2017 Subaru Crosstrek Review

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek is a perfectly practical vehicle that can take Bloomfield, Clifton, and Montclair drivers anywhere they need to go in composed comfort. Its small form means that getting around crowded South Jersey side streets is never a chore, and the 8.7 inches of ground clearance ensures that the Crosstrek will also be ready for some adventuring on the weekends.

Read on to learn more about why the Crosstrek carries such a balanced package, then come to Lynnes Subaru in Bloomfield to test drive a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek for yourself.

 Subaru Crosstrek Exterior

 Taking the Impreza mold and pushing it to its burliest extent, the 2017 Crosstrek is a delightful mix of bulging body panels and ruggedly sculpted accents. A short front overhang greets onlookers with a small but stately grille and a pair of upswept headlights. Ridges along the hood and fenders, coupled with touches of body cladding, disclose the Crosstrek's trail-ready nature.

A tall canopy and a distinctively rounded back end give the Crosstrek an overall tidy appearance. Through these design highlights, the Crosstrek can straddle its appeal between lovers of quirky, well-sculpted hatchbacks and those who want a small SUV that boldly declares its capability.

2017 Subaru Crosstrek Performance

The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek's 148 horsepower 2.0L flat-four engine creates reliable revs and balanced performance when coupled with either a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) or a 5-speed manual transmission.

"Poise" would be the optimal word since the Crosstrek feels well-dampened in turns and never creates too much body roll or interior jostling of passengers. This engineered control ensures that the Crosstrek always feels firmly planted but never too harsh. The suspension likewise softens even the roughest patches of terrain, helped along by Subaru's advanced standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.

Subaru's CVT in the Crosstrek has received substantial improvements that aid driver feedback. Rather than droning through its power band, it's programmed to simulate distinct shifts that help the driver gauge RPMs versus the current power they're feeling.

Braking is crisp and responsive, as is the overall handling. Crosstrek owners can enjoy this sense of predictable and refined driving behavior whether in town, on the highway, or on unpaved roads.

Subaru Crosstrek Interior

 Whether clad in durable, easy-to-clean cloth or top-line leather, the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek can supply practical comfort in all its guises. With 43.5 inches of front legroom and 39.8 inches of front headroom, the Crosstrek can easily fit large adults comfortably. Dash controls are easy to use, either through conventional dials or an intuitive touchscreen system that utilizes button shortcuts.

22.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row provides ample room for all the groceries or adventuring gear you need, but the Crosstrek can open to 51.9 cubic feet with 60/40 split folding seats. Optional Subaru accessories like cargo trays and nets can make packing even easier. And standard integrated roof rails will gladly accept any excess cargo.

2017 Subaru Crosstrek Safety

2017 Crosstrek owners can feel confident knowing their SUV achieved a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Subaru's EyeSight® suite of active safety features offers drivers an added level of safety. Adaptive Cruise Control, for example, can automatically adjust the vehicle's speed to avoid a frontal collision, while other safety features monitor the vehicle's blind spots for 360 degrees of passenger protection.
