Previously this year, the Subaru Crosstrek got a total redesign. In real Subaru style, however, this redesign did not consist of a substantial styling upgrade to set it apart from the previous generation. For 2019, we anticipate the newly revamped Crosstrek to stay entirely the same.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Changes
We do not anticipate any visual changes in the 2019 Crosstrek relative to the recently upgraded 2018 model. This revamped body consists of more running lines than previously, scalloped door panels, changed headlights, and more. The revamped Crosstrek likewise has a new chassis that enables its wheelbase to grow by 1.2 inches, its width to increase 0.9 inches, and its general body length to grow by 0.6 inches.
On top of a makeover on the within, the revamped Crosstrek’s cabin likewise grew rather substantially. With exception to headroom, practically every seating measurement grew with the redesign, consisting of hip space and legroom in the front and rear seats. Likewise improved was its optimum freight space, which grew by 3.4 cubic feet to 55.3 cubes, though area with the seats upright took a 1.5-cubic-foot hit to 20.8 cubes.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Engine
The new-generation Crosstrek likewise got a modified variation of its 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. Subaru modified its output, raising it to 152 horse power– a 4-hp gain– while its torque stayed the exact same at 145 pound-feet. We anticipate this to stay the exact same in 2019. At the minute, there are no indicators that Subaru will be reviving the Crosstrek Hybrid.
We likewise anticipate the transmission alternatives to bring into the 2019 Crosstrek the same, including its basic six-speed handbook transmission on the base and Premium trims and the basic constantly variable transmission with manual mode on Limited trims. The base and Premium trims will likewise continue to have an optional CVT readily available.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Safety
The 2018 Crosstrek hasn’t gone through IIHS screening yet, however the 2017 model was a Top Safety Pick and the redesign introduced 40% enhanced crash-energy absorption. This indicates the upgraded Crosstrek ought to be at least a Top Safety Pick, and perhaps even a Top Safety Pick Plus if it can score more than an “Acceptable” ranking in the headlight test. This must all stay the very same in 2019.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Pricing & Release Date
Though we do not have a main release date, we do anticipate to see the 2019 Crosstrek in display rooms in the summertime of 2018. Given that there are no changes in the works, we do not anticipate much of a shift in rates from the 2018 Crosstrek’s rate series of $23,710 to $27,210 (location charges consisted of). Secret competitors for the 2019 Crosstrek will consist of the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and the Jeep Renegade.
