The 2018 Crosstrek brings a full redesign and the second generation of the compact crossover to the market, with many improvements throughout the vehicle. The Crosstrek receives a new platform and new suspension design, providing a more stable ride while also making a smoother more comfortable ride. All-wheel drive is now standard on all Crosstreks and features Torque Vectoring, which provides improved handling on and off road. For 2018 the Crosstrek now has a 6-speed manual transmission designed for more acceleration and better highway efficiency. The engine in the 2018 gets a bump in power at 152 horsepower and a new 7-speed CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is offered. A newly designed rear hatch provides for more cargo space and a wider hatch opening. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now come standard in every Crosstrek.
