The New Subaru Crosstrek: Made for the Adventurous Soul in Palatine

Subaru is known for making excellent subcompact SUVs, and the Subaru Crosstrek is not left out. It's quite similar to the Subaru Impreza hatchback but is slightly raised and comes with a more beautiful bumper and grille. It has an increased height and a standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that gives it an excellent off-road capability and performance.

The Crosstrek also comes with a spacious, comfortable, and airy cabin with supportive seats that makes the driver and passenger feel relaxed and comfortable. At Napleton's Palatine Subaru, we are excited about this new subcompact SUV and let you know the recent performance, safety, and technology features of this model from our new inventory.

What's New for 2021?

For 2021, the new Crosstrek gains a new 182-horsepower 2.5-liter flat-four-cylinder engine primarily available for Sport and Limited trims. The exterior is slightly redesigned to have a new front bumper and grille design that gives it a classy look. The all-new Sport trim gains the dual-mode X-MODE system and standard all-wheel drive.

This trim also adds StarTex leatherette upholstery for comfortable drives around Arlington Heights. The Subaru's EyeSight driver-assistance package in the 2021 Crosstrek gains adaptive cruise control and lane-centering features. All models with a continuously variable transmission come standard with the EyeSight driver assistance suite.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The fuel economy ratings for this powertrain are 22/29 mpg city/highway for the manual transmission and 28/33 for the CVT.

A plug-in hybrid powertrain is also available for those who are concerned with fuel economy. This powertrain delivers 17 miles of all-electric driving range and a combined fuel economy of 94 mpg-e. Charging takes two hours using a 240-volt outlet and five hours using a standard 120-volt outlet.
