The all-new 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid will be arriving at AutoNation Subaru West. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid is Subaru’s first-ever production hybrid vehicle and when it goes on sale it will be America’s most fuel-efficient and lowest-emission AWD hybrid crossover. Here AutoNation Subaru West has provided our customers with a preview of all the fantastic features of the all-new 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid.
You are treated to a number of great new design and comfort features with the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Inside the spacious and comfortable interior of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid you’ll find 50.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. The included All-Weather Package provides you with heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, and a windshield wiper de-icer. Subaru also created an exclusive new exterior color for the XV Crosstrek Hybrid; Plasma Green Pearl, which helps to spotlight the Crosstrek Hybrid’s environmental character. And with the XV Crosstrek Hybrid you’re still provided with the same great capability and versatility that you’ve come to expect from the gas model, such as 8.7 inches of ground clearance.
Standard on the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid is a Color Multi-Function Display which makes it easy for you to see the hybrid system’s energy flow, even taking into account your current driving conditions. The display uses switching screens to show you both important information about driving operation and fun entertainment content. Better yet the screens can be seen from any seat in the Crosstrek. Also standard on the XV Crosstrek Hybrid is a rear vision camera which will allow you to spot obstacles behind you more easily when you’re backing up. And the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid continues Subaru’s long standing commitment to safety.
You and your family will feel surrounded by exceptional safety with the Ring Shaped Frame Reinforcement body structure and the Subaru Advanced Airbag System, which includes front seat head/chest side impact airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver’s knee airbag. To protect you and your passenger’s spines and necks from serious injury in a rear-end collision the XV Crosstrek Hybrid’s front and rear seats feature whiplash protection.
Standard on the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid is a 4-cylinder BOXER engine which features an integrated electric motor and Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission. The integrated starter/generator includes an auto start/stop function and brake regeneration. Conveniently installed under the rear cargo area is a 13.5kW, 100V nickel-metal-hydride battery. With the electric motor you’ll have 13.4 horsepower and 48 lb.-ft. of torque. With the gas engine you’ll have 148 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque.
With the Active Torque Split version of the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive the system will send power to all four wheels and adjust the torque in response to the road conditions, cornering, and acceleration. To better handle the weight of the battery, as well as to provide you with improved handling, steering, and ride Subaru has re-engineered the chassis of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid.
The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek starts around $22,000, and at that level, the value equation is strong. All Crosstreks start with the Premium trim level–there’s no base trim and come with air conditioning, power accessories, cruise control, and keyless entry. Of course, the brand’s all-wheel drive is a standard fitting on every Crosstrek as well.
Move up to the top-level Limited trim, and you’ll add leather upholstery, leather shift-knob and steering-wheel trim, automatic climate control, and a fold-down rear-seat armrest with cupholders for rear passengers. The Limited model’s audio system includes a 4.3-inch display screen, HD Radio, and a rearview camera.
