    Subaru Crosstrek

    The Crosstrek is basically an Impreza hatchback with a higher ride height, added body cladding, and large wheels that are intended to give it a more rugged look. The regular Crosstrek's 148-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine helps it deliver a frugal 26 mpg overall, which makes it among the most fuel-efficient SUVs in the class. But this compact vehicle doesn't provide as much cargo room as most small SUVs.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

    "The acceleration and handling is much better than I thought it would be."

    Thomas R., CA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Handles well at all times, and fine in snow and rain. Brakes, corners, accelerates as required and then some."

    Richard B., CT (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "We have the touring hybrid, it has excellent acceleration and punch and handles very well in traffic. The extra mileage from the hybrid is not worth the cost (way long payback period if not driving 25k per year) but it's worth it for the performance."

    William G., PA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Very peppy"

    Ken C., MT (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Handling is excellent - very nimble and responsive"

    Tim W., TN (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    Jason D., NY (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "This car has a lot of pep and accelerates very fast. It also brakes very fast, but this is because I was driving a 2004 outback with 238000 miles on it before I bought me crosstrek.. So ANY car would have been an improvement on speed of accelration and braking!"

    "The hybrid system is very responsive."

    Benjamin D., WA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "This car is incredibly reliable and handles well although it is a little stiff to my liking. Not enough to dislike it a lot, however, and will probably continue to drive my Crosstrek for many years to come."

    "Zippy little pony! Reliable CVT with a smooth transition and superb boost when it's needed. In addition, user-optional paddle-operated "manual" shifting gives an additional element of control over the vehicle."

    Michelle M., TX (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Execellent traction, very good handling in snow, easy to control handling. But lacks power for passing. Needs a god 20 to 30 hp more."

    Amyot B., QC (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Very happy with acceleration - more than enough to get quickly up to speed on onramps & in traffic; nimble handling for avoiding potholes, idiots, etc."

    Bernard L., WI (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Acceleration is good especially when starting up at green lights and merging onto high speed highways. The handling is solid even on pot-hole ridden city streets and the all wheel drive is very effective in ice and snow. Turning radius is also very good."

    Anonymous, MA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "The Crosstrek handles well for a raised vehicle, but it has a shortcoming--power. Most reviewers describe the acceleration as anemic or something to that effect. My term would be "leisurely." It will get you onto the freeway, but you have to pick your hole in the traffic very carefully. In situations where applying more power is the safest option, go for plan B."

    Young D., VA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "It is sporty, nimble and powerful enough around town."

    James T., CO (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "Picked Subaru because I enjoy a manual transmission and so few new cars have this available! My only gripe: you can't really get upgraded trim levels with the manual. I would have loved leather/sunroof but this was not an option. Car makers: manual drivers still exist! Folks aren't buying them because they want upgraded features and you are forcing them to choose."

The engine noise does take some getting used too as it is noisy under heavy acceleration as getting out in traffic or passing.

    "I find the comfort and ergonomics of the seats perfect for me. I am a 5'5", 165 lb, 69 yr old women with arthritis and back trouble, and find that I am comfortable driving on long trips and can get in and out with ease due to the high clearance of vehicle and the ergonomic seats. Ride is smooth and cabin noise is low considering the small size of the car. Do to high clearance of the vehicle, loading and unloading the back cargo are is easy. Only suggestion to Subaru, is that the lower lip of cargo area at hatchback be made even with the cargo area floor, such as the 2003 Toyota Matrix was. Slipping cargo in and out of a flat cargo area is much easier that way especially for those with back and strength issues."

    Lynda S., CA (2016 Subaru Crosstrek)

    "It is a compact, well-designed car that was cheaper than a standard sized SUV, but more expensive that a comparable sedan. For being such a small car, the mileage is disappointing. I live in a flood-prone area and am glad that I have a high-riding car."
