2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek 2.0i Premium Manual User Reviews
Perfect combination of utility/comfortBy John Stewart (I am an Owner), Jun. 09, 2014This is a very impressive combination of utility, practicality, and comfort. The proportions of the car work extremely well and the ride height gives it an aggressive look. The all-wheel drive system ... more
Part crossover, part wagonBy Paul Hostfeld (I am an Owner), Jun. 09, 2014Buying the Subaru XV Crosstrek was a compromise between my wife and myself. I still wanted something that was somewhat fun to drive, but needed the extra space that only a wagon, crossover, or SUV cou... more
2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek OverviewAll XV Crosstreks come with a 2.0L 4-cylinder boxer engine making 148 horsepower. This engine is mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which is able to mimic the function of a traditional automatic while maximizing fuel efficiency. This is how the XV Crosstrek is able to achieve its stellar 33mpg highway figure. Both drivetrains come equipped with all-wheel-drive, a specialty of Subaru.
Subaru is serious about making sure the XV Crosstrek comes well-equipped from the factory. Accordingly the vehicle comes in two trim levels: Premium and Limited. Premium equipped cars come with plenty of useful features. The standard stereo has six speakers, iPod controllability, an auxiliary input jack, a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity with live audio streaming. Interior amenities include heated seats, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise control, a tilting and telescoping wheel, a removable cargo mat with plenty of tie down hooks, a hill assist function to keep the car from rolling back on inclines, keyless entry, power windows and door locks and of course air conditioning. The Premium model comes standard with a 5-speed manual, but the CVT transmission is optional.
Limited XV Crosstreks come standard with the CVT transmission, automatic climate control, automatic headlights, leather upholstery, a 4.3 inch LCD screen, nicer instruments and a backup camera. Options on both models include a navigation system and a power moonroof.
Amenities aside, the XV is simply a good package. All-wheel-drive vehicles must make accommodations for a driveshaft and rear differential, but fold down the 60/40 rear seats and the XV reveals a flat load floor with nearly 52 cubic feet of carrying space. Rear seat legroom is also impressive with space comparable to many mid-sized family sedans.
Subaru has taken particular care with the safety features of the XV Crosstrek. It has all the standard electronic safety nets, including traction control, anti-lock brakes and stability control. The anti-lock brakes also feature a panic braking sensor that anticipates a panic braking situation and immediately applies full braking load. The front airbags are dual stage and include a mechanism to detect how close the driver is sitting to the steering wheel, delaying airbag deployment accordingly.
