2015 SUBARU XV CROSSTREK: Subaru of America, Inc. has introduced the 2015 XV Crosstrek and XV Crosstrek Hybrid crossover models, both on display during the 107th Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 14-22, 2015. The versatile, fun-to-drive XV Crosstrek combines bold five-door design, a highly capable chassis, best-in-class fuel economy and updated infotainment features. Subaru offers the XV Crosstrek in 2.0i, 2.0i Premium and 2.0i Limited models, the latter adding additional luxury amenities and infotainment technology. Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, high ground clearance (8.7 inches), 17-inch alloy wheels and ample room for passengers and cargo make Subaru XV Crosstrek a high-capability crossover. Both the gasoline and hybrid models feature the Subaru BOXER engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard. All gasoline models are powered by a 148-horsepower 2.0-liter BOXER engine, teamed to a five-speed manual transmission or available second- generation Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The XV Crosstrek Hybrid model’s 2.0-liter Subaru BOXER engine uses a slightly higher compression ratio with the main performance boost coming from the permanent-magnet AC synchronous electric drive motor. Total hybrid system output is 160- hp, and the electric drive motor is integrated into the CVT and includes a manual mode with steering wheel paddle switches. Among the standard features in the Premium are heated front seats, heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth control switches; power windows, door locks and side mirrors; multi-function display with fuel economy information; security system with engine immobilizer; outside temperature gauge, and carpeted floormats.
