Interior: As it moves into its second generation, the Crosstrek gets more interior space, providing a roomy, spacious cabin. There is good legroom and headroom for passengers in front and back, and the large windows and small pillars bring plenty of natural light into the cabin. The Crosstrek’s raised ground clearance brings the seats to just the right height to smoothly slide in and out for easy entry and exit.
Technology: The Crosstrek comes standard with a 6.5-inch display screen, with higher trims getting an 8.5-inch screen. Both are easy to use, with large icons similar to those on a smartphone interface. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration is standard on all trims, and the optional Harman Kardon audio system delivers good audio quality, adding to the driving enjoyment.
Driving: With just 152 horsepower from its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Crosstrek feels somewhat underpowered. However, the small crossover makes up for this deficiency with responsive handling, precise steering, and a well-controlled ride. Brakes provide predictable stopping power and are easy to modulate smoothly in city traffic. The Crosstrek is most impressive when the pavement ends. With its high ground clearance, all-wheel drive, and available hill descent control, the Crosstrek is one of the better off-roading compact crossovers.
Utility: It may have a spacious cabin for passengers, but the Crosstrek’s cargo space is less impressive. The small Subaru crossover has just 20.8 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, considerably less than its competition. There is a solution, though: With the split rear seat folded flat, space for cargo more than doubles.
