Subaru Prices All-New 2018 Crosstrek From $21,795 [30 Pics]

Subaru announced the pricing of the new 2018 Crosstrek, the second model in the company’s range to take advantage of their fresh Global Platform.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will be offered in three trim levels: 2.0i Base, Premium and Limited, when it arrives at dealerships nationwide late this summer.

Prices kick off at $21,795, only $100 more over the previous model, while for the first time Subaru will offer the Lineartronic CVT option on the 2.0i Base models.

All models will come with a six-speed manual or the aforementioned CVT, as well as Subaru’s trademark Symmetrical all-wheel drive system. When fitted with the manual, the new Crosstrek is able to return a fuel economy of 23 city/29 highway and 25 combined mpg, with the CVT models being slightly more fuel efficient at 27 city/33 highway and 29 combined mpg.

The new Subaru Crosstrek also benefits from a 8.7-inch ground clearance, allowing it to be more versatile in both off-road and city driving conditions. Under the bonnet lies a revised 2.0-litre boxer engine with direct injection and 152hp.

Entry-level models get a 6.5-inch Starlink infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 60/40-split fold-down rear seat and more. Premium models add Subaru’s Connected Services, heated front seats, windshield wiper de-icer, and heated exterior mirrors as well as on/off automatic headlights linked to windshield wiper operation, a sound insulated windshield and Welcome Lighting and more.

Moving up to the range-topping Limited models, customers will get a standard CVT, an 8.0-inch Multimedia Plus system, a set of 18-inch machine finished alloy wheels, Keyless Access with Push-Button Start and Pin Code Access, 6-way Power Driver’s seat and new Steering Responsive Headlights which can illuminate curves as the vehicle steers into them. Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also standard, among other.

Subaru offers the Eyesight pack as an option and that includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure and Sway Warning.

    What! 152hp from a 2.0 liter engine?
    Why don’t they turbo or supercharge it to give it 300 hp?
