October 14th, 2022 by


The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek just became Subaru’s best-selling model. The subcompact SUV saw a 35 percent increase in its year-over-year sales. This increase places the Crosstrek ahead of the now second-best-selling model, the Outback. While both the Crosstrek and Outback serve as competent and versatile SUVs, it seems that the Crosstrek’s fuel efficiency has been a priority for consumers. Subaru has also been updating the Crosstrek with a new Special Edition trim. The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek was also recently unveiled, so the subcompact SUV has a lot going for it. We’ll look at the 2022 Crosstrek and see how it managed to become the best-selling Subaru.

2022 Subaru Crosstrek Takes Lead as Best Seller

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek recently became the best-selling Subaru model. The subcompact SUV saw its sales increase year-over-year by 35.6 percent. That was a total of 115,344 models in 2022 versus 101,067 in 2021. With this significant increase, the 2022 Crosstrek overtook other Subaru vehicles like the Forester and Outback in overall sales. One reason for the rise in popularity is perhaps the Crosstrek’s fuel efficiency. This is on top of being highly capable and versatile, as the Crosstrek doesn’t sacrifice performance.

The 2022 Crosstrek comes with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 152 horsepower and 145lb-ft of torque. There’s also the option for a more powerful engine, a 2.5L that offers 182 horsepower and 176lb-ft of torque. The Crosstrek utilizes a continuously variable transmission along with an all-wheel-drive system. A manual transmission can also be equipped. As for its fuel economy, the compact SUV gets 28 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway with the 2.0L. With the 2.5L, the Crosstrek gets 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. There’s also the option for a hybrid setup with 90 mpg combined.

Other appealing aspects of the 2022 Crosstrek include its 8.7 inches of ground clearance. This helps drivers navigate trails and rugged terrain. The subcompact SUV is also comfortable and spacious inside. With Subaru’s advanced EyeSight safety suite, owners will enjoy a high level of safety with features such as automatic emergency braking, lane centering, and lane-keep assist. There’s also adaptive cruise control and hill descent control. Starting at an MSRP of $23,145 (plus destination fee), it’s no wonder the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek has become Subaru’s best-selling model.
