2017 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Compact SUV/Crossover

2017 Subaru Crosstrek

Best Compact SUV/Crossover:
2017 Subaru Crosstrek

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek takes home this year's trophy for the lowest projected 5-Year Cost to Own in its class. The sporty compact crossover is a suitable wagon alternative, and a fine choice for those who enjoy the great outdoors, want the all-weather confidence that all-wheel drive provides, and like the idea of a roomy, pet-friendly space that's easy to wash out after a camping trip. Based on the tried-and-true Subaru Impreza compact car, the Crosstrek offers added ride height in addition to a versatile interior, with up to 52 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats.

The Crosstrek also offers an impressive value: not only does its base price start below $23,000, but at that price it comes nicely equipped with all-wheel drive, extensive safety equipment, Bluetooth, cruise control and a rearview camera. More value awaits at the gas station, where with the optional automatic transmission you can get 33 highway mpg, and a range of up to 461 miles on a tank of gas.

Driving the Crosstrek feels like driving the Impreza, but as we noted in the expert review, "there are differences. The Crosstrek rides higher than its sedan and hatchback siblings, giving it more lean in corners, but also making it better at absorbing bumps along with its off-road ability."

The fuel-efficient powertrain, versatile cabin, adventure-ready attitude and bevy of features are available in the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek for a low entry fee. Add in Subaru's strong reputation for quality and reliability, and you have a winning recipe for 5-Year CTO.
