The new 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek is out and so is our review about the car. The new vehicle is essentially a small utility vehicle. The vehicle was actually based on the version of the Impreza hatchback vehicle and not just based on the design but certain performances as well. The car offers increased ground clearance and upgraded suspension, which is the basis of the design of the vehicle.
Also bear in mind that the car has an updated look which give it a bit of a rough exterior. The disposition of the vehicle may be rough but its performance certainly isn’t, add to that an integrated roof rack and flared fenders and you get a pretty decent car design for newest Subaru XV.
Just take a glance at the pictures that are provided about the new 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek before continuing on to read the review so you get a better idea about what the car is all about.
2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek exterior
Although the Impreza hatchback is the exterior basis of the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek, it has a much more rugged exterior design than the mentioned counterpart. First and foremost, the stance is different and although there are many things which make these to designs similar, there are many of which make them two distinguishable cars.
The vehicle will perhaps make some additional noise while driving opposed to the counterpart but the handling is set perfectly and the design enables it to do it. Also consider the fact that the 8.7 inches raised from the ground. Combine that with the departure angels, structural reinforcements and a large gas tank and you get a pretty impressive car.
This might well be one of the best made crossover vehicles as it provides the driver with great specs characteristics, versatility and the ability to drive in different terrains as well. Although the car is not particularly useful or rather aimed for a given purpose, it can manage to perform well in any type of a situation it is placed in.
The interior of the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek is not that interesting as we might think or as its other features are. The initial approach is that the car has decent space and comfort. There aren’t any flashy additions inside a standard offering is just enough for this type of a vehicle. The comfort level is actually pretty decent and perhaps even more than we might have initially expected. On the other hand, the spacing is used in quite a useful way here as the vehicle packs some additional cargo spacing available. There is more than enough space at the back to pack various type of equipment when going on a camping trip or actually and kind of a venture you might decide to go on.
Engine of 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek
The basic trim of the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek comes with a standard 2.0-liter flat-four engine of 148-horsepower. It comes with the combination of either a five-speed manual transmission system or a Subaru’s Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. There is also the new hybrid engine option which includes the usage of a small 10-kilowatt electronic engine which can add an additional 13.4 horsepower to the total mix. It has been mainly added to help out the engine and it is not meant to be used alone, but in fact the electronic motor can drive the car well off on its own with ease.
