2020 Subaru Crosstrek Exterior and Dimensions

Subaru Crosstrek Exterior Design Rating

2020 Crosstrek Exterior

Many crossovers carry a very generic aesthetic but Subaru did a great job of making the Crosstrek look attractive while keeping the sleek and sophisticated urban visual along with the rugged outdoorsy demeanor. It's defined by its sleek hood, black wheel arch cladding, raised roof rails, and rear-mounted roof spoiler. The base and Premium Crosstrek features multi-reflector halogen headlights with integrated daytime running lights, and rides atop 17-inch alloy wheels. Halogen foglights are fitted to the Premium model but only the Limited features an all-LED lighting complement, including steering responsive LED headlights. 18-inch alloy wheels better befit the wheel arches of the top-spec trim.

At a length of 175.8 inches, height of 63.6 inches, and width of 71 inches, the Subaru Crosstrek is a little larger than the average compact hatchback - because it is basically a hatch with beefed-up arches and lifted suspension. For an idea, the Honda HR-V spans only 170.4 inches in length, 63.2 inches in height, and 69.8 inches in width. The Crosstreks wheelbase of 104.9 inches is even longer than the HR-V's 102.8 inches. All this extra size also means the Crosstrek is a little on the heavier side with curb weights ranging from 3,117 pounds with the base model to 3,263 lbs with the top-spec model and the CVT gearbox. Beneficial to the Crosstrek's off-road appeal is its 8.7-inch running ground clearance.
