It should be exciting to hear more updates about 2025 Subaru Crosstrek considering that the auto maker has been busy developing the model. According to many sources, the new Crosstrek would be constructed as a next generation model. Plus, it would get a new technology that will improve its performance and abilities. What can we expect from the new Crosstrek, after all?
Spied Prototype Testing
According to Nikkei Asia, the auto maker has been spotted testing their subcompact SUV, and it’s likely that it includes the self driving technology, which isn’t only new but pretty cool too. The prototype was spotted with a connect model although data connection didn’t seem to be available.
The company has been spotted doing experiments with new technologies in its Hokkaido center. The prototype was designed as a subcompact SUV with 4G enabled system. According to reports, the auto maker has been collecting data non-stop concerning the position of the car to understand its abilities and performance, especially on the road.
The Possible New Tech
The 2024 model of Crosstrek has been packed with EyeSight (safety) technology. The system is about auto braking together with other features related to driver assistance. Some reports say that the auto maker wants to develop the self drive tech before 2025 so the car can drive itself even when there is no data connection.
Besides the autonomous driving, it’s possible that Subaru is developing their EyeSight technology into EyeSight X, which will likely be included in the upcoming 2025 Subaru Crosstrek, along with the Outback, Forester, and Ascent. The technology is meant to create a non-collision ride that can seriously improve the safety of the driver and passengers. This technology can also be helpful in situations where drivers may experience difficulty to see the surrounding areas. When combined together with the new camera, computer is able to recognize the surrounding situations, like snow-covered road lane markers.
Auto parking is another technology believed to improve the quality of Crosstrek, as well as other Subaru’s models. Parking lot accidents, statistics wise, are surprisingly quite common and they are happening everywhere. So, when the new EyeSight X tech is combined together with the sophisticated auto parking system, it’s expected to improve the safety of the user.
The Exterior Updates
The changes will also take place on the exterior area. The new exterior is said to be sleeker, highly likely inspired from the sixth gen Forester. It comes with a new grille design, together with the headlight housing and also the company’s emblem. The size of the wheels may range from 17 inches to 19 inches.
The aerodynamics part of the car will also improve, thanks to the hard work of the engineers. They somewhat stiffen the frame of the ride, while lightening the load altogether. As a result, passengers can enjoy smoother driving experience with even fun-to-maneuver control. The ground clearance (the 8.7 inch measurement) will stay the same, while the all wheel driving system has been made better. Not only it’s going to be handy when delivering faster responses, but it’s also helpful in tricky (driving) situations.
Powertrain and Performance
The 2025 Subaru Crosstrek will be running on Boxer unit with 2.5 liter capacity, generating 180 hp and 178 Nm of torque. The output may not be as punchier as the previous model, but it has more torque. It’s paired up with CVT for smoother and also quieter outcome.
Price and Launch Date
If everything goes as planned, the new Crosstrek should be available at dealerships around summer months of 2024. If the price remains, it should start from around $27,000 to around $32,200. Crosstrek is supposed to get in a rivalry with Honda HR-V, Kia Seltos, VW Taos, Toyota Corolla Cross, Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30, Chevy Trax, Kia Niro, and Chevy Trailblazer. We should know more about 2025 Subaru Crosstrek once further info is available.
