Review: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek arrives at Waikem Subaru in Massillon, Ohio with upgrades that enhance style, safety and capabilities. It remains one of the top vehicles on the road today and we’re excited for you to see it today. 
More Space
The new Crosstrek is redesigned for enhance cargo space and more legroom. This year’s model has approximately 1.1-inches more passenger legroom and 3.4 cubic feet more cargo space. The Crosstrek can now boast class-leading interior volume and ground clearance. 
Built for adventure
The Crosstrek is the perfect vehicle for outdoor adventures. Every Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru’s Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, making it one of the safest vehicles on the road today. In ice and snow, you’ll have a much easier commute behind the wheel of a Crosstrek. 
Also if you’re someone who likes to hike, bike, camp, kayak or canoe, the Crosstrek is your top choice. We mentioned the spacious cabin and ample trunk space already. That means you can load up all your gear for the trip, and the All Wheel Drive capabilities make it easy to get to a camp site, dock, or trail. 
Improved Subaru EyeSight
EyeSight is Subaru’s advanced safety suite of technology, and new options this year keep you even safer on the daily drive. 
Cameras are mounted above the rearview mirror that monitor traffic and react to conditions even before you do.
If it senses danger or a collision, Subaru EyeSight will alert you through audible chimes and visible warning lights. Eyesight can also apply the brakes automatically, optimize your cruise control, and warn you if you sway out of your lane.
Automatic reverse braking means if you're traveling in reverse, and the Crosstrek anticipates a collision, the vehicle will automatically engage the brakes and help prevent an accident.
New this year, the Steering Responsive Headlights aim the beams in the direction of the vehicle on curved roads to help improve nighttime visibility. High Beam Assists automatically activates and deactivates the high beams when the system detects a vehicle ahead or oncoming vehicle.
Upgrade to the Subaru Starlink Safety and Security Connected Services to get automatic collision notifications. It will alert an advisor in the event of an emergency, plus you'll get enhanced roadside assistance.
With Starlink Safety Plus and Security, you'll also have the ability to lock or unlock your doors from your smartphone.

The Crosstrek now comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connect your phone and car like never before. It lays out your apps in the same design as your phone. You can make and receive hands-free calls, send texts or have text messages read over the speakers. You can also access apps like Maps, Podcasts, Audiobooks, Skype, Pandora, Spotify, Stitcher, Tunein and others.
Voice Recognition has been added to the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek that makes it easy to use your Apple Siri system and OK Google voice commands.
