Consumer Reports Drive Subaru XV Crosstrek [Video]
text size: A- A+
Consumer Reports... reports that it drives virtually the same as the car on which it is based - the regular Impreza hatchback, which in XV Crosstrek form gains higher and tougher suspension, as well as plastic body cladding, to prevent twigs and branches from damaging the (in this case) orange paintwork.
The XV Crosstrek, however, looks a bit awkward and ungainly, from some angles, and sadly for Subaru, they have not really managed to differentiate it sufficiently from the Impreza, and while there may be a market for such cars, their offering is not one of the best, at the moment.
