2018 Subaru Crosstrek Performance

2018 Subaru CrosstrekThe 2018 Crosstrek has a sporty engine under the hood that's built to provide you with both a fun and efficient drive. It runs on a 2.0L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque.

The Dual Active Valve Control System helps with its efficiency and gives it the ability to get up to an EPA-estimated 27 MPG city and 33 MPG highway.

This power under the hood can help if you're looking to take a couple bikes or ATVs on your next vacation. The 2018 Crosstrek has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.

Working alongside this powertrain is a couple of optional transmissions. There's a standard 6-speed manual transmission, but there's also an available Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with 7-speed manual-mode and paddle shifters. This lets you control the gear shifts without a clutch.

The Crosstrek interior has a passenger volume of 100.9 cubic feet. That gives the driver and front passenger 38.9 inches of front headroom and 43.1 inches of front legroom.

The spacious backseat has 38 inches of rear headroom and 36.5 inches of rear legroom. There's also 55.2 inches of rear hip room and 55.6 inches of rear shoulder room for a comfortable ride when there's three passengers in the back.

The trunk features 20.8 cubic feet of space for storage, but you can get up to 55.3 cubic feet of cargo room if you lower the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats.

Inside, there's seven standard airbags including the Subaru advanced front airbag system, seat-mounted front side-impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags protecting front and rear outboard occupants.

  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist

To help with all around awareness there's a Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist to cover your sides.

There's even a few features watching your back. Both the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Reverse Automatic Braking help prevent collisions when you're reversing, while the Rear-Vision Camera shows you what's behind you on your dashboard screen.
