Subaru Crosstrek

Expert's Rating

2.85 (Fair)

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.

Generations

The first Crosstrek models were known as the XV Crosstrek, but the name proved too cumbersome. Subaru dropped the "XV" moniker in 2016 and launched the second-generation Crosstrek – the brand's smallest utility vehicle – in 2018. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek combines value, utility, and on-road driving dynamics to deliver a package few competitors can match. Available active safety technologies further differentiate the Crosstrek from the pack.
