The company has already unveiled a refreshed 2024 model.
The current version is offered in five trim levels.
Subaru doesn’t offer standalone options on the Crosstrek but it has a wide range of available dealer accessories.
Subaru unveiled a revised version of the Crosstrek for the 2024 model year that is expected to reach dealerships later this year, but in the meantime, here’s a look at the pricing and specifications of the 2023 model.
The current Subaru Crosstrek is offered in five trim levels that share the same two engines and transmissions, with the brand’s Symmetrical all-wheel drive system being standard on every version.
The standard engine in the Crosstrek is a 2.0L horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine that makes 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque which can be paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a Lineartronic CVT unit.
The other engine is a 2.5L horizontally-opposed four-cylinder that makes 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque and can only be paired with the CVT transmission.
The all-wheel-drive system features a few differences between models equipped with manual and CVT transmissions. For example, the center differential is a viscous coupling on the 6-speed Crosstrek models while it is an electronically controlled multi-plate transfer clutch on those fitted with the CVT.
Hill Start Assist is standard on every model but hill descent control is limited to the CVT models, which also benefit from an X-Mode that alters the parameters of the drivetrain to deal with difficult conditions. Those models also offer the SI-Drive drive mode selector.
Subaru groups its EyeSight suite of driver assistance features with the CVT transmission, which means that manual-equipped versions don’t offer its features which include: Adaptive cruise control, lane centring assist, lane keeping assist, lead-vehicle start alert, pre-collision braking, and pre-collision throttle management.
The entry-level 2023 Subaru Crosstrek is the $24,995 Convenience model which is equipped with features such as automatic halogen headlamps, LED combination taillamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear glass, a 6.5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 4-speaker audio system with controls on the steering wheel, an illuminated center console tray, a pocket on the passenger seatback, automatic front windows, analog gauges with red illumination, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, black interior door handles, carbon-look trim accents, manually adjustable front seats (6-way for the driver, 4-way for the passenger), black cloth upholstery, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, a driver’s knee airbag, dynamic guide lines for the reverse camera, cruise control, rear seat reminder, keyless entry, and an engine immobilizer.
Adding the EyeSight and CVT combo pushes the MSRP to $27,195 and it also adds a body-coloured shark fin antenna, a digital speed readout in the instrument cluster, and an additional exterior paint colour choice.
The next version in the lineup is the $27,595 Touring model which adds features such as LED fog lights, additional under-hood sound insulation, a wiper de-icer, a 6-speaker CD audio system with XM Satellite radio, two USB ports in the front, automatic climate control, a rear armrest, an illuminated glovebox, welcome lighting, white analog gauges with red accents, a 6.3-inch digital display on the center console, orange stitching on the upholstery, chromed door handles, a leather-wrapped shift knob, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, a proximity key system with push-button start, and 3 years of StarLink connected services which include accident notification, boundary alert, concierge, enhanced roadside assistance, service appointment scheduler, remote door lock, vehicle locator, SOS emergency services, and vehicle health reports.
Choosing EyeSight and the CVT transmission on the Touring grade Crosstrek pushes the price up to $29,595 and also adds remote engine start, as well as two additional paint colours.
The Crosstrek Outdoor begins at $31,495 and it includes the larger of the two engines as well as the EyeSight driver assistance features. Furthermore, this model distinguishes itself from the others with its dual-function X-Mode, steering wheel paddle shifters with 8 simulated speeds, gunmetal badging, additional plastic cladding around the wheel arches, a unique front bumper, gunmetal side mirrors, a gunmetal grille accent, gunmetal 17-inch alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, a protective cargo tray in the cargo area, LED cargo area lighting, yellow accent stitching, gunmetal interior accents, black interior door handles, all-weather floor mats, a leather-wrapped shift booth, rear and side vehicle detection, blind spot monitoring, lane-change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The $30,095 Sport builds on the Touring model with a number of the features found on the Outdoor model such as the 8.0-inch infotainment system, rear and side vehicle detection, blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. In addition, this model stands out with its LED daytime running lights, adaptive LED headlamps, sunroof, dual USB ports in the center armrest in front, illuminated visor vanity mirrors, aluminum alloy pedals and footrest, a 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and premium cloth upholstery.
When EyeSight and the CVT transmission are chosen, the invoice comes in at $32,695 and the rear automatic emergency braking system is added along with remote engine start.
The $35,795 Limited is the Top-of-the-line Crosstrek for 2023 due to its features such as the 2.5L engine, chromed door handles, LED turn signals on the side mirrors, chrome accents on the grille, 18-inch alloy wheels wearing Falken tires, chrome on the window trim, an integrated navigation system, a three-month subscription to XM traffic, a premium 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, silver accents on the dashboard and the doors, and leather upholstery.
