Subaru will bring the new and more spacious Crosstrek to the New York auto show in a matter of days, following its debut in Geneva last month, boasting a longer wheelbase in addition to revamped exterior and interior design. The new Crosstrek will keep the rugged appearance of the outgoing model as well as the wheel arch cladding, providing an 8.7-inch ground clearance and other soft-road features. The new model will ride on a 104.9-inch wheelbase (1.2 inches longer than the outgoing model) though the new version will be just 0.6 inch longer and 0.9 inch wider.

The new Crosstrek will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine producing 152 hp, up from 148 hp, and will be coupled with a six-speed manual transmission or the familiar continuously variable transmission, which in Limited trim has a "seven-speed" manual shifting mode via paddles.

The new model will come with plenty of safety tech including the EyeSight system, which offers adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, sway warning and automatic precollision braking. The Crosstrek will also have reverse automatic braking and steering responsive headlights, which will illuminate curves in the road as the car steers into them.
