Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid

Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid,  is a thing you should not do with 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek drive across the freaky of Iceland with its hard-packed dust liberally strewn black rock shards, hot springs, river crossings of an cold slurry roughly the depth of one Subaru hood, and bordered by snow walls enough to allow the braver and idiotic of us to go glancing, like Hot Wheels cars, off walls and one another in the hope of not getting And so it is that Subaru finds with about 10 of these little hybrid runabouts mangled front fascias, panels, and various other not immediately apparent.

After a long day of this Subaru and its hired guides in a snowplow to guide its poor cars out of the wilderness as darkness The plow was an enormous tractor six-foot-tall rear tires, a cabin, and snow chains. It, got stuck in the snow.

No part of adventure made any sense but it did provide us the opportunity to sleep in a called Landmannalaugar, eat part of a and achieve an indicated 18 mpg in a small hybrid.

A hybrid that is rated at mpg on the EPA cycle (only 3 mpg better than that of its $3000-cheaper brother) doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense, either. we anticipate that this with its 13-hp electric jammed into its CVT and a former well now filled with an nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, sell in places where the and political climates favor a Subaru (we’re looking at Boulder, Colorado).

Surely buyers will appreciate the peak horsepower and torque of the Horsepower stands at 160 combined and peaks at 163 lb-ft, not bad for a slightly C-segment faux-utility vehicle. XV claims the hybrid weighs 304 pounds than the standard so the gas-electric variant likely be any quicker at the test track. It however, feel handier town, thanks to the additional

Certain buyers will be with the hybrid’s capability to from a stop using electric power. In theory, it run electric-only up to 13 mph, but to accomplish you will seriously irritate the behind you. Like all the Crosstrek has a standard stop-start In the Subaru XV, this capability a third battery, this one under the hood.

The hybrid carries a healthy layer of sound-deadening material and an acoustically windshield. The XV Crosstrek needed additions more than it a hybrid powertrain.

A quicker ratio (14.0:1 compared the standard car’s 15.5:1), with some suspension changes, improve the hybrid’s Subaru says some of changes and additions will to the standard car, as well should.

There is no real competitor for the XV hybrid, which is either a thing for Subaru or an indication there’s no market for such a hybrid oddball. But the basic hybrid will start at with a higher level of equipment than the standard A Touring version, which a navigation system, a sunroof, and seats, is available for $30,120.

So go and purchase a new XV Crosstrek hybrid if its odd appeal to you (and you don’t to wait for the updated version of the car). Just beware of any described as a “corporate car with few miles” and sold by a man who smells of and fish.  Subaru XV Crosstrek
