Lexus introduced the Black Line Special Edition package for the F Sport models. It comes with black exterior accents, black 20-inch wheels, blue stitching for the leather interior, and either an Ultra White or Grecian Water (medium blue) paint job. More notably, ordering the Black Line Special Edition package also adds a two-piece set of Zero Halliburton luggage. Elsewhere, the RX receives a new interior color—Glazed Caramel—which replaces Noble Brown.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrains,
standard driver-assistance features,
silky-smooth ride quality.

Cons
Lazy driving demeanor,
relaxed acceleration,
fussy infotainment touchpad.

Cons

Mediocre cargo space
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rivals

By:

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek flexes a more potent available powertrain but still prioritizes safety and capability.

Pros
Excellent CVT
Off-road capable, rugged looks
Standard AWD
New Sport trim
Standard safety tech

Cons
Cramped USB ports
Limited-release hybrid
Manual transmission omits more than it adds
Limited trim not a value

Along with a light visual refresh that includes new front bumper and grille designs, the 2021 Crosstrek gains a Sport model and a more powerful engine option. The new 2.5-liter flat-four has been lifted from the mid-size Legacy sedan and Outback station wagon and plopped under the hood of Sport and Limited models of the Crosstrek; the languid 2.0-liter engine is still in the mix, but relegated to the base and Premium models only. The new Sport trim comes with several unique features that won't be offered on other Crosstreks, including Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud settings for the standard all-wheel-drive system.
