Extra Power, Capability and Fun

New, More Powerful 2.5-liter Direct-Injection SUBARU BOXER Engine

The 2021 Crosstrek features a newly available 2.5-liter direct-injection SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers more torque and increases output to 182 horsepower – extra power that makes all your trips more exciting and responsive.

Drawing on over 50 years of Subaru engineering experience, every SUBARU BOXER engine is designed with a unique horizontal layout that offers natural balance and a low center of gravity while delivering an efficient transfer of power.

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and up to 34 MPG[3]

The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It makes for improved handling and a quicker response to road conditions. The 2021 Crosstrek also gives you impressive fuel efficiency with up to 34 MPG[3] and over 500 miles of driving range, which puts even more adventure within your reach.

Right-Sized Compact SUV with Spacious Cargo Area

The smartly designed 2021 Crosstrek provides a surprisingly spacious interior with up to 121.6 cubic feet of interior volume – more than Toyota C-HR, Hyundai Kona, or Nissan Rogue Sport – in a compact SUV that remains agile and conveniently sized. A wide rear gate opening makes bigger gear easier to load. With 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks, you can fit three in the back with both rear seatbacks up, or fold a seat down for extra cargo space.

Built to Last

The journey goes on and on when you’re in a Crosstrek; 99% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 5 years are still on the road today[5]. That legendary Subaru reliability is why Kelley Blue Book named the Crosstrek as the Best Resale Value in its class for 2020[6] and why Crosstrek has had the highest residual value in its class for four years running, according to ALG[7].
