Crossover Subaru Crosstrek will receive a more powerful engineFebruary 28, 2020
The new 2.5-liter engine will give the Crosstrek compact crossover an extra 30 horsepower. Data on the price of a Japanese car with a more powerful engine is still unknown. The start of sales is scheduled for the end of the year.
The Japanese crossover Subaru Crosstrek, which in some markets is known as the XV, will be available in the 2021 version of the model year with a 2.5-liter engine. This was stated by the head of Subaru’s North American office, Tom Doll.
“One of the things our customers didn’t like about Crosstrek was that the crossover lacked the power of a 2.0-liter engine,” Mr. Doll told foreign publications. “Well, a 2.5-liter engine can fix the situation.”
A larger and more powerful motor will be available in the new sports package of the compact Crosstrek crossover, as well as Limited performance.
We still have not been informed about the new engine, but most likely it will be a power plant, which is already available in some models of the automaker. In these models, the 2.5-liter engine produces 182 horsepower (239 Nm). In comparison, the 2.0-liter engine currently available at the Crosstrek has a power output of 152 hp. (197 Nm), and in the hybrid version of the crossover, the total power of the system is 148 hp.
It is unclear when exactly the Crosstrek with the 2.5-liter engine will go on sale, but expect deliveries to begin before the end of the year. A crossover with a more powerful engine, most likely, will cost more than the version with a 2.0-liter engine. The new motor will work with a six-speed “mechanics” or continuously variable transmission.
