I am not sure how much horsepower it will have. I heard it's a 1.5 Turbo?Just noticed 275 pounds more weight, which is about how much I saved when I switched from my Forester to my Crosstrek Sport. That's a noticeable difference when it comes to acceleration. This is not welcome news.
We're all going to have to wait probably until the November LA Auto show to know more about engine options. Current global model info I've seen thus far is the 2.0L mild hybrid, but that won't come to North America.I am not sure how much horsepower it will have. I heard it's a 1.5 Turbo?
Can someone confirm this?
My guess is the 2024 model will hit dealers by Fall 2023 so if you're looking to buy in Spring 2023 you should be fine.So, seeing this just confirms what I was already thinking ... I want a current generation Crosstrek, not the new one. (I have always had reservations about buying any newly introduced model car or any major revision to an existing model in the first year, as there are always bugs to be worked out.) Does anyone have any idea how long the 2023 model will still be available in the US market? I'm looking at probably buying next spring, but would move up my timetable if necessary to not have to buy the 2024 model.
I liked the wilderness because they have mechanical improvements. Now that I saw the new CT on YouTube more. It is not ugly as sin ugly just the same ugliness that people will get used to Subaru ugliness 🥷You must not like the Wilderness trim on the Outback, eh? Wait until the Crosstrek Wilderness comes out and it's 90% cladding and only 10% body color, haha.
Same. I could care less about screen choice, etc. since I barely look at it unless I'm using Android Auto. I don't use HVAC controls or adjust them while driving and really the only thing I look at currently between the screen and the higher one on the dash is my fuel economy info. If they had the button on the steering wheel to talk to the system to adjust climate control (my 2015 legacy had this), then you definitely don't need the HVAC knobs.Guess I'm in the minority here, but I really like the bold, new look! It's still immediately recognizable as a Crosstrek but now it actually has some style and personality!
I always thought the first gen was kinda generic looking. The second gen upped the ante in the design department, but still is a bit bland for my taste.The next gen looks to rectify that!
Do some of the exterior design details look a little overdone? Yeah, I'll admit to that. Do I love every last design decision inside and out? No, especially not the lack of physical HVAC controls. Overall though, I think Subaru knocked it out of the park with the styling!
