The Crosstrek Hybrid uses Subaru StarDrive® Technology to combine the efficiency of a plug-in electric vehicle for city commuting with the long-range capability of a SUBARU BOXER® gasoline engine for road trips without limits. The gas engine charges the electric battery even if you can't plug in, so there's no worry about running out of electric power. The Crosstrek Hybrid provides up to 90 MPGe and up to 480 miles of total vehicle range*, all with the confidence of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
Subaru StarDrive Technology is smartly designed to give you ultimate freedom. Simply drive how you want and this advanced system automatically optimizes power, torque, and fuel efficiency to deliver not only improved acceleration but up to 90 MPGe. Take on any adventure and leave worries behind.
The Crosstrek Hybrid has all the capability you've come to expect from a Subaru SUV, including standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It makes for improved handling, efficiency, and a quicker response to road conditions. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Crosstrek Hybrid can handle all kinds of weather and off-pavement adventure as well.
Our engineers designed the most efficient Crosstrek yet. With Subaru StarDrive Technology, the advanced hybrid drivetrain can instantly generate torque for effortless acceleration – which is more responsive and means you're always ready and nimble in traffic. With 1,000 pounds of towing capacity, you can bring along everything you need for your latest adventure.
The system will run on a combination of electric and gas power. To maximize efficiency, the Crosstrek Hybrid automatically draws power from the hybrid battery first. The battery also recharges by harnessing kinetic energy, such as when you're coasting downhill or whenever you take your foot off the throttle. The system can also draw more power from the gas engine when you need it. It constantly works to maximize power and efficiency so you don't have to worry about either.
The Crosstrek Hybrid will automatically drive in all-electric mode as much as possible, saving you fuel costs by achieving up to 90 MPGe while still delivering generous off-the-line power. When the weather turns, only Subaru gives you the confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
When you want to maintain the battery's charge level, Battery Save Mode directs the gas engine to provide most of the power while keeping the battery level as constant as possible. This is useful when you're taking a longer trip and plan to do more electric driving later.
The Crosstrek Hybrid battery automatically recharges while you're on the road. When the battery gets low, the gas engine will automatically start up and charge it. You can also charge the battery by driving in Battery Charge Mode, which directs the gas engine to charge the battery at all times, even when the vehicle is stopped – gaining up to 33% of battery capacity in 30 minutes of driving.
You can charge the Crosstrek Hybrid at home using the included charger or anywhere with a standard outlet. When plugged into a 120V household outlet (Level 1), the Crosstrek Hybrid can take approximately five hours to completely charge a fully depleted battery. When using a 240V outlet (Level 2), a full charge only takes approximately two hours. Most commercial charging stations use the 240V charging capability, enabling faster charge times for your Crosstrek Hybrid.
With the Charge Finder app, you're able to search for and identify nearby public charging stations from inside the Crosstrek Hybrid via the in-vehicle touchscreen. This STARLINK application utilizes a nationwide network of charging stations to provide detailed information for each station, including location, charger availability, charging rates, charger compatibility, and hours of operation.
The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is eligible for High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane access in select states*, including California, Maryland, and New York, so your commute can be even more efficient and enjoyable.
