2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Pricing And New Upgrades Announced

Subaru of America announced pricing and new upgrades for the 2021 Crosstrek Hybrid. Check out the details here.

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid trim is announced and gets a few new upgrades and a small price increase. The Crosstrek plug-in hybrid is only available in North America and limited quantities. Subaru of America gives the 2021 Crosstrek Hybrid a $200 price increase ($36,395) includes destination and delivery fees.

The Crosstrek Hybrid gets few upgrades for the 2021 model change. The Hybrid trim receives a new front fascia design and suspension upgrades over the previous model. Subaru says the suspension now features retuned coils and dampers "optimized for a better ride, handling, and steering response."

The Crosstrek Plug-In Hybrid still only offers up to 17 miles of pure electric driving, the same as the previous model. The SUV delivers an EPA-estimated 35 MPG/90 MPGe and 480-mile range.

Subaru offers the Crosstrek Hybrid with one option package. For $2,500, you get a power moonroof, heated steering wheel, the Starlink 8.0-inch multimedia navigation system with voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom, and a premium Harman Kardon 8-speaker sound system with 432-watt equivalent amplifier.

The Crosstrek Hybrid comes standard with the brand's EyeSight driver-assist safety technology. Hybrid trims come loaded with safety tech with Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure, Sway Warning, and Lead Vehicle Start Alert.

The electrified model also comes with steering responsive headlights that illuminate curves as the vehicle steers into them. Additional safety features include reverse automatic braking, high beam assist, and blind-spot detection with lane change assist and cross-traffic alert.

The Hybrid trim also features a pedestrian alert system that provides an audible warning to pedestrians within the vehicle's proximity when traveling below 20 mph.

The Hybrid also comes standard with all-wheel-drive, 8.7-inches of ground clearance, and X-Mode for enhanced off-pavement performance.

The Crosstrek Hybrid is Subaru of America's only electrified model. More hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid models are coming, and an all-electric model arrives in 2022.

Subaru offers the Crosstrek Plug-In Hybrid in limited quantities, and they are not available in all U.S. states. Subaru offers the model in California and the Northeastern states. The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will arrive in Subaru showrooms this winter.

Subaru's first hybrid model? Who is going to want to be a guinea pig for that when other car companies have been working on hybrids for years? Are they borrowing any technology or is Subaru doing this in their own?

My daughter is looking to buy the 2021 CrossTrek Hybrid however she lives in an apartment in Chicago and won't have readily available access to electrical power to plug the car in on a regular basis. This means she may go days and/or weeks (worse case) on using just the gasoline engine alone. I've read on the Subaru website that the gas engine recharges the batteries. But my question is will this car NOT being charged all that often by plugging it into power degrade the batteries on the vehicle and cause longer term battery problems?
