    It’s a Subaru first! A car with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an electric charge port. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Plug-In Hybrid gets a little help from Toyota’s …

    A bit too expensive in my opinion to be worth it. Maybe a more attractive proposition with incentives, but still, not really. Financially speaking, of course.


    Should've just made a regular hybrid that would have given the Crosstrek some much needed extra horsepower and better MPG.


    Saving only 2k that needs a return rate of 5 yrs is garbage when the price tag is premium even against regular top model xv. Its not worth the price and efficiency

    Great review


    An extremely compromised experience, makes you wonder why Subaru even bothered

    Keep in mind Tom, that Soobi drivers only cleanse their bungholes with 100% recycled dungcoupons and/or reusable cloth made from hemp, so you may want to reconsider your TP test for future Subi reviews.

    All the best,


    Model 3 starts at 35k


    I wish outback was hybrid

    Ok what’s with the weird sculptures at the side of the road at 4:05 and 6:00 minutes?!! I don’t remember seeing those on Queen Anne hill or anywhere.

    Love the blue exterior. Not a fan of the blue bits inside though. Just saying.

    Plug in hybrids are great if you don’t travel much day to day. It’s just a lot of new technology and many that are decent to drive are just expensive…at least this and the mini look cool.
    And bmw is planning to electrify every model. Same with vw I believe


    Literally sounds like a golf cart…

    Great review Tom! Too much Toyota in current Subaru offerings…

    As always. A nice and comprehensive review

    It would be nice if the return on investment on the hybrid version of the Crosstrek could be realized before the five year mark, at least when compared to the normal Crosstrek. But I'm glad to see that Subaru has a decent hybrid product available at dealerships, which I'd imagine many of the Subaru people would be interested in.


    Great review as usual, absolutely packed with pertinent info, and with the smoothest delivery!


    yet another compromised cargo space due to a battery being slapped on rather than designed into the chassis. 17miles EV range is terrible.

    i was brand loyal to subaru until they killed all turbo hatches. bye bye subaru.

    This vehicle makes no sense. Subaru should invest R&D on a ful electric vehicle imo.

    Comment if you disagree or agree.

    Gets cold here, battery pack would get a serious workout. No for now. Great review as always.

    Still a compelling CUV with its 2.4t engine option

    That cargo capacity reduction is less than I thought. HMMMM. As always, you’re awesome, Tom!

    They got rid of the hybrid but have a plug in hybrid??? Lol whaaaa

    I would assume that this hybrid would have better mpg than the rav4, does the actual mechanical awd over the rav4 electric one make a difference?

    Nice, and I thought I was going to abandon the brand for my next car
