4 Reasons to Get the 2023 Crosstrek Base

April 28th, 2023 by

Earning a spot among the best resale value SUVs of 2023, the 2023 Crosstrek has been racking up sales over the last decade.

The Crossover Base comes standard with a 152-horsepower 2.0-liter boxer engine, Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT). Basic interior features include automatic climate control, power door locks, power windows with auto-up/down front windows, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with controls for the cruise, audio and Bluetooth, carpeted floor mats, and a multifunction display. Cloth upholstery covers the seats, including a manually height-adjustable driver’s seat and 60/40-split-folding rear seats. A 6.5-inch color touchscreen operates the radio and infotainment system, connected to a 4-speaker stereo. The system includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a rear backup camera, and a single USB-A charge port.  The base Crosstrek also includes rear privacy glass, power side mirrors, auto-on/off halogen headlights, variable intermittent wipers, a rear wiper/washer, 17-inch alloy wheels, remote keyless entry, and black roof rails.

One: Superior All-Terrain Performance

Subaru bases its cheapest SUV on the same basic body and platform as the Impreza compact car. The Impreza and the Crosstrek look very similar, with the same headlight casing, grille shape, tail light design, and general silhouette. 

The Crosstrek Base comes with 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The Crosstrek’s height advantage makes it the best option for mild all-terrain use or soft-roading. The SUV is perfect for taking on most off-roading adventures while still giving the SUV space and look that everyone loves. 

Two: All-Wheel Drive

The Crosstrek Base comes well known with Subaru’s sturdy symmetrical all-wheel drive system. Subaru’s all-wheel-drive system has a reputation as one of the best systems of its kind. Unlike rival crossovers,  there is no need to pay extra to get all-wheel drive in the Crosstrek. This comes  standard with the Crosstrek Base, and there is no upgrade needed to get the all-wheel drive. It’s known for its snow and wintry weather climate stability, enabling higher dry-climate handling.

Three: Comfort

The Base and Premium Trim models offer a standard manual transmission, the 2.0-liter Boxer engine, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and manually adjusting seats. Base variations of automobiles and SUVs could be much better and it would be fortunate to get AC or electric-powered windows. By comparison, the Crosstrek Base is a luxurious experience with all of the comforts wanted for everyday errands, commuting, or road trips. The Crosstrek Base has plenty of other features like cruise control, heat and AC, and vehicle dynamics control.

Four: Manual-Transmission Subaru SUV

Until now, Subaru has constantly offered the base Crosstrek with a manual transmission choice that fans have loved far and wide. As of right now, the 2023 Crosstrek Base is the last Subaru SUV that is equipped with a manual transmission. The Subaru is coming out with an exciting change in that 2024 Crosstrek; there’s no stick shift option, but for everyone that loves the manual transmission, the 2023 Crosstrek still has it.
