2016 Subaru Crosstrek – The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek has the profile of a small, sporty hatchback the most stocky stance of a utility vehicle. If you look at its skill set, some SUVs are outdone by it with pretenses that are much more robust — in generally modest, Subaru fashion that is functional.
2016 Subaru Crosstrek Review
The Crosstrek (Subaru dropped the “XV” for 2016) is based on the Subaru Impreza five-door hatchback, but its increased ground clearance, beefed-up suspension, and added protection, fender flares, front and rear fascias, and roof rack add up to a different appearance. It’s surprisingly distinct, though it essentially keeps the same sheet metal.

The version variety can be considered as a good pair of cross trainer shoes: sufficiently durable to manage various different uses, but not specialized to any one special duty cycle at the expense of any others in the same vein. It is been a surprise hit at Subaru, with shoppers are picking it over a wide variety of small crossover versions. Subaru has had to lose some supplies of conventional (and less pricey) Imprezas to make room for all the utility variants its customers are snapping up.
2016 Subaru Crosstrek Exterior
As I mentioned previously, the Special Edition Crosstrek is based on the 2.0i Premium trimming, which means it comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive, 17-inch alloy wheels, and the typical 8.7 inches ground clearance. The Special Edition is painted in Pure Red and featured paint -matched folding mirrors that have integrated turn signals. There are special improvements to the outside or no other changes, thus let’s move on to the interior.

Subaru is seriously interested in ensuring the Crosstrek comes well -equipped from the factory. Crosstreks comes in two trim levels: Premium and Limited. Premium-specced cars come with lots of useful attributes. The standard stereo has a USB port, iPod controllability, an auxiliary input jack, six loudspeakers and Bluetooth connectivity with live audio streaming.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the Crosstrek a complete 5-star rating; it earned four out of five stars in the front crash test, five in the side-impact test and four in the rollover test. The Crosstrek also ranks in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety evaluations at the top of its category and was picked as a Top Safety Pick.

2016 Subaru Crosstrek Engine
Our latest 2.0-liter test auto, however, was equipped with Subaru’s elective Lineartronic constantly variable automatic ($1000), which adds 168 pounds to the bundle. At 10.3 seconds to 60 miles per hour, the CVT-equipped XV Crosstrek’s acceleration fell somewhere between the breathless squirt of a Toyota Prius and a Chevrolet Spark CVT—not just rapid company.
While solid driving dynamics, high-tech safety features and a fuel-friendly all-wheel-drive system help make the Crosstrek a crossover that is good, it’s the vehicles overall capability that takes it from good to amazing. Upon taking the opportunity to go off road in waterlogged, gravel and muddy trails and upping the ante on some routes that are rugged, the Crosstrek was confidence inspiring and managed the route without difficulty. It’s also worth pointing out the compact crossover’s 8.7-inches of ground clearance is more than any of its rivals, except the costly Jeep Renegade Trailhawk.
