While many vehicles claim to be compact crossovers, they are usually compact only in price while being large in size. However, the Subaru XV Crosstrek is the perfect crossover between the SUV and the regular car. This makes it perfect for all of those who need to drive in the city or city-like situations or in tight spaces but it remains an off-road vehicle as well.
It was launched in 2012 and 2013 and since then it has changed slightly with each new trim. Now there is a new Subaru XV Crosstrek, which means that the older versions will become more affordable as used vehicles.
Here are some reasons to buy a used Subaru XV Crosstrek:
Good Size for Handling
Having to park in tight spaces is a nightmare with most crossovers because they are just too long and wide for a comfortable park. However, with an XV Crosstrek, it's easy to park anywhere and it's no longer than a regular four-door car.
It's also a pleasure to drive because it has responsive steering and it's quite athletic. An older model doesn't do any damage to the experience while driving and it feels like brand new. Other than it being higher priced than the other vehicles, you won't really notice that much of a difference between this vehicle and any other car. It moves quickly and gives you good control, grip and of course, as it is a standard with Subaru vehicles – safety and security.
With standard all-wheel-drive, beefed up components and raised suspension, the XV Crosstrek shines in off-the-road situations. This did cause some doubts when the vehicle first came out – no one believed that this Subaru could do a good job on the trails but it showed that it can be great off the road. It proved to be tougher than some of its rivals. You get even more possibilities with newer used versions as the off-road capability gets slightly better with each new edition but at the similar price.
You will have an enjoyable experience in the wilderness but a comfortable ride within tight spaces and city situations as the ride quality of this crossover doesn't deteriorate over time.
Great Fuel Economy
This vehicle is not only an excellent mix of compact and off-road but it also has a great fuel economy. It has a 2.0-litre engine with 148 horsepower. It spends about 5.6l/100km which is amazing for this type of vehicle since bigger vehicles and especially crossovers in the same price range spend more.
A used Subaru XV Crosstrek is an excellent vehicle for all kinds of users – city dwellers which rely on compact vehicles for easier maneuvering in tight spaces and outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy exploring trails. With great fuel economy and it's good standard features, you'll enjoy this Subaru. Click to see more CBB vehicles and values!
