The Subaru Crosstrek is a crossover that offers complete versatility on the road. Drivers loved the 2016 model, which is why the Crosstrek will see few major changes for the 2017 model year. In addition to everything drivers love, the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek will see the addition of a new special edition model as well as the discontinuation of a rather unpopular trim.
Price is a major factor for most drivers and for the 2017 model year, the Subaru Crosstrek will see a $100 price increase on all trims. That’s not much of a difference compared to other automakers.
The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will leave the lineup due to slow sales. It’s hard for drivers to justify spending over $4,000 more for a hybrid model when gas prices are sticking around $2. Considering the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek earns an EPA-estimated 26 city/34 hwy mpg, we certainly can’t blame them.
The 2017 Subaru Crosstrek will see the edition of the Special Edition Pure Red model but there’s a catch. Only 1,500 units will be available in the United States. A Pure Red paintjob, integrated turn signals, red accents, red stitching, and red ambient lighting are just a few of the perks to this limited edition model.
Here at Steve Lewis Subaru, we’re happy to see the new Crosstrek maintaining all of the features drivers love!
