Subaru introducing 2019 Crosstrek plug-in hybrid with Toyota Hybrid System

Subaru of America announced its first plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV), the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid. The new Crosstrek Hybrid maintains all the capability of the traditional Subaru Crosstrek with increased fuel efficiency.


2018 Subaru Crosstrek Limited.

The Crosstrek Hybrid is an advanced, eco-friendly version of the versatile compact SUV that has become the brand’s third best-selling model in America. The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid integrates a four-cylinder direct-injection Subaru BOXER engine, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, all-new transmission and the Toyota Hybrid System (THS).

The Crosstrek Hybrid combines the wide-ranging off-road capability of the gas-powered Crosstrek with hybrid efficiency.

Arriving at Subaru retailers near the end of this year, the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid will also feature unique styling, calling out its distinct abilities. Like the gasoline-powered Crosstrek models, the 2019 Crosstrek Hybrid is built around the Subaru Global Platform that was designed to accommodate hybrid and electric powertrains.


Weak sauce. Subaru is so late to the party. They need an all electric to be relevant.
