First entering production in 2013 the Subaru Crosstrek is the Japanese automobile manufacturer's subcompact crossover SUV offering.

It was introduced as a replacement for the Subaru Outback Sport model that proved popular thanks to its interior space yet a low center of gravity (thanks to its boxer engine).

Just like the Outback Sport the Crosstrek is an Impreza underneath lifted slightly more than its predecessor.

Engine choices originally were fairly restricted, buyers could choose a 1.6 or 2 liter gasoline or a 2 liter turbocharged diesel.

Transmissions were fairly restricted too with the choice of a 5 or 6-speed manual or a CVT.

In the 2013 model year, Subaru added a hybrid option that captured lost potential energy when braking and applied it again during acceleration.

With the introduction of the second generation in 2018, the 5-speed manual transmission was removed from the roster although a 2.5 liter gasoline engine was added.

Almost straight away the new and improved hybrid system was made available to customers that allowed them to plug it in at home and charge the batteries for a new electric-only mode.

For those not wanting a plug-in hybrid option in their Crosstrek, the company re-introduced the standard hybrid system (called e-Boxer) that was lighter and simply captured lost energy from braking.
