2025 Subaru Crosstrek Review: A Redesigned Hybrid with More Power and Features – The 2025 Subaru Crosstrek is a completely redesigned model that offers more power, features, and efficiency than its previous generation. The Crosstrek is a subcompact SUV that combines an all-wheel-drive vehicle’s versatility with a hybrid’s fuel economy. The 2025 model features a new exterior and interior design, a new hybrid powertrain, and new technology and safety features.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Subaru Crosstrek has a sleek, modern exterior design reflecting its performance and capability. The front fascia has been updated with a new grille, headlights, and bumper, giving the vehicle a more aggressive and sporty look. The body is more angular and aerodynamic, with a sloping roofline and sculpted fenders. The rear end has also been redesigned with new taillights, spoiler, and diffuser. The Crosstrek comes with 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels, depending on the trim level, and offers a range of color options.
The interior of the 2025 Subaru Crosstrek is spacious and comfortable, with high-quality materials and technology. The cabin has a minimalist and modern design, with a large touchscreen display as the infotainment system. Along with other amenities like radio, temperature control, and navigation, the system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The seats are supportive and adjustable, with optional leather upholstery and heating and ventilation. With 20.8 cubic feet of room behind the back seats and 55.3 cubic feet when the seats are folded down, the Crosstrek also has a lot of load capacity.
The 2025 Subaru Crosstrek offers two powertrain options: a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a hybrid drivetrain. The 2.5-liter engine produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, while the hybrid drivetrain combines an electric motor with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to provide 149 horsepower and 149 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable gearbox (CVT) and Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system are matched with both powertrains.
The hybrid powertrain also offers better fuel efficiency than the standard engine, with an estimated 35 miles per gallon combined, compared to 29 miles per gallon combined for the standard engine. The hybrid powertrain also has an all-electric driving range of up to 17 miles, which can be helpful for short trips or city driving.
Release Date and Price
According to some sources, the 2025 Subaru Crosstrek is expected to be released in late 2024 or early 2025. The new model’s price is not yet confirmed, but it is likely to be slightly higher than the current model, which starts at $22,245 for the base trim level and goes up to $35,345 for the hybrid limited trim level. The price may also vary depending on the features and options that the customers choose.
