Are there multiple trim levels?
Yes! The compact crossover comes in six trim levels: 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Premium, and 2.0XT Touring.
Is it a safe car to drive?
Absolutely! The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a Top Safety Pick+ designee after it earned the highest score of “Good” in all five crash tests, a “Superior” rating in crash avoidance and mitigation technology, and an “Acceptable” in Headlight ratings. The NHTSA gave it a perfect Five-Star Overall Rating as well as perfect Five-Star ratings in side crash and rollover crash tests.
What comes under the hood?
There are two engines available which help distinguish trim levels. The 2.5i models feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5i and 2.5i Premium trims come paired to a six-speed manual transmission, while a CVT is optional on those trims and standard on higher trims. Both 2.0XT models get a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine is only paired to the CVT.
What are some notable available features?
While not all features are available on all trim levels, there are a number of engaging and enjoyable tech features available such as Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a rearview camera, a touchscreen interface with the Subaru brand’s Starlink technology interface, and smartphone app integration, which are each available on the even the base trim!
