Subaru has produced the lowest-emissions and most fuel-efficient
full-time AWD hybrid crossover in North America.
New XV Crosstrek Hybrid is quieter, quicker and more fuel-efficient.
Subaru's new hybrid crossover is built in a zero-landfill plant.
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI), is
pleased to announce that the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid will be
arriving in the Canadian marketplace by the end of November. Priced at
$29,995, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid aims to bring Canadians a more
fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly Subaru - plus more
performance and comfort.
New Subaru Hybrid Drive System
Based on the popular XV Crosstrek crossover introduced for 2013, the new
XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers the capability and versatility of the
gasoline-powered version plus the added environmental benefits of a
hybrid powertrain - including higher fuel efficiency - to broaden the
vehicle's appeal. Key to this approach is that the XV Crosstrek Hybrid
shares the gasoline model's Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel
Drive and chassis capability. With the XV Crosstrek Hybrid, Subaru
re-engineered the chassis and suspension, resulting in improved
handling, steering and ride. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid also uses the same
148-horsepower 2.0-litre 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine as the rest of
the lineup, but integrates an exclusive Lineartronic CVT (continuously
variable transmission) that attaches to a 13.5-horsepower electric
motor within its symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system to create
the new Subaru Hybrid Drive system. As a result, the Subaru XV
Crosstrek Hybrid offers enhanced engine response and fuel economy.
Already acclaimed as the most fuel-efficient full-time All-Wheel Drive
crossover in North America, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid achieves
manufacturer-estimated fuel economy ratings of 6.9 litres per 100
kilometres in the city, which also makes it Subaru's most
fuel-efficient vehicle. Contributing to its fuel-efficient status is
the XV Crosstrek Hybrid's new automatic start/stop system, which
enables the engine to stop when the vehicle is at rest with the brake
pedal activated; the engine reactivates when the brakes are released.
Subaru's hybrid crossover also goes the distance with fewer resources,
operating on battery power alone and emitting zero emissions.
The all-new Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid was born a leader in efficiency
and environmental sensitivity. Like all Subaru vehicles, the XV
Crosstrek Hybrid is built in a zero-landfill plant in Gunma, Japan.
Since every Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid has an Advanced Technology
Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) rating, it's also the
lowest-emissions All-Wheel Drive hybrid crossover in North America.
Smart Design, Inside and Out
The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers smart design features on the
outside with comfort and convenience inside. In terms of exterior
features, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers elements exclusive to this

aerodynamic aluminum alloy wheels. On the inside, comfort and
convenience features include automatic climate control, heated front
