Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid to go on sale next month

The all-new 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid will start arriving in showrooms in late November with a base MSRP of $29,995 and a city rating of 6.9L/100km.

Based on the already popular XV Crosstrek crossover, this hybrid variant benefits from a re-engineered chassis and suspension. It uses the same 148 horsepower, 2.0L, 4-cylinder BOXER engine as the rest of the lineup, but integrates a specific Lineartronic CVT that attaches to a 13.5 horsepower electric motor within its symmetrical full-time all-wheel drive system to create the new Subaru Hybrid Drive system.

The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers exclusive features such as silver raised-profile roof rails, lightweight, aerodynamic aluminum alloy wheels, and keyless access with push-button start.
