New Powertrain

Starting with the powertrain, the 2021 Crosstrek equips you with a 2.5-liter 182 horsepower BOXER engine, which is now standard on the Sport and the Limited trim levels. This engine is paired with a Lineartronic® CVT transmission and gets a combined fuel economy rating of 29 miles per gallon.

Capability Features on the 2021 Crosstrek

The Sport trim comes with the dual-function X-MODE multi-terrain drive mode system. This allows the Crosstrek to better handle different terrain types such as snow, dirt, deep snow, and mud. X-MODE also comes with hill descent control to help the vehicle handle steep downward grades.

Sport Trim Special Updates

The Sport trim is now more distinct than ever with its unique interior upholstery. This upholstery features water-repellent, durable StarTex® material highlighted with yellow stitching. On the Sport trim exterior, the Crosstrek receives sport-type 17-inch alloy wheels and special Sport badging.

Updated EyeSight System

EyeSight is the popular available suite of driver-assist features found on many Subaru models. For the 2021 model year, the Crosstrek receives some upgrades to its available EyeSight system. New features include new Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering. This new update joins other top features such as Lane Departure Prevention, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and Lead Vehicle Start Alert.

A Leader In Compact Crossovers

For years, the Subaru Crosstrek has been one of the most capable compact crossovers in its class. That's because the Crosstrek is one of the only compact vehicles to come standard with an all-wheel-drive system. Also, the Crosstrek features a high ground clearance and all-terrain tires to make it a capable off-road and all-weather vehicle.
