Performance That's Ready for Any Adventure

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with a 2.0L 4-cylinder BOXER® engine. However, for 2018, the engine now features direct injection for increased power and impressive efficiency. This engine, paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) or Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) can produce 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque.

To get the most out of all your drives, it helps to have a fuel-efficient vehicle. The 2018 Crosstrek has an EPA-estimated 23 city/29 highway MPG with the 6MT, or 27 city/ 33 highway with the CVT.*

When you're traveling on less than favorable road conditions, you can feel at ease driving in the Subaru Crosstrek since it comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This system is designed with a balanced layout to continuously keep power routed to all four wheels. As a result, the vehicle will always have a solid grip in snow, rain, or on rough terrain.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek interior seats five with a 6-way manually adjustable driver's seat, 4-way manually adjustable front-passenger's seat, and 60/40 split flat-folding rear seatbacks.

The 2.0i Limited additionally comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission handle with orange stitching.
