What's New For 2018?
As the Crosstrek was redesigned for the model year, almost everything has been altered. The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek rests upon a massively upgraded chassis and has undergone a lot of tweaks to the engine found on the 2017. Additionally, there have been many changes made throughout the cabin (including the addition of many new standard and optional safety and infotainment features), giving the Crosstrek a much more contemporary look than its predecessor.
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is only available as a subcompact SUV. All-wheel drive comes standard on each model.
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek has three different trim levels to choose from: the 2.0i, the 2.0i Premium, and the 2.0i Limited. All of these trim levels come equipped with a standard 2.0-L 4-cylinder engine that is capable of generating 152 hp (a minor improvement over last year's 148 hp) and 145 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard on the 2.0i and 2.0i Premium, but a CVT is available as an option on those two trim levels and comes as a standard feature on the 2.0i Limited. The 2.0i is a base that is surprisingly well-equipped. It features a 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen display, smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a standard rearview camera. The mid-level 2.0i Premium trim boasts a shifter and steering wheel both clad in leather, heated mirrors and seats, and the option of adding Subaru's EyeSight suite, which features several important driver aids. At the top of the line-up, the 2.0i Limited trim includes keyless ignition and entry, leather seats, and automatic climate control. The EyeSight suite and a Harman Kardon sound system are some of the available options that can be added to the 2.0i Limited.
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does not have the strongest performance on the highway. It is somewhat reluctant to get up-to-speed since the engine's 4 cylinders struggle to provide ample power. While the new engine can probably best the old engine's sluggish acceleration time of 10 seconds going from 0 to 60 mph, it likely will not keep pace with its competitors. That being said, the Crosstrek is more than capable as an off-roading vehicle thanks to its impressive 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. The ABS system is perfectly calibrating for handling off-roading adventures, and the new chassis proves that it is stronger and more capable than ever before.
At its very best, the Crosstrek manages to get a combined 29 mpg (27 mpg city/33 mpg highway) on the CVT models. The models equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission get a bit less, coming in at 25 mpg combined (23 mpg city/29 mpg highway). This is a fairly average fuel economy for the subcompact SUV class.
The all-new Subaru Crosstrek has an interior design that is sparking a lot of excitement, and the addition of many new features makes the Crosstrek quite an affordable option when you're looking for a capable off-roader. Unfortunately, the engine wasn't tweaked enough to provide highway gusto, but most drivers will appreciate the easy and smooth ride quality the Crosstrek gives.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Subaru Crosstrek
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Subaru Crosstrek invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Subaru Crosstrek MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
