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.

Infiniti updates the 2021 QX50 lineup with some minor alterations. Every model now comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot, laminated front side glass, and side-mounted airbags in the rear seat. Mineral Black joins the list of optional paint colors, too. Along with heated front seats, the Luxe model now comes standard with more driver assists, as well as a blackout package.

Pros
One of the better-looking crossovers,
quiet and refined manners,
pretty and roomy interior.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds during acceleration,
underwhelming fuel economy,
annoying infotainment details.

Pros
