The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek has officially come to life!

The rugged capabilities of the Crosstrek mixed with the sleekness and advanced features means this vehicle will take you anywhere with added comfort and convenience. It falls under the crossover category (or CUV) which has become a consumer favorite lately because of its interior design that resembles an SUV, all-wheel drive capabilities, but all based on the unibody car platform.

This is the second generation Crosstrek, giving explorers and wanderers a new, refreshed feel for their inquisitive adventures. Subaru focused primarily on the global platform, with emphasis on the chassis system to ensure a smoother ride and more versatility for the driver’s expedition.

The redesign keeps the same trim models but makes several specific upgrades per trim. The first is the Crosstrek 2.0i. These are the updates you can find on the base model:

·         Standard 6-speed manual transmission (replaces the 5-speed manual transmission)

·         An optional Virtual 7-speed manual mode Lineartronic CVT with X-Mode and Hill Descent Control

·         Active Torque Vectoring

·         A 2.0 Liter Boxer engine with Direct Injection and 12.5:1 compression ratio

·         An increase in performance to 152 HP and 148 lb. ft. of torque

·         A 16.6-gallon fuel tank (up from 15.9-gallons)

·         Stablex front suspension for improved low speed handling and high speed ride comfort
Quicker steering ratio for greater steering response

The Crosstrek 2.0i Premium has a few different features available. Plus there are additional add-ons for safety and style such as a power moonroof, Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist, Blind Spot Protection, and Rear-Cross Traffic Alert:

·         STARLINK 6.5” Multimedia audio system with 6 speakers and Smartphone integration including Aha™, Pandora®, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

Finally the Crosstrek 2.0i Limited offers the loaded model, with the ability to add on safety and style features just as the 2.0i Premium with a few more inclusions, such as High Beam Assist, Rear Automatic Braking, GPS Navigation, and a Harmon/Kardon Audio System:

·         6-Way Power Driver’s Seat (by popular demand!)

·         Keyless Access with Push Button Start and PIN Code Access
