The reviews have been off-the-charts so far.

5 Things You Need To Know About the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

As the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek nears its late summer release date, many have been scratching their heads to figure out what design improvements are coming. For only $100 more than the previous year’s model, you get thousands of dollars-worth of upgrades and features. It’s time to reignite your love for adventure.


1. New Global Platform

Subaru’s commitment to safety is standard across every trim. Subaru has integrated their high-strength steel Global Platform design with the Crosstrek that enhances rigidity and improves crash energy absorption by 40 percent. This also makes the Crosstrek quieter, smoother, and more durable than previous models.


2. Updated Subaru Boxer Engine

Get up to 33 mpg in this fuel efficient SUV. The new and improved Subaru Boxer engine now includes direct injection for increased power and efficiency. With the new Global Platform, the engine is strategically placed to balance a lower center of gravity while performing optimally.


3. X-Mode with Hill Descent Control

The X-Mode with Hill Descent Control feature gives you control and peace of mind on daunting hills and rugged terrain. This feature optimizes the vehicle for increased traction. The car does all the work, so you have backup during more daring explorations.


4. More Interior and Cargo Room

New for 2018 is more space than ever before. Load all of your gear, buckle in with the entire family, and bring furry friends along with 100.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, 60/40-split fold-down rear seats, and a wider rear gate opening design.


5. Eyesight Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight works with your Crosstrek to monitor traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and more. It includes Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Keep Assist (new to Crosstrek for 2018) which helps to ensure you don’t veer into the wrong lane during rush hour.
