2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek What's new for 2013? 
2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

The 2013 XV Crosstrek is a brand-new nameplate in the Subaru lineup and looks to make a name for itself in the small-SUV segment by way of impressive fuel economy, stylish sheetmetal and go-anywhere capability.

About Subaru XV Crosstrek

The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek SUV's additional ground clearance allows it to venture over rock-strewn trails and snow-covered back roads, places no Ford Focus or VW Golf dare set foot. The Crosstrek straddles the line between a compact-crossover SUV like the Nissan Juke and an efficient compact car. While you won't find such options as power seats or a panoramic moonroof (you'll have to look to the Hyundai Tucson for those), the Crosstrek is still a nicely equipped vehicle with a very attractive price. Of course, this being a Subaru, safety is paramount, which is why the Crosstrek can be equipped with Subaru's EyeSight driver-assist technology. While we applaud the effort, the Crosstrek Hybrid doesn't offer any real advantage in power or fuel economy.

"Subaru built a great vehicle, solid and very well built. The true, symmetrical all wheel drive means It holds the road extremely well, even with all season tires. There really isn't a better vehicle for winter. The boxer engine means it has a very low center of gravity, translating to better driving dynamics. This car has a great suspension, you don't feel much of anything (bumps, potholes, dirt road), and it is very durable. The combination of this great suspension and high ground clearance makes this car a good off-roader. If you get a trailer hitch, this car is good for occasional, light towing. This is an extremely safe vehicle (5 stars almost all the way around). The build quality is some of the best i've ever seen. There are soft-touch materials everywhere, very high quality parts, and attention to engineering. Gas mileage is alright for a car that is heavy and has all wheel drive, I am getting not quite advertised (average 25 winter/30 summer) but it is still good. I have a couple complaints about this car. The engine is not quite adequate, 0-60 is about 11 seconds, which I would almost call unsafe for merging. I really don't care for either of the transmission options (have driven both). The 5-speed manual is poorly ratioed, just doesn't feel right, the clutch is not smooth , it reminds you that the car is underpowered, and you sacrifice some gas mileage. I actually prefer the CVT, even as a manual transmission enthusiast. While there is nothing wrong with the CVT, it is incredibly boring to drive and has some noise. If you want a bigger engine, better manual transmission, more versatility, and more space all for the exact same price, look at Subaru's own Forester, that's why I only give the value a five out of ten, despite the good resale. This car is very versatile and is good in many, many applications, it is extremely solid and well built, Subaru has an incredible reputation. If you want a solid, unique car in a class of its own, this car should be high on your list"

"I owned Toyota RAV4 before Crosstrek. Crosstrek has better engine and transmission. Acceleration is good on all speeds up to 80 mhr (didn't try faster :) CVT transmission is way better then other automatic transmissions and it is not noisy as on another makes. It delivers power smoothly. On highway I usually get 34-35 mpg and average 30. Boxter engine is smooth, elastic, powerful, it is a masterpiece. It easily keeps 5000+ in mountains for minutes. On the same slopes my 3.0 liter Camry was overheated several times and could not keep the same speed up to slope. Car is understeered and it took several hundred miles to get use it, I always owned Toyotas which are all oversteered, that's why. Now I enjoy the steering, it is goood. You just have to get to use it. Suspension is sporty, a little bit harsh in town. But it rides much better that RAV4 on gravel roads. It feels a real AWD car. On wet road it is also much-much better than RAV4. I worked in Michigan this winter and have ride Crosstrek on snow and ice. It was comfortable (but winter tires are mandatory to get safe ride). Dashboard buttons and knobs are accessible in gloves. Space is enough for two campers. It is ideal car for skiers and campers. Summary: I love the car. It is the best small SUV on market. And I got AWD and CVT for free. For all competitors I would pay big extra and got much worse car. Crosstrek is a real all-road car and it is a great city car. Car has a character, it looks aggressive and young."

"I got the Limited model, with all the bells and whistles (navigation, moon roof, leather, remote start) and I have not regretted my purchase. I can comfortably take friends on long drives, but also easily fold down the back seats to throw the dogs in the back. Much quieter than my previous cars (Saturn, Honda). I was very impressed with details like the sound system and seat heaters. Between 55-65 mph, I get mid-30s mpg. In town, I get low 20s, closer to 20 if do a lot of sitting at stop-lights. This is also my first car without studded snow tires and I haven't had any sliding issues or scares! As a 20-something looking to buy my first new car, I believe I absolutely made the right choice and I get complimented on my car all the time!"
