The all-new Subaru Crosstrek proved wildly popular in its debut year, flying out of showrooms across the country and earning the title of Best Compact SUV/Crossover in Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Awards. That winning formula returns with a few modest tweaks in the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, which is every bit as inspired a choice for individual drivers and families alike.
Inside the cabin of the Crosstrek, you’ll find amenities and technologies designed with the modern driver at heart. The 2019 Crosstrek comes standard with a 6.5-inch STARLINK™ Multimedia system, which includes a variety of infotainment features such as Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Pandora® and Aha™ smartphone integration and Bluetooth® audio and phone connectivity. The 2.0i Limited upgrades the infotainment features with an 8-inch STARLINK™ Multimedia Plus system, adding HD Radio®, Bluetooth® text messaging capabilities and a dual USB port. You can also opt for the available eight-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system for a large-scale music experience.
Across the board, the Subaru Crosstrek comes with streamlined performance for the best possible experience behind the wheel. Its standard 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® four-cylinder engine produces 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque for an energetic, spirited drive. The 2.0i and 2.0i Premium feature a standard six-speed manual transmission and are available with a Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission; the 2.0i Limited gets the Lineartronic® CVT standard. All three models are equipped with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, making the Crosstrek a sound choice for drivers looking for added confidence in inclement weather or when driving off-road.
The Subaru Crosstrek uses its advanced tech to make every drive even safer. Passive safety features such as a full airbag suite and a LATCH system help protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident. In an ideal situation, there wouldn’t be an accident at all, which is why the Subaru Crosstrek puts an emphasis on driver-assist technologies. The range-topping 2.0i Limited comes with an EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system, which includes features such as Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning.
Stylish, fun to drive and replete with cutting-edge technologies to boost convenience and confidence, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek earns its award-winning reputation.
