Planet's 2017 Crosstrek Introduction


We expect the first 2017 Crosstrek to arrive at Planet Subaru in November of this year.  Don't expect many changes. 

For 2013, Subaru introduced the first Crosstrek--an Impreza-based compact crossover with more ground clearance, off-road capability, standard equipment, and a tougher appearance than the Impreza. 
Subaru typically builds its high volume models on a five-year product cycle, and the 2017 Crosstrek will be the fifth and final year of this generation, when engineers are busy designing an all-new model rather than making changes to the previous one. 

Subaru made some pretty significant changes to last year's model during the fourth-year refresh on the 2016 model.  Th
is fourth-year refresh is also humorously known as the BMC or "big minor change."  Changes during this mid-cycle update included a new front end, modest interior changes, and new wheels.  These changes will carry the car through until an all-new Crosstrek appears as a 2018 model on a new platform.  If you want a sneak peak at the 2018 Crosstrek, check out the 2017 Impreza.  The all-new Impreza precedes the Crosstrek by a year so you can get a preview of the Crosstrek because they share most components. 
Or you can see a few concept pictures of the 2018 Crosstrek


Subaru did make some changes to the 2017 model line-up.  They discontinued Hybrid models, and added a new Premium Special Edition which adds additional equipment and style to the standard Premium. Available exclusively with Pure Red or Crystal Black Silica exterior with black badging, the SE wears 5-spoke, dark gray aluminum-alloy 17" wheels.  A distinctive interior features gloss black cabin trim appointments and red stitching on the cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and door trim. The red theme repeats for the illuminated front foot wells with aluminum-alloy pedal cover and driver footrest. Keyless Access with Push-Button Start, Blind Spot Detection / Rear Cross Traffic Alert and SiriusXM® All Access Radio (subscription required) come standard on the Special Edition.

2017 Crosstrek changes
 




2017 Crosstrek keeps current generation Eyesight.
The new Outback and Legacy offer the next generation, which includes many enhancements, including smaller color cameras and radar technology. 
Last year, Subaru introduced Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard equipment on Crosstrek Limited and Hybrid Touring models.  See them in action on an Outback.  As these technologies proliferate across the Subaru line, reducing cost through volume, we are seeing more models get the fancy stuff. 
























Eyesight cameras.











When Subaru introduces new technologies, it usually offers them on its most expensive models, but then gradually equips the whole product line. For example, Subaru offered its Vehicle Dynamics Control in 2001 only on the most expensive trim level of the Outback.  By 2009, it was standard on every Subaru.

If you want a hybrid, you'll have to go for one of our lightly used 2014, 2015, or 2016 models. 

















Appearance doesn't change.
Last year's model got a whole new front end appearance, with new grill, bumper, fascia, and headlights.  Many models got a new wheel design too. 
(See photo at top of page).  It's too expensive to make these changes every year, so wait til 2018 for a new look. 













  
 

 










Subaru typically makes some changes to the headlights and taillights during the mid-cycle refresh because they really change the look of the car without requiring expensive sheet metal redevelopment.  
Interior remains the same.
Last year's model received an update...interiors of 2.0i Premium and higher received orange stitching on the door armrests, center console, shift lever handles as well as a redesigned steering wheel.

Subaru typically makes small annual price increases, usually less than the rate of inflation.








Colors


The colors below are from the current palette.  Most of them will carry over to 2017.   

We will post the new 2017 color palette when it is released.







Take a deep dive into 2017 Crosstrek:

The versatile, fun-to-drive Crosstrek combines bold five-door design, a highly capable chassis and in-demand multimedia features. The 2.0i Crosstrek pricing starts at $21,695 with all models offering Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, 8.7-in. of ground clearance, and ample room for passengers and cargo. It is one of the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive crossover utility vehicles in America offering 33 mpg highway on Lineartronic CVT models.

All Crosstrek models include the 2.0-liter Subaru BOXER engine producing 148 hp at 6,200 rpm and 145 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,200 rpm. A 103.7-in wheelbase yields impressive interior roominess in the Subaru Crosstrek, including 35.4 inches of rear seat legroom. With the standard 60/40 split rear seatbacks folded, this versatile five-door crossover provides a flat load floor and up to 51.9 cubic feet of carrying space.

Subaru's Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) continuously and smoothly adapts to performance demand by keeping the engine in its most efficient operating range. A 6-speed manual mode with steering wheel paddle shifters allows the driver to control the transmission via six pre-set ratios. CVT is optional on the 2.0i Premium and standard on Limited. The 2.0i base model comes exclusively with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The 2017 Crosstrek upholds the Subaru tradition of outstanding value, with the 2.0i base trim including as standard a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth® control switches; power windows, door locks and side mirrors; multi-function display with fuel economy information; security system with engine immobilizer; illuminated front console storage tray; outside temperature gauge; carpeted floor mats and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Premium models start well-equipped at $22,495 and add a number of additional features, notably the All-Weather Package (heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer), body-color exterior mirrors, cargo area enhancements and upgraded interior trim. In addition, the Premium upgrades to a 6-speaker sound system, retractable cargo cover, cargo tray, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter handle and more.

For 2017, a new Premium Special Edition adds additional equipment and style to the standard Premium. Available exclusively with Pure Red or Crystal Black Silica exterior with black badging, the SE wears 5-spoke, dark gray aluminum-alloy 17" wheels.  A distinctive interior features gloss black cabin trim appointments and red stitching on the cloth upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and door trim. The red theme repeats for the illuminated front foot wells with aluminum-alloy pedal cover and driver footrest. Keyless Access with Push-Button Start, Blind Spot Detection / Rear Cross Traffic Alert and SiriusXM® All Access Radio (subscription required) come standard. The Special Edition is priced at $25,795.

In addition to having the Lineartronic CVT as standard, the $25,195 Subaru Crosstrek Limited adds leather-trimmed upholstery, automatic climate control, auto on/off headlights and a rear seat armrest with dual cup holders. The Limited exclusively features an insulation-glass windshield for a quieter ride, an upgraded instrument cluster with LCD color display and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. The Limited trim's standard Welcome Lighting automatically activates cabin illumination and exterior lights as the driver approaches or departs the vehicle.

Two STARLINK packages are available and are among the most affordable in the industry. The STARLINK Safety Plus Package includes SOS Emergency Assistance, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification, Maintenance Notifications, Monthly Vehicle Health Report and Diagnostic Alerts. For even greater peace of mind, the STARLINK Safety Plus & Security Plus Package adds Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service, Vehicle Security Alarm Notification, Remote Lock/Unlock, Remote Horn and Lights and Remote Vehicle Locator.
            
The STARLINK Multimedia systems integrates Cloud Applications, including Calendar, Stitcher™, Music Player, News and Weather and iHeart® Radio. The standard STARLINK 6.2" Multimedia system in the Crosstrek 2.0i and 2.0i Premium trims provides a multitude of music and information sources from a 6.2-in. multi-function touch screen display with single-touch gesture control. The display also functions for the standard Rear-Vision Camera.
 
STARLINK 6.2" integrates AM/FM stereo and HD Radio®; Radio Data Broadcast System; single-disc in-dash CD player; Subaru STARLINK smartphone integration with Aha™ Infotainment, Pandora® and STARLINK Cloud Applications; Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming; iPod® control capability and iTunes® Tagging capability; a USB port and aux. input jack; and four speakers (six speakers on Premium).

The STARLINK 7.0" system, standard for the 2.0i Limited trims, works through 7-inch touch screen display with multi-touch control that offers swipe and scrolling gesture control. This system offers 6-speaker audio and all of the features of the base system plus voice-activated controls; SiriusXM® All Access Radio and Travel Link® (subscriptions required); a vehicle information display; SMS text messaging, iTunes Tagging capability and dual USB ports. The STARLINK 7.0" Multimedia system also offers an upgrade to voice-controlled navigation with SiriusXM Traffic® (subscriptions required for SiriusXM products.)




Crosstreks through the years:

Subaru technically introduced the Crosstrek name in 2013, but Subaru debuted its "mini-ute" as the Impreza Outback Sport in 1996.  Through four generations, the basic formula remains the same:  start with an Impreza hatchback, raise the suspension, and give it a rugged exterior.  Subaru dropped the "Outback Sport" moniker for 2012 after years of confusion with the larger Outback which is built on the mid-size Legacy platform.
 

   
2013 through 2017


Subaru hit a homerun with this most recent generation.  Introducing a continuously variable transmission and new 2.0 liter engine has lifted fuel economy to 34 mpg highway.  Other new features include the optional Eyesight driver assistance system. Subaru hit the styling bullseye, producing one of the coolest looking utility vehicles available.  Outward visibility remains outstanding.  Subaru's first hybrid powerplant appeared in the 2014 Crosstrek.





 
2008 through 2011









Subaru stretched the wheelbase on this generation, appealing to a much broader audience who required more room for people, dogs, and gear.    



 
2002 through 2007








The previous generation lacked refinement, so Subaru upped its game with a standard 2.5 liter engine, modern interior, and side airbags.  Exterior styling went from weird to handsome.   





 
 
1996 through 2001






Subaru introduced the Impreza Outback Sport in 1996 with a 2.2 liter
Boxer engine by adding a long-travel suspension and styling we call "rugged whizbang."  Added equipment included crossbars, hood scoop, two tone paint, and phat fog lights.  It looks a little goofy today, but this car really pioneered the mini-ute craze in the industry that is just now coming into full bloom.
