Finished in an attractive shade of Quartz Blue Pearl, our XV Crosstrek 2.0i test car drew plenty of praise for its upscale looks. In combination with black honeycomb wheels and privacy glass--both standard--the Crosstrek's high-quality paint job gave it the appearance of a more expensive car.
Standard equipment included air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity for phones, heated front seats and a tire pressure monitoring system.
Our Crosstrek had a base price of $21,995 and only two options:
- Continuously variable transmission ($1,000)
- Moonroof ($1,000)
With a destination fee of $825, the car stickered for a very reasonable $24,820.
