The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek is a fusion vehicle with the capabilities and comfort of a full-sized SUV and the easy maneuverability of a small sedan. Sure, it does look a little more subtle and modest than its competitors, but when it comes to overall driving, it can outperform them all.
Active Safety Features
The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek earns good ratings when it comes to safety, which is rare for cars at the same price point. The IIHS awarded it with their Top Safety Pick+ designation. Meanwhile, the federal regulators has given it an overall five-star rating.
All Crosstrek models come fully equipped with side-curtain bags and rollover sensors. The Limited models get the EyeSight packages together with Subaru’s many other impressive safety technologies, including automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. The Premium trim, on the other hand, provides the EyeSight packages as an option.
Styling and Design
Subaru has gotten more adventurous with the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek’s styling and design compared to its predecessors. It is undeniably more handsome now than ever before, with its rugged yet modern look. It has a tough-looking roof rack, a lower-body cladding that is meant to accentuate its overall appearance, a redesigned grille and a lot more exterior improvements. Simply put, the 2016 Subaru Crosstrek is a subtle mix of contemporary and utilitarian.
