2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
Review
The Crosstrek "limited" offers only two stereo head units-the standard unit w/o Satellite capability and the NAV system with SAT. As satellite users for several years, we made a dreadful mistake in buying this SUV without making sure the "Limited" version had SAT. Adding a mobile car unit is "cheesy" and takes up more room especially if you have a "Garmin" on the dash. An aftermarket unit can be quite pricey and can range $500-$1800 including installation. Our local Subaru dealer quoted $4500 for a new Subaru factory NAV system if available and requiring a new antenna if wiring is possible. Would have given up leather seats for cloth in order to get SAT. :-(
Favorite Features
Just owned for three months, but so far Just fine for the purpose purchased including: AWD for snow, gas mileage, handling, adequate power and acceleration, smaller and less expensive than Outback alternative as a second car.
Suggested Improvements
Obviously SAT in every head unit with using only one AM/FM/SAT antenna. Leave it up to the purchaser to subscribe to Sirius/XM! Improved backup camera for image quality and better position for keeping it clean. Overhead Sunglass holder, optional electric 6-8 seats. iPod/iPhone power/aux inputs in storage under dashboard. Currently, the inputs are in bottom of the console and awkward/difficult for access. Devise a way for the rear folding seats to lay flat. Otherwise, very pleased with the vehicle!

I completely agree with carscientious. I just picked up my Crosstrek Limited after owning a Kia Sorento. No SAT radio, no remote start, no head air bags and no back up assist for the same price as my Kia. I am stuck now for three years so it better have great gas mileage.
