The 3rd generation Subaru Crosstrek has just been launched by the Japanese automaker. In some areas, the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 has completely dropped the XV name. To increase customer appeal and put more pressure on the Honda CR-V, Subaru tweaked the chassis system, improved the more advanced technology, and revised the Crosstrek’s design.

Will Subaru Crosstrek be able to topple the Honda CR-V?

Compared to the old generation, the exterior of the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 has a different style, helping to highlight the personality of this SUV more clearly. The car has a 2,670 mm wheelbase with the overall dimensions of length x width x height of 4,480 x 1,800 x 1,580 (mm). Compared to the old generation, the overall length of the car has increased slightly by 15 mm.

At the front of the car are slender full LED headlights that come with a large hexagonal grille. On the front bumper, there is more of a protective plastic cover. To give the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 a more true off-road quality, the Honda CR-V’s compatriot is equipped with a ceiling mount rack and new wheel arches.

The manufacturer has upgraded the side of the car with new 17 – 18 inch wheels, more muscular floating lines. At the rear, the tailgate and rear bumper are more prominent, along with the small and seamless C-shaped LED taillights.

Inside the cabin, the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 has a comprehensive interior change with the same 11.6-inch central screen as the Levorg and the WRX as the focal point. The air conditioning system is no longer mechanically controlled, but operated on the touch screen.

It is a pity that the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 still retains the interface of 2 traditional analog clocks with a small display in between, but no digital dashboard.

Subaru Crosstrek 2023 is powered by a 2.0L e-Boxer hybrid engine. Although the specific parameters of the engine have not been announced, the manufacturer has revealed that this equipment has been better optimized to reduce noise as well as vibration. Opponents of Honda CR-V still use CVT gearbox and default 2-wheel drive system.

Subaru Crosstrek 2023 also promises to have a number of other engine options including a 2.5L petrol engine and a replacement for the old 2.0L engine.

As expected, the Subaru Crosstrek 2023 will start to go on sale in early 2023 in Japan. After that, this model will gradually encroach into other regions to compete for market share with Honda CR-V.
