A lot of people were sceptical about the Subaru XV Crosstrek when Subaru first took the covers off the vehicle but it all turns out well for Subaru as it ended up being the third best selling model in the Subaru lineup.
However, despite everything that the vehicle has to offer, some people are still not convinced and the engine could be the one to blame here. The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will be coming in with a 2.0-liter engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission or CVT. The engine will be offering about 152hp and 145lb ft of torque.
The vehicle weights about 3113lbs and a lot of consumers feel like 152hp is not enough to give the vehicle the kick it needs. The engine might be enough to get the XV Crosstrek going but the consumers were expecting more.
The Subaru Crosstrek will return about 23mpg in the city and 29mpg on the highway with the manual transmission and 27mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission.
