The Subaru Crosstrek (identified as the Subaru XV globally) is a compact crossover produced by Subaru as a replacement to the Subaru Outback Sport in North America, and the Subaru Impreza XV globally. Like the Outback Sport, the Crosstrek is a lifted Subaru Impreza hatchback with insignificant distinctions, though with a more sturdy lift than the Outback Sport. The Crosstrek has a mixture of powertrains and trims options, depending on the market.
The Subaru XV Crosstrek was launched for the 2013 model year in 2012 at the New York International Auto Show with CVT or 5-speed manual transmission and paired with the FB20B producing 148 hp (110 kW) (in the United States), sharing engine specs with the Impreza.
The Subaru Crosstrek is available in three trim levels: Base, Premium, and Limited. All Crosstreks come by default with all-wheel drive and are equipped by the identical 2.0-liter four-cylinder powertrain (152 horsepower, 180 lb-ft of torque). Base and Premium trims come by default with a six-speed manual transmission and with an optional CVT automatic, which is the unique transmission offered on the Limited trim.
