Available all-wheel drive; fuel efficient; available hybrid; small on the outside, big on the inside; lots of standard features
All but the hybrid XV Crosstreks come with a 2.0L 4-cylinder boxer engine making 148 horsepower. This engine is mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT). Both drivetrains come equipped with all-wheel-drive, a specialty of Subaru.
The hybrid XV Crosstrek comes with the standard 2.0L engine, CVT and a 13.4-horse electric motor and NiMh battery combination. This combination makes 160 horsepower and 163 lb-feet of torque, good for a combined 31 mpg estimate.
Subaru is serious about making sure the XV Crosstrek comes well-equipped from the factory. Crosstreks comes in two trim levels: Premium and Limited. Premium-specced cars come with plenty of useful features. The standard stereo has six speakers, iPod controllability, an auxiliary input jack, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity with live audio streaming. Interior amenities include heated seats, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control, a tilting and telescoping wheel, a removable cargo mat with plenty of tie down hooks, a hill assist function to keep the car from rolling back on inclines, keyless entry, power windows and door locks and of course, air conditioning.
Limited XV Crosstreks come standard with the CVT transmission, automatic climate control, automatic headlights, leather upholstery, a 4.3-inch LCD screen, nicer instruments and a backup camera. Options on both models include a navigation system and a power moonroof.
The Hybrid Crosstrek also nets climate control and keyless entry. A Hybrid Touring model includes navigation, leather and a sunroof.
Typically, all-wheel-drive vehicles must make accommodations for a driveshaft and rear differential, often reducing interior space. Fold down the 60/40 rear seats in a Crosstrek, however, and a flat load floor and nearly 52 cubic feet of carrying space are revealed. Rear seat legroom is also impressive with space comparable to many mid-sized family sedans.
Subaru has taken particular care with the safety features of the XV Crosstrek. It has all the standard electronic safety nets, including traction control, anti-lock brakes and stability control. The anti-lock brakes also feature a panic braking sensor that anticipates a panic braking situation and immediately applies full braking load. The front airbags are dual-stage and include a mechanism to detect how close the driver is sitting to the steering wheel, delaying airbag deployment accordingly.
The Subaru XV Crosstrek was a brand new model in 2014. This year Subaru has updated the XV Crosstrek with a new base trim, a new multimedia system and a standard backup camera. The new multimedia system adds a 6.2-inch screen, mounted in the dash which can respond to touch commands and which is also utilized by the now standard backup camera. The new multimedia system is compatible with various apps such as Pandora and iHeart Radio and offers iPod and MP3 support as well. Limited XV Crosstreks get an even nicer version of this multimedia system complete with an upsized 7-inch screen.
The XV Crosstrek is a small crossover vehicle, competing with other small crossovers such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V. The XV Crosstrek achieves excellent fuel economy and does so without compromising Subaru's famed all-wheel-drive. It also makes use of some extremely efficient packaging, maximizing interior space while simultaneously keeping the exterior dimensions of the vehicle somewhat compact. An available gas-electric hybrid offers very good fuel economy while maintaining the Subaru go-anywhere attitude.
