With 8.7 inches of ground clearance and available X-MODE® with Hill Descent Control — which electronically optimizes the engine, transmission, and other systems for increased traction in slippery conditions — Crosstrek provides peace of mind on almost any road.
The legendary SUBARU BOXER engine, built on over 50 years of Subaru engineering experience, now features direct injection for increased power and impressive efficiency. The horizontal layout offers natural balance and a low center of gravity while delivering an efficient transfer of power.
Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring helps provide sharper, more stable handling. It automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep you on your intended path.
The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It makes for improved handling, efficiency, and a quicker response to road conditions.
Standard raised roof rails and an extensive line of racking accessories provide cargo-carrying flexibility to help bring more gear wherever life takes you.
Crosstrek now offers available 18-inch alloy wheels, featuring an aggressive design in black and machine finish.

The 2018 Crosstrek interior is designed to be a comfortable basecamp for all your adventures, with upgraded high-quality materials and an innovative new acoustic windshield that helps reduce noise.
The Crosstrek surrounds passengers with stylish contrast stitching, and the newly available perforated leather-trimmed upholstery improves ventilation and provides greater comfort.
New for 2018, the Crosstrek now features available Harman Kardon premium audio. The 8-speaker, 432-watt-equivalent system adds a high-quality soundtrack to all your adventures.
EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations. And with the addition of Lane Keep Assist — new to Crosstrek for 2018 — it can even help you steer back into your lane. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.
A standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances rear visibility when backing up. Its display includes guidelines to help you see the vehicle’s path and judge distance to other objects. And with available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to avoid objects behind while in reverse.
Using radar sensors, the Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, utilizing an audible warning and flashing visual indicator in your side mirrors and Rear-Vision Camera display.
The all-new body structure for the Crosstrek, based on the new Subaru Global Platform, delivers greater rigidity and a 40 percent improvement in crash energy absorption for increased occupant protection.
