2016 Subaru Crosstrek SUV 2.0i Limited PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Love my Crosstrek! There are some places they could improve on like the acceleration. If you're looking for a performance car, don't get this car! It's a 4-cylinder car and it doesn't have much power. The audio is sub-performance as well. The car does have some slick features like the app it comes with (Pandora, etc). The exterior looks sporty and you really can't tell the difference between the 2014, 2015 & the 2016 models. I love the gas mileage with an average 30/gal.

2016 Subaru Crosstrek SUV 2.0i Premium PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

This is obviously an overall excellent car. The symmetrical all-wheel drive cannot be beat. The styling both exterior and interior is reason enough to purchase this car. But let's look at the bad things that Subaru really needs to work on. First, the durability of the plastic, both interior and exterior, is very week. I have had my car for less than a half year and I treat it like it is a delicate Jewel. Yet the plastic everywhere is just scratched and gouged like crazy. The grey plastic on the armrests is chipping and being rubbed off even though, again, I treat it extremely extremely gingerly. The gray plastic around the shifter is already scratched to hack as well just from cleaning it. It is driving me crazy that this car's interior is already as bad as cars that I've had that were 10 plus years old. On the topic of interior, the carpet is already falling apart. The next thing that Subaru needs to work on with the Crosstrek is the engine's power. You would think that a car with acceleration worse than a golf cart would get much better than 30 miles to the gallon but it does not. Subaru has excellent superchargers and WRX models so it seems like they could put some of that into the Crosstrek to make it a capable vehicle. Third on my list of complaint is overall handling. It is great that it is a car with a lot of clearance but you shouldn't have to sacrifice keeping it between the lines on the highway to get that extra couple of inches. It is very wobbly and handles a lot like a boat. My final complaint I would say is the manufacturer's warranty. You basically have to get the extended warranty at a couple grand extra. Subarus can easily run a quarter-million miles but they can also easily run into expensive repairs in the first hundred thousand. There should definitely be a hundred thousand mile warranty from the factory. These complaints are probably pretty minor compared to other vehicles. This is a really nice car that I am in love with and I cannot wait to get it into the snow next winter.

Review

I wanted a smaller AWD vehicle with the safety technology offered with the Eyesight option. I also have a 2015 Outback with Eyesight, and it makes driving so much safer, especially for my wife who is blind in one eye.

Not sure why we are all so hung up on power, this has plenty to get you where you need to go. If you want power buy a sports car or Jeep SRT.
