5 reasons to buy the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek

1. Spacious interior

One of the most appealing traits of the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek is its spacious and well-appointed interior. It can seat up to five people, with broad and supportive seats in both rows that make each ride comfortable, even on long road trips. In the second row, there are 36.5 inches of legroom and 38 inches of headroom, with 43.1 inches and 39.8 inches of front legroom and headroom, respectively.

2. Smooth handling

It may look robust and heavy at first glance, but the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek is nimble and handles corners smoothly. With well-balanced steering and firm (yet not too rigid) suspension, the Crosstrek absorbs bumps efficiently while delivering a composed ride that resembles a smaller, lighter car. This subcompact SUV is also easy to navigate in tight spaces, thanks to its short turning radius.

3. Off-road capability

In addition to convenience and comfort, the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek's off-road ability is among its strongest suits. For starters, the Crosstrek comes standard with all-wheel drive, enabling better traction on surfaces such as sand and gravel and on slippery roads. On top of that, the Crosstrek has 8.7 inches of ground clearance, allowing you to easily drive over various obstacles you might encounter on an off-road trail, along with larger puddles or other wet surfaces.

4. Tech features

When it comes to technology, the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek has a lot to offer. It's equipped with various features that increase passenger connectivity and provide a better riding experience overall. Subaru's STARLINK® infotainment system is part of the standard equipment, with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration. Additionally, there's standard Bluetooth® connectivity and a USB port, along with automatic climate control and remote keyless entry.

5. Plenty of room for cargo

If you need a lot of room for cargo, the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek has you covered. It has a large trunk as well as many small-item storage spaces across the cabin, so you can fit all your suitcases and bags for family vacations, or sporting equipment, large and bulky tools, and plenty of grocery bags for your everyday errands and adventures. There's 20.8 cu-ft of space behind the rear seats, with the maximum storage volume increasing to 55.3 cu-ft with the rear seats folded down.
