Introducing the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek
The Subaru XV Crosstrek boasts the type of precision performance that has been over 50 years in the making. It is the culmination of everything that Subaru has learned since building its very first vehicle. The Subaru XV Crosstrek combines all the best of Subaru's core technologies, including Vehicle Dynamics Control, a horizontally-opposed Boxer engine and Symmetrical All-wheel Drive. Then they added an impressive 220mm ground clearance to create a vehicle with serious SUV ability.
Subaru XV Crosstrek's impressive and lively acceleration is delivered from a combination of Subaru's new third generation Boxer engine and the newly developed compact and light weight Lineartronic™ CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). This CVT has been optimized to couple seamlessly with the new Boxer engine and chassis to deliver highly responsive acceleration, improved drive-ability and higher fuel efficiency. The six-speed manual Subaru XV transmission also delivers excellent fuel efficiency and smooth shift quality.
