The Subaru Crosstrek, or Subaru XV, is a subcompact crossover SUV that Subaru has manufactured since 2012. Since then, there have been only two generations released, with the latest models coming to the market in 2017.
The first generation was given the designation of GP, while the second is called the GT model.
It is considered the successor to the Subaru Outback Sport that was sold in North America. It also shares many similarities with the Subaru Impreza XV.
This crossover SUV features the typical 5-door layout and comes with all-wheel drive as standard. Subaru also included its X-MODE system to increase the SUV’s off-road capabilities. It is built on the Subaru Global Platform.
The Crosstrek faces competition from other crossover SUVs like the Mazda CX-30, Toyota Corolla Cross, and the Hyundai Kona. Because it has all-wheel drive as standard, it is only compared to the all-wheel or four-wheel drive versions offered by these competitors.
Trim options include Base, Premium, Sport, and the highest-tier Limited trim. The Sport trim was reintroduced in 2021 and includes a higher-performance engine to provide better power output.
Powertrains range from a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder boxer to a number of 2-liter boxers. There is also a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder boxer version in the latest generation.
Another notable engine is the 2-liter e-BOXER hybrid powertrain that is paired with a permanent-magnet synchronous AC motor that outputs 17 bhp.
Transmissions have included 5-speed and 6-speed manual transmissions in certain regions. There was never an automatic version released, other than the Lineartronic continuously variable transmission that Subaru uses.
