- The new Subaru Crosstrek 2024 features a redesigned exterior and new interior features.
- The update includes improved driver assistance features and a larger touchscreen.
- It will go on sale sometime in 2023, and US details are still to come.
Subaru revealed the new Crosstrek 2024 today, but, as is typical of Subaru redesigns, it’s not easy to tell the difference between the new model and the one it replaces. As before, the Crosstrek is a tall subcompact crossover with plenty of ground clearance and black plastic body cladding. The biggest changes are seen at the front, where sharper, slimmer headlights and a larger front grille create a more distinctive look. Subaru also says that it has increased the amount of black plastic cladding around the wheel wells.
The new Crosstrek uses an updated version of the same platform as before, and, although we don’t have US specs yet, the Japanese market version here uses a 2.0-liter boxer-four with Subaru’s e-Boxer hybrid system which has yet to reach the United States. Subaru also hasn’t said whether the current plug-in-hybrid version of the Crosstrek will continue into the new generation. All-wheel drive, of course, will be standard equipment, and a continuously variable automatic is the only transmission option—we’ll see if the currently available US version of the manual transmission continues for the new generation, but we don’t expect it.
The updated cabin has a large, vertically oriented touchscreen, as seen on many other Subaru models. The seats are also new. The EyeSight driver assistance technology is also enhanced thanks to an improved camera system.
The new Crosstrek isn’t slated to go on sale in Japan until sometime in 2023, and is likely to arrive in the US much later. So we’ll have to wait to find out more details including the powertrain, features, and price. Expect it to start off somewhat higher than the current model, which has a base price of $24,870.
