The Crosstrek is a hot all-wheel-drive SUV for Subaru of America, and retailers can’t get their hands on enough of them.

“Limited inventory of Subaru models led to an 8.7 percent reduction in sales in January compared to 2021,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “Both the Crosstrek and Forester were refreshed for 2022, and dealers have limited inventory of these popular models and are now charging above MSRP for the Crosstrek.”

What is the price of the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek?

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek comes in five trim levels for customers. The base trim is priced from $23,570, Premium ($24,720), Sport ($27,920), Limited ($29,420) and Crosstrek Hybrid ($37,895). Prices include destination and delivery fees that increase +$75 ($1,125).
