Engine and Powertrain
The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek is built around the strength of Subaru's Global Platform, providing an unparalleled blend of agility and all-road capability, thanks to the Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system. This foundation ensures a low centre of gravity and high ground clearance, coupled with a long-travel suspension system designed for diverse terrains. At the heart of the Crosstrek are two options of SUBARU BOXER engines. The base models, the Convenience and Touring trims, are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, while the more advanced Onyx, Limited, and Wilderness trims boast a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Both engines feature Dual Active Valve Control, direct injection, and meet PZEV standards, striking a balance between efficiency, reduced emissions, and engaging performance.
The Crosstrek’s Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is a key component of its powertrain, offering a blend of responsive driveability, quiet operation, and fuel efficiency. It is paired with Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD, featuring a multi-plate transfer clutch that optimizes torque distribution and enhances handling, particularly under acceleration or in low-traction conditions. The Crosstrek Wilderness model is equipped with a CVT oil cooler, boosting its towing capacity and adventure potential. Additionally, the Convenience and Touring trims come with standard X-MODE, aiding navigation in challenging driving conditions, while the Onyx, Limited, and Wilderness trims include a dual-function X-MODE for even greater control over varied terrains.
