2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I've had my XV Crosstrek hybrid for two months now and have been extremely happy with it. I've been getting 35 mpg around town and about 38mpg hwy, which is double than my 2003 Baja. Comfortable ride, minimal road noise, a lot of get up and go from a stand still, & the CVT transmission has been smooth. I've had several people (including a police officer pull up to me) to ask me about the car-
"I didn't know Subaru made a hydrid."

If you're looking for Prius like mileage, than buy a Prius; Although you won't have the awesome AWD of a Subaru, headroom, legroom, cargo carrying ability, nor will your Prius be able to get out of its own way in a sticky traffic situation.

Best Features

Pros: Great mileage for AWD Tight handling Smooth ride Straightforward interior and controls Quiet interior with decent materials Good front and back headroom & legroom Runs in all electric mode up to 25 mph Good low end torque

Worst Features

Audio system could be better No interior hatch release Not made with a manual transmission
