Default 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Reviewed


2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Reviewed

Watch the full review video at Subiesport.TV

The new 2013 XV Crosstrek replaces Subaru's outgoing 2012 Outback Sport. Though both cars are based on the Subaru Impreza, only the XV Crosstrek features additional ride-height equal to the Forester, larger brakes, and additional body bracing to better deal with soft-roading adventures.

The new Crosstrek will only be available as either a Premium or Limited model starting at just above $21,000 (final pricing announced in Fall of 2012). Drivetrain choices include either Subaru's second-generation CVT or a 5-speed manual transmission mated to the 2.0 boxer from the street-going Impreza (148hp/145tq).

Overall, the car is a great option for premium small crossover shoppers. It won't win any races, but for real-world needs, this car offers quite a lot of bang for the dollar. We did ask if an XT (turbo) Crosstrek was in the cards, to that question the Subaru rep only smiled and said they didn't comment on future products.
