The special model, which features a "Pure Red" exterior color, debuted in February at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
The base 2016 Crosstrek, which is on sale now, is priced at $22,445, including shipping.
The Crosstrek Special Edition is spun off the Crosstrek 2.0i Premium model, with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, body-colored mirrors with integrated turn signals and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The Special Edition adds red stitching on the steering wheel, shift lever and door panels, along with red interior ambient lighting.
Other details include an All-Weather package that bundles heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer, plus a power moonroof, blind-spot detection and keyless access with push-button start.
The Subaru 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine produces 148 horsepower and in the Crosstrek Special Edition is mated to a standard continuously variable transmission.
Edmunds says: This red-hot Crosstrek Special Edition will spice up Subaru showrooms as we head into the busy summer selling season.
