2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Lots of "compact" SUVs out there, and almost all of them are boring and bland.
While no drag racer, this car is fun to drive, has exciting styling, and is just the right size.
Also, it has a unique look and size that isn't quite an SUV, more like a sports wagon/SUV cross.

You get a lot for the money - heated leather seats, Navigation, moonroof, backup camera - compared to other cars.
Plus, the raised clearance, cool wheels, and great gas mileage (at at 27 MPG mostly on short trips and city driving).
The drive feels very secure, and the shift paddles are fun to use.
The engine does rev high and won't get you 0 - 60 in a record time, but the car feels punchy, spry, and turns on a dime.

Best Features

The exterior styling, the simplicity of the interior, the gas mileage, the unique wheels, the ground clearance, the AWD system, the backup camera, the spacious interior, blue tooth connectivity.

Worst Features

Stock radio is just mediocre. I recommend to upgrade the speakers to the Kickers if that's important to you.
