Which 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Is Right For Me?


The Subaru Crosstrek 2022 is located in a special place. The introduction of the brand’s sub-crossover offers all-wheel drive as standard and includes a plug-in hybrid model at the top of the line. It rides high, and provides enough cutoff for rough roads and inclement weather. But which one is right for you?

Think of the Subaru Crosstrek as a Mercedes-Benz All-Terrain or Audi Allroad for those on a budget. For 2022, the Subaru Crosstrek is largely a carryover from the previous year’s model, while maintaining its value and high safety ratings. Above the base Crosstrek model, you can choose from Crosstrek Premium, Crosstrek Sport, Crosstrek Limited and Crosstrek Hybrid.

The exterior is mostly unchanged, with the winged grille logo dominating the front. The tough black body livery highlights and protects the Crosstrek when the urge to go off-road arises.

Crosstrek trims and equipment

The 2022 Subaru Crossstroke starts with a base Subaru Crossstroke AWD for $22,445. It includes a 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer four-cylinder engine. A manual transmission is standard, with a Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) system available as an alternative. Of course, Subaru’s symmetric all-wheel drive system is standard on all models of the model lineup. Cloth fabric covers the seats and the audio comes through the basic Subaru Starlink multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

We think most buyers would do better to switch to the Crosstrek Sport ($26,795). Here they’ll find a larger, more powerful 2.5-liter engine mated to a standard Lineartronic CVT transmission with adaptive control, slope assist and 8-speed manual mode with paddle shifters.

For those looking for more fuel economy, there’s the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid ($35,645). Powered by a 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer engine producing 137 hp and 134 lb-ft of torque, it is mated to an AC synchronous electric motor that adds 118 hp and 149 lb-ft of torque, as needed. This combo generates 148 horsepower combined. The electrical system can drive the Crosstrek 17 miles exclusively on electric power and has an EPA rating of 90 mpg.

All Subaru Crossstroke AWD models have a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds and come in at a cost of $1,125.
