2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Overview

Is the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid a Good Used SUV?

What Does Subaru's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Subaru offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Subaru extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. Subaru provides no additional coverage for CPO vehicles, so buyers receive the remainder of the original three-year/36,000-mile new-car warranty. However, buyers can purchase additional coverage. Every CPO Subaru must pass a 152-point inspection. Additional benefits like owner loyalty discounts, a one-year Starlink Safety Plus trial subscription, towing, and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Subaru warranty page carefully.

According to our analysis, Subaru’s CPO program isn’t particularly robust. Among affordable automakers, Toyota, Mazda, Honda, and many others have better programs.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid or 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid?

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is one of the best hybrid SUVs on the road, and it comes packed with an impressive list of standard safety and tech features, much like the Crosstrek Hybrid does. The Toyota touts a higher predicted reliability rating than the Subaru, as well as a roomier cabin and cargo hold. It also boasts exceptional fuel economy estimates. However, with the capability to drive up to 17 miles on electric-only power, the Crosstrek Hybrid’s plug-in functionality offers some versatility that the RAV4 Hybrid does not. Both are great options with top-notch safety scores, but if you prioritize comfort and livelier handling, go with the RAV4 Hybrid.

Which Is Better: 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid or 2019 Kia Niro?

The 2019 Kia Niro is a solid choice among hybrid and electric SUVs. It offers multiple fuel-efficient powertrain options including all-electric, plug-in hybrid, and normal hybrid variants, and it provides plenty of standard tech features. When it comes to standard safety features, however, the Niro falls well short of the Crosstrek Hybrid’s offerings. Another key difference is that the Subaru comes standard with all-wheel drive, while the Kia only offers front-wheel drive. Also, like the Crosstrek Hybrid, the Niro suffers from a small cargo hold and less second-row space than many competitors. Choosing between these two hybrid SUVs is a matter of preference.

  • Drivetrain: all-wheel drive
