Sentiment Score 47%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Even in Limited trim, the Crosstrek lacks any adjustable lumbar support. The backseat is quite airy for adults, offering plenty of space for legs. With its rear backrests up, this Subaru provides 20.8 cubic feet of space. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder is now offered for 2021.

Pros
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of standard equipment
Cons
  • Lane-centering is a bit annoying
  • No adjustable lumbar support

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid doesn't really perform the crossover or plug-in hybrid roles very well. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV does have all-wheel drive, as well as more electric-only range than the Subaru (22 miles), but with lower efficiency (74 MPGe on electricity, 25 mpg on gasoline) The Kia Niro is a hatchback masquerading as a crossover. The Toyota Prius Prime is the most efficient car.

Pros
  • Cheaper than standard Crosstrek Hybrid
  • Good towing capacity
Cons
  • Lacks all-wheel drive
  • Not as fun to drive as rivals
