Next generation Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid coming

The major differences this time is that the Crosstrek hybrid will feature more aggressive electric technology and be a plug-in hybrid, all of which will be sourced from Toyota.

The first Subaru XV Crosstrek hybrid was a mild attempt at improving fuel economy back in 2014. I was less than impressed with the slight power boost as the hybrid’s extra girth quite nearly negated any possible improvement in performance and fuel economy.

The new car will borrow heavily from the Toyota Prius Prime plug-in car but without sacrificing what makes a Subaru a Subaru. That means that the Boxer 4-cylinder engine will remain, as will the brand’s signature AWD system.

There are few other details available at the moment. We expect that, in 100% electric mode, the car will provide up to 35km of range on a full charge. A boost in power is also foreseeable, which will be a nice touch.

The new Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is expected by the end of 2018.
