Drivers in Syracuse, Oneida, and Liverpool can learn more about the Subaru Crosstrek towing capacity by taking a look at this in-depth review prepared by our team here at Bill Rapp Subaru.

Crosstrek Towing Performance

The Subaru Crosstrek is equipped with a 2.0L SUBARU BOXER® engine. It cranks out up to 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, and can be partnered with the available Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) to maximize power and efficiency. This SUV gets an EPA-estimated 27 city/33 highway MPG.

All-wheel drive is standard for all models, giving this crossover surefootedness and reliability in a variety of road conditions. It also benefits from the horizontal orientation of its engine, which lowers its center of gravity and provides better handling, composure, and balance to its ride quality. So, no matter what you're towing, you'll be able to get it to your destination.

Properly equipped, the Crosstrek is capable of towing up to 1,500 pounds. This ensures that you have adequate power and capability for light trailers or a personal watercraft for your next weekend adventure.

2020 Crosstrek Safety Features

The Crosstrek makes it possible for you to benefit from an array of advanced safety features that keep you protected on the road with or without a trailer in tow.

EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is available for the Crosstrek. It uses a forward-facing camera system and features Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-collision Braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist.

These driver-assisting technologies provide better visibility and awareness for the road ahead, so you'll have more peace of mind behind the wheel. The Subaru Crosstrek also has available Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

These features are helpful for virtually every driving scenario, but they're especially useful for towing. They'll make it much easier to merge, pass, and stop effectively. Plus, with the collision-avoidance features working to protect you, you'll have more confidence while you haul.

Additional Features

Aside from the impressive Subaru towing capacity and safety technologies, the Subaru Crosstrek also has many other amenities that help make it a practical and well-rounded SUV.

It comes standard with such features as 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats, so that you can make the most of the 55.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Plus, there's leather-trimmed seating and an automatic climate control system to keep you comfortable.

For technology, the Crosstrek comes with the SUBARU STARLINK™ infotainment system. It features an available 8-inch touchscreen display and connective features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. With this, you'll have access to your phone's media and connectivity capabilities, ensuring you have the entertainment and information you need for the journey ahead.

You'll be able to rock out while you tow, too! When your favorite song comes on, be sure to turn up the volume on the available 432-watt, 8-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system.
