Subaru Crosstrek News

The second-generation 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is a subcompact SUV that gives consumers a vehicle with standard all-wheel-drive, a raised ride height (8.7-inches) and loaded with safety technology. The Crosstrek received a complete remodel in 2018 and gets a few new upgrades for the 2020 model change.

New for 2020, all models with a CVT get Auto Stop-Start system fuel-saving technology, and Subaru SI-Drive driver-selectable powertrain management system with Intelligent and Sport modes and steering wheel control switches. An automatic climate control system is now standard on Base and Premium trims. Redesigned rear lights are new on all models. The Base trim also gets a new front console USB input port.

All Crosstrek CVT trims now come standard with the brand’s EyeSight driver assist technology. Subaru also added a Rear Seat Reminder on all Crosstrek models for 2020 with a CVT and is designed to help prevent child and/or pet entrapment by alerting the driver to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek Pricing
The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is offered in four trim levels: Base, Premium, Limited, and Hybrid. Pricing on the Crosstrek begins at $27,395. The top-selling Premium trim is priced from $23,195, Limited has a starting MSRP of $27,395, and Hybrid models start at $35,145. Destination and delivery add $1,010.
