2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Live Photos: 2012 New York Auto Show


The Subaru XV Crosstrek made its original debut at last year’s Frankfurt Auto Show. Now it’s landed on these shores, with an official introduction at this week’s New York Auto Show.

Built on the Impreza platform, the XV Crosstrek promises to combine go-(almost)-anywhere utility with practicality. It carries the rugged off-road look that buyer’s want, but also manages to deliver up to 33 mpg on the highway despite its all-wheel-drive layout.

Power comes from a 2.0-liter boxer-four engine, routed through either a six-speed manual gearbox or a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT). The CVT is the only option on range topping Crosstrek Limited models, but it does offer a manual mode with six simulated gears.

The Crosstrek is built for the active lifestyle, so expect it to deliver plenty of cargo room for your gear, as well as ample storage compartments throughout the interior. The model range includes the base Crosstrek Premium and the better-equipped Crosstrek Limited, but all models can be equipped with navigation and a power moonroof.

Look for the XV Crosstrek to hit U.S. Subaru dealers this fall, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.

  1. It's a Dodge Caliber with a Subaru name plate on it.

  2. @Matt, let's hope not. The Dodge Caliber was the only rental car I ever returned before driving off the lot.

  3. I hope you know I was saying this in a tongue and cheek manner. But they sure do have similar lines.
    I'm sure though that the Sube is going to be a much better vehicle.
    My son just bought a 2012 Forester Limited and he's very happy with it.

  4. Agreed that the two do look similar.

    My wife has owned a bunch of Subies over the years, and only one (a '92 Legacy Wagon) ever gave us problems.
