Despite being a relative newcomer to the party, Subaru’s Crosstrek crossover vehicle has become a worthy challenger to more established options. With the 2016 model now available in dealerships that offer Subaru vehicles in and around Pascagoula, MS, many people are wondering if it’s time to upgrade.
To be sure, the 2016 Crosstrek offers many excellent features that are worth upgrading for, but if you are to take away three things from it, it’s these three impressive numbers:
34 Miles-Per-Gallon EPA Rating
Fueling your car remains one of the biggest on-going costs of car ownership, and a vehicle that gets the most out of every tank is a boon to all drivers. Luckily, the 2016 Crosstrek fits the bill, offering a staggering 34 miles per gallon during highway drives. If you want to cut down on fuel expenses--and spend more time on the road instead of gas stations--the new Crosstrek should be an attractive option.
8.7 Inches of Ground Clearance
Of course, the 2016 Crosstrek isn’t just great for highway drives--it’s a surprisingly capable off-road vehicle, too. Perhaps no number better encapsulates this ability better than the 8.7 inches of ground clearance it offers. So whether you’re fording streams, conquering log-strewn paths, or boulder-laced roads, you won’t have to worry about damaging your undercarriage.
There’s no denying that a car is a huge investment, but nothing is as valuable as the safety of your passengers. That’s why Subaru equipped the new Impreza with not just one, not just two, not just three, but seven airbags. These include front-seat airbags to protect drivers, knee-level airbags to protect this vulnerable part of the body, as well as full-curtain airbags to ensure all-around protection.
