It’s hard to believe, but the Subaru Crosstrek turns ten years old. The Subaru Crosstrek was first announced in the U.S. in 2012 and arrived as a 2013 model year. Subaru Corporation announced a new 2022 Subaru Crosstrek 10th anniversary model to mark the special occasion. But customers in the U.S. can only look and not touch.
Customers in Japan can get the new 2022 Crosstrek Advance Style Edition commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Subaru XV’s birth. The new Crosstrek comes with a new exterior paint color called Sapphire Blue Pearl. And heated seats are standard on the 10th-anniversary model.
The special 2022 Crosstrek subcompact SUV comes with dark gun metallic 18-inch aluminum wheels; the front grille, rear bumper guard, shark fin antenna, and roof spoiler are also painted dark gun metallic.
Inside, the heated seats come in a new Tricot synthetic leather seat in gray charcoal/light gray with black, yellow stitching.
The 5th generation Impreza, announced in October 2016, is turning 30 years old, and it gets a unique special edition model too. Subaru says they will also offer customers a new 30th anniversary 2022 Impreza sedan and hatchback model. The new Impreza is also off-limits for U.S. customers.
The Japan-spec 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Advance Style 10th Anniversary Edition comes with standard all-wheel-drive, EyeSight Safety Plus with expanded visibility, and a Lineartronic Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT).
What’s next for the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek?
Customers in the U.S. can look forward to the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness subcompact SUV. When will Subaru launch the all-new Crosstrek Wilderness? Outdoor enthusiasts will have to wait for the Crosstrek to get the Wilderness upgrades.
Sources close to Subaru revealed the automaker will wait for the next-generation Crosstrek coming in 2023 to launch the all-new Wilderness trim. Subaru of America will be the first to get the rugged 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness. The Camden, N.J. automaker will likely launch the off-pavement model in the summer of 2023.
Customers in the U.S. can only look at and not touch the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Advance Style 10th-anniversary Edition, but better things are coming in 2023.
