2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid: Efficient AWD

Mierins Automotive Group | Published on July 24 2015

We all know Subaru is known for its all-wheel drive systems, but now the Japanese manufacturer has broadened its horizons and its engineering technology to bring you the first ever Subaru hybrid product: the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid.

The idea that a vehicle loaded with all the attributes we’ve come to know and love from Subaru also offers an eco-friendly next-generation powertrain almost seems too good to be true. But it is very much real, and it is very much a Subaru product through and through.

 

For starters, it is at its core, the much-loved and highly capable XV Crosstrek, a model that entered the Subaru family just a few short years ago. Generous ground clearance (220mm) and a roomy hatchback (up to 1,422L), plus standard raised-profile roof rails for all your active-lifestyle goods mean this crossover’s got what it takes to tackle anything the city and/or country has to throw its way.

 

Of course, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid is about so much more than travelling off the beaten path with everything in tow; Subaru’s brand new hybrid technology is at play under the rugged exterior body panels.

 

Equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine that produces 148 horsepower, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid also features a 13.4-horsepower electric motor. Mated to a CVT that features a 6-speed manual mode option with paddle shifters, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid can achieve up to 7.9L/100km in the city and 6.9L/100km on the highway. All the while sporting full-time, all-wheel drive. Year round.

 

Full EV mode can be activated and maintained under gentle acceleration and under speeds of 42 km/h.

 

Unlike most eco-friendly hybrid vehicles, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid retains its masculine, rugged exterior looks. The Crosstrek Hybrid sports a few eXVlusive bits on its exterior, including a vibrant Plasma Green Pearl paint, hybrid badging, and 17” alloy wheels aerodynamically styled for look and efficiency.

 

Inside, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid features a functional and modern layout with cloth seats, and a 6.2” touchscreen for infotainment, as well as a second upper-level screen to display fuel savings and an energy flow graphic to keep you in the optimally green zone while driving.

 

In all, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid is a highly versatile and efficient compact crossover from a company with a rich history in all-weather capabilities. Mixing the practicality of AWD with the fuel-saving technology of a hybrid engine, Subaru has successfully blended two disciplines into one highly attractive and affordable package.
