The SUV for Today’s World

Subaru outdid itself with the 2018 Crosstrek redesign. The SUV features amenities that only some of the next-generation models will include.

All trim levels are equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission that includes an X-Mode semi-manual control system. This allows you to gain better wheel control when on steep inclines or wet terrain. Many of the so-called off-road vehicles out there do not have this feature and it can be difficult sometimes when you take your ride to certain areas. That isn’t a worry here because the Crosstrek is ready to go no matter where you plan to take it. This SUV is one of the best performing models of all time from Subaru.

Efficient Performance Exceeds Expectations

The CVT is included on most of Crosstrek models that will be sold. The excellent CVT improves the fuel efficiency of the vehicle, bringing the car to a 27 mpg city mileage and a 33 mpg highway mileage, with a 29 mpg combined fuel efficiency level.
