Amazing Car To Drive! — This is an amazing vehicle! I have owned this for about 6 months now and I am very pleased with it. Ride and Comfort were big on my list, and it has exceeded my expectations! And I can not complain about the fuel economy when I am filling my tank about every 10 days instead of every 4-5 with my last car! This is my third Subaru and I will never own anything other than Subaru!

Pros: Great in snow-always felt I was in control.
Great Fuel Economy!
Safe, Reliable!

Cons: A LITTLE underpowered, but not majorly.

Love The Subaru Crosstrek — Want a great little AWD that gets good gas milage and is known to be dependable, buy a XV - awesome little car! Radio is the one thing you might want to upgrade in the Premium model. Other than that well equipped, fun driver.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great power/handling. Love the Dessert Khaki color. Base model comes well equipped with some nice options. Great gas milage.

Cons: Bluetooth so-so. CVT transmission sounds strange, but works great.

Basically A Lifted Impreza — I like the look and it made it a little bit younger, kinda in between the super sexy sport sti wrx and the family wagon. It has some space for cargo and people, but it not too square and boring like an old person outback, etc.

Pros: all wheel drive, look, wheels, clearance, utlity/practicality, seat covers, etc.

Cons: no real cons, only drove once.  A litter better MPG?

Ideal Small Suv And Daily Driver — Tons of fun to own and drive, excellent braking and handling only slightly offset by low power and less than racing standard accelerations. Overall an incredible car provided racing or showboating isn't part of a daily drive. Very straightforward interior with great functionality set off perfectly by basic black and red themed displays

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tangerine Pearl color is pleasingly distinctive, accented by black moulding over weels and bumper, with great gas mileage and incredible reliability for an AWD Subaru

Cons: Clear trade-off of power for fuel efficiency

If You Are The Outdoorsy Type, Consider This Car. — Adequate acceleration. Very Fuel Efficient 2L Engine that is very willing to get going. AWD keeps you safe in any weather condition. Tried out on gravel road. Appearance: Very rugged looking, some people like it, its all personal preference. Car is very nimble. Has great road appearance, SUV like height.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quirky, rugged, good on gas. Excellent adventure vehicle.

Cons: Needs power seat with lumbar adjustment,

Needs a stronger engine that is naturally aspirated for easier highway merging

Awesome By cdamato12

I love everything about this car other than that the USB port is at the bottom of the arm rest, so it can be a pain to get to if you have things in there. Other than that, the car is great! Good gas m... Read More

Gas Saver By yangxiong72

Very styling. Great to drive during the Summer & Winter. I wish that future models would have more horsepower like the Impreza. Not much of a difference between the Hybrid MPG and the regular model. I... Read More
