Fun and stylish with flaws
By kydriver4 on


2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Fun to drive XV Crosstrek with smooth shifting manual.
Needs 6th gear badly!
Revs are way too high above about 65 mph.
Needs about 40 to 50 hp, then it would be even more fun.
But the looks alone sold me.

Best Features

The looks! Great looking wheels too. Plenty of legroom for my 6 foot 2 frame.

Worst Features

More hp and a 6th gear. It's a "Premium" without premium interior amenities such as an unsophisticated stereo that is way behind the times. What is with the no Sirius radio?
