2023 Subaru Crosstrek; goodbye to “XV” and the new generation

The 2023 Subaru Crosstrek badge, which will now represent the international model family, is changing to the third generation.

Crosstrek, which is preparing to leave its 10th year behind in its journey in Subaru’s product range, is a name we are used to seeing with the XV badge in some markets such as Turkey. The transition to the 2023 model year of the family, whose future was uncertain for a while in the electric revolution, where the brand has begun to take steps slowly with Solterra, shows that the adventure will continue for a long time. With a new step taken for the product range, which has been on the street with its second generation since 2017, we are moving to the third generation. It is important to note that the XV badge will be parted with the recently launched 2023 Subaru Crosstrek. This means that the car is now available for sale in Turkey under the name Crosstrek.

Important parts of the 2023 Subaru Crosstrek

Crosstrek, which we think was done because the choice on the side of the name evokes more off-road capabilities, brings to mind more about the creation operation when viewed as a design. When we look at the front of the car, it is amazing that the face has been made a little more modern with an effort to show it beautifully with chrome parts. LED cornering lights will also be used for the first time in the new front light group combined with Full-LED technology. Again, the use of plastic on the front bumper, which emphasizes the elements of the cross, is among the points that we have not seen in the second generation. At the rear, the new C-shaped LED lights add character to the work, while the complete modification of the body panels, especially the bumpers, can be easily distinguished.

When we look at the car in terms of dimensions, an increase of 15 millimeters in the side length of 4,480 millimeters makes a difference. A length of 1,580 mm, a ground clearance of 200 mm and a wheelbase of 2,670 mm are also at the front of the technical table. The new Crosstrek’s underpinnings are built on SGP, Subaru’s global platform. With this updated infrastructure, the brand underlines the information that driving comfort has been brought to the table with redesigned seats and increased isolation.

These new standards in terms of driving are combined with modern cockpit features. The new 11.6-inch multimedia panel brings the experience we’ve become accustomed to from new models to the Crostrek. With this panel, there is also a farewell to the keys of the air conditioner. This improvement in the center has given way to an unexpected bias on the driver’s side. The digital driver panel, which we see in almost every model on the market, is not visible at any level of equipment of the new Crostrek. Here, users will be greeted by analog gauges and a digital information display.


We can say that we have found the engines we have been waiting for under the hood of the third generation Subaru Crosstrek. We will see a hybrid boxer unit with a volume of 2.0 liters, which will also be shown on the Turkish market, and a combination of CVT transmission at the door of the family. No technical data has been shared for this version, which will have the brand’s powerful all-wheel drive system as standard. With the third generation, more compact engines are expected to come to the Crosstrek. Gradually we will see the model, which will be available in Japan next year, in other regions as well.
