If you fancy a little bit of adventure but don't have a lot of space in your garage, the Subaru Crosstrek might be the ideal vehicle. With a healthy 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Crosstrek can take you places most small SUVs, including the Honda Fit and the Kia Soul, cannot. It also delivers a fairly comfortable ride and comes with quite a few standard safety features.
For 2021, Subaru added a larger optional engine to the Crosstrek. That went a long way toward taking care of our biggest complaint that the little Subaru is too slow. For 2022, it's unlikely that Subaru will change anything significant on the Crosstrek largely because there could be an all-new generation on the way in 2023.
