features include a 6.5-inch multimedia touchscreen; Android Auto and Apple CarPlay; power windows with auto up/down on both driver and passenger sides; 60/40-split fold-down rear seat; power door locks and side mirrors; multi-function display with fuel economy information; tilt and telescoping steering column; security system with engine immobilizer; 17-inch machine finish alloy wheels; standard integrated roof rails; carpeted floor mats; and privacy glass.
