The Subaru Crosstrek has already established its reputation as a fun-to-drive crossover that blends the best of SUV and hatchback designs. For 2021, drivers in the Charleston area will be happy to know than the Crosstrek is back with four major updates to make it better than ever before.

What's New?

The Crosstrek is already split into base-level, mid-level Premium, and top-of-the-line luxury-oriented Limited trims. This model year welcomes a fourth trim level: the Sport. True to its designation, the Sport stands out exterior-wise with a sharp-looking front grille, large and bold wheel arch moldings, dark gray-finished alloy wheels, and gunmetal-finish exterior accents.

Indeed, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek is considerably updated from the previous model. The revised grille and front trim make the vehicle look tougher on every Mount Plesant street. Also revised is the 18-inch machine-finished wheels, which are standard on the upper-level trims, for a more athletic stance.


While more recent models were powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injection Subaru BOXER flat-four engine, the 2021 model receives an overhaul. In place of the 2.0-liter flat-four is a larger and more powerful 2.5-liter workhorse. While the engine being replaced outputs 152 horsepower, the brand-new 2.5-liter Subaru BOXER engine produces 182 horsepower. Consequently, acceleration ability is significantly increased while providing top-shelf fuel economy—at up to 34 mpg, which our Hanahan drivers appreciate.

For the first time in its history, the Crosstrek gets Subaru’s EyeSight as a standard feature across all trims to further keep you safe when driving around Summerville. This is Subaru’s driver-assistance suite, which packages pre-collision braking to help avoid front-end collisions, adaptive cruise control with lane centering to keep you at a safe distance from vehicles in front of you, lane departure and sway warning to alert you when you leave your lane without signaling, and lane keep assist to get you back onto your lane of travel. These EyeSight technologies help you to prevent a collision from occurring and gives you the necessary peace of mind you need to drive around West Ashley.
