The new XV Subaru Crosstrek will be using a horizontally opposed 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. That makes 152 hp with a 145 lb-ft of torque in the US and 154 hp with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine in Europe. The XV Subaru Crosstrek will also probably get a hybrid variant. The XV Crosstrek will have greater off-road capacity thanks to the X-mode traction and Hill-descent control system, which makes this Subaru even safer than before.
