Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

PROS
Modern design,
lively engines,
plenty of kit

CONS
Interior quality,
noisy diesel,
light steering

By:

The Suzuki Vitara is a rugged-looking family SUV that drives well and has plenty of storage space, but it’s let down by a cheap-feeling interior

Pros
Surprisingly fun to drive
Decent rear passenger space
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap interior materials
Noisy at speed
Top-spec models too expensive

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Engine torque
Quiet and refined at speed
Great spec and value

Cons
No spare wheel

By: 
drive.co.uk

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

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.
