The New 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Offers Hardly Anything
The first Crosstrek was offered to us in the year 2013. And it
was just last year that Subaru decided to make some major
changes in the vehicle and offered us a Crosstrek which was
slightly bigger in size and had a capability of crash
absorption that was almost 40% more than before. It came as a
bit of a shock when we heard that the company was planning on
launching yet another model of this vehicle in 2019. Since the
2019 Subaru Crosstrek comes in so soon after the release of the
2018 model, we do not really expect there to be too many
changes in the 2019 model.
The Crosstrek is the number one choice of those people who do
not like driving around in an SUV and yet love a lifted wagon.
While all the other car makers are rushing to enter and conquer
the subcompact market, Subaru has been sitting and ruling this
segment for the past 6 years. Subaru has been setting records
with its growing monthly sales, and the launch of the 2019
model has been done to capitalize on this success of the
As mentioned above, with the 2019 Crosstrek not many changes
are expected. However, the company does claim to have done a
redesigning of the car. Below are a few highlights of the
changes that we noticed in the car when we got our first sneak
peek of this new Crosstrek.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Size: This is the
biggest and the most significant change that we observed in the
new model of this car. The size of the car has been increased.
The 2019 model will come with a new chassis because of which
the wheelbase will increase by 1.2 inches. The width of the car
has also increased by 0.9 inches, while the length of the body
of the car has grown by 0.6 inches.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Interiors: The interiors
of the car will get revamped, and the cabin is expected to
become bigger and more spacious. As a result of this, you will
be able to enjoy more headroom, hip room and leg room in every
row of the car. The cargo room in the vehicle has also
increased in size, growing by 3.4 cubic feet.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Exterior: Not much has
changed on the exterior of the car. Although the company is
promising to make the same cooler and smarter. The vehicle is
expected to be available in new colors. The overhangs will
become shorter and the headlights of the car would get
refreshed. The redesigning of the body of the car has given it
more flowing lines. The door panels have become scalloped.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Engine: The 2019
Crosstrek will come with a 2.0 liter Boxer engine. This engine
with have a direct injection system. The horsepower of this
engine would be better and higher than the power generated by
the engine in the 2018 model. The new horsepower of the vehicle
would go up to 152 HP. However, the torque of the vehicle would
stay at 145 pound feet.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Technology: For giving
the drivers of this car better handling capabilities, Active
Torque Vectoring have been provided in the vehicle. For a
smoother and fun ride in off road conditions, the vehicle will
have the X-mode available. For improved entertainment, Android
Auto and Apple CarPlay would be made available through the new
Multimedia system. The buyers of the car would be able to read
the tire pressure of all the individual tires with the help of
the new tire pressure monitoring system available in the 2019
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Eyesight Features: Many
new Eyesight features will also be upgraded to the vehicle.
This will include High Beam Assist. The Reverse Automatic
Braking system will help the drivers in detecting any obstacles
while backing up the vehicle. The Forward Braking System, which
is a standard feature in the Crosstrek since the very first
model, will be present in this latest model as well.
The overall experience of driving this new model is expected to
be tighter and sportier. The company is really hoping that this
enhanced sporty feel of the car would attract its customers.
2019 Subaru Crosstrek Release Date And Pricing
The official release date of the car has not been announced yet
by the company. In fact, there is absolutely no word from the
officials of the company about when they plan to release this
new model in the market. Hence, it can safely be assumed that
this model is definitely not hitting our nearest showroom till
at least the summer of 2018. As far as the price of the car is
concerned, since not many changes have been made to the 2019
model, hence, the price should not change much as well. There
should to only a marginal or a slight increase in the price and
the vehicle should be available within the range of $23,710 and
