Subaru has announced the pricing for the all-new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, which starts at $22,710 – just over $100 more than the outgoing model. The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will be offered in three trim levels: 2.0i base, Premium and Limited when it arrives late this summer.
The 2018 Crosstrek is the second model to debut that is based on Subaru’s new global platform. The Crosstrek is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Boxer engine that gains direct fuel injection to give it 152 horsepower, four more than before. The four-cylinder can be mated to either a 6-speed manual or CVT and every trim level comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Manual transmission equipped models are rated at 23/29 mpg, while the CVT is rated at 27/33 mpg.
The base Crosstrek 2.0i rides on new 17-inch alloy wheels and has new standard features, like the raised Stablex suspension and Active Torque Vectoring. CVT models have X-MODE and Hill Descent Control. Inside there’s black simulated carbon fiber finish on the center dash panel as well as the front and rear door panels. On the technology front, there’s a 6.5-inch touchscreen for the Starlink Multimedia system that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
If you upgrade to the Premium model, which starts at $23,510 you’ll get Starlink Connected Services, the All-Weather Package featuring heated front seats, windshield Wiper De-Icer, and heated exterior mirrors. A new sound insulated windshield and Welcome Lighting are standard on the Premium trim. You can also add a power moonroof and multiple driver assist technology systems to the Premium trim.
The Limited trim starts at $27,210 and features the standard CVT with X-MODE with Hill Descent Control, an 8.0-inch Multimedia Plus system, 18-inch alloy wheels, Keyless Access with Push-Button Start and Pin Code Access, 6-way Power Driver’s seat and new Steering Responsive Headlights. Limited trims include Automatic LED low and high beam height adjustment control. Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also standard.
Inside the Crosstrek Limited features black or new high-contrast gray leather with orange stitching on seats, door armrests and instrument panel. An exclusive instrument panel features white gauge cluster illumination, and you can also add a new Harman/Kardon premium audio system.
