Vehicle Overview

Detroit MI - 2021 Subaru Crosstrek's Overview

Exterior - 2021 Subaru Crosstrek

The styling on the 2021 vs 2020 model is just more rugged. Subaru said so, and we verified it for ourselves. While the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek definitely was a dashing and handsome figure, it doesn't compare to the new model in a number of ways. First off, the 2021 model gets 18-inch machine finished wheels on a brand new, curvier design that is part gentleman, smart showman. Subaru wanted the new Crosstrek to be more athletic, and they definitely accomplished that with bolder wheel options and a revised grille that adds more punch to the design. It's slimmer, but it's more blacked out. The Crosstrek Sport is another piece of big news this year, as it gets a sport grill and amazing wheel arch moldings for a sprintier demeanor and attitude. It also has a dark gray wheel finish and gunmetal galore for everyone to be amazed by. You won't ever find quite this much style on another sport trim in this class.

Interior - 2021 Subaru Crosstrek near Detroit MI

Serving Detroit Warren Dearborn Southfield with a superior interior is what Subaru does best. This year's interior gets StarTex upholstery and yellow contrast stitching to go with a brand new paint choice: Plasma Yellow Pearl paint. Trust us when we say that this will be the definitive look for the Crosstrek for many years to come, and it's a look that wasn't even available in 2020. Another newsworthy item is the new floor mats throughout the Crosstrek. You'll find that they're made of recycled materials and fine quality. Making the world a better place is also something Subaru is about. The announcements about the 2021 Crosstrek's interior have been very secretive, and that's normally early in the cycle, but we already can see drastic improvements to the model's interior styling.

Technology continues to be at the forefront of the interior's design. You'll appreciate keyless access with push-button start and an available 8-inch Multimedia Plus infotainment system. The driver gets a power-adjustable driver's seat that gets more positioning options as time goes along. The standard configuration on the base model even gives you automatic climate control right off the bat so that the whole family is either warm or cool enough according to conditions your Crosstrek detects. This is a cabin that really monitors your environment and keeps your whole family comfortable on the journey.

By far what should excite you the most about the 2021 Crosstrek is the brand new 2.5L direct-injection Subaru Boxer engine for the brand. It's 182 horsepower of direct energy straight to your wheels. You'll really feel this one get off and running the moment you push the button and get it fired up. Best of all, it gets an amazing 34 combined MPG, taking the Crosstrek into the realm of one of the most fuel efficient SUVs on the road today. The vehicle gets a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission standard on the base model and beyond. Features like Dual-function X-MODE with Hill Descent Control give you added assurances in unstable weather and road conditions so that you never feel out of control or fail to handle the environments your Crosstrek must endure.

Safety - 2021 Subaru Crosstrek dealer

Driver EyeSight returns on the 2021 model, but you'll find that there are many changes here that give you either cheaper standard features or a host of brand new features that help you focus your attention on the road and keep away from accidents and danger. A good safety system doesn't just tell you an accident is going to happen. It alerts you to the danger, and if you fail to act, it steps in and activates to save your life and property. The brilliant Crosstrek safety system is by far better in 2021 than it was last year, as it gives you new headlamps that are smarter and even more responsive to light. EyeSight is superb as always, monitoring your blind spots, lanes, and parking situations in a way that no other vehicle on earth can. It's obvious that Subaru was intent on serving Detroit Warren Dearborn Southfield customers with a Crosstrek that is smarter on safety year after year. To do that, they had to really pull out all the stops.

We're glad that you took the time to learn more about the Crosstrek! You can contact Glassman Subaru if you have any specific questions about this remarkable model.
