The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system in the 2023 Crosstrek is designed to optimize traction in rain, snow, on bad roads, or even when there’s no road at all. It constantly evaluates acceleration, braking, and cornering in real time to continuously deliver power to all four wheels. If a wheel slips, power is instantaneously transferred to the wheels that have the most grip.
With its exceptionally balanced layout, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive delivers a solid connection to the road and an engaged, responsive drive. The entire system lies along the centerline of the vehicle, equalizing weight distribution between the two sides to help provide optimal performance and control.
At up to 34 MPG**, the 2023 Crosstrek delivers competitive fuel efficiency and over 500 miles of driving range2. With the proven engineering and decades of adventure behind Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive – which has demonstrated its durability and low maintenance over four decades of owner-tested Subaru vehicles – you can be confident your Crosstrek will be with you for all the miles ahead.
The 2023 Crosstrek features an available 2.5-liter direct-injection SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers 182 horsepower and 176 lb.-ft. of torque – extra power that makes all your trips more exciting and responsive. In fact, the 2023 Crosstrek offers more available horsepower than the Honda HR-V, Toyota Corolla Cross, or Jeep Compass3. Drawing on over 50 years of Subaru engineering experience, every SUBARU BOXER engine is designed with a unique horizontal layout that offers natural balance and a low center of gravity while delivering an efficient transfer of power.

The Harman Kardon premium audio system captures detail-rich acoustics through enhanced sound control and superior high sound output. At the heart of the system lies a high-performance eight-channel, class-D amplifier pumping out 432 equivalent watts of power. The amplifier works to efficiently distribute clean audio signals to the vehicle’s eight-speaker sound system. Harman’s Clari-Fi® Technology restores and corrects audio fidelity, resulting in musical reproduction that sounds clearer, crisper, and more dynamic.

The 2023 Crosstrek features standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which acts like an extra set of eyes on the road and if need be, an extra foot on the brake when you drive. EyeSight includes a number of advanced active safety systems to protect you and your family on every drive.
Automatic Pre-Collision Braking helps you avoid or reduce frontal impacts by alerting you and applying full braking force in emergency situations. Pre-Collision Throttle Management can reduce the power from the engine to help minimize possible impact force and frontal impact damage.
Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering provides extra safety and convenience on every drive. Just choose the distance you want to keep from the car in front of you and it can take some of the stress out of driving by helping with steering, braking, and throttle control — both in daily traffic and on long road trips.
