Subaru of America, Inc. turns up the value and style of its popular Crosstrek compact SUV for 2017.  A new Premium Special Edition offers exclusive exterior style and interior appointments along with additional safety technology and amenities.

All Crosstrek models are powered by a 148-hp 2.0-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or the available Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission). Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard, 8.7-in. of ground clearance, 17-inch alloy wheels and ample room for passengers and cargo, makes the Crosstrek a high-capability crossover. The Crosstrek is one of the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive crossover utility vehicles in America, delivering 33-mpg EPA-estimated highway fuel economy.

Special Style and Value

Subaru offers the 2017 Crosstrek in three models: 2.0i, 2.0i Premium and 2.0i Limited. For 2017, a new Premium Special Edition provides an additional choice following the success of the 2016 “Pure Red” Special Edition. The 2017 Special Edition, available exclusively with Pure Red or Crystal Black Silica exterior, gets an even sportier look and attitude with a body-colour rear spoiler, 17-inch alloy wheels, black exterior badging and body-colour mirrors with integral turn signals. Standard Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert enhances convenience and safety.

Award-Winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

When equipped with the brand’s award-winning EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the Crosstrek earned the Top Safety Pick+ rating and a “Superior” rating for frontal crash prevention from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). EyeSight includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, and Vehicle Lane Departure and Sway Warning and is available for the Crosstrek 2.0i Premium and 2.0i Limited models.


The STARLINK Multimedia systems integrate STARLINK Cloud Applications, including Calendar, Stitcher™, Music Player, News and Weather and iHeart® Radio. The standard STARLINK 6.2” Multimedia system in the Crosstrek 2.0i and 2.0i Premium models provides a multitude of music and information sources through a 6.2-in. multi-function touchscreen display with single-touch gesture control. The display also functions for the standard Rear-Vision Camera.

Built for Everyday Driving and Rugged Action

The Crosstrek looks the part of a rugged crossover and backs up its appearance with proven Subaru capability. Black side and wheel-arch cladding, rocker spoiler and roof rails provide a rugged contrast to the body colour. The raised ride height, body-colour roof spoiler and unique-design 17-inch wheels bolster the Subaru Crosstrek model’s go-anywhere stance and attitude. 

Practicality Meets Comfort
A 103.7-inch wheelbase yields impressive interior roominess in the Subaru Crosstrek, including 35.4 inches of rear-seat legroom. With the standard 60/40 split rear seatbacks folded, this versatile five-door SUV provides a flat load floor and up to 51.9 cubic feet of carrying space. Three golf bags or a large baby stroller can be easily loaded. The Premium equips the cargo area with a retractable and removable shade-type cover, along with a removable waterproof cargo tray. Subaru retailers offer a number of accessories for the standard roof rails for carrying items such as bicycles and kayaks.
