EPA Leaks 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Information - Here’s What’s Coming

The EPA has leaked fuel mileage information and transmission options on the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek. Here is what’s coming soon for customers.

The EPA has posted the latest fuel milage information on the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek before Subaru of America has announced the new model change. The data reveals no fuel mileage change for the 2022 Crosstrek with the 2.0-liter Boxer engine. The information also indicates the 2022 Crosstrek will still come with a fully synchronized 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Base trim will come standard with the 6-speed manual gearbox. Premium trim levels will also come with a manual transmission. Customers can get a Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) as an option on Premium trims. All other trim levels, 2022 Crosstrek Sport, Limited, and Hybrid, will come standard with a Lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.

What is the fuel mileage of the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek?

The Subaru Crosstrek uses direct injection on its new 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine and gets 27/34 city/highway mpg and 29 combined mpg. The 2.0-liter engine with the 6-speed standard transmission gets an estimated 22/29 city/highway mpg and 25 combined mpg. The 2.0-liter engine gets 28/33 mpg and 30 combined mpg with the CVT automatic, contributing to better mileage. The EPA did not have information on the 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid.

What’s new for the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek model change?

The 2022 Crosstrek is in the fifth year of its production life cycle and will come with few changes, if any, and possibly a slight price increase. There could be minor changes with a new exterior color, new wheels, and a shuffling of option packages. The 2023 Crosstrek will be the model to watch as it gets a complete remodel.

The 2023 Crosstrek will get a remodel from the ground up with significant upgrades in safety technology, a new interior and exterior styling, and an all-new Crosstrek Wilderness trim level for outdoor enthusiasts. You can check out the further 2023 model information here.

When will the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek arrive in U.S. showrooms?

Subaru should announce the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek model change this fall, and the subcompact SUV will be delayed because of recent plant shutdowns and production slowdowns. Customers who want a 2022 Crosstrek will have to wait as new models may not arrive until early next year. Stay tuned.

I get way better than the EPA rating with a 2016 2.0L/CVT Crosstrek. I've averaged 45+MPG on my 50-mile commute a couple times, but I can often get between 38-42MPG per tank. I usually get at least 30MPG per tank, even if I've been romping on it a bit in the city. Set the cruise around the speed limit, and stay out of the left lane (and the exit/entrance lane of a 3+lane hwy). I also use a dry, cotton, hi-flow airfilter setup from DNA (off Amazon).
