2018 Subaru Crosstrek: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Subaru Crosstrek, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Review

Subaru has a fantastic lineup all the way around, and the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is no exception. Subaru took the Impreza and from there created an off-road appearance package. What came out of that was the Crosstrek. Check out these five reasons to take an adventurous Subaru Crosstrek home.

Premium Features

If you didn’t think the Crosstrek would offer high-quality, luxury-type features, then think again. There is available adaptive cruise control and some other cool technology. This includes reverse safety features like reverse automatic braking, which will stop the car by itself, preventing you from backing into something you don’t see.


Subaru safety is among the best out there. The Crosstrek has a ton of standard safety like a Brake Override System and a rearview camera, however the Eye Sight Driver Assist is well worth the upgrade. It can monitor traffic movement and apply technology if you don’t react in time, preventing an accident and keeping you safe. See the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek models for sale near you

Impressive Interior

The interior has a layout that is simple and very user-friendly. You can upgrade to perforated leather trimming with contrast stitching. Other upgrades include dual-zone climate control and a sunroof. As far as function goes, the 60/40 split seats give you ample space and there is around 100 cu ft. of passenger volume.

Subaru Starlink

The standard 6.5-inch screen can be upgraded to an 8-in. The impressive Subaru Starlink interface responds quickly, and has standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you have to have great sound, then opt for the available 432-watt Harmon Kardon sound system.

Standard AWD

Not many cars offer AWD standard. The Crosstrek engine has enough power for most driving situations with 152 horsepower. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine also returns an impressive 33 miles per gallon on the highway with the CVT automatic. It also has a higher 8.7 in of ground clearance, so you can go off the beaten path.

Autotrader Says

Strong safety features, versatility and an efficient engine make the Crosstrek an excellent choice. Tack on the starting price of around $22,000 and it’s time you get behind the wheel of the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek.
