A gorgeous Plasma Yellow Pearl 2021 Subaru Crosstrek glows in the evening lights. The color is more margarita lime than yellow, but it’s delicious. The four-door, five-passenger compact Crosstrek is all-new, with refreshed yet familiar styling, two engine choices, and four trim lines.

Crosstrek has Subaru’s celebrated Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, 1,500 pounds of towing, and 8.7” of ground clearance. The Sport and Limited (which I drove) has an all-new 182-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a perfectly modulated CVT. A 2.0-liter with a six-speed manual powers the base and premium trim.

Athletic refinement oozes from the Crosstrek, with body-colored detailing on the steering wheel and handy power leather seats in the stylish cabin. The Sport version provides a vegan option with fabric free of animal content. Visibility is excellent thanks to tall windows, a wide windscreen, and a slim “A” pillar.

The Limited is responsive and planted through rolling Virginia hills and soft off-roading, with enough power to please and still achieve over 26 MPG in aggressive driving. Braking was straight and solid under pressure, even on gravel.

The 2021 Crosstrek offers accessories for a variety of lifestyles, so order some margaritas and check it out. Just don’t drink and drive.
