Subaru Redesigns the Crosstrek for 2018 (Also: Look at That Puppy)

The Crosstrek is a new favorite among many Subaru fans. It’s more compact than the Outback and more rugged than the Impreza. It’s incredibly versatile and incredibly stylish. While keeping the same essential vehicle, Subaru has redesigned the Crosstrek for 2018.

What’s New on the Crosstrek for 2018?

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek features an all-new structure. Subaru uses more high-strength steel on this model for an even longer-lasting frame and 70% more rigidity. The 2018 Crosstrek uses the same beloved BOXER® engine, but it’s been updated to use direct injection for better power and efficiency.

The Crosstrek is still a compact crossover, but the 2018 model provides passengers more space. There’s a bit more room to stretch out in the cabin, and there’s also increased cargo space in back. A wider gate allows for easier loading and unloading.

We love the ruggedly handsome look of the Crosstrek. You can see its Impreza lineage, but it has a rougher, more outdoorsy appeal. We love its cool wheels, and for 2018, an 18” alloy wheel is available with the same sharp aesthetic.

Overall, the 2018 Crosstrek is going to be quieter and more comfortable than the 2017 model, which is a lovely vehicle itself.

Crosstrek vs. the Competition

The Crosstrek’s main rivals don’t come with all-wheel drive or roof rails, have much smaller gas tanks, and tend to have less horsepower. The Crosstrek still gets great fuel economy, with an estimated 27 mpg city and 33 highway.

Though the Subaru Crosstrek comes with an impressive list of standard features, it still costs less than most small SUVs. Consumer Reports ranked the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek as the #1 subcompact sport-utility vehicle, and we see that as only natural. As far as we’re concerned, the Crosstrek is in a class of its own. It’s a wonderfully versatile car and our customers are falling in love with the model all the time.

Please be in touch with us if you’d like to know more about the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. In the meantime, you’re welcome to test drive a 2017 model to see how it feels. Just be warned, you might love it so much that you won’t be able to wait for the 2018 model to come out!
