Japanese crossover Subaru Crosstrek in the near future will receive a hybrid version. It is known that the initial price of the novelty will be 23 000 dollars. The official sales start is scheduled for the end of this year.

We would like to note that the compact crossover Subaru Crosstrek (in some automobile markets is known as the XV), is sold from a distant 2011. Unfortunately, in our country this car has not yet been introduced. It is known that thanks to the efforts of Subaru engineers, Crosstrek is equipped with a plug-in hybrid power unit – its battery can be recharged from the usual household network.

So far, there is no data on the composition of the power plant of the new modification of the Japanese crossover. Let’s just note that the usual version of the crossover is offered with one single 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is designed for a maximum power of 152 hp, with the “ceiling” of torque being 145 Nm.

According to official data, an eco-friendly version of the compact SUV will go to the automotive markets of the planet at the end of this year, and its initial version will be estimated at a minimum of 23,000 dollars. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid will be positioned as a 2019 model year car.

It is known that already in the basic version, the Japanese novelty will receive a full drive system, a 6.5-inch screen of a multimedia complex, a keyless access system to the interior, as well as folding rear seats (4 or 6 seats) and a corporate complex of security systems EyeSight. It is reported that EyeSight will be available absolutely for all versions of the car. In addition, already in the initial configuration, the salon will have a fully digital instrument panel, as well as a system for monitoring tire pressure.

Note that the EyeSight complex includes an emergency braking system, adaptive cruise control, and an assistant that will inform the driver of an unintended lane change.
