Subaru XV Crosstrek

Subaru has just tweaked the Impreza hatchback to create the XV Crosstrek. The new model performs well, mainly because the vehicle which it’s based on is excellent. It’s hard to distinguish whether it is the new Impreza or the XV Crosstrek.

The XV Crosstrek comes in two versions, Premium and Limited.  The XV Crosstrek comes in two trim levels, Premium and Limited. Both get there power from a 2.0-liter, horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine.  A five-speed manual transmission with a hill-holder clutch is standard on Premium models, with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), as an option.  The CVT, along with leather-trimmed upholstery, automatic climate control, a rearview camera and an upgraded audio system, is standard in the Limited trim level. All-wheel drive is standard in both models.

The XV Crosstrek’s engine is the same at the Impreza’s, and it turns in an adequate performance.  Acceleration around town was lively in our Limited model. However, performance waned as speeds climbed. The zero-to-60 time is 10.3 seconds, which is more than adequate for family use.

The interior is comfortable, with a surprising amount of space for back seat riders considering the Subaru XV Crosstrek’s exterior dimensions. Cargo capacity is good, though it falls well short of the Subaru Forester’s capacity. The new Subaru XV Crosstrek offers an appealing blend of utility and style. Expect it to move briskly off Subaru dealers’ lots. If that’s the case, it will fit right in with the rest of the Subaru lineup.
