Subaru Updates XV Crosstrek for 2015

Xv-crosstrek

Subaru continues to roll out its camera- and radar-based safety system; the XV Crosstrek is next in line to get the automaker's EyeSight safety system for 2015. The driver-assistance package integrates adaptive cruise control, precollision braking and lane departure warning. Subaru also updated the wagon's multimedia system this year, replacing the small, outdated touch-screen unit with a choice of two larger, freshly designed systems.

A new 6.2-inch touch-screen multimedia system and backup camera join the cabin in 2.0i, 2.0i Premium and XV Crosstrek Hybrid models. It integrates Subaru's Starlink smartphone system with Aha, Pandora and iHeart Radio apps.

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid Video

Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says Subaru's first hybrid, the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid, offers rugged exterior styling and an effectively utilitarian interior to match. But should anyone pony up an extra $4,000 for an unimpressive fuel economy boost over the gas-only version? Watch the video.

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid: Car Seat Check

Subaru-xv-hybrid

Subaru's new XV Crosstrek wagon was introduced for the 2013 model year and the brand's first hybrid followed for 2014. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid retains the regular version's cargo and passenger dimensions, so there was enough room for two child-safety seats in this five-passenger wagon; accessible Latch anchors also make it family-friendly.

Subaru-crosstrek-hy

The concept of a hybrid Subaru is a great one. Many Subaru owners love the outdoors and owning a greener car might appeal to these car shoppers. But the reality of Subaru's first hybrid is a tale of pretty unimpressive mileage.

The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid spent some time and hundreds of miles in the Cars.com test fleet recently and delivered less than stunning results.
