2021 Subaru Crosstrek Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.2

 The 2021 Subaru Crosstrek has a nice-looking cabin, although the materials aren’t as high-end as what you’ll find in some rivals. However, cargo and passenger space are generous, and it’s easy to use the infotainment system.

  • "In typical Subaru fashion, the Crosstrek has a basic and durable-feeling interior that prioritizes function over form." -- Car and Driver
  • "Interior materials are top-rate, especially the available black and gray seats with orange stitching." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "There are lots of nice soft-touch surfaces on the inside of the Crosstrek, especially at the top Limited trim level. If you compare the Crosstrek to some class-leading compact hatchbacks, it's middling. But among the Jeeps of the world, it's a class leader." -- Edmunds (2019)

Cargo

With 20.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 55.3 cubic feet behind the front seats, the Crosstrek has lots of space for a subcompact SUV. There’s plenty of room for luggage or outdoor gear. The load floor isn’t flat, but it’s not angled enough to be a problem either.

  • "There's 20.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 55.3 with those seats folded. That’s better than the Renegade and C-HR, but again behind the HR-V. Fortunately, the cargo area is easily accessible, without any odd angles or shapes that would make packing more of a chore than it has to be." -- Autoblog
  • "Folding the Crosstrek's 60/40 split-folding rear seat expands the cargo hold considerably, but the folded seats don't make for an entirely flat cargo floor. The Honda HR-V and the Nissan Rogue Sport held more stuff in our testing despite their smaller exterior dimensions. The Crosstrek managed to hold 19 of our carry-on suitcases with the rear seats folded; the HR-V fit 22, while the Rogue Sport held 20." -- Car and Driver
  • "One of the best things about this Subie's interior are its fold-flat seats. In this case, flat truly means that, as their angle is much flatter than the seats found in most rivals." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)

Seating

The Crosstrek seats five people. There’s ample head- and legroom, and most adults will find enough space to sit comfortably in both rows. The seats are comfortable and supportive, though some critics express a desire for adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat.

Cloth upholstery comes standard. Water-repellant cloth upholstery, leather upholstery, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats are available.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. There’s a tether anchor for the rear middle seat, and you can borrow a lower anchor from either side. The whole setup is easy to use.

  • "Although this compact Subaru SUV rides high, the driver’s seat is low to the floor, as in a standard compact car. Seat comfort is good, although we wish the driver’s seat had some sort of adjustable lumbar." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Subaru officially lists front legroom at 43.1 inches and rear legroom at 36.5 inches. That would put it above the little C-HR and between the reasonably sized Renegade and spacious HR-V. In the real world, there’s plenty of space for four 6-foot-tall passengers." -- Autoblog
  • "The seats are generally comfortable and well-bolstered." -- Edmunds (2019)

Interior Features

In addition to automatic climate control and a rearview camera, the Crosstrek comes standard with Subaru’s StarLink infotainment system. It features a 6.5-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a four-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and a USB port.

Using StarLink is easy. The touch screen has clear graphics and quick responses, and there are plenty of knobs and buttons around it for volume and climate settings.

An 8-inch touch screen, navigation, satellite radio, HD Radio, a six-speaker stereo, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, three more USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, remote start, proximity keyless entry, and a moonroof are available.

Plenty of driver aids are available, including reverse automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and Subaru’s EyeSight suite of safety features, which includes forward collision warning, forward automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

  • "Subaru's StarLink infotainment system is clearly organized, offers plenty of connectivity features as standard, and is easy to navigate in everyday use." -- Car and Driver
  • "Standard features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give the Crosstrek an easy entry point for tech-savvy users. The center screen's crisp graphics are appealing. Our test car had some issues with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. But when it's working, it's one of the nicer available interfaces." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Two areas we're glad didn't change are Subaru's traditionally excellent visibility and equally impressive control layout. The latter consists of a central touchscreen flanked by volume and tuning knobs along with some physical pushbuttons, with source and station-select 'virtual buttons' on the logically configured touchscreen. There's also an upper dash screen that displays an assortment of information, though conspicuous by its absence is a compass." -- Consumer Guide (2018)
