2018 Subaru Crosstrek Manual Test: Hipster Cred, Better Car

The new Subaru is a new addition to the family. Like most Subarus it has excellent handling but unlike the sport models, it lacks in acceleration. It’s also doesn’t have the best gas mileage, which is odd for a car designed for the more environmentally conscious Gen Y & Z entry car crowd. Though the car weighs only 93 pounds more than its predecessor it feels substantial and a bit more heavy.

  • Crosstrek is an enhanced version of the Impreza which impresses.
  • Value priced, comfortable, and powerful car that has zazz.
