Another fun & super opinionated car review – this time it's the (drum roll please)……….
2018 Subaru Crosstrek
But first, my #ForConsideration Disclaimer – All info provided in the review is based on a one-week test drive.
The vehicle was provided in consideration for my overly-opinionated opinion.
This zippy little number is considered a Subcompact SUV class and is a 4-cylinder / 152 horsepower
– $2,395 – Option Package with Moonroof, EyeSight Driver Assist System, Blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert & lane change assist, steering responsive fog lights
– $1,000 – Lineartronic Continuously Variable (aka: continuously variable transmission
Total MSRP: $26,905
Average gas mileage: 29 MPG
Color: Sunshine Orange (or Bronco Orange in these parts)
0-60 – 9.2 seconds
Interior – combo of hard & soft materials. Nothing super lush but not too cheap. I loved the stand out color stitching -gave it some pop
The roomy back seat has enough space to accommodate even tall travelers
Sizable cargo hold makes it feel like a compact SUV. – 20.8 cubic feet
The rear seats fold almost completely flat, opening up 55.3 cubic feet of space.
Ground Clearance – 8.7 inches
Standard all-wheel drive is great for light off-roading,
Overall a very reliable SUV – perfect for Colorado with the constant weather & elevation changes.Plus I loved the Sunshine Orange color – a perfect match for Colorado sunsets and the Broncos
