Pros and cons from a pregnant women.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek

It is a great family vehicle. I am currently pregnant and the main reason we drive this vehicle is for that reason. It is tall enough to make it easy for me to get in and out of, the suspension is great and the ride is a smooth one, and the heated seats which I only use for short periods of time really do help. This vehicle is great in snow ( I lived in Colorado when I got this vehicle) and rain (Houston). When there is a lot of water on the road and you hydroplane the steering wheel is not pulled to one side as it would with some other vehicles that I have driven. It is spacious and the hatchback does come in handy when getting groceries. One negative is that it does not have ac vents in the back, (not a major issue in Colorado) however in Houston heat it is an inconvenience but the car does cool off very fast. Very tall people might have an issue with this vehicle just because of how high the seat is. (I am 5 ft and it is not a issue for me. ) If you are a person who rides really close to other cars do not get the model with the eyesight. My mother in law has an issue when driving on the feeder road in my crosstrek when someone is turning into a parking lot and brings the car to almost a complete stop as they turn because my eyesight assist will slow the car more if the car in front is too close to you. Upside is this feature can be turned off, but if you paid extra for it why would you? I do get a great discount on car insurance for having eyesight on my crosstrek.

The Subaru Crosstrek is safe and has great features such as Apple Carplay!

2018 Subaru Crosstrek Premium

I have been driving my Crosstrek for about a year now and I can honestly say that I am in love. I feel so safe and secure in it and I feel like it's the most reliable car I have ever had. It drives with the comfort of a luxury car but with the rugged durability that we have come to associate with the Subaru brand. It's honestly so smooth and pleasant to drive, unlike the 'truck-like' feeling when you drive other SUVs. It's also quite sleek and beautiful in appearance and I just find it so aesthetically pleasing. My favorite feature has got to be the addition of Apple Carplay. I love how it mirrors my phone and that I can seamlessly send voice text messages, navigate to my destination, and listen to Spotify all at once without being distracted from the road. This is also the first vehicle I've had with a backup camera and it's so accurate and helpful! The backseat is the most spacious of all of the smaller SUVs I have been in and I really appreciate the extra space. The cargo space in the trunk is also rather large and enough for a quick grocery trip or a visit to the furniture store. I definitely see myself driving this car for many years to come because it's been so durable and reliable and it's a perfect fit for my family's needs.

Subaru crosstreks are their most popular and sought after car for a reason!

2018 Subaru Crosstrek Limited

I chose the Crosstrek for the clearance. I knew I didn't want an SUV or something too big, as I do not have great spatial reasoning or depth perception and tend to curb my car for cutting too short. The Crosstrek has the clearance to do that without hurting your tires and alignment. I always really wanted something that could drive in the snow, or mud, or any kind of weather condition. All Subarus come with all wheel drive, so that is why I initially went with them. I got the all weather package with cloth heated seats and defrost on all windows and mirrors, as I didn't feel like I am at the point in my life where I need all the tech, like lane assist and what not. Maybe on my next one. My only complaint is that even though it's got the body of a crossover, it still just has the guts of the Impreza. They told me that when I chose it, and it didn't matter to me then, but sometimes when you are driving down the freeway you really wish it had a little more get up and go. Other than that I absolutely love it and have no issues with it at all. My 6'6' boyfriend fits in it great, it can carry all sorts of stuff when you flip the back seats down, and handles rain and snow like a champ. I love my Crosstrek!!
