2022 Subaru Crosstrek Is Hot In July - The Small SUV Just Had A Record Month

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is again the star in the lineup for Subaru of America. The hot Crosstrek sets a new record in July.


The Subaru Crosstrek is due for a remodel, but Subaru of America (SOA) doesn't have to bring the next-generation model yet. The Crosstrek subcompact SUV is selling too well, even without a remodel. SOA reported that the hot Crosstrek is the top performer in the all-wheel-drive lineup and set a new sales record.

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek continues to sizzle hot this summer, with 14,076 subcompact SUVs delivered to customers in July. That's a 5.0 percent increase over July 2021 sales (13,402). But Crosstrek set a record with its best July ever.

Crosstrek remains the second best-selling all-wheel-drive model for SOA, with 84,126 models delivered to customers through the first seven months compared with 77,616 sold in 2021. Crosstrek is just 1,853 model sales behind the number one Outback midsize SUV.

Crosstrek is one of the few models with a sales increase in 2022, up 8.4 percent this year. The Ascent 3-Row SUV is the only other Subaru SUV up in 2022 (+6.0%). BRZ is up 162.3 percent.

What sets the Crosstrek apart?

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek subcompact SUV rides higher with extra ground clearance (8.7-inches) than other small SUVs, and all trim levels come standard with Subaru's Symmetrical all-wheel-drive.

The Sport and Limited trims also have a new dual-function X-Mode for added off-pavement capabilities. The new system has settings for Snow and Dirt mode to the new Deep Snow/Deep Mud Mode and is best for sand where traction is compromised.


Even with a recent price increase, the 2022 Crosstrek is affordable. The base trim is priced from $24,320, Premium ($25,470), Sport ($28,670), Limited ($30,170) and Crosstrek Hybrid ($37,520). Prices include destination and delivery fees that increase ($1,175).

Crosstrek gets excellent fuel mileage

The 2.0-liter CVT models achieve EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28/33 city/highway and 30 combined mpg. The 6-speed manual models are rated 22/29 city/highway and 25 combined mpg. The 2.5-liter Boxer engine achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27/34 city/highway and 29 combined mpg.
