The exterior design of the new Subaru Crosstrek has all the glamor of a pair of muddy rubber boots, but this is entirely intentional. The lower-body protective cladding is a staple of the Crosstrek, including on the wheel arches, but the look has been mildly modernized. Compared with its predecessor, the 2024 Crosstrek has a larger hexagonal grille and slimmer steering-responsive LED headlights in front. The base model rides on 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-season tires, but upper trims have 18-inch wheels in varying finishes. More premium trim levels like the Limited boast body-color mirrors with integrated turn signals. The rear aspect isn't particularly pretty and the taillights appear overstyled, but it all somehow comes together to deliver an adventure-ready crossover with an honest charm to it. If desired, customers can spring for an optional power moonroof.
While US specifications were not published, the dimensions of the Subaru Crosstrek were shared for other markets, and we don't see the local version being any different. The crossover has a length of 176.9 inches, almost half a inch longer than the 2023 version. Its width is 70.8 inches, the height is 62.9 inches, and the wheelbase works out to 105.1 inches.
The curb weight of the local models is unknown, but in other markets, the entry-level Crosstrek starts at 3,205 pounds. If the Crosstrek Hybrid makes a return for this generation, we expect it to be slightly heavier.

The configurator for the 2024 SUV hadn't gone live at the time of writing, but we do know of some Subaru Crosstrek colors that will be available. One of these shades is Alpine Green, with the army-like hue suiting the car's rugged spirit. We drove a model in a dark shade of blue, but the vehicle should also be available in white, grey, and red like the outgoing model.
The Crosstrek's ground clearance works out to 8.7 inches, which is better than many other rivals.
Most Subaru Crosstrek trims can be equipped with an optional power moonroof.
While the base trim has 17-inch alloy wheels, upper trims have larger 18-inch alloys.
