2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Excellent Value, Driving Experience, and Versatility

The Subaru Crosstrek is among the best-selling Subarus in the United States market today. But what makes this product of the Japanese automaker so popular? The short answer is that is it offers excellent value for money, the hatchback-like driving experience, and its versatility, which can be seen off-road. In 2018, Subaru introduced the second generation of this crossover, and now in 2021, the Crosstrek is getting refreshed. The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek will feature a few design changes, more power, and a new trim. Also, the Crosstrek has been fine-tuned in other ways giving it a competitive edge over the competition. Here are some of the exciting features of the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek brought to you by your friends at Dick Hannah Subaru.

What's new in the 2021 Crosstrek?

  • The 2021 Crosstrek features a new front grille and bumper
  • Adaptive cruise control is now offered as standard in all CVT trims
  • A debutant Crosstrek Sport model
  • The Limited and Sport trims get a new engine capable of 182 horsepower

2021 Subaru Crosstrek features


You get to choose between two engine options in the 2021 Crosstrek. The first option, which is standard for the Base and Premium trims, is a 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 152 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. If you are looking for more power to tear through the roads of Longview, WA, then you can opt for the larger 2.5-Liter direct-injection Subaru Boxer engine producing 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, which is available on the Limited and Sport trims. Both engines are offered in tandem with CVT and a permanent AWD system. However, with the base model, you can opt for the 6-speed manual transmission, but the fuel efficiency suffers.

The new engine is not just exciting and powerful; it is also efficient managing almost identical fuel efficiency to the smaller engine. The 2.5-Liter engine is rated at 27 MPG for city and 34 MPG for highway, while the 2.0-Liter engine manages 28 MPG for city and 33 MPG for highway. The 2.0-Liter manual transmission engine manages the least fuel efficiency with a combined rating of 25 MPG.

The 2021 Crosstrek offers excellent firm and not harsh suspension, which soaks up all the bumps on the roads. The engines ride low in the car lowering the center of gravity and improving the handling. The steering is well-weighted, and the 2021 Crosstrek feels firm and rooted through corners.

It is also confirmed that the 2021 Crosstrek will also have a Crosstrek Hybrid, but no details have been released thus far. However, last year's model had a range of 17 miles when driven on the electric mode only. We expect that Subaru will make improvements to this year's model.


Subaru Crosstrek one of the safest cars, not only in its segment but across segments as well. For the 2021 Crosstrek, Subaru is taking things to the next level and at a reasonable cost. The 2021 Crosstrek can boast of being the safest Crosstrek ever thanks to the now standard Subaru EyeSight safety and driver-assistance technology. Get on the roads of Portland in peace, knowing that you are in safe hands behind the wheel of the all-new Crosstrek. Some of the key features in this safety suite include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane-centering assist
  • Lane-departure alert
  • Pre-collision alert
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Reverse automatic braking
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • SI-Drive

Interior and Technology

If you are looking for functionality over style, then the 2021 Crosstrek is what you want. The cabin is spacious, providing enough legroom and headroom for adults to sit and stretch comfortably. The 2021 Crosstrek also offers impressive cargo space, with the volume expanding to 55.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

The Crosstrek rides high, but the driver's seat is low to the floor. The seats provided are comfortable with a simple and uncluttered dash. Most functions can be manipulated through easy-to-use knobs and switches. The materials for the interior are top quality, particularly the black and grey with orange stitching.

The new Sport trim features some exciting elements in its interior as well. Firstly, you get the lightweight water repellant StarTex upholstery with yellow stitching that extends to the door panels, floor mats, steering wheel, center console, and armrests. You also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter, and a sports car-like instrument cluster.

The 2021 Crosstrek comes with enough technology to keep you entertained on the long roads of Beaverton. All the trims have the standard 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You can also expect Bluetooth capabilities, USB ports, automatic climate control, Wi-Fi capabilities, SiriusXM, among others. If you spend a little more, you get access to an 8.0-inch display system with voice-activated navigation, over-the-air updates, push-button start, and SiriusXM Traffic, among many features.
