All-new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek 

By Keith Turner

We trekked down and up California, from Sacramento to Venice and back, to test out the all-new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek in real-life active family situations, like taking our bikes to the beach.

We discovered that the Crosstrek, which is built on Subaru’s all-new global platform, offers plenty of room for passengers and cargo with seats for five that fold flat, yet rides quick and smooth like a sedan.

Subaru’s famous all-wheel drive and vehicle stability control make this small SUV a champ in sand or snow and the electric power-assist steering keeps the wheels on track in tight turns.

Negotiating the freeways of Southern California was made easier with the help of the EyeSight Driver Assist technology that keeps the Crosstrek at a safe (adjustable) distance behind the vehicle in front of you. The lane-keeping assist nudges the Crosstrek back into its lane, if it senses you drifting into a neighboring lane.

Combined, these additional safety technologies provided us with the feeling we were in a near self-driving experience.

Fuel mileage is a reasonable 26 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway, and the base MSRP of $26,295 makes this new Subaru a bargain to own.
