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 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek looks a lot like the Impreza compact sedan/hatchback upon which it's based, but the changes made to it are more than cosmetic. The capable little crossover SUV offers up 8.7 inches of ground clearance, just as much as the bigger Subaru Outback, and even more than some "real" off-road vehicles like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. This year, the Subaru XV Crosstrek gets Subaru's EyeSight suite of active safety gear, which uses cameras and other sensors to incorporate active cruise control, lane-departure warnings and pre-collision braking. Along with a new base model and a new audio system, the XV Crosstrek and Crosstrek Hybrid are well suited to go head-to-head with the likes of the new Honda HR-V and other small SUVs.

"I'm only a couple of weeks in and I do love it. Can't wait to take it off road or drive in the snow when the time comes. The car is squatty, and I love that. The CVT is new to me and I don't punch it or push it, but maybe that's it... I'm still getting used to it and I'm being too careful with it because the engine does rev pretty high during normal acceleration getting on the freeway. That's the only thing. I feel if it had another 15-20 horses, it would a pretty big difference. I read about the Hybrid version for next year which will give it a 15 horsepower push which may be just what it needs to improve the driving experience. I know I may be nitpicky, but that's how I feel. I'm pretty sure once I get to take it off road or drive in the snow, I will forget all about my engine critique. This is my first Subaru and I feel so good in it. The drive is solid and comfy."

"Have been pretty happy I bought this car. It's ultimate purpose is to replace my full sized 4x4 pickup. I am not very impressed with the computed fuel efficiency of this car. It is always off 6-8% and reading higher fuel economy than is actual. Other than that, I really like the car so far. We will see how it looks 150K miles down the road. I plan on going to 16 inch wheels for winter so I can go to a narrower cross-section tire for Winter snow and ice."

"I recently purchased the Crosstrek and I am very happy with it. I downsized from a Ford Explorer to a compact SUV mainly because of the gas mileage and I needed a truck-like auto that handles city driving well and fits into tight parking spots. The cargo room is good too, maybe not as big as the Mazda X5 or Subaru Forester but it is enough for my small family. I absolutely LOVE the Crosstrek. It drives like a car, I guess due to the all wheel drive and 17 inch wheels. It drives well over Texas dirt roads. I read that critics think there could be more horsepower, but how fast does one need to go in bumper to bumper traffic? One thing I learned from owning a large truck and small foreign car is: More power=Less Gas Mileage; Less Power=More Gas Mileage, you decide what is most important for you."
