The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek's primary draw is its jack-of-all-trades nature.

Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability
Comfortable ride quality

CONS
Slow acceleration on the highway
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rival cars
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to typical crossovers
