Previously this year, the Subaru Crosstrek received a total redesign. In true Subaru fashion, however, this redesign did not consist of a big styling update to set it apart from the previous generation. For 2019, we expect the newly revamped Crosstrek to remain totally unchanged.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Changes
We don’t anticipate any visual changes in the 2019 Crosstrek relative to the recently revamped 2018 model. This revamped body includes more flowing lines than previously, scalloped door panels, restyled headlights, and more. The redesigned Crosstrek also has a new chassis that allows its wheelbase to grow by 1.2 inches, its width to increase 0.9 inches, and its overall body length to grow by 0.6 inches.
On top of a new look on the within, the redesigned Crosstrek’s cabin also grew quite significantly. With exception to headroom, practically every seating measurement grew with the redesign, including hip space and legroom in the front and rear seats. Also improved was its maximum freight room, 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 received a modified version of its 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. Subaru fine-tuned its output, raising it to 152 horse power– a 4-hp gain– while its torque stayed the 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 options to bring into the 2019 Crosstrek the same, including its basic six-speed manual transmission on the base and Premium trims and the standard continuously variable transmission with manual mode on Limited trims. The base and Premium trims will also continue to have an optional CVT available.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Safety
The 2018 Crosstrek hasn’t undergone IIHS screening yet, but the 2017 model was a Top Safety Pick and the redesign ushered in 40% enhanced crash-energy absorption. This suggests the upgraded Crosstrek needs 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 need to all remain the very same in 2019.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Pricing & Release Date
Though we do not have a main release date, we do expect to see the 2019 Crosstrek in showrooms in the summer season of 2018. Since there are no changes in the works, we don’t anticipate much of a shift in rates from the 2018 Crosstrek’s cost variety of $23,710 to $27,210 (location costs consisted of). Secret competition for the 2019 Crosstrek will include the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and the Jeep Renegade.
