The All-New 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Has Arrived

The Subaru Crosstrek is a great vehicle for anyone looking for a compact crossover SUV. If you want all the utility of a crossover SUV along with the efficiency of a compact or midsized car, the compact crossover SUV segment is probably right for you. But did you ever think about what defines a "compact crossover SUV"? Probably not. To start, it isn't a full-blown SUV, meaning it should be efficient. But it also shouldn't be a glorified compact car restyled to "look" rugged. It should have the features and specs to match. We're proud to say that the Subaru Crosstrek is every bit SUV as it is car, making it both a true crossover and a true compact SUV. To find out more about the 2018 Crosstrek, read on.

AWD Comes Standard; So Does Great Ground Clearance and Torque Vectoring

Among the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek's standard features is Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. We feel it's important for a compact SUV to be as much "SUV" as it is car, even if its interior and exterior dimensions are more reflective of a compact car than a full-blown SUV. As such, we've included our noteworthy Symmetrical AWD and torque vectoring (which is new-for-2018) on all Subaru Crosstrek models, regardless of trim level. Another noteworthy Crosstrek feature is its impressive 8.7 inches of ground clearance. Put three above features together, and what do you get? A very capable, very rugged SUV suited to both flat roads during inclement weather and bumpier backroads alike.


Striking Standard and Available Features

One of the first things you may notice about the Crosstrek's exterior, aside from its rugged good-looks, is the inclusion of roof rails. These come standard on every Crosstrek, which compact SUV and car buyers in Boston, Belmont, Cambridge, Natick, Newton, and Wakefield will, no doubt, appreciate. When you're looking to cart extra luggage, skis, bikes, kayaks, or other gear, you will enjoy the roof rails on the Crosstrek

Inside, the Crosstrek features increased cargo space, a wider rear-liftgate, updated SUBARU STARLINK™ multimedia system with Apple CarPlay™ and Andriod Auto™ - and much more. A 432-watt Harmon Kardon sound system is also available, as is Eyesight® Driver Assist technology - a welcome  system that helps Subaru Crosstrek drivers stay safe through technologies like adaptive cruise control pre-collision braking, and lane keep assist.

Some things Change, Some things Stay the Same

Despite many welcome changes, the Crosstrek still features an (updated) version of Subaru's acclaimed, economical Boxer engine. This engine configuration (some may call it "sideways") gives Subarus a lower center of gravity compared to similar cars, and that makes for greater stability and better handling. Inclusion of this engine also helps to give the Crosstrek the lowest 5-year cost of ownership among its segment, leaving room for more toys and trips. This Subaru is dependable as it is versatile
