Bringing up the rear is the XV Crosstrek Hybrid that Subaru claims will become the most fuel-efficient AWD crossover in the US. It features a 2.0-liter boxer engine, rated at 148 hp and 145 lb-ft of toque, mated to a continuously variable transmission with an integrated electric motor producing 13 hp and 48 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a start/stop system, the hybrid returns 28/34 mpg city/highway even though it adds 300 pounds more weight. Distinguishing the Hybrid from the gasoline model is some Hybrid badges, a new Plasma Green
Pearl body color, an active shutter grille and unique alloys.
