Subaru Crosstrek 2018-2021

The 2020 Crosstrek is part of the second generation and continues its appeal to adventurous types with its function over form mentality. It should be considered when looking at crossovers and SUVs for its all-terrain performance and no-frills function.

It's nearest rivals are the Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue Sport, Hyundai Kona, and Honda HR-V.

Which Crosstrek does Edmunds recommend?

Because the base engine is so lackluster, we recommend upgrading to the new Sport trim level. It gets the new 2.5-liter engine, which significantly improves the driving experience. The Sport also comes with simulated leather upholstery, heated front seats and unique styling flares. On top of that, we recommend adding the optional 8-inch touchscreen.
