2018 Subaru Crosstrek Release Date Reviews

Subaru Crosstrek is a fun alternative to your traditional CUV.

There is a sweet spot in a crowded crossover class that is destined for Subaru Crosstrek. It’s a small charming thing, with a standard wheel drive, lots of room inside, and a “who cares if it gets dirty?” Attitude. Instead of rethinking the existence of Crosstrek, Subaru instead embraced niche status to refresh the 2018 model year. It has the same attitude, but has an improvement in key areas that make it more fun to drive and better to use from day to day.

Better to live respectively Because in 2018 Crosstrek is essentially a lifted adaptation of the updated Impreza, it profits by all the general changes to the general refinement.That means quieter inside, with nicer materials used in the cabin. No superstar comfort or luxury – probably the best grade average. But if you have spent a lot of time in old Crosstrek, you will definitely pay attention – and appreciate – a great interior upgrade.

Better to drive (mostly). Crosstrek drove an entirely new architecture, paying dividends in the freight and travel department. Indeed, even on the littler 17-inch wheels, Crosstrek is organized around the bend, with responsive steering that reacts rapidly and illuminates in general activity. On the highway, ride Crosstrek with confidence planted, and even on rough sidewalks – or dirt roads, where Subie likes to play – Impreza equestrian ride is sturdy and stable. And fun to glide around a serious angle. Powertrain itself, however … well, I’ll do it in a minute.

Come on, grab his wand. Most buyers will choose a continuously variable transmission, but those who want to shift themselves are not lucky. In fact, the Subaru offers a six-speed manual transmission on both the base model and the Premium trim volume seen here. In other words, you do not have to sacrifice pleasantries like heated seats, car headlights, and touchscreen infotainment systems if you want to row your own gear. Of course, if you want to get Subaru’s EyeSight suite of security technologies, you are locked in the CVT experience.

The true price of the Model Premium 2.0i is not only well equipped, but at a very reasonable price point. As tested, this Crosstrek costs $ 23,510, which feels like a total bargain. A smaller, dumpier Chevy Trax, equipped with a Chevy Trax costs a little more.

Cons

Without mercy Crosstrek should derive from the perspective of ride and handling, the engine is a weak point. The type of Subaru 2.0 liter naturally aspirated four is found to be less experienced, with 152 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. Below about 3,000 rpm, it is struggling, and on some climbing climbs, I find myself lowering my teeth or two feet just to get some resilience. For vehicles that will spend most of their lives around towns and across highways and country roads, more low-end power will be great.

Is this new? While I do not think 2018 Crosstrek looks bad, it does not really look new, either. If you told me that this is a 2013 model, I will trust you. If you want a crossover with fresh and modern styling, you should look elsewhere.
