The XV Crosstrek is a small crossover vehicle, competing with other small crossovers and SUVs in a very crowded segment. It slots in below the Outback in Subaru's lineup of cars, offering nearly as much practicality at a lower price. The XV Crosstrek also achieves excellent fuel economy and does so without compromising Subaru's famed all-wheel-drive. It also makes use of some extremely efficient packaging, maximizing interior space while simultaneously keeping the exterior dimensions of the vehicle somewhat compact. An available gas-electric hybrid gives very good fuel economy while maintaining the Subaru go-anywhere attitude.
