The Crosstrek is a compact crossover utility vehicle that was introduced in 2013. The Crosstrek comes with standard all-wheel drive and high ground clearance, which help it handle well on rough terrain. It has impressive cargo space, even for its size.

What's New For The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek?

Subaru has made a few notable changes for the 2022 model year. There are new features, exterior changes and performance upgrades to make it even better than before.

What's New Under The Hood?

Last year saw a significant improvement in power and torque output for an engine that is already impressive in its own right. For the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek, this trend will continue with more improvements all around. It has received many updates, including fuel injection and a redesigned intake manifold.

Subaru has always been known as the "quieter" brand, meaning that even though they're still working to improve engine power and torque output, it's all done with low noise in mind for Crosstrek drivers. That means you don't have to sacrifice comfort for efficiency; these two things can go hand in hand.

Performance

The engine is one of the highlights of this vehicle. It is more potent than ever before, making it an excellent choice for those who love to drive and are looking for adventure. Fuel efficiency is also ideal, thanks to the many updates made to the engine. You can expect to get good gas mileage even when driving around town.

Its engine is a 2.0-litre flat 4-cylinder engine that makes 152 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. The Crosstrek accelerates from 0-60 mph in 9.2 seconds and has a top speed of up to 130 mph. The Crosstrek is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for smooth shifting and excellent fuel economy. All models have an all-wheel-drive system as standard.

Cargo Capacity

The Subaru Crosstrek has always been praised for its impressive cargo space, which remains unchanged for the 2022 model year. You can easily fit all of your gear inside, even if you're going on a long trip. The rear seats also fold down to give you even more room if necessary.

What's New In The Cabin?

The Crosstrek has always been known as a very comfortable vehicle, and for 2022 it is better than ever before. It will now come with upgraded materials on the interior to make your ride even more enjoyable.

The cabin is very roomy, even for taller drivers. Seats are also comfortable and provide plenty of space for you to sit back and relax. This is a great family car that can handle all of your needs.

The interior is spacious and very modern. It is easy to get comfortable so that you can fully enjoy the ride, whether it's for an hour or a day. You'll be able to listen to your favourite music through Bluetooth connectivity with up-to-date technology on board.

The Crosstrek interior detention sizes:
Front Headroom - 39.8-inches
Rear Headroom - 38.0-inches
Front Leg Room - 43.1-inches
Rear Leg Room - 36.5-inches
Front Shoulder Room - 56.7-inches
Rear Shoulder Room - 55.6-inches

Safety and Technology Features

It seems like every year, there are more and more safety features available for vehicles. For 2022 Crosstrek, it's no different. The safety features are cutting-edge and will keep you and your family safe on every ride. You can easily connect to your smartphone to access all of your favourite music or use the built-in navigation system to get where you need to go.

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is available as an upgrade. This system provides additional safety features, including lane keep assist that steers the Crosstrek back into its lane if it starts to drift, advanced adaptive cruise control, and pre-collision braking.

You can expect all of the latest technology to make your family as safe as possible on every ride. New technology features include blind-spot detection, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Higher-Specification Crosstrek comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, bigger than the 6.5-inch screen on the Basic and Standard trim levels. All trims come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration, as well as SiriusXM® All Access Radio. Four or six speakers are found in basic audio systems, while an eight-speaker Harman Kardon premium system is available as an option.

The Crosstrek has always been an excellent choice for families because it is reliable and affordable. There's no reason to consider any other vehicle with all of the new features available for 2022. Get behind the wheel of the Subaru Crosstrek and enjoy everything it has to offer.

Exterior

The exterior of the Subaru Crosstrek is sporty and stylish. It has been updated for 2022 and now features new colours, including copper orange metallic, and Venetian red pearl. Its headlights are now LED, and the front grille has been updated as well. The Sport model features a different front grille, blacked-out headlight housings, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Limited model is luxurious and comes with chrome accents and gloss black mirror caps.

Trims

Touring

The Premium model will start to see higher prices due to additional standard features being included with the car. Now you get an 8-inch infotainment system, eight speakers, and smartphone compatibility. There is also the addition of automatic climate control for your convenience.

Sport

The Sport model comes with even more features that make driving enjoyable, including 17-inch alloy wheels, black roof rails, roof spoiler, fog lights, heated front seats, and heated side mirrors.'

LED headlights and fog lights Automatic headlights Variable intermittent wipers Leather seats Heated front seats Push-button start Navigation system Adaptive cruise control Driving assistant (which helps you stay in your lane) Pedestrian detection

Hybrid

This model is unique, as it is a Crosstrek with a hybrid powertrain. It has an 8-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission. It runs on gasoline while starting up and switching gears, but it can run on electric power at slower speeds or when the vehicle is stopped. This allows for better fuel economy and a reduced environmental impact.
