Just spotted the first display model at the dealership when I went to pick up my Ascent from the service department.

Snapped a few pics as I was rushing home, the wife got this exact colour and model on order.

2024 Crosstrek Onyx in Offshore Blue

It was getting dark so the colours don't look as vibrant as it should. I like the subtle yellow/gold trim around the fogs better than the US Sport trim.

Also interesting to note in the specifications that the Onyx and Limited trims come with "Falken" tires on 18" alloy rims and not "Yokohama".
Yeah, the US Sport is also switching to 18" wheels. Falken Ziex are the same as the previous Limited had. From the round of reviews today, it looks like the US Base and Premium will continue to have 17" wheels with Yokohama Geolandars.
Do you happen to have pictures or did you see the interior seat design? I am trying to figure out if they have the same amount of yellow as what is shown on the Sport trim for 2024 US Market, or if it will just have yellow stitching. From the tiny preview picture on Subaru.ca it is hard to tell for sure, but looks like it may be the same as the US Sport seat for 2024.
Thanks.

From what I've been looking into, it sounds like it'll be the same interior as the US sport. The data sheet seems to like up well with what we've seen so far.
Yeah, my wife just sold her 1st gen 2013 back to the dealer when they called back in Oct. She'll miss the original. There was 2023 Sport still in the lot but not in a colour she'd prefer, so we pre-ordered this one.

She's not a fan of all the sharp angles of today's auto styling (I think Toyota/Lexus started the trend).

Also now that the Badge of Ownership program is now in Canada, we can't wait to get our VIN to order it. It'll be Subaru no. 5 between the both of us.

Thanks DCYVR for posting the exterior pics of the Onyx in Canada. I'm trying to find out what the premium grey cloth interior looks like in the Canadian Onyx and can not find any pics online (can only find pics of the 2024 Canadian black leather interior on the Limited model). What dealership had this Onyx in stock? I'd like to give them a call to ask about the interior.

We currently have a 2021 Forester Touring model. Great vehicle but a little large for our needs (2 seniors). We have the exact vehicle, same color, you have photographed on order. Your pictures are great. I would like to obtain phots of its interior. Thanks for your efforts in posting the pictures.

Hi, Docksteader Subaru in Vancouver. It wasn't actually theirs... Subaru Canada was shooting commercials with it.

You can call their sales dept to see if it's still there or not. I attached brochure screenshots in the next post.

I believe it was similar interior to the US Sport trim with the yellow stitching.

Here's a screenshot from a pre-release PDF brochure, I don't think the colour is accurate.

Thanks to everyone for the replies - super helpful! From the updated Subaru.ca website, it looks like the interior of the all 2024 Canadian Touring models will have black premium cloth and the interior of all the Onyx models will have grey premium cloth. Also from the pic of the Canadian pre-release brochure PDF, it looks like the Onyx grey cloth seats will be styled the same as the US Sport model. In case it may be helpful to someone, here are links to some photo galleries of US models that may give a better idea of what the black and grey cloth interiors look like.

The first shipment from Japan has arrived.

Our dealer just called my wife, she can take possession of her Onyx this weekend (on order since Oct).

It just sucks that the pricing is MSRP and no deals even for Subaru VIP pricing for past/existing customers 馃檨

That's great news dcyvr about your vehicle coming in! We've been told months to go before we'll see any model of 2024 Crosstrek here in northern Alberta.
Hey, if you've got the time and inclination, please feel free to post interior pics of your wife's new Onyx. :) Would love to see!

Polly as per request (forgive me I'm not a good auto photographer), but here's a couple of exterior and close ups of the grey interior. Hopefully that gives you a good real world visual of how the Onyx looks in the flesh.

Thanks Polly. Hopefully you'll get your Onyx from Japan soon. 馃槈

Here's her initial impressions after previously selling her 1st gen (2013) XV Crosstrek back in Oct - she's been using my 2019 Ascent while waiting.

She appreciates going back the familiar size of an old friend (she didn't scratch my paint, but my tire sidewalls are another story - fortunately my rims were unscathed 馃檪).

She loves all the new tech she's been missing the past decade - wireless Apple Car Play, wireless charging, 3rd gen Eyesight, electronic e-brakes, wireless key FOB.

I'm sure idle stop isn't very popular feature, but it's much improved over the previous Subaru courtesy cars I've driven. This one doesn't "jolt" you abruptly when it restarts the engine. She looks forward to visiting the gas station less often vs my Ascent. The Onyx's 182hp is peppier than her 1st gen that had only 148hp.

Cabin noise, suspension and steering is is much better that her 1st gen for sure... However, after getting accustomed to driving my Ascent which is tuned more for family hauling with a plusher ride with a longer wheelbase, and larger tires -- she's not used to the tighter steering response/feel and firmer ride of the Crosstrek. HomeLink garage control... standard on my Ascent; this rear view mirror doesn't appear to be an available add-on option yet.

I downloaded the 2024 Owners Manual since I have one on order. According to it, you can turn off the start/stop feature via an Infotainment menu. Many of the previous physical Button controls are on a menu now.
Pgs 206-206 lists a lot of what you can control, in particular pg 356 addresses the Start/Stop feature.

I didn't open it because it wanted to install a browser extension. Does it turn it off permanently? If so, it seems Subaru have been paying attention. The folks selling eliminators won't be pleased.
Reading the notes on the page, It will probably have to be done after each restart:

If the engine is restarted when the Auto Start Stop system is not operational and the ignition switch has been turned to the 鈥淥FF鈥 position, the Auto Start Stop system will turn on again.

I will not be able to confirm this until I receive delivery in June.

That's ridiculous! Who wants to scroll through all those menu items every time they start the car!

The functionality is the same as it is in the current Crosstrek; the only difference is that the physical switch has been replaced by an onscreen menu option.

This means that the $30 eliminator solution we鈥檝e been talking about recently isn鈥檛 going to work in the 2024 Crosstrek. The $100 one might鈥
