2024 Subaru Crosstrek Review: First Drive

Believe it or not, the Subaru Crosstrek is beginning its third generation as 2024 models arrive at dealerships this spring.

What's New for 2024?

Not only has it been around for longer than some might recall (2012), but Subaru’s littlest SUV is more popular than one might expect. In 2022, the Crosstrek was the bestselling Subaru in both the U.S. and Canada, accounting for 35 percent of brand sales for the latter. That is a truly impressive feat for a car so unassuming and lacking in flash or pretention. It is what it is, as the saying goes, and for Subaru that is indeed a good thing.
