Legendary engineering, remarkable performance

At the core of the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek is the stuff of legend. The choice of two SUBARU BOXER® engines, both capable of stirring performance. The world-famous Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system and its incredible surefootedness. A low centre of gravity and superior strength created by the Subaru Global Platform. And a long-travel independent suspension developed over decades of motorsport experience. This core technology gives the Crosstrek superior handling, genuine all-road/all-weather capability and a level of confidence behind the wheel that is unrivalled in this class of vehicle.

The world-renowned SUBARU BOXER® engine

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek is available with the choice of two direct-injection SUBARU BOXER® engines. The naturally aspirated 2.0L 4-cylinder is offered on the Convenience, Touring and Sport trim levels while the Limited and new Outdoor trim levels offer the option of the new, naturally aspirated 2.5L 4-cylinder. Both engines feature Dual Active Valve Control, direct-injection and a great thermal management system. Coupled that with the latest weight-saving measures and advanced technologies, they combine to boost efficiency, reduce emissions, improve acceleration and heighten driver engagement. All models fitted with the Lineartronic CVT include the SI-DRIVE® engine management system with its eco-friendly Intelligent (I) mode and more responsive Sports (S) mode.

Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

Transmissions + Symmetrical AWD

The Crosstrek is available with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), each designed to work with different versions of the legendary Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system. These combinations create stellar fuel efficiency and optimum response to the complete range of driving conditions, from dicing with big city traffic to escaping along the nearest open road.

6-speed Manual Transmission (6MT)

This transmission is linked to a viscous-coupling limited-slip centre differential that provides near neutral handling and maximum control. Crisp, intuitive and direct, the 6-speed manual is tailor-made for those seeking sporty satisfaction behind the wheel. The transmission also includes Hill Start Assist, which helps prevent rolling backward when starting on inclines.

Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission)

This technologically advanced transmission incorporates a wide range of gear ratios, Auto Stepped Speed Control (which mimics how a traditional automatic shifts) and lightweight materials. These features combine to create superior response, driveability, quietness and fuel efficiency. The CVT is linked to a multi-plate transfer clutch AWD system that offers predictable handling and shifts torque to the rear wheels under hard acceleration or in low-traction conditions. All versions of the CVT come equipped with Hill Start Assist; some trim levels also feature paddle shifters and an 8-speed manual mode.

X-Mode®

Most versions of the 2021 Crosstrek equipped with the CVT feature standard X-MODE®, which makes it easier to tackle big adventures. With the push of a button, the system assumes control of the engine, transmission, AWD system, brakes and other critical components to help the driver navigate the trickiest driving conditions and the steepest of inclines with greater confidence and increased safety. The new Outdoor trim level comes equipped with dual-function X-MODE®, which lets the driver select either the snow/dirt setting or a deep snow/mud setting to better deal with the conditions.

Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Hill Decent Control

Hill Descent Control

When the X-MODE® system is activated, Hill Descent Control* automatically maintains a constant speed when travelling down steep declines. With this feature, the driver can focus exclusively on steering and negotiating curves in the road, confident that all the braking and speed control requirements are taken care of.

All-new chassis, more striking agility

The Crosstrek is equipped with a lightweight, ultra-rigid chassis that helps create a smooth ride and unsurpassed capability over rough roads. This popular performer features a tight turning circle, low centre of gravity, wide track and long-travel fully independent suspension system. These elements give this compact crossover the precise steering, superior handling capabilities and supreme comfort of a much larger vehicle.

 
Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Subaru Global Platform

Subaru Global Platform

The Subaru Global Platform is a proprietary design that absorbs approximately 40% more crash energy than the previous generation vehicle platform. The design utilizes high-tensile material throughout, a strengthened structure at the sides and back, and reinforced joints to help create an incredibly robust and uniform safety cell. This ultra-strong platform also reduces twisting forces on the frame and slashes vibration and resonance throughout the body, steering, floor and seats. Together with a low centre of gravity overall and the fully independent suspension system, the Subaru Global Platform also creates a highly responsive and precise driving experience with improved straight-line stability.

Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Front Suspension

Front Suspension

The MacPherson® strut-type front suspension system generates superior stability, response and driver feedback. A k-shaped cross-member brace and other refinements further help to reduce lateral flex and vibration, a distinctive design usually found only on high-performance sports cars. When paired with the healthy 220 mm of ground clearance, this suspension system gives the Crosstrek excellent capability over rough roads and creates an inspired choice for all types of adventures in and out of the city.

Subaru Crosstrek 2021 Rear Suspension

Rear Suspension

This double-wishbone rear suspension system utilizes a stabilizer bar to create a smooth ride and a truly stable feeling, especially in the corners. The system is engineered to reduce noise and vibration, while increasing control and stability. The rear stabilizer bar is mounted to the body instead of through rubber bushings, which helps keep body roll to a minimum and creates an even more composed driving experience.
