New Color Option on the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek near New Iberia LA

2021 Subaru Crosstrek near New Iberia LA: Hybrid Model

Besides getting a hybrid model, the exciting news from Subaru is the availability of the 2.5 liter turbocharged flat four Boxer engine. It's the same one found in the Legacy, Forester, and Outback. Only the new Sport and Limited trims have the option of the new motor, which gets an additional 30 hp for a total of 182. The base and Premium continue to receive the 2.0-liter engine and come equipped with a 6-speed manual, but a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is optional. Sport and Limited trims come with the CVT only.

The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek near New Iberia LA also gets a restyled grille and front bumper for all models and fresh 17- and 18-inch wheel designs. And since the Crosstrek Sport is a brand-new model for 2021, it has some special details like StarTex water-repellent fabric inside, and styling updates like larger wheel arches and gunmetal gray accents outside. Automatic lane centering will now be included with the adaptive cruise control, which is part of the EyeSight safety suite.

Fuel economy is good, with the basic engine getting 28 mpg city, 33 highway, and 30 combined when mated to the CVT, and 22/29/25 with the stick. Surprisingly, the 2.5-liter model is nearly the same as the other, rating 27/34/29 mpg.
