The manual transmission also carries on into 2020.
The Subaru Crosstrek shines by giving a car-like driving experience in something that looks like its ready to get down and dirty off the beaten track. It comes with all-wheel-drive as standard and, although it's no serious off-roader, it's a smart choice for those looking for safety features and all-weather performance. Now the Crosstrek is moving into the 2020 model year, Subaru has released its new pricing, with increases right across the board.
The base model rises in price by $250 and the hybrid inches its way up by an extra $150 before a slight increase in delivery charges. That puts the base model at $23,155 including delivery and a manual transmission. To lose a peddle and opt for the CVT, the price goes up to $24,505 and, doing the math, that's $635 more than the base model with a CVT last year. Offsetting that is the news that Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite is now standard on all models with a CVT transmission as well as the hybrid model. While EyeSight is a good bundle, customers will still need to check option packages for blind-spot monitoring.
Going up the Crosstrek range, Premium trim with the manual transmission now costs $24,205 including delivery, while the CVT will cost an extra $1,345 at $25,555. At the top of the trims, the Crosstrek Limited starts at $28,405 while the Crosstrek Hybrid will get you better gas mileage. Recouping the initial outlay of $36,155 might take a while, however.
Not a lot is changing in the way of features for the 2020 Crosstrek, but Rear Seat Reminder will be available across the line and automatic door locks and climate control become standard across the board and auto stop/start technology is included with CVT equipped models. The 2020 model should be arriving at local dealers before Christmas.
