These days people are in love with crossover sport utility vehicles. Check out the roads these days and note how many crossovers are out there. Yes, it’s quite a lot and the trend is not expected to decline anytime soon. Keeping that in mind, Subaru decided there was room for at least one more crossover offering, unveiling the new 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek. Crosstrek kind of grabs one’s attention, as in, “What is it.”

The Crosstrek is essentially based on the Subaru Impreza hatchback that was redesigned last year. There are differences, but in other world markets the Crosstrek may be referred to as the “Impreza XV” due to the similarity.¬†Where the Crosstrek primarily differs from the Impreza is it rides 3 inches higher and has a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, which is useful when driving in snow or off-road adventures. Subaru hopes the combination of all-wheel drive, solid fuel economy (25-33 mph), and good cargo space make the Crosstrek unique in its class.

Subaru is very good in straight lines given its 2.0-liter, horizontally opposed “boxer” four-cylinder engine that offers 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The Crosstrek goes a sluggish 0-60 mph in 10.1 seconds. The suggestion here is offer a V-6 or turbo-charged model for people who want more performance. Right now, there are two Crosstrek trim models Premium and Limited with the identical four-cylinder engine.
