Vehicle Profile: 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
The crossover segment may be crowded and welcoming new members daily, but nobody can beat Subaru at their own game. The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek comes packed to the gills with industry-leading standard safety features, brilliant entertainment options, range-topping all-wheel drive fuel economy and performance designed for adventure.
Every 2020 Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to tackle rough terrain, Active Torque Vectoring to make sure power is delivered to wheels as they need it, and the iconic Subaru Boxer® engine. When paired with either a six-speed manual or a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission, this 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine belts out 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque.
Despite its off-road-ready performance statistics, the 2020 Crosstrek delivers competitive fuel economy regardless of which model you choose. If you opt for a manual transmission, you can expect to see 22 MPG in the city and 29 on the highway.* Models equipped with a CVT are more efficient at 27 MPG city and 33 MPG highway.* If you crave the feeling of manual control but love the ease of a CVT, you can add wheel-mounted manual paddle shifters to select trims. For the best fuel economy, go for the Crosstrek Hybrid, which delivers up to 90 MPGe and a total driving range of 480 miles.*
If Subaru develops a vehicle, they’re going to do it right. That’s why, in addition to its high performance and excellent fuel economy, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is stuffed with innovative technology meant to make your drive more enjoyable and connected than ever. Each and every trim level comes standard with the Subaru STARLINK™ infotainment system, which you can control via a full-color 6.5-inch touchscreen. You can even connect all of your smartphone’s core features directly to your Crosstrek with Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay®.
In addition to entertainment systems, Subaru outfitted the 2020 Crosstrek with features to make your crossover versatile enough to suit all of your needs, whatever they may be. You’ll enjoy tried and true functions like power windows, door locks and side mirrors, 60/40-split fold-down rear seats and a telescoping steering column alongside more innovative additions. For instance, the multi-function gauge display includes fuel economy information, and the automatic security system can immobilize the engine in the event of attempted theft.
If there’s one thing Subaru is known for, it’s outstanding safety. The 2020 Crosstrek is no different, as the automaker includes the award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist suite of technology standard on every model. Also standard are the potentially lifesaving Rear Seat Reminder, the highly convenient Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Automatic Wheel ID Registration, and the perfectly customizable SI-DRIVE system.
Higher trim levels include innovative standard and available safety systems like Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Hill Descent Control and Subaru STARLINK™ safety features. Depending on the model you choose, you can even make use of features like headlights that automatically activate when you turn on your windshield wipers. If that’s not enough to convince you that the Crosstrek is a fortress on wheels, the Subaru Crosstrek has earned the highest honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Top Safety Pick+, every year since 2015.
Between its thrilling performance, high-tech interior and confidence-inspiring safety features, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is the modern crossover you’ve been waiting for. The 2020 Crosstrek is expected to hit dealerships late in the fall of 2019.
