The standard automated climate control is another nice and handy feature.

4. Off-road capability

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is not just a convenient daily driver. It's also a capable off-road vehicle, with a series of features and settings that will allow you to conquer different types of surfaces and explore your adventurous side. It has a high ground clearance of 8.7 inches, helping you overcome different obstacles and giving you peace of mind when driving on tough terrains. It also comes with standard all-wheel drive that results in better grip, which improves traction on wet or slippery surfaces.

5. Great performance with the 2.5L engine

As far as powertrains are concerned, the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is offered with a base 152-hp 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates 145 lb-ft of torque and can be paired to a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. For more exciting performance, there is the available 182-hp 2.5L four-cylinder that delivers 176 lb-ft of torque, capable of reaching 60 mph in 8.2 seconds (when new), which is respectable for a vehicle of its shape and size.
