17 new 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Review

>>MIKE: The Subaru XV Crosstrek Is Essentially An. Impreza Hatchback With Tougher Styling And 3 Extra Inches Of Ground Clearance.

Subaru Calls It A Crossover. We Call It A Wagon. Semantics Aside, It's A Good Alternative.

>>MIKE: There Are Two Versions Of The Crosstrek Available. The Standard One Has The Same 148-horsepower Four-cylinder As The. Impreza, Along With A Five-speed Manual Transmission Or An Optional CVT Automatic.

That's Not A Lot Of Power And The Crosstrek Is Pretty Slow As A Result. >>MIKE: The Other Version Of The Crosstrek Is This Hybrid Model.. It Has The Same Four-cylinder Engine And CVT Augmented By An Electric Motor And Batteries..

It Has 12 Extra Horsepower,, But Is Also Heavier And Therefore Even Slower.. It Also Only Gets 31 Mpg Combined -- The Standard Crosstrek With The CVT Gets 28.. It Would Take You About 7 Years To Pay Back The Hybrid's Price Premium With Fuel Savings Alone.

>>MIKE: Like The. Impreza, There Are Two All-wheel-drive Systems Available. With The Manual Transmission, Subaru's Symmetrical All-wheel Drive System Has A Constant 50/50 Front-to-rear Power Distribution.

The Optional CVT And Hybrid Get An All-wheel-drive System That Shifts Power Front To Back Depending On Traction. >>MIKE: With Either One, Though, You Can Go Down A Muddy Road, Onto A Beach Or Any Other Bit Of Light Off-roading That's Needed To Get To Your Destination. And Really, That's This Car's Appeal..

It Can Go Places Many Of Those Legitimate Crossover SUVs Can't, While Being Cheaper, More Maneuverable And A Little Different To Look At. >>MIKE:. It's Also Smaller,.

So, You End Up With The Same Amount Of Backseat And Cargo Volume You'd Find In A Compact Hatchback.. In That Context, It's Actually Fairly Generous,, But Know That The Crosstrek Is No Substitute For The Bigger Subaru Forester Or Other Compact SUVs. >>MIKE:.

Interior Quality Is Average At Best, With Materials And Construction That Trail Many Competitors. The Available Touchscreen Interface Is Also Frustrating To Use And The Base Sound System Is Weak. >>MIKE: The Government Gave It 5 Stars For Overall Crash Protection And It's An.

IIHS Top Safety Pick. >>MIKE: Pricing Starts At Around $22,000, Which Is About The Same As The Bigger And More Powerful Forester. You Get More Equipment For Your Money, Though, Especially With The Limited Trim Level.

So That, Along With Subaru's Reputation For Reliability, Makes The Crosstrek A Great Value For Those Looking For Something A Little Different To Take Them Off The Beaten Path. >>MIKE: How Does The Crosstrek Stack Up Against The Nissan Juke Or Mini Cooper Countryman? Tell Us What You Think.
