Subaru has released details of the 2020 Crosstrek and Crosstrek Hybrid with slightly higher prices than the 2019 versions and added features for some trim levels, most significantly EyeSight safety and driver assistance tech newly standard on the base model with the continuously variable automatic transmission as it has been for other trim levels.
The base model will start $285 higher at $23,155 with a six-speed manual transmission (all prices include $1,010 destination, which is up $35 and continues the industrywide trend of higher destination fees). The base Crosstrek with a continuously variable automatic transmission and standard EyeSight will start at $24,505, which is up $635. But EyeSight was an $845 base-model option for 2019, making that combination $210 more than the 2020. The package for the base model includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane keep assist. A blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert remain limited to an option package on the next-up Premium trim level with CVT and standard on the CVT-only top-tier Limited.
The Crosstrek was all-new and much improved for 2018 and was Cars.com’s winner in our comparison testing for Best Compact SUV of 2018. Changes for 2020 include a new rear seat reminder (a safety alert to check the rear seat if you opened the rear door at the start of the drive and did not open it again when you parked) that’s optional for all models. All trim levels also now have standard automatic door locks, automatic climate control and an engine stop-start system.
Pricing for the Premium trim level with six-speed manual starts at $24,205, up $335, and at $25,555 with the CVT, an increase of $685. The CVT-only top Limited trim level starts at $28,405 for 2020, up $235.
The Crosstrek Hybrid — a plug-in hybrid new for 2019 that has only one trim level and has had limited availability — will start at $36,155 for 2020, an increase of $185.
