2023 Subaru Crosstrek in RI

2023 subaru crosstrek in desert khaki


The adventure-ready Subaru Crosstrek is back for 2023 with all of the same attributes that have made it a strong seller for the previous ten model years. This outdoorsy compact crossover can help you navigate challenging terrain thanks to its 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. It’s also a respectable everyday driver with plenty of comforts and conveniences, as well as an assortment of must-have safety features. Couple that with its spacious interior and available manual transmission (a rare find in this class), and you have yourself quite the versatile vehicle. For 2023, a new Special Edition variant joins the Crosstrek lineup. It’s distinguished by its exclusive Desert Khaki exterior paint, 17-inch wheels, and dark gray interior with two-tone (black and red) upholstery.

The 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Base blends necessary features with a few extra, and it’s eligible for some optional upgrades as well. The highlights of its standard equipment list are keyless entry, automatic climate control, fabric upholstery, roof rails (black), auto-up/down driver and front passenger windows, a front USB port, bottle holders in the door panels, a 60/40-split fold-flat rear seatback, and black 17-inch wheels. The base version of the STARLINK multimedia system has a 6.5-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming, and a four-speaker audio system. If you’re ordering your Crosstrek Base, you can elect to add two options: X-Mode, a special drive system for offroad terrain, and the Subaru EyeSight driver-assist technology suite. The latter will furnish a pre-collision braking system, pre-collision throttle management, lane departure and sway warning, and advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering.


The Premium adds character with orange contrast stitching on its cloth seats, while a nice list of upgrades helps it earn its name. Those additional features are automatic headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a second front USB port, illuminated vanity mirrors, a rear cargo tray, a retractable cargo-area cover, and some infotainment bonuses: SiriusXM satellite radio and Travel Link, another pair of speakers, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. It’s also ready for inclement weather with standard fog lights, heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, and a windshield wiper de-icer. This trim also qualifies for the available X-Mode and Subaru EyeSight, as well as a power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a power tilt/sliding moonroof, and proximity entry with push-button start.


The Sport gets all of the Premium trim’s options (except for the moonroof, which remains optional) as standard equipment, along with some aesthetic changes such as a trim-specific grille, more aggressive wheel arches, 17-inch wheels in dark gray, and black gunmetal exterior accents. Subaru also gives it StarTex water-repellent upholstery with yellow contrast stitching, paddle shifters, exterior mirrors with built-in turn-signal indicators, and two USB charging ports for the back seat. The Subaru EyeSight driver-assist suite is included, with the option of adding a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. The STARLINK Plus infotainment system can likewise be upgraded with an 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio, hands-free text messaging, and voice recognition.


The Limited drops the unique aesthetics of the Sport trim (the special exterior features and StarTex upholstery), getting leather upholstery with orange contrast stitching and 18-inch wheels with black finish instead. It’s also generously loaded with steering-responsive LED headlights, LED fog lights, a power driver’s seat, a color multifunction display, and a folding rear armrest with dual cupholders. The Subaru EyeSight bundle is enhanced with a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and reverse automatic emergency braking. The STARLINK options listed for the Sport trim come standard on the Limited (the 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio, hands-free texting, and voice recognition). Buyers can opt to upgrade the system with navigation and a Harman Kardon sound system with eight speakers, and the power moonroof is still offered as an option.
