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.
