Used 2016 Subaru Crosstrek Pricing

2016 Highlights

The 2016 Subaru Crosstrek receives mildly revised front-end styling and loses the "XV" that used to be at the beginning of its name. Subaru's Starlink telematics suite with emergency services makes its Crosstrek debut, as do a few new safety technologies (blind-spot monitoring, lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic alert). Minor interior trim tweaks and upgrades round out the changes.

See other years


  • Standard all-wheel drive and a tall ride height give the Crosstrek relatively strong off-road capabilities
  • there's plenty of room for adults in front and rear
  • gets pretty good fuel economy.


  • Underperforming engine means it's one of the slowest in the class
  • the CVT produces tiresome engine noise, especially when you're getting on the highway
  • sound system is outdated and substandard compared to rivals
  • hybrid model doesn't justify its added cost.

Edmunds review is wildly overly critical
The cons pointed out by edmunds above are not accurate and it's not even clear which vehicles have been compared to the Crosstrek. In the mini utility class of vehicles that get decent fuel mileagethe crosstreks engine power is actually comparable (see the Honda HRV for example) Okay edmunds, the crosstrek is underpowered if you're comparing it to say the jeep renegade, but the renegade also gets far worse mpg. Next, the sound system is absolutely fine unless you want to listen to classical and hear each breath of the first violinist between measures. it's not a Harmon Khardon system but then again were aren't rating a Mercedes or BMW. Lastly, edmunds acceleration critique makes it seem like the crosstrek barely outruns Barney rubble in the flinstones car which simply isn't true. There is plenty of power as I've survived many a Los Angeles highway and dusty backroad hazards. Come on edmunds, be a little less partial next time.
Not too big, not to small, just right
Criticisms of this car I've read about are: noisy ride, CVT noise, poor acceleration. I must disagree. We enjoyed our 2014 Forester, but disliked the infotainment/navigation system and the noisy, rough ride at highway speeds. We traded for the 2016 Crosstrek because it offers great ground clearance, because it drives more like a car than a taller SUV, resale value is superb and the exterior design is just cool--nothing like most boxier competitors. Comparing it to our 2014 Forester, Honda HRV and a few other small/compact/subcompact SUV's, the Crosstrek is far better. Price points for various trim levels are excellent. The ride both in town and on the highway is smooth, the interior is quiet (apparently Subaru made major improvement in NVH recently), the seats are extremely comfortable (even though no power seats or lumbar support are offered,) entry and exit are great with a high hip point, visibility is excellent and it's a nimble car to drive around town. We don't notice any CVT noise. Acceleration is smooth and non-eventful. Yes, more power would be nice, but we in no way feel challenged for lack of power--except occasionally when trying to pass in fast moving highway traffic. Most important is the Eyesight system. This has been upgraded since our 2014 Forester and each and every feature makes me wonder how anyone can live without it. The interior is not plush, but it beats the competition, ergonomics are excellent, and storage space in the back with seats up or down is more than competitive in its class. My only complaint so far is that the power steering feels very light and over boosted at all speed levels. Also I wish Subaru would make navigation an option on the Premium edition as it does with Eyesight. In short, with just a few quibbles, the Crosstrek is just the right size, looks great, drives well, provides a comfortable ride, it's versatile and Subaru's legendary quality and retained value sealed the deal for us.
Love this car
I test drove the Rav4, the CX5, and the Jeep Renegade before deciding on the XV. It was by far the most comfortable, smooth ride, with no tip-over feeling whenever I made a turn. I don't know what noisy cabin people are referring to. I've driven this from Los Angeles to San Diego already and have had no complaints so far. Looking forward to many more road trips.
