There are a lot of things that are going to be new for the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek vehicle. The people who have owned this type of a car before will certainly notice the difference and will see how much greater the new 2017 version has become better. But the people who are new to this model will appreciate the car and will be happy in getting to know it come its release date.
The big news is that the last models were witted with an XV badge in its name but the new 2017 Subaru Crosstrek is going to lose that emblem in its name. So we do not have a XV version of the Crosstrek any more offered. All in all, the new Crosstrek model is basically a lifted version of the Impreza hatchback that has already made its debut and as this model has proven to be a good design it will be an impressive one with this model as well.
Using the new Impreza design language has been something that was important for the car as all of the future models are issuing a new type of a design that is going to follow this one. The first concept models that were shown at the Geneva Motor show have implicated that the new Crosstrek and in fact the future of Subaru is going in a good way.
