2018 Subaru Crosstrek- Now in Europe it's still called the XV so you'll see some sign age on the car that says XV, but in Canada it's called Crosstrek and it's coming this summer, let's have a exclusive first look at the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek Redesign
2018 Subaru Crosstrek is built on Subaru new global platform that first debuted in the Impreza last year. Two main objectives really with this new platform to make it safer and more dynamic to drive The Crosstrek global platform is improved rigidity throughout the body from anywhere, from 70 to 100 percent compared to the last car, also the center of gravity has been lowered by five millimeters with a wide load stance, this car should improve handling and straight-line performance, at the same time it maintains its impressive 220 millimeters of ground clearance. Now the Crosstrek has a go-anywhere attitude and that starts with new alloy wheels and some new colors as well orange is back, this color is called sunshine orange and new grey color is called cool grey khaki.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek Engine
Now under the hood of the cross track is a 2-liter boxer engine, which might sound the same but apparently it's not eighty percent of the engine components have been changed, and the biggest addition is adding direct injection which makes the engine lighter and more efficient. Also on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is X-mode which first debuted on the Forester a few years ago. It helps optimize the all-wheel drive system, braking system and engine to give optimal grip at low speeds on slippery surfaces. The CVT now has a wider range of ratios plus a 7-speed step manual mode to give the driver more control. The driving goal was to make the Crosstrek feel more precise, with an improved steering ratio and for the first time, active torque vectoring which will also enhance the driving experience.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek Interior
As you can see the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek still has the hexagonal grille with matte black cladding that is a signature of the model. On the inside there is a standard that's right standard 8 inch touchscreen display for all your infotainment. Now I really believe that Subaru is up the ante with the interiors of their new products. In this Crosstrek is no different nice combination of materials and finish. You get the nice orange stitching just like the previous model. Steering wheel shifter dash and the seat that really does look smart, now the other thing about Subaru cars are the big doors, the doors open wide, the windows are large, the mirrors are on the door and not on the glass which gives you great outward visibility and that is fantastic in this car.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek Features
One of the major selling features of the Subaru brand has been standard all-wheel drive and the advanced eyesight safety system that is available on the Crosstrek, it includes pre-collision braking, and adaptive cruise control and Lane keep assist. You’ll notice the hawk I had lamps that are now steering responsive in addition there's also the new High Beam Assist. And the goal was to achieve the IIHS top safety pick+ when you include it with Subaru eyesight system. At the back there's the rear side vehicle detection system that includes blind spot protection, lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert.
Now as I mentioned two main goals with the Crosstrek built on this new global platform, to be safer and to have better handling dynamics and quietness on the inside, and the only way to find that out is to get a chance to drive it, which will be happening in the next couple of months so stay tuned for that so this new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is coming to Canada this summer.
