Well, you know how Subaru took the Impreza compact hatch, lifted it a little, added roof rails and some plastic cladding, and called it the Crosstrek? That’s exactly what Ford is doing with the Focus. It’s a new version of Ford’s compact that’s not quite a hatchback and not quite a crossover.

Review: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Sport

  Review: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Sport On occasion, a single trim level or option package of a certain model becomes so popular that the manufacturer chooses to make it a model all its own. By far, the best example of this graduation comes from within Subaru’s own wheelhouse. Twenty-five years later, the Outback stands on its own as a model separate from the Legacy, having expanded its customer base from bohemian sandal enthusiasts to families looking for a quirky all-wheel drive alternative to the sea of milquetoast crossovers.

Subaru has announced that the 2019 Crosstrek will be its first model to receive a plug-in hybrid powertrain, available by the end of this year. We don't know what the pricing will be on that, yet, though.

For the 2019 model year, the Subaru Crosstrek doesn’t get a big refresh, but it does have a couple changes coming down the pipeline. One of those changes is in the pricing . For 2019 , the MSRP is up by 0.

The Crosstrek comes standard with a 2.0L boxer-four engine that makes 152 hp. Uniquely for the segment, and for crossovers in general, it continues to be offered with a six-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. And not just the base model, either. The manual comes on the Convenience, Touring, and Sport trims.

Optional on those trims, and standard on Limited, is Subaru's Lineartronic CVT, the full line has standard all-wheel drive.

The Crosstrek's standard 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It gets a software update that Subaru says makes operation smoother and more fluid. There is a new shade of paint this year, dark blue pearl, available on Touring, Sport, and Limited.

Base pricing for the Crosstrek remains the same, starting from $23,695. Other trims get a slight bump, up $100 from last year.

Subaru Plugging-In Crosstrek Using Toyota Hybrid Tech

  Subaru Plugging-In Crosstrek Using Toyota Hybrid Tech Subaru has just announced that it will be making a plug-in version of the Crosstrek compact crossover. It's the automaker's first plug-in, but not its first hybrid. Subaru's first hybrid in North America was the XV Crosstrek hybrid that arrived for the 2014 model year in Canada. That car used Subaru's own hybrid system that used a small 13-hp electric motor and a 0.6 kWh battery pack. The fuel economy increase was slim, and the model was dropped after 2016. The new Crosstrek Hybrid goes straight to the king of hybrids. Under the hood is the Toyota Hybrid System. That's thanks to a partnership between the two automakers that has Toyota owning a substantial piece of Subaru. So the new Crosstrek Hybrid will share plug-in hardware with the Toyota Prius Prime. Subaru hasn't given out the specs for the power and range of this new hybrid, but the Prius Prime uses an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and uses two electric motors that make 91 hp and give that car a 40 km electric range. This Subaru won't have a Prius engine, though. Subaru said that the Crosstrek Hybrid will stay true to its roots and use a Subaru flat-four engine. Subaru's latest platform, which underpins the Impreza and Crosstrek, was designed to accommodate hybrid and electric powertrains as well as gas-only. Subaru hasn't released photos but did say that the Hybrid would get some styling changes to reflect the new powertrain.
