The Winter-Ready Subaru Crosstrek Can Help You Beat New England Snow This Season

Winter-Ready Subaru Crosstrek

Winter Wonderland With The Crosstrek

The new winter-ready Subaru Crosstrek, available today, offers a host of comprehensive capability, safety, and technology features that will make it one of your best-bets once New England’s snow and ice starts showing its force here in Massachusetts.

Standard All-Wheel Drive

As Subaru owners are already well-aware, every Subaru comes with standard all-wheel drive an absolute must-have for any amount of snow. But, in addition to the Crosstrek’s powerful AWD, it offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance, giving drivers control and stability in deeper snow drifts. If you’ve ever needed to hit the road before the plows have had their chance to run, you’ll appreciate those nearly nine inches of lift.

Continuously Variable Transmission

The 2018 Crosstrek also features a refined continuously variable transmission (CVT) for sophisticated responsiveness and a fine-tuned suspension, so no matter what sort of blizzard New England sends your way, your winter-ready Subaru Crosstrek will keep on delivering power and stability.

EyeSight Safety Suite

Finally, the Subaru Crosstrek offers an available safety system for ultimate security all winter long. Subaru’s intuitive EyeSight safety suite provides features from automatic emergency braking to adaptive cruise control, meaning you never need to lose confidence when behind the wheel of your Crosstrek.

At Steve Lewis Subaru, located in lovely Hadley, MA, we’ve seen our fair share of New England snow, so trust us when we say that the 2018 Crosstrek is one of Subaru’s best wintertime models produced to date. If you want to see the Crosstrek in action, visit us today for a test drive.

The Benefits of All-Wheel Drive

Benefits of All Wheel Drive

 

All-wheel drive (AWD) is a major selling point for some car buyers. Perhaps you even know someone who would never even think of buying a car without AWD. But, what are the actual benefits of AWD? Let’s find out, so you can shop smart.

 

Improved Traction

 

Because power is sent to all four wheels, AWD vehicles provide improved traction. Especially in slippery, snowy, muddy, or off-road conditions, AWD reduces the likelihood of getting stuck. Improved traction can be especially helpful when towing.

 

Better Acceleration

 

Since AWD vehicles distribute the traction load between the four tires more evenly than front-wheel or rear-wheel drive cars, you can expect better acceleration from an AWD vehicle.

 

Increased Resale Value

 

Though the additional cost of some AWD models may seem like a drawback, this up-front cost translates into higher resale value if you ever decide to sell your car. Investing in AWD not only makes your vehicle more capable, but it could save you a big headache when the time comes to sell it.

 

Peace of Mind

 

Even if you’re not taking your car off-road and into the mountains, or through icy terrain in a remote location, the unexpected still happens. Bad weather can turn paved streets into uncertain territory. Being prepared offers the peace of mind that you and those around you are ready for whatever comes your way.
