The Crosstrek is an SUV alternative worth considering, and the new model promises significant upgrades over its predecessor.
With a redesigned Impreza sedan and hatchback rolling into showrooms, Subaru is updating a popular model based on the Impreza.
No, we’re not talking about the WRX, but rather the Crosstrek pseudo-crossover.
Taking a standard all-wheel drive car and giving it some SUV-like styling cues worked pretty well with the Outback, so Subaru gave the Impreza the same treatment and launched the first-generation Crosstrek (also known as the XV Crosstrek) in 2012.
Debuting at the 2017 New York Auto Show, the second-generation 2018 Crosstrek switches to the new Impreza platform, gaining some upgrades in the process.
Like the recently redesigned Impreza, the Crosstrek is slightly larger than before, but features more expressive styling in an attempt to jazz things up a bit.
