Subaru Crosstrek Performance and Safety Features

Although it’s considered a subcompact SUV, the Subaru Crosstrek brings performance and fuel efficiency that you might not expect from an SUV in its class. And, it backs it up with technology and features that keep driver and passengers safe along their journey.

Under the Crosstrek’s hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s good for 152 horsepower, which you can connect with your choice of a six-speed manual transmission, or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). With the CVT, fuel mileage is improved over the manual, bringing 27 mpg of travels around town, and 33 mpg of cruising along the highway. Those are above average fuel economy numbers for SUVs in this segment.

All models in the Subaru Crosstrek lineup include all-wheel drive, so you can be confident on any surface. With the CVT transmission, hill descent control and X-Mode are also included to improve off-road handling. X-Mode is only available on Subaru vehicles, and provides increased all-road capabilities on rough, uneven, and muddy surfaces. At the touch of the X-Mode button, the system will control transmission, engine output, braking and all-wheel drive torque split to assist drivers in complicated driving situations. It’s the answer you’ll be looking for when you need to drive up an incline with rugged or low-traction terrain, when you’re traveling on slippery surfaces that require traction and forward momentum, and on declines, where speed needs to be controlled so the driver doesn’t apply and lock the braking system. The Subaru Crosstrek is well-prepared to handle any driving situation you bring to its path.

Despite all this, the Crosstrek didn’t leave safety behind. It received the highest overall rating of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Crosstrek a Top Safety Pick designation. Safety systems you’ll find included or available with the Subaru Crosstrek include a rearview camera, reverse automatic braking, lane keep assist, lane departure and sway warning, rear cross traffic alert, pre-collision braking, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a suite of 5-airbags, brake assist, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes.

The Crosstrek is available in three trims, offering different interior functions and features to meet your specific needs and tastes. We have a wide selection of Crosstrek models at Colonial Subaru, where we have spent more than 90 years making sure customers drive off of our lot satisfied with the vehicle they’ve chosen to take to their own driveway.
