Here’s the rest of what you need to know about Subaru’s new Crosstrek!

What Mechanic School Students Should Know About the 2021 Crosstrek’s Specs

From the inside out, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek has plenty to like. For one, enthusiasts have a choice between two robust four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engines, which come in either 2.0L or 2.5L variants. The latter engine is a new addition for the model, offering 176-pound feet of torque and 182 horsepower. The 2021 Crosstrek’s suspension system and Full-Time AWD make it a fantastic choice for longer drives, and the car’s underbody is also made of extremely strong materials. Features like Lane Centering Assist and EyeSight Driver-Assist Technology are among the 2021 Crosstrek’s excellent safety features. Drivers are also able to spot things more clearly in their rear view, thanks to a screen in the Crosstrek’s centre console.

Exterior Features: A More Robust Appearance for a Better Driving Experience

The 2021 Crosstrek’s outward appearance is more rugged than seen in previous models, and yet also more refined. Part of the exterior’s appeal is the outdoor trim level’s body cladding that protects the car from damage such as scraping. The exterior has also undergone a redesign, primarily with its bumper and front fascia. Of additional interest, students in mechanic school may notice that the new Crosstrek offers high amounts of ground clearance—more specifically, 220 mm of it. This helps the vehicle improve its off-road capabilities when driving through conditions such as mud and snow. Furthermore, the suspension’s calibration and look have been fine-tuned to allow drivers a more comfortable journey on the road.

Interior Features, and How They Help Give Drivers a Smoother Ride

What’s on the inside of the 2021 Crosstrek may impress automotive college students just as much as the outside. Several infotainment systems are available in the vehicle, which are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In particular, it features a high-resolution touchscreen allowing drivers to access music, podcasts, the weather, and the news. The 2021 Crosstrek’s technology can also help drivers better navigate unfavourable conditions, via the addition of a CVT gearbox. With this inclusion, drivers have the luxury of pressing a button on the X-MODE system to activate multiple different automotive components to help improve driver safety. Drivers are also offered plenty of cargo storage room (a maximum cargo area of 1,565 L), and more rear seat legroom, helping to give a more comfortable, spacious ride to everyone on-board.
