Price versus efficiency gains

The verdict: The compromises and expense of the Subaru Crosstrek’s hybrid system versus the excellent standard Crosstrek make it a smart choice for a very limited clientele.

Versus the competition: Plug-in hybrids are increasingly common, and most of them come with some sort of compromise: higher cost to buy, limited cargo space, greater weight. But none of them offer standard all-wheel drive at this price like the Crosstrek Hybrid, giving it an advantage for those seeking all-weather capability and part-time electric efficiency.

We’re big fans of the Subaru Crosstrek. The standard model was updated for 2018 and is incredibly spacious for its footprint. It drives like a bigger car, features all-weather capability, has just enough off-road ability to get you most places you’re likely to want to go and is amazingly inexpensive compared with the competition. No, it’s not quick (not even decently so), but it’s reasonably efficient even with its standard flat-four-cylinder engine. The Crosstrek has won our Subcompact SUV Challenge twice, with the most recent generation taking the crown in 2018.

For 2019, Subaru has brought an electrified version back to the lineup, but the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid is available only as a plug-in hybrid — meaning it has a bigger battery capable of limited electric-only travel after you plug in and charge it.
