So Far, A Great Car
By salacious on


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


The Crosstrek is no Ferrari, but it IS very quick off the mark (i.e., zero to 30-40mph).
That said, it also loses its *rate* of acceleration in the mid-speed range prior to reaching 60-70 mph. If you need to keep up a decent (but not great) rate of acceleration, you will need to push down quite a bit further on the gas pedal.

Nonetheless, acceleration is easily adequate to merge into freeway traffic.
Ignore the reviewers who say otherwise.

For the vast majority of gas-mileage-conscious customers looking for a smallish SUV-style of vehicle with a great AWD system, this car is very hard to beat.
If you don’t care about gas mileage or AWD or want a boat-like SUV, look elsewhere.
