2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Design

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek features remarkable design, both inside and out. The all-new available Plasma Yellow Pearl color creates a bold look that stands out from the crowd in the best possible way. Standard roof rails show that the Subaru Crosstrek is capable and prepared, while the new Subaru Crosstrek Sport trim level adds even more exterior features in the form of gunmetal accents, exclusive dark grey wheels, and a more aggressive grille and wheel arch moldings.

Step inside and you'll be greeted by a roomy cabin, with 100.9 cubic feet of space for passengers. Behind the second row of seats, you'll get 20.8 cubic feet of room for cargo, and the standard 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks allow for multiple interior configurations. Fold those rear seats down entirely and you'll get up to 55.3 cubic feet of cargo space! As with the exterior, the Crosstrek Sport includes trim-level-specific interior design features. It includes StarTex® water-repellent upholstery with yellow contrast stitching, combining style with durability.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Safety

When it comes to keeping your family safe, the Subaru Crosstrek has what it takes--and the five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is proof. In addition to having a sturdy frame and numerous passive safety features to protect you in case of an accident, the Subaru Crosstrek also features active safety features that make an accident less likely in the first place. Chief among these is the standard symmetrical all-wheel drive. Most crossover SUVs only offer AWD as an available upgrade, if it's offered at all. The Subaru Crosstrek, on the other hand, comes standard with this feature. When you're driving on rainy streets, the symmetrical all-wheel drive provides superior traction. Available LED Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) further increase your safety. When you turn a corner in the dark, the headlights turn with you. This better illuminates the area where you're turning.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Driver Assistance Technology

You may have heard of EyeSight® driver assistance technology, the suite of features that keeps families in Subaru vehicles even safer. EyeSight® is available on even the entry-level Subaru Crosstrek, and comes standard in the Sport and Limited models. If you're driving and the system senses an imminent collision, the pre-collision braking system and pre-collision throttle management can help you stop your vehicle, potentially reducing the seriousness of a crash or avoiding it altogether. Lane departure and sway warning help you stay in your lane and alerts you when you begin to drift without using your turn signal. Finally, the advanced adaptive cruise control now features lane centering. This feature works much like regular cruise control, but it can adjust the brakes, throttle, and steering to make sure that you're a safe distance from other vehicles and centered in your lane.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Performance

The 2021 Crosstrek retains the standard 2.0L 152-horsepower engine from last year, but it adds a new available upgraded engine, as well! The standard engine balances power and fuel efficiency perfectly, getting up to 33 miles per gallon. But if you want extra power, the Sport and Limited trim levels have a stronger 2.5L engine that generates 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, while getting even better gas mileage: up to 34 mpg! A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the entry-level engine, with a Lineartronic® CVT automatic transmission available as an upgrade. The 2.5L engine comes standard with this same Lineartronic® CVT transmission, but it also includes an 8-speed manual mode with paddle shifters.

There's more to performance than just the engine, and the Subaru Crosstrek is a joy to drive. We think the reviewer at Car and Driver said it best: "With its well-weighted steering and composed ride, the Crosstrek feels solid and planted through corners. The suspension is tuned to be firm but not harsh and soaks up larger bumps with ease." This exceptional driving quality really must be experienced to be believed.
