2018 Subaru Crosstrek Performance



Crosstrek Engine


Unlike most subcompact SUVs, the Crosstrek is designed to offer brisk acceleration. The 152 horsepower, four-cylinder engine kicks into action and gets up to speed within an impressive time frame. Once you hit the highway, you will notice that the automatic transmission (CVT) and engine are more refined and quieter than the previous models. Crosstrek accelerates from 0-60mph in just 9 seconds and can hit top speeds of 123 mph.

Crosstrek Gas Mileage


Most test drivers opt for the Crosstrek's automatic transmission due to its well-timed, quiet performance as well as fuel efficiency. This transmission will offer 33 mpg when cruising on the highway and about 27 mpg within the city -both are way above average for SUVs in this class. The manual transmission model offers slightly lower fuel efficiency of 30 mpg on the highway and about 23 mpg within the city.
