Why should I buy a Subaru Crosstrek?

With gas prices on the rise, fuel mileage is something you can love or hate about the vehicle you drive. Crosstrek delivers excellent fuel mileage.

CR says, "The Crosstrek delivers good fuel economy, impressive ride comfort, and competent and enjoyable handling. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and CVT return 29 mpg overall, which is quite good."

Subaru now offers the new Crosstrek Sport and Limited models with a bigger 2.5-liter engine. The larger 2.5-liter engine gets an impressive 27/34 city/highway and 29 combined mpg.

The Subaru Crosstrek also scored high in CR's annual auto survey for reliability. They found they have been relatively problem-free, as reported by car owners in their survey. CR ranks Crosstrek number one overall of fourteen subcompact sport-utility vehicles.

What is the price of the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek?

Subaru recently raised the price of the 2022 Crosstrek by $800, but it's still affordable. The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek comes in five trim levels, and 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 ($1,175).

The 2022 Crosstrek keeps owners the most satisfied, and it's loved the most of any Subaru model. Owners said if they had to do it all over again, they would repurchase the subcompact all-wheel-drive vehicle.
