Why Buy the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Initially, the Impreza-Subaru's compact sedan-offered the option of a package to make the vehicle more suitable for off-roading. Eventually, however, the package was transformed into a standalone model named the Crosstrek. The vehicle, now in its third model year with the 2018 version, is arguably the top offering in the small crossover SUV market, thanks to its standard all-wheel drive, lots of interior space, athletic handling, and terrific gas mileage with the continuous variable transmission (CVT) option. This model is redesigned in accordance with the fifth-generation Impreza, and it is split into three trims: a base-level model, the Premium, and the Limited.

Exterior - Reasons Why Buy the Crosstrek

Regarding exterior features, the 2018 model starts off with a rear spoiler, foldable power side mirrors, black-finished raised roof rails, 17-inch alloy wheels, multi-reflector halogen headlights with integrated daytime running lights to make pedestrians and fellow drivers more aware of your presence. Upgrading to the Premium or Limited adds fog lights for more penetrating illumination when needed, as well as automatic on/off ability to automatically turn on or switch off the headlights according to amount of outdoor light. The Limited gets 18-inch alloy wheels (instead of 17-inch ones); turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors; and LED-based steering responsive headlight technology for brighter, longer-lasting, and more accurate illumination.
