“The new styling is iterative. Lines are a little cleaner, the LED ru
ing lights look a little fancier, and the interior is a lot nicer, but it’s still definitely a Subaru Crosstrek. You don’t buy this car for its looks. Photo: Subaru
Do you like camping, skiing, biking, and [fill in any other outdoor activity here]? Do you want a car thatu2019s affordable and economical, but still has room for all your stuff and your dogs? Do you need a car that can handle a rough dirt road and winter weather? Do you need a car thatu2019s as good squeezing into a tight parking spot as it is on the open road? You need Subaruu2019s newly updated, already-excellent Crosstrek.

The outgoing Crosstrek was already one of the safest cars on the road, but the new platform is even safer. Subaru claims the caru2019s ability to absorb energy in a crash is up 40 percent over its predecessoru2014and thatu2019s if you actually run into something. Helping you avoid doing that is a center of gravity thatu2019s dropped 0.2 inches (a low center of gravity is a Subaru hallmark, courtesy of its unique opposed-cylinder engines), which should provide a small handling advantage. Subaruu2019s EyeSight driver aid technology will also be optional: it brings automated pre-collision braking to the car.
