Styling: 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek
In a nutshell, the XV Crosstrek is a modified hatchback version of the current Subaru Impreza. The XV is built off the Impreza platform, with changes that include a taller suspension and more rugged, bolstered styling. According to specifications, the Subaru XV delivers 8.7 inches of ground clearance – a good amount for those who trek through snow or dirt on a regular basis.
Inside, the XV delivers a smidge of extra cargo space when compared to the Subaru Impreza. There's plenty of room in both the front and rear seat to insinuate passengers will be comfortable no matter where they wind up sitting. Maximum cargo capacity for the XV is listed at 45 cubic feet.
