Worth the upgrade from a 2023 Crosstrek Limited
I put 37000 miles on my first (2023) Crosstrek Limited in one year so decided to trade up to the 2024 Crosstrek Wilderness. What a difference this car is! The Wilderness version is a totally different car inside and out, regardless of how many talking heads claim there are minor differences. I got stuck in shallow mud and snow in the Limited and have tested the Wilderness in mud, sand and gravel without any issues. The ride is a bit more stiff, but in a good way. I do think the car is slightly overpriced, but hey - INFLATION.
I already used it for 4 months. It's a small SUV. The driving experience was quite good. The CVT works perfect. The room size is limited for home use, but it's enough for daily commute. The engine is not that powerful as it is a 2.5L one. The Adaptive Cruise Control is a good feature for travelling drive.
Crosstrek a Great choice
I am extremely satisfied with this vehicle. It fits my needs perfectly. Only one very minor criticism is that the front seats could be more comfortable. I highly recommend this vehicle.
Wilderness for the Win!
I have just passed 1000 miles on my Crosstrek Wilderness and this is an excellent vehicle! I traded in a 23 Legacy Premium and the Crosstrek has a better ride quality and surprisingly, is less prone to crosswinds than the Legacy was. The interior of the Crosstrek is a very comfortable place to be. The cherry on top is that it has consistently averaged 31 MPG (50 mile commute total with a mix of highway and city). Truly an exceptional vehicle so far!
New Blue Subaru
I have had the car a little over a month. I have the Crosstrek with the power seat package for lumbar support. Could have done without the moonroof. Other than that the car is comfortable though the seats are quite firm but a definite improvement over previous models. I would highly recommend the car. Fun to drive easy to handle and safe. I love the Yokohama tires!
Get this car
The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek is a lovely car for the cost. I am happy with the overall performance, design, and performance of the vehicle. I feel safe and secure while driving and it is a pleasure to be part of the Subaru family.
One and Done
This is my first Subaru and I know a lot of people love them. I thought I would love it, but I was wrong. If you live near the woods or just run around town then it is probably an outstanding choice, but if you ever need to take a road trip or need power to get into traffic then probably not the best choice. The engine has no power even if you use the [S] mode and the seats are super uncomfortable for anything more than a few hours on the road. Then there is the road noise, which was a shock. If all you do is a quick test drive near the dealership then the first time you hit the highway might surprise you. I have owned Jeeps with less road noise :).... While I like the design and gas mileage, I am a one and done owner. There are too many other options out there and in this price range. But while not for me, it might be great for you.
Can't go wrong
Fabulous vehicle for the price. Had a 2019 Ford Edge Titanium, 12K more than the Crosstrek and the Crosstrek is a better car in every way. Handles great, comfortable, quiet and rides great. 11+" screen is designed well and works smoothly and is intuitive. One of the best vehicle purchases made.
Love the car but not impressed with the AC. doesn't seem to get really cold no matter how I set it. Holds a lot of stuff for camping.
The Well Rounded 2024 Crosstrek
Coming from a 2016 Crosstrek, the 2024 model is a very pleasant upgrade. The overall design is very sleek compared to the previous generations, making it look more sporty and less bulky. My favorite parts of the interior are the seats, as they are more comfortable but keep you from sliding all over the place when turning, and the 11 inch infotainment screen, as it’s great quality and not as obnoxious as one would assume. My favorite parts of the exterior are the headlights and taillights, as they give the car a sharper look and they now come standard with LED. The overall proportions compared to the previous generations are similar, but I noticed more interior room which is great for those a little over 6’ 0”. Every model comes standard with an improved EyeSight driver assistance system and turning adaptive LED headlights, which is a major bonus, as those were previously limited to higher trim models. The only feature that I don’t particularly care for that comes standard is the automatic start stop which can be turned off each time you start the car, but cannot be permanently turned off, which is a bummer. 2024 Crosstreks come standard with Subaru’s symmetrical AWD, 2.0 L engine, automatic transmission, and 8.7 inch ground clearance. It’s a well rounded car in terms of style, functionality, and comfort. I recommend getting a Premium model for average drivers over the Base model, as it’s the best value for your money and allows the optional package, but of course there’s the Sport and Limited models if you’re looking for something a little faster or luxurious and of course a Wilderness model for any outdoorsy drivers.
