Monday, November 28th 2016. | Subaru

To make a new car stands out, it is important to provide a whole new design. This is what we expect to see in 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. The car is quite promising to have better engine and interior design to make it far away from the predecessor. It will be superior and more luxurious to battle with other compact crossover SUV without losing its tough and rugged look. Subaru has been releasing the concept cars just like the new Impreza. We expect to see its introduction at 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Those options are paired with six-speed transmission and the all-wheel drive will get air suspension that will keep it cool automatically.
