2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid: 90 MPGe comes with compromises | Review and Road Test
2019 Subaru Crosstrek plug-in hybrid gives up a lot for a few mpg’s. This new plug-in hybrid variant sacrifices much of what we loved in the pursuit of a few more miles per gallon. Read the full review- https://roadshow.co/aCCpgX
Before I discuss the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid in length, let me say that I genuinely enjoy the standard, gas-powered Crosstrek. It’s manageably sized, solid to drive, possesses surprising off-road chops and, crucially, it feels like a good value — especially in lower trims. I’ve even grown to like its chunky, quasi-rally car looks.
It seemed reasonable to me, then, that adding a plug-in hybrid powertrain with a slug of pure electric range and whisper-quiet operation around town would be something of a slam dunk.
I was wrong.
After spending a week with this crossover SUV, I’m left with the impression that the added electrons do little more than make the Crosstrek Hybrid markedly less attractive.
