With a starting price of $23,795 and more standard equipment, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is even more appealing than before.
The Subaru Crosstrek’s 2020 model year will be marked by a light dose of safety, the compact crossover of the brand receives the EyeSight driving assistance system on all versions equipped with the CVT gearbox.
Unfortunately, consumers who opt for the traditional six-speed manual gearbox will have to do without this system which includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure and sway warning, as well as lane-keep assist, among others.
Subaru Canada is also adding the SI-DRIVE engine management system to the EyeSight-equipped models. In addition, the X-MODE system (also available on CVT gearbox models) manages engine power, torque distribution and braking under harsh driving conditions.
At a starting price of $23,795, the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek is only $100 more expensive than the 2019 model and is more generous in standard equipment such as automatic climate control or the rear seat check reminder, a gadget that will certainly help stop this plague of forgotten children in the backseat of a vehicle. The automatic unlocking of doors during a collision is also standard for 2020.
Under the hood, Subaru still relies on the same 2.0-litre 4-cylinder BOXER engine that delivers 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. The Japanese carmaker still maintains the availability of the six-speed manual, but with this gap marked by the EyeSight system, it is clear that Subaru wants to remove this outdated technology from its lineup, a move already made during the redesign of the Forester, the Legacy and the Outback.
Subaru Canada has released the pricing for the multiple versions of the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek.
