Car Review: 2017 Subaru XV Crosstrek
This weekend, my Forester went in to Williams Subaru to get some work done under warranty. Because they wouldn't be able to get to it until Monday, I got a loaner. I had a choice between a Legacy, Forester, and an XV. I'd never driven the XV, so I chose that.
|The Subaru Crosstrek fills the gap between the Impreza family Sedan, and the Forester Full-Size Crossover SUV. This one, a 2017 2.0i Premium, starts at about $23,000 before any options. This color is called Quartz Blue Metallic.|
|Powered by a 148hp 2.0L H-4 Boxer engine mated to a 6-speed CVT transmission, this car is rated at 26mpg combined (the same as my 06). Like my 06, the Crosstrek has Symmetrical all-wheel-drive.|
|The rear cargo area is spacious with the seats up (22.3 Cubic Feet), and even more so with the 60/40 split folding rear seat folded down (51.9 cubic feet).|
