Fresh off a 2017 redesign, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is here and ready to make an impression. Die-hard fans will love the upgrades made to the interior and mechanical design, and we think that the 2018 Crosstrek will earn many more followers. At Downtown Subaru of Oakland we are well-stocked with the new Crosstrek and we are excited to provide our customers with such an exciting crossover. If you are interested, read on for details on what's new in the 2018 model.

Mechanical updates include the Subaru BOXER engine that cranks out 154 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque which is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or Subaru's Lineartronic CVT. These powerful systems give the Crosstrek a responsive, exciting drive so you can cruise around the Bay Area. The 2018 model's ride is markedly better with tighter turns, the Active Torque Vectoring system, and 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

The interior has received a fashionable upgrade with cosmetic improvements to the seating on even the base trim level. Also updated is the media system; the 6.5-inch touchscreen gives you Apple CarPlay and Android Auto access standard so you can use all of your apps and devices safely while driving. Also available are leather trimmed seats and steering wheel on the optional trims to elevate your interior luxury near San Francisco.

The 2018 Crosstrek capitalizes on the success of the previous models, so there are no drastic design changes; we are plenty happy with the upgraded mechanics and modern looks. We think that this tried and true crossover is the perfect family or adventure car available near Hayward, and we want our customers to come in and experience it for themselves. So come on down to our Oakland lot today and schedule a test drive.
