The 2021 Crosstrek Hybrid returns with only a minor facelift. The front fascia have been redesigned, and the suspension has been tweaked to help the ride and handling. For those upgrades, the 2021 model asks an extra $200 over last year.
This Crosstrek is an unusual breed: a plug-in hybrid crossover (gas-only models covered separately). Although electrified powertrains are rapidly gaining popularity, competition is still scarce — the Crosstrek’s biggest rivals are the Toyota RAV4 Prime and the Kia Niro PHEV.
