New Subaru Crosstrek 2024 Redesign, Concept, Rumors – The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek was initially introduced as the XV Crosstrek, and it is now in its second generation, following strong sales. The Crosstrek has long been regarded as one of the best subcompact crossovers on the market because of its unique safety systems, surprising off-road skills, deceptively spacious interior, and inexpensive price tag. Subaru has addressed Crosstrek’s major shortcoming for the 2024 model year by adding a larger 2.5-liter engine with 182 horsepower while keeping the CVT transmission and Subaru’s renowned AWD technology. Additionally, there’s a cheaper base engine with a manual transmission and a hybrid model. Except for the dreadfully poor speed, everything worked perfectly.
If you’re looking for a compact SUV, the Subaru Crosstrek is a terrific choice. With space for five passengers and plenty of baggage space, the Subaru Crosstrek handles rough roads with ease. All models of the Crosstrek come standard with all-wheel drive, making it an excellent choice for those who live in snowy areas. The cabin is well-built, with plenty of driver assistance technology and an easy-to-use infotainment system. The Crosstrek is also relatively safe in a crash.
redesign of the Subaru Crosstrek 2024
The Subaru Crosstrek lineup for the 2024 model year has undergone significant changes. The underpowered engine in last year’s gas-only model was one of our main gripes, but Subaru has addressed this by offering a 2.5-liter Boxer engine with a more usable 182 horsepower. It is standard on the Sport and Limited models. As a new Sport model, it gets an all-new X Mode (including Snow/Dirt mode), unique interior and exterior styling, and StarTex upholstery that is hard-wearing but breathable. Adaptive cruise control with lane-centering has been added to Subaru’s EyeSight suite.
Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Hybrid are this year’s Subaru Crosstrek trim levels. A 176.5-inch length; a width of 71 inches; and a height of 63.6 inches, including the roof rails, are typical to all trims. Only the Crosstrek Hybrid has lower roof rails, giving it a height of 62.8 inches. A handy 8.7 inches of ground clearance distinguishes the Crosstrek from any other car or hatchback. Eight inches of ground clearance compared to the Mazda CX-30’s more road-oriented design. At 3,117 lbs, the Crosstrek manual is the lightest of the two models, while the Crosstrek Hybrid is the heaviest.
The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek will have a challenging and practical design language typical of the brand. There’s plenty of space for five people in this vehicle, and the seats are supportive and comfortable on all sides. Even if the seats have distinctive orange stitching and the carbon fiber trims seem nice, it’s a boring car for the money. The Crosstrek’s lack of flat-folding rear seats, as found in several of its competitors, limits the vehicle’s utility. There is a lot of support and comfort in the leather seats in the higher-end grades.
The Subaru Crosstrek SUV has a cargo capacity of 20.8 cubic feet behind its rear seats. The Honda HR-V and other smaller SUVs have a larger trunk, but the Subaru Crosstrek has enough room for a week’s worth of groceries in the back. Using the 60/40 split-folding back seats, you can free up 55.3 cubic feet of space. The hybrid, on the other hand, is less accommodating. In terms of space, it has 15.9 cubic feet behind the second row and 43.1 cubic feet when the back chairs are folded flat. The Premium and above trims include a rear load tray and a retractable cover for the cargo compartment. There isn’t much storage room inside, but there is a center console storage compartment, a lockable glovebox, dual front cupholders, and a bottle holder in each door in every trim. The rear seat armrest folds down to reveal two more cupholders in the top two models.
Although Crosstrek’s base 152-hp four-cylinder engine is loud, it doesn’t provide much performance. There is a noticeable amount of effort required to reach highway speeds regardless of whether you go for the base manual transmission or the optional automatic. In our tests, automatic models took 9.2 seconds longer to get to 60 mph.
The 2.0-liter model’s zero-to-60-mph time was shaved by 0.9 seconds in the plug-in hybrid model. The optional 182-hp, 2.5-liter engine, also featured in the Legacy sedan and Outback station wagon is mainly responsible for this lack of energy. Because of its calm ride and well-weighted steering, the Crosstrek feels secure in turns. Firm but not harsh, the suspension quickly absorbs larger bumps. While using a 120-volt household outlet to charge, the plug-in hybrid model can take up to five hours; it only takes two hours when using a 240-volt outlet. The battery-alone range is only 17 miles, so purchasers shouldn’t expect to be able to make their entire trip on electric power alone.
Price and Release Date of the Subaru Crosstrek 2024
The basic model of the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek is priced at $22,245 in the United States. At $23,295 and $26,495, respectively, are the Premium and Sport models. Subaru Crosstrek Limited models start at $27,995. The lone Crosstrek with a hybrid powertrain is also the priciest, retailing at $35,345. Because of this, the Crosstrek Hybrid’s $4,502 federal tax credit makes it a lot more competitive with the Limited. A $1,050 destination charge is also not included in this pricing. There may also be other state-specific incentives.
The CVT transmission will add $1,350 to the price of the Subaru Crosstrek in the United States for the base and premium models. The CVT is standard on all other variants. Subaru Crosstrek models for 2024 will begin shipping to dealerships in the first quarter of that year.
