The 2018 Crosstrek brings a full redesign and the second generation of the compact crossover to the market, with many improvements throughout the vehicle.

The engine in the 2018 gets a bump in power at 152 horsepower and a new 7-speed CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is offered. A newly designed rear hatch provides for more cargo space and a wider hatch opening. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now come standard in every Crosstrek.
The 2018 Crosstrek is available in three trim levels; 2.0i, 2.0i Premium and 2.0i Limited. All Crosstreks are equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder boxer engine making 152 horsepower. This engine is mated to either a new 6-speed manual transmission or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT). The CVT transmission comes standard in the 2.0i Limited trim.
