Hot Subaru Crosstrek Cools Off Drops To 2nd Best-Selling Model In The Lineup
Even though it cooled off in April, the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is still on an impressive run for Subaru of America (SOA). The Crosstrek subcompact SUV dropped from first to second in the all-wheel-drive lineup but was still ahead of the refreshed 2022 Forester compact SUV, while the 2022 Outback midsize SUV barely pulled ahead.
Last month, Crosstrek pulled off a first-ever and was the number one selling model in the all-wheel-drive lineup, passing Forester and Outback. In April, the popular Outback had 16,510 models delivered to customers compared with Crosstrek’s 12,017 total sales for the month.
Crosstrek dropped 4.6 percent compared with April 2021, while the Outback surged ahead 5.0 percent in April. Year to date, the Outback has outsold Crosstrek by just two models, 49,482 compared with Crosstrek’s 49,480. The Crosstrek is still one of the few models in positive figures for the year, up 3.5 percent.
The Crosstrek will remain a top model for SOA
The Crosstrek will remain a top seller for SOA because it’s affordable, fuel-efficient, offers standard all-wheel-drive, has 8.7-inches of ground clearance, X-Mode for off-pavement, all-weather capability, and gets top safety scores.
What is the price of the 2022 Crosstrek?
Customers should be aware of a recent $750 price increase effective April 26, 2022. The base trim is now 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).
What is the Crosstrek fuel mileage?
With gas prices rising this summer (AAA average price is $4.30), the Crosstrek is a fuel-efficient SUV. The Subaru Crosstrek Sport and Limited trim levels use direct injection on its new 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine and get 27/34 city/highway mpg and 29 combined mpg. The standard 2.0-liter engine gets 28/33 mpg and 30 combined mpg with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) automatic, contributing to better mileage.
What are Crosstrek’s safety scores?
The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek was just rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and is now a Top Safety Pick winner for 11 consecutive years. The 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid earns the highest Top Safety Pick + award.
What’s next for the 2023 Crosstrek?
The 2023 Subaru Crosstrek gets a complete remodel, and sources close to Subaru say the Japanese automaker will launch a new Crosstrek Wilderness trim level in 2023. Look for Subaru to announce the next-generation Crosstrek soon. Stay tuned.
