Subaru Reveals New Details About The All-New 2021 Crosstrek Sport - It's Coming June 9

The first image and a few more details about the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Sport have been revealed. The all-new model is coming next week.

Subaru of America just released the first image of the all-new 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Sport that’s coming soon. Subaru says they will reveal the new Crosstrek with more power on Tuesday, June 9. The image was released with an explanation saying the 2021 Crosstrek has been redesigned with new upgrades that deliver more horsepower, style, and safety.

We already knew some details about the new 2021 Crosstrek. Automotive News revealed Subaru of America CEO Tom Doll, speaking at a National Automobile Dealers Association meeting in February, said the newly-upgraded 2021 Crosstrek subcompact SUV would get a new 2.5-liter engine and be offered in two trim levels, Crosstrek Sport and Limited models.

The 2021 Crosstrek Sport will likely get the same 2.5-liter naturally aspirated Boxer engine that powers the 2020 Forester producing 182 horsepower. The Crosstrek 2.5i will also be coupled with a Lineartronic CVT 8-speed automatic with manual mode and paddle shifters. We’ll be surprised if it’s offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

We also know the Crosstrek Sport will get the 2.5-liter normally-aspirated 2.5-liter engine because it’s already listed on EPA fuel mileage estimates for 2021. The new model with the 2.5-liter Boxer will get an estimated 24/34 city/highway mpg and 29 combined mpg. The EPA doesn’t list the new Sport with a 6-speed manual like 2020 Crosstrek base and Premium trims now offer.

The Crosstrek Sport could get similar upgrades like the new Forester Sport with Dual-function X-Mode with Hill Descent Control, SI-DRIVE with Sport Sharp mode, Black 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, roof rails with integrated tie-downs, front, rear and side under guards with colored accents, and gloss black and additional colored exterior accents.

We have an idea of what the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek pricing could be. The 2020 Crosstrek Premium trim begins at $25,555 with a CVT. The new Forester Sport has a $1,600 price difference over the Forester Premium trim. This would make the all-new Crosstrek Sport MSRP around $26,145 including destination.

The newly upgraded 2021 Subaru Crosstrek Sport and Limited models with more horsepower, styling changes, and new safety technology will be announced by Subaru of America on June 9. Torque News will bring you the information as soon as it’s available.

Riddle: how can a car with a CVT, also have an 8-speed transmission?
Answer: it can't!! By defintion, a CVT has an infinite number of gear ratios (not a limited, fixed number (like the words "8-speed" imply).
