The new model comes in a choice of three petrol engine and two mild hybrid models.

Both variants have the 2.0L boxer engine, with either a seven step CVT for the hybrid version or 8 step Lineartronic CVT for the normal version. Both have similar power and torque outputs.

All models come with the brilliant symmetrical AWD system that Subaru is famous for and the X-Mode functionality. Combine that with 220mm of ground clearance and its easy to see why they are so popular with the more adventurous buyers.

Crosstrek also has class leading safety features with the clever EyeSight® Driver Assist system standard in all models.

Other premium features include wireless smart phone charging and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is a huge 11.6-inch vertical multi zone central touch screen, first seen in the Outback. Little luxuries like driver monitoring, dusk sensing LED headlights, and Subaru Si dive are all standard.

Pricing is from a touch under $35,000 through to around $45,000 for the top hybrid model.
