2017 Subaru Crosstrek Review

When you live in the Middletown, Odessa, or Dover area, a fun weekend getaway is never far off. During the work week, though, you'll still have plenty of suburban driving to do. To fully enjoy both, you need an enduring crossover vehicle like the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek, something that's big on efficiency and amenities. In this Subaru Crosstrek review, our team at Winner Subaru will show you how.

Big Interior Comfort

While it may be a smaller SUV, the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek offers passengers more than enough space-97.5 cubic feet, to be exact. This volume includes 22.3 cubic feet of cargo space, so you'll always have enough room for luggage or other equipment.

All seating surfaces are trimmed in soft cloth, perfect for sitting back and relaxing. Drivers in particular will have a 6-way manually adjustable seat, while the front passenger will have a 4-way manually adjustable seat. The 60/40 rear seat can then split, in case you're in need of more cargo room.

To ensure you stay entertained during your drive, the Crosstrek comes with a STARLINK™ entertainment suite. This package starts with a 6.2-inch LCD screen and rearview camera. From there, you access your fully integrated smartphone or music streaming apps like Pandora or Aha radio.

Built for Efficiency

What makes Subaru so special is its innovative performance technologies. The Crosstrek exemplifies this advancement perfectly with its 2.0L 4-cylinder BOXER® engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD). Both these unique features aim to simplify powertrain function and offer drivers more efficiency and control.

Thanks to the flat, streamlined design of the BOXER®, the Crosstrek can maintain 30 highway MPG and 23 city MPG,1 all while producing 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Efficiency takes such precedence in this powertrain that it can qualify as a partial zero emissions vehicle.

To build on the Symmetrical AWD system, the Crosstrek is equipped with Vehicle Dynamics Control and Traction Control. When all these features combine, you're afforded optimum handling precision.

Enduring Safety Construction

When a vehicle has been awarded both a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it's for one main reason: rigid construction.

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek earns these commendations due to the hardiness of its ring-shaped reinforcement frame. When paired with an advanced airbag system with rollover sensors, this structure can deflect impacts away from the passenger cabin, shielding all occupants from force.

Furthermore, while the BOXER® engine comes with some excellent performance advantages, it can also benefit drivers greatly in terms of safety. In the event of a collision, the low center of gravity in the BOXER® will cause it to drop below the passenger cabin. This way, it can't harm occupants in any way.
