Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

New 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine provides more power.More standard driver assist features on automatic-equipped Crosstreks.Part of the second Crosstrek generation introduced for 2018.

Pros
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability
Spacious seating for a hatchback of its size
Comfortable ride quality
Easy to see out of

Cons
Slow acceleration on the highway with base engine
Mediocre cargo space
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rivals

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.

PROS
Seriously sorted chassis
Determined three-cylinder engine
Excellent interior technology

CONS
Cramped rear seats
Getting expensive for a small SUV
We don't get the ST

By: 
carexpert.com.au

PROS
Fast, terrific dynamics, extremely well-engineered.

CONS
Ride can be a little uncompromising, sub-optimal fuel consumption if you use the performance.

Not only is the Ford Puma ST one of the most exciting SUVs we’ve ever driven, it’s also immensely practical, comes packed with equipment and undercuts all of its main rivals on price. In other words, the Puma ST is a classic performance car from Ford: fast, fun and fantastic value, making it our favourite Sports SUV.

PROS
Immensely enjoyable to drive
Surprisingly big boot
Great driving position

CONS
Occasionally bouncy low-speed ride
Infotainment could be slicker
A VW T-Roc is bigger in the back
