    2024 Subaru Crosstrek


    At this year’s Chicago Auto Show, Subaru debuted the all-new, 3rd gen 2024 Crosstrek with new exterior and interior designs, improved performance, enhanced safety features, and updated multimedia technology.

    For 2024, the Crosstrek will be available in Base, Premium, Sport and Limited trim levels with a starting price of $24,995 (same MSRP as the 2023 Base model equipped with a CVT).

    2024 Subaru Crosstrek Design

    The 2024 Crosstrek arrives with 8.7” of ground clearance while still maintaining a low step-in height for both front and rear passengers.

    The new exterior uses a frameless hexagonal grille, compact headlights, black wheel arch cladding and rocker panels.

    An air outlet at the trailing edge of the front wheel opening allows air to exit from the wheel well more freely, contributing to reduced lift on the front wheels and improved driving stability. Another air outlet added at each side of rear bumper reduces body sway due to air trapped behind the bumper.

    Improved front seat design increases overall comfort. A focused effort on reducing specific frequency ranges results in a quieter cabin. Rear dark-tint privacy glass is standard.

    The Crosstrek features 60:40 folding rear seatbacks. With both seatbacks down, the cargo area increases to 54.7 cu. ft. of useable space. The 41.0-inch-wide rear gate opening with low liftover height allows easy loading and unloading. Standard fixed cross bar mounting points (and standard raised roof rails on Premium and higher) add more cargo-carrying options.


    2024 Subaru Crosstrek Drivetrain

    The Base and Premium are equipped with a direct-injected 152-hp and 145 lb.-ft. of torque 2.0L SUBARU BOXER engine. The Sport and Limited arrive with a 182 hp and 178 lb.-ft. of torque 2.5L BOXER engine. Standard on all trim levels is a Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with smoother and quieter performance. The Premium, Sport and Limited trims feature a manual mode with steering wheel paddle shifters that allow the driver to control the transmission via eight pre-set ratios. <-- I would be scared to death of these things.

    Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system provides an even faster response time, more agile handling, and better control on- and off-road. Sport and Limited trims include the dual-function X-MODE for increased capability in a wider range of conditions. All models feature Incline Start Assist, which briefly holds the vehicle while the driver pulls away from a stop on a hill.

    The Base and Premium come standard with 17” alloys while the Sport and Limited include 18” alloys.

    The 2024 Crosstrek also receives a version of the WRX’s dual-pinion electronic power steering rack, providing a more direct steering feel.


    2024 Subaru Crosstrek Safety

    The 2024 Crosstrek has been enhanced with 10-percent higher torsional rigidity. A full inner frame construction with stronger welding and additional structural adhesive contribute to better body rigidity and lower weight. These updates deliver a smoother ride and quieter cabin.

    Standard on all 2024 Crosstrek models is the latest version of the award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. The enhanced system operates faster and under a greater range of conditions. These improvements are thanks to a wider field of view, updated control software and the addition of an electric brake booster. EyeSight can identify bicycles and pedestrians at intersections sooner and, when necessary, alerts the driver and applies braking to avoid collisions.

    Additional available active safety features include Reverse Automatic Braking and Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

    Automatic Emergency Steering is now included on models equipped with Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. This safety feature works with EyeSight and Blind-Spot Detection to assist with steering control to help avoid a collision within a lane at speeds less than 50 mph.

    Standard Rear Seat Reminder is designed to help prevent child and/or pet entrapment by alerting the driver to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle.


    2024 Subaru Crosstrek Convenience

    All trim levels feature Remote Keyless Access; TPMS with Individual Wheel Display; Steering Responsive LED Headlamps with Automatic High Beam; Welcome Lighting; and power door locks, windows and side mirrors.

    The vehicle’s climate control system has been updated to focus on occupied seats (vs. entire cabin), for improved comfort and fuel economy. Dual-zone heating/cooling control is standard on all models.

    Additional available comfort features include a wireless phone charger in the center console and all-weather package with heated seats, mirrors and wipers.

    Standard on Crosstrek is a center information display with the SUBARU STARLINK dual 7.0” touchscreens. The top screen controls smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; Rear Vision Camera; SiriusXM All-Access Radio and Travel Link; and HD Radio. The bottom screen provides controls for climate and vehicle settings. <-- Buttons missing. :(

    For the first time, the SUBARU STARLINK 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system is available and includes wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto with full screen display. The multimedia system also works as a center information display with combination meter integration and on-screen controls for audio, climate and vehicle functions. <-- Not a good idea imho. Additional features include Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming connectivity; AM/FM stereo; rear vision camera; SiriusXM All-Access Radio and SiriusXM Travel Link (4-month free Platinum Plan); HD Radio; and over-the-air updates.


    The 11.6-inch STARLINK Multimedia Navigation system is also available and includes voice-activated navigation powered by TomTom <-- That goes back a few years - and SiriusXM Travel Link (3-year free subscription). The navigation system has what3words (W3W) integration, an innovative location technology that provides a simple way to communicate precise locations using just three simple words. Google Maps via your phones Android Auto or Apple Car Play will be better.

    The available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security Connected Services offer SOS Emergency Assistance, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification, Maintenance Notifications, Monthly Vehicle Health Report and Diagnostic Alerts, Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service, Vehicle Security Alarm Notification. Available convenience features include Remote Lock/Unlock, Remote Horn and Lights and Remote Vehicle Locator. New services for Crosstrek include Valet Mode, Trip Log and Driving Journal, and Remote Vehicle Configuration.

    For the first time, Crosstrek production will occur in the U.S. The 2.5L Sport and Limited will be produced at Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. in Lafayette, Indiana and will begin arriving in Subaru retailers this summer. Production of the 2.0L Base and Premium will continue at the Subaru plant in Gunma, Japan and will be available at Subaru retailers this spring.
