The next-generation 2018 Subaru Crosstrek XV will get a new style that might make the crossover slightly less awkward-looking.
The new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will make its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March and the Japanese automaker has released a teaser image previewing what to expect.
We can see in the shadowy image above that the second-generation Crosstrek gets more refined styling that makes the vehicle look a bit more mature and upmarket. Expect the headlights and tail lights to get an angular new look and for the car to take design cues from the XV Concept we saw last year (below).

As what is essentially a jacked-up Impreza, we can expect that this new Crosstrek will get all the same upgrades, meaning the interior will be a lot less boring and use higher quality materials, while the CVT will likely get tweaked to feel more natural and responsive. The Impreza also got chassis upgrades that improve driving dynamics and make it safer in a crash, so the Crosstrek will also benefit from these changes.
