The Subaru Crosstrek is one of the Japanese brand's most popular models, offering customers a roomy cabin on top of rock-solid reliability, formidable technology, and excellent all-weather capabilities. And it's getting better for 2018.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is a full-scale redesign, with a restyled exterior design, a revamped cabin with new multimedia system, and a new chassis, based on Subaru’s New Global Platform. The engine and the all-wheel drive system have also been updated and the five-speed manual transmission has been replaced by a six-speed unit.

Choosing Your Subaru Crosstrek

Under the hood of the 2018 Crosstrek is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission. Subaru’s popular Symmetrical all-wheel drive system with torque vectoring is standard.

The manual-equipped Crosstrek has a mileage of 23 miles per gallon in city, 29 highway and 25 mpg combined. Meanwhile, the automatic model returns 27 miles per gallon in city, 33 highway and 29 mpg combined.

There are three trim levels — Base, Premium and Limited. Regardless of the trim, you get a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds and 20.8 cubic-feet of cargo volume.

2.0i

Priced at $22,710 (including $915 destination charges), the entry-level Crosstrek gets 17-inch wheels, rear spoiler, six-way manually-adjustable driver seats, cloth upholstery, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel and a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The CVT transmission adds $1,000 to the price.

There is no optional equipment, but a few notable accessories – an upgraded Rockford Fosgate audio system and an auto-dimming mirror – feel more significant and worthy of consideration than all-weather floor mats and the other detritus that occupies most accessory catalogs.

2.0i Premium

The Crosstrek Premium retails at $23,510. The CVT transmission retains its $1,000 premium, but also adds paddle-shifters. New components on this trim are fog-lights, heated front seats, heated side-view mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, improved cloth upholstery, automatic headlights, and an enhanced sound system.

The accessory items remain similar but if you opt for the CVT transmission, you also get the choice of three packages.

The first costs $1,395 and adds Subaru's popular EyeSight safety suite (adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist) along with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The second pack ($1,400) drops EyeSight but blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert and adds a moonroof. Finally, the first two packages for a discounted price of $2,395.

2.0i Limited

The Crosstrek Limited is priced at $27,210 and comes standard with the CVT and paddle-shifters. Features include those on the Crosstrek Premium plus 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery, a six-way power adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, smart key with push-button start and an upgraded eight-inch infotainment system. Blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert is also standard.

There are two optional packages — the first costs $2,095 and adds a sunroof, EyeSight, automatic headlights, and reverse automatic braking. Meanwhile, the second pack commands $3,445 and features options on the first pack plus a Harmon Kardon sound system and a more advanced multimedia set-up.

CarsDirect Tip

A loaded Crosstrek Premium costs just under $27,000, which isn't a lot of money for a vehicle that's this safe, this practical, and this well equipped. The base is a good choice too, although the Limited should be avoided unless you really, really need leather upholstery.
