Subaru Crosstrek review

This is the Subaru Crosstrek, essentially a heavily revised version of the Subaru XV, only it now adopts the nameplate already used in other markets. It’s the firm’s smallest SUV offering, sitting behind the Forester and Outback.

Whatever the name, it’s the third generation in the family tree. And like its predecessors – and its bigger siblings – it favours rugged looks and a go anywhere attitude over stand out style. Note the black plastic body cladding, the raised ride height, the standard fit roof rails, that sort of thing.
