2020 Subaru Crosstrek Gets More Safety Tech Standard

Subaru is continuing the steady evolution of its small crossover. Meet the improved 2020 Subaru Crosstrek.

The new model year brings with it a small price increase across the board, but counters with additional standard safety equipment. The base model is up $250, while the range-topping Hybrid model sees only $150 added to its MSRP.

Chief amongst this year’s new additions is Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist tech suite, now standard on all CVT-equipped Crosstreks. EyeSight includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and pre-collision braking. Previously, this was an $845 (or more) option, so the 2020 model is already ahead of the game on the value front.

CVT models gain two other bits of tech in the form of automatic start-stop and SI-Drive. The latter offers “Intelligent” and “Sport” driving modes, which alter the throttle response for efficiency or attitude, respectively. Power remains unchanged at 152-hp, or 148-hp combined for the Hybrid.

The interior gains standard automatic climate control as well as automatic door locks. There’s also a Rear Seat Reminder to make sure you don’t forget a little person or furry friend back there when leaving the car. The Premium trim offers the option of a six-way power-adjustable driver seat too.
