Hybrid Technology

90 MPGe[1] with Subaru StarDrive Technology

The Crosstrek Hybrid uses Subaru StarDrive Technology to combine the efficiency of a plug-in electric vehicle for city commuting with the long-range capability of a SUBARU BOXER gasoline engine for road trips without limits. The gas engine charges the electric battery even if you can't plug in, so there's no worry about running out of electric power. The Crosstrek Hybrid provides up to 90 MPGe and up to 480 miles of total vehicle range[2], all with the confidence of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.


All of the power. All of the efficiency. All of the confidence.

Subaru StarDrive Technology is smartly designed to give you ultimate freedom. Simply drive how you want and this advanced system automatically optimizes power, torque, and fuel efficiency to deliver not only improved acceleration but up to 90 MPGe. Take on any adventure and leave worries behind.

Everyday Driving

The system will run on a combination of electric and gas power. To maximize efficiency, the Crosstrek Hybrid automatically draws power from the hybrid battery first. The battery also recharges by harnessing kinetic energy, such as when you’re coasting downhill or whenever you take your foot off the throttle. The system can also draw more power from the gas engine when you need it. It constantly works to maximize power and efficiency so you don’t have to worry about either.

All-Electric Power

The Crosstrek Hybrid will automatically drive in all-electric mode as much as possible, saving you fuel costs by achieving up to 90 MPGe while still delivering generous off-the-line power. When the weather turns, only Subaru gives you the confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

When you want to maintain the battery’s charge level, Battery Save Mode directs the gas engine to provide most of the power while keeping the battery level as constant as possible. This is useful when you’re taking a longer trip and plan to do more electric driving later.

Charging on the Go

The Crosstrek Hybrid battery automatically recharges while you’re on the road. When the battery gets low, the gas engine will automatically start and begin to recharge. You can also charge the battery by driving in Battery Charge Mode, which directs the gas engine to charge the battery at all times, even when the vehicle is stopped – gaining up to 33% of battery capacity in 30 minutes of driving.

Plug-in Charging

You can charge the Crosstrek Hybrid at home using the included charger or anywhere with a standard outlet. When plugged into a 120V household outlet (Level 1), the Crosstrek Hybrid can take approximately five hours to completely charge a fully depleted battery. When using a 240V outlet (Level 2), a full charge only takes approximately two hours. Most commercial charging stations use the 240V charging capability, enabling faster charge times for your Crosstrek Hybrid.

Charge Finder Charging Station Locator

With the Charge Finder app, you're able to search for and identify nearby public charging stations from inside the Crosstrek Hybrid via the in-vehicle touchscreen. This STARLINK application utilizes a nationwide network of charging stations to provide detailed information for each station, including location, charger availability, charging rates, charger compatibility, and hours of operation.

Smart Savings

A Value That Lasts

The Crosstrek Hybrid is a value that gets better with every mile - not just because it's a hybrid, but because it's a Subaru. 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today[3], and Subaru is Kelley Blue Book's Most Trusted Brand for seven years running[4].

Versatile Capability

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

The Crosstrek Hybrid has all the capability you've come to expect from a Subaru SUV, including standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It makes for improved handling, efficiency, and a quicker response to road conditions. The Crosstrek Hybrid can handle all kinds of weather and off-pavement adventure with 8.7 inches of ground clearance. It's a capable combination Toyota RAV4 Prime, Kia Nero PHEV, and Mini Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 can't match. [6]

Our engineers designed the most efficient Crosstrek yet. With Subaru StarDrive Technology, the advanced hybrid drivetrain can instantly generate torque for effortless acceleration - which is more responsive and means you're always ready and nimble in traffic.

Connected and Comfortable 

Stylish, Spacious Interior

The smartly designed 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid provides a surprisingly spacious interior – with up to 100.8 cubic feet of passenger volume – in a compact SUV that remains agile and conveniently sized. That’s more passenger space than the Toyota RAV4 Prime, Mini Cooper SE Countryman ALL4, or Lexus UX Hybrid. Once inside, you’ll find a stylish, modern interior with high-contrast navy and gray leather seats with blue stitching, standard heated front seats, and an available heated steering wheel.

Flexible Cargo Area and 60/40-Split Fold-Down Rear Seats

There's always room for more fun in the Crosstrek Hybrid. A wide rear gate opening makes bigger gear easier to load. With 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks, you can fit three in the back with both rear seatbacks up or fold a seat down for extra cargo space.

The 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid features STARLINK Multimedia with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration[7]. Wireless pairing and hands-free smartphone operation allow for safe and easy connection to your favorite apps and content. Access news, navigation, music, podcasts, and more through available cloud-based STARLINK apps and SiriusXM®[8], including 4-month Platinum Plan trial subscription. An 8-inch touchscreen is standard and a built-in and voice-activated navigation system powered by TomTom® is available to help you find your new favorite place.

Advanced Safety

Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight has been found to reduce rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%.[9]

EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane[10]. It's one of the reasons why the Crosstrek Hybrid was named a 2021 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+. The automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations[11]. Lane Keep Assist can even help you steer back into your lane[12]. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind. 

SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security

STARLINK Safety and Security[13] offers an array of connected services to help keep you and your Crosstrek Hybrid safe whether you're in your vehicle, at your computer, or on your smartphone. Advanced Automatic Collision Notification will alert an operator in the event of an accident. SOS Emergency Assistance can get you roadside help at the push of a button. Crosstrek Hybrid includes the STARLINK Security Plus package for 10 years. And there are even more features for added convenience and peace of mind, including Remote Services, Vehicle Alerts, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. Also included is STARLINK Concierge service for personal assistance with tasks like navigation, restaurant reservations, and scheduling service appointments.

All-Around Awareness Technologies

The 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid features an entire suite of safety technologies to help protect you and your passengers. The standard Blind-Spot Detection[14] system warns you with a visual indicator on the side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Standard Rear Cross-Traffic Alert[15] helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up and a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances visibility when reversing. With standard Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you[16].

Frequently Asked Questions

A plug-in hybrid vehicle uses both an electric motor and gas-powered engine to optimize fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. The battery is large enough to enable electric-only operation, allowing the vehicle to be powered completely by its electric engine over limited range, and can be charged at home or a charging station, as well as by its gas-powered engine.

Owners can charge their vehicle at home or anywhere there’s a 120V outlet using the included Level 1 charging cable – or at any charging station with a 240V/Level 2 charger. With the Charge Finder app, drivers are able to locate thousands of charging stations throughout the country on their STARLINK Multimedia screen.

The 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid: Summary of Specs

2022 Crosstrek Hybrid Trims

The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is available in one trim only. Its power train is led by a 2.0-liter engine and two electric motors that combine to churn out 148 horsepower. The power train is completed by a continuously variable transmission. Like most Subarus, the Crosstrek Hybrid comes with standard all-wheel drive, which can give you extra control on slippery roads or rough terrain.

The hybrid power train includes a battery pack with a driving range of 17 miles. When it runs on gas power, the Crosstrek Hybrid achieves 35 mpg combined. In hybrid mode, it manages 90 mpg equivalent, which is a strong number for a hybrid SUV.

One optional upgrade package is available with the Crosstrek Hybrid. It costs $2,500 and includes some interior improvements, such as a moonroof and a navigation system.

Impressive Exterior Design

The Crosstrek Hybrid features cool silver accents and a unique Blue Pearl color option that set it apart from the gas-powered Crosstrek. In addition, Subaru's trademark versatility is on display with built-in roof rails, which allow you to carry cargo wherever you go. Thanks to a range of accessories, you can easily add a roof rack or ties to make transporting your things that bit easier.

The Crosstrek Hybrid measures around 14.7 feet in length, making it a reasonably compact option for city driving. If you plan on heading off the beaten track, its 8.7 inches of ground clearance mean this crossover has plenty of height to cope with a trail or two.

Roomy Interior

The Crosstrek hybrid can seat up to five people. Both rows have plenty of space for adult passengers. If you need to install kids' seating, you'll find two sets of LATCH connectors on the outside seats in the rear row and a tether anchor for the middle seat.

The Crosstrek Hybrid's cabin is a luxurious place to relax during a short drive or a longer trip. It boasts leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable seat for the driver. You can add a few upgrades as part of an optional package, including a heated steering wheel.

Behind the rear row of seats, you'll find 15.9 cubic feet of cargo-carrying capacity. That increases to 43 cubic feet with the rear row folded flat. The rear row has a 60-40 split so you can decide whether to fold it down partially and retain the use of one seat, or fold it fully flat for maximum cargo capacity.

If you'd like a Crosstrek with a touch more storage space, check out the non-hybrid Crosstreks in our York showroom. Since the gas-powered Crosstrek doesn't include a battery pack, it features over 20 cubic feet of storage at the rear and 55 cubic feet with the second row folded down.

Modern Tech Features

There's no shortage of infotainment tech inside this compact crossover to keep you and your passengers entertained while you're on the road. The Crossover Hybrid features an 8-inch infotainment screen and six-speaker stereo. An eight-speaker premium sound system is available as an optional upgrade if you want some higher performance speakers to enjoy your favorite songs or podcasts.

Subaru's infotainment system is known as Starlink. Reviewers give it praise for easy-to-access menus, and physical nobs for changing the volume and temperature, which make these settings simpler to adjust while you're driving. Thanks to standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can also link your phone to the Crosstrek Hybrid's infotainment system so you can access your music playlists and apps.

The Crosstrek Hybrid offers several additional connectivity features to help you keep on top of everything while you're on the go. You can stay online with a WiFi hotspot, connect your phone using one of the Crosstrek Hybrid's four USB ports, or connect your device using BlueTooth.

Keyless entry and push-button start also come standard. The only other optional upgrade for the interior is a navigation system.

Safety You Can Depend Upon

Subaru is renowned for producing reliable and durable vehicles. Ninety-seven percent of all Crosstrek vehicles sold over the past decade are still on the road today, which puts this crossover ahead of many other leading brands. Kelly Blue Book has awarded Subaru its most trusted brand status for eight years running.

The Crosstrek Hybrid retains this reputation with a wide range of standard safety features. It comes with forward and rear collision warning, and forward automatic emergency braking to help you avoid accidents. For highway driving, Subaru equips this crossover with adaptive cruise control, which adjusts your speed to maintain a safe distance from other motorists, and lane departure warning. Rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring can warn you if vehicles are approaching you from the rear.

Unlike many other SUVs, all of the Crosstrek Hybrid's safety tech comes standard. Perhaps this is one reason why the Institute of Insurers for Highway Safety selected the 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid as a Top Safety Pick+, the highest safety award given by the IIHS.

Has our rundown of the 2022 Crosstrek Hybrid's features helped convince you that this is the right crossover to meet your needs?
