All-WWheel Drive

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is built to handle more of the challenges faced by drivers every day. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system regulates road travel, ensuring better cornering in dry conditions. In wet conditions, the Crosstrek grabs the road for better traction during stops and around corners. If the weather is really bad with snow or ice on the ground, the Crosstrek has a better chance of overcoming travel difficulties and continuing on a safe course. The Rogue, Escape and Rogue Sport offer all-wheel drive at a higher cost. All of these vehicles offer crash avoidance features such as a blind spot monitor, a rear cross-traffic alert, and a lane departure watch. Other available systems include an autobrake with forward collision warning.
