Built on the same platform as the Impreza, the all-new Subaru XV Crosstrek offers the versatility of an SUV in a small, city-friendly package. Fitted with Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive and a punchy, 148-horsepower boxer 4-cylinder, this compact crossover is as comfortable on mountain roads as it is on urban streets.
