Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Subaru Crosstrek

John Diether
Automotive Editor - January 6, 2020
  • 2020 Crosstrek selection improving; 2019s sold out
  • No factory rebate, but dealer discounting likely
  • Lease from $275 for 36 months
  • Get 3.49% APR for 72 months

Getting up to speed:

The carryover 2020 Crosstrek continues flowing into dealers nationwide. Billed as a crossover, the Crosstrek is essentially an Impreza hatchback with increased ground clearance for moderate off-road capability. It remains quite popular with buyers.

Subaru's Eyesight safety system is now standard on models equipped with the automatic transmission. Other newly standard features include automatic climate control, automatic locking doors, and engine stop-start for enhanced efficiency.

The lineup includes the Crosstrek Hybrid, which features plug-in technology for 25 miles of all-electric range. Buyers remain eligible for a $4,502 federal tax credit, but the California state rebate is no longer available on this model.

Current lease and APR offers vary by region and will remain in effect through January 31, 2020. Examples shown here are for California.

Check for discounting:

As usual, there is no factory cash program on the Crosstrek (or any other Subaru), but discounts will probably be available at the dealer level.

What to expect on a lease:

Customers in Los Angeles can lease a 2020 Crosstrek (base trim with automatic) from $275 for 36 months (12,000 miles a year) with $2,175 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost of this lease is $335 — we don't consider that a good value for this class. At least there's plenty of time for offers to improve in the year ahead.

If you're currently leasing a Subaru model, your first payment will be complimentary, up to $500. This loyalty perk is available throughout the lineup.

If you finance:

The best rate on the 2020 Crosstrek from Subaru is 3.49% for 72 months. Rates will probably ease down starting next month.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek returns with an increased availability of safety features. For the new model year, all Crosstreks equipped with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) come standard with the brand's EyeSuite suite of safety features. Previously, EyeSight became available with the CVT selected but still costed extra.

Additional changes include some color shuffling, standard automatic door locks, standard automatic climate control, and standard automatic start-stop on CVT-equipped models.

Choosing Your Subaru Crosstrek

The Subaru Crosstrek is available in three trims: Crosstrek, Premium, and Limited. Pricing begins at $23,155 including destination for the base model and goes up to $28,405 for the Limited.

Engine Choices

Subaru’s legendary 2.0-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine makes another appearance in the Crosstrek. It generates 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque.

All-wheel drive is standard, as is a six-speed manual transmission on Crosstrek and Premium models. The CVT is a $1,350 upgrade on those two trims, and standard on the Limited.

With the manual, the Crosstrek earns 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 combined, according to the EPA. These figures improve to 27/33/30 mpg (city/highway/combined) with the CVT.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Subaru Crosstrek seats five and features 20.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the second row. Lower it, and buyers can open up 55.3 cubic feet of space.

Safety Features

As we already mentioned, CVT-equipped Crosstrek models come standard with Subaru EyeSight. This suite bundles adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and lane departure warning.

The Limited trim also gets standard automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are optional on CVT-equipped Premium models.


Subaru’s STARLINK multimedia system is standard across the range, centered on a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, and a USB port are included.

The Premium gets satellite radio, wi-fi hot spot capability, and a second USB port. The Limited upgrades to an 8-inch touchscreen with HD radio, while the back seat adds two USB ports. Navigation only becomes available on the range-topping trim.

Crosstrek - From $23,155

Even the base Crosstrek comes with a respectable roster of standard equipment. There’s climate control, cruise control, keyless entry, and daytime running lights. The exterior wears 17-inch black alloy wheels, while the interior features a four-speaker audio system.

Premium - From $24,205

The Premium trim's $1,050 price increase over the base model is justified by plenty of extra kits. The side mirrors and front seats are heated, fog lights are included, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather, the headlights function automatically, and there’s a CD player and two more speakers.

CVT buyers can add two options packs to their Crosstrek. The first adds a moonroof, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and push-button start for $1,695. Paying $300 more brings you all this plus a six-way power driver’s seat.

Limited - From $28,405

The only Crosstrek available exclusively with the CVT, the Limited rides on larger 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior upgrades include leather upholstery, the six-way power driver's seat, push-button start, and a leather-wrapped transmission handle.

It’s possible to add a moonroof for $1,000. It’s also available in a $2,395 bundle alongside navigation and a Harman Kardon audio system.

CarsDirect Tip

It’s easy to justify the price jump to the Premium trim over the rather stingy base model, but you really need a CVT-equipped 2020 Subaru Crosstrek to enjoy the safety features and creature comforts crossover and SUV buyers expect nowadays.
