2014 XV Crosstrek Research and Review

The newly released Subaru XV Crosstrek made its grand debut in 2013, showcasing a rugged, yet sophisticated, design and a healthy dose of functional amenities throughout its lineup. Returning for 2014, the SUV remains unchanged, aside from a small technological addition, and continues to offer a confident powertrain, sufficient handling and practical features. A brand-new hybrid model also accompanies the standard Crosstrek this year, which eco-friendly Springfield buyers are guaranteed to love. Complete with exceptional style and impressive capabilities, the 2014 XV Subaru Crosstrek is a stand out in the compact crossover segment.

Sporting a tall stance and large wheels, it's easy to see the Crosstrek was built for both on- and off-road driving. A 2.0L boxed engine, producing 148 horsepower, helps make this possible and comes paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. Fantastic handling and a pleasant ride quality further expand the crossover's appeal. For a "green" alternative and additional efficiency, you may want to try out the new Crosstrek Hybrid. It comes with a 10kW electric motor, a CVT and a nickel-metal-hydride battery, increasing fuel economy. An active grille shutter also comes equipped on hybrid models in an effort to improve aerodynamics.

On the inside, the Crosstrek offers great storage areas for equipment, along with a rear seat that can be transformed into a cargo bay - noted in The Car Connection's 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek review. An easy-to-clean cargo tray is also outfitted within the cabin to keep dirty gear off and away from the carpets. Extra optional features include automatic climate control, leather seating, rear cup holders, a rearview camera and a fold-down rear seat arm rest. New for 2014, Subaru's smart-phone integrated Aha infotainment system with navigation is now available on Premium and Limited models, providing additional functionality and entertainment.
