I love Subaru, and I love the planet, so a Subaru Hybrid is my dream car. I test drove this one and am hoping to find a way to buy it.
A joy to drive
We were lucky to find a great deal in a 2014 Crosstrek Hybrid. Cars.com wouldn't let me pick 2014 as an option so I chose 2016. When you're in the Crosstrek Hybrid you really know you're driving a car! Really fun car to drive. The Crosstrek Hybrid has fantastic acceleration, super light and natural handling, and very comfortable seats material wise and posture wise. Nice and quiet like you'd expect from a hybrid. Great panoramic view from the windshield and awesome visibility in the side mirrors really make you feel in control. If I had one critical thing to say it would be that if you're a tallish person like myself you might feel your head brushing the top of the cab sometimes. Other than that it's lovely. All the extra features work great in the touring model from the backup cam to the multimode sound system, super easy to pair your phone. Looking forward to years of driving with the family. Love this car!
My first Subaru and I'm lovin' it!
I've driven a Jeep Grand Cherokee for 16 years and needed to get something new. When I saw the Crosstrek in the SUV category in Consumer Reports I was intrigued. It feels like a car and a SUV in one. It has great ground clearance and I can pump up my seat to sit higher, yet it is small like a car and can make sharp turns. I love the way it handles and the ability to watch the MPG while driving. I tend to drive conservatively and have never gotten below 30 MPG and often get 40-42 which is amazing to me! The only negative is that the rear view mirror is too low. I'm 5'9". I'll have to get the mirror moved up as it blocks my view. Also, the doors are a little wimpy feeling to me having driven a Jeep for so many years. Overall, I love my Crosstrek Hybrid!
