Back in 2013, Subaru introduced the Crosstrek, a compact crossover that was based on the Impreza but with more off-road capability, equipment, and a meaner appearance. The 2016 version of the Crosstrek offers a visual facelift, mechanical updates, and other revisions.
Here’s more of what you can expect out of this vehicle:
- It boasts an elegant interior, with comfortable leather seats, a large LCD screen, and the cabin has enough space for both head and leg room even for the back passengers.
- The body has been widened, and the front grille has been enlarged to give it its “mean” appearance. The back and front bumpers are made with steel while the rest of the body is made with lighter material to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle.
- More color options are available.
Under the hood
- This Crosstrek comes in three engine options: a 4 cylinder 2.0-liter engine with 148 horsepower, a 10 kW electric engine, and a hybrid engine.
Overall, the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is a stylish car equipped with current technology, and has a very good performance and value fuel economy. There are more good news to be announced when this vehicle is released early in 2016; check with your local dealerships around New Orleans.
