The Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid: Even Greener Than a Grass Car


Subaru just released it’s brand spankin’ new 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid, and it got us thinking…( Bill Nye the Science Guy Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill )! If you remember who Bill Nye the Science Guy is, chances are you remember his car made of grass. Subaru’s newest hybrid car was perhaps designed with grass in mind, maybe taking a brain cell from Nye. Everything from the color, reliability and all that other auto stuff in between, is green, as in eco-friendly!

Anyway, Bill hasn’t just inspired Subaru vehicles, he has also touched the brains of just about any student who was in school between the early 90s to today. One of his messages that he consistently embedded in heads was the importance of being green. It seems the makers of Subaru are not only fans of greenery, but also green eco-friendly automobiles!

  How does the XV Crosstrek Hybrid and the Plant-mobile compare? Let s put them head-to-head in the Green Thumb Test!

Fuel Economy / MPG

Plant-mobile: 30 MPG – We need plants for living, so we’re assuming cars do as well…?

XV Crosstrek Hybrid: 31 MPG – Good for both city and highway driving.  Basically covers everyone.

Overall Star Rating

XV Crosstrek Hybrid * * * * *


Plant-mobile: Assuming the seat belts weren’t made of vines, and the airbags weren’t filled of freshly mowed grass, perhaps safety isn’t this car’s forte.

XV Crosstrek Hybrid: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safey (IIHS) deems it a top safety pic, top rated in front, side, and rear impact test, as well as roof crush test.

Overall Green Thumb Rating:

Interior / Exterior

Plant-mobile: Grass exterior with plant-like influences found inside. What happens when the grass gets too long on the exterior though?

Subaru Electric Cars

XV Crosstrek Hybrid: With bright color palettes available (GREEN!), inside is sleek, sporty, and plenty of room for the little sprouts

The Plant-mobile served as a great starting point for “green” cars and now Subaru has taken the science dream and made it into an automotive reality. Although the XV Crosstrek isn’t made of grass, it takes the term hybrid to heart. With its incredible eco-friendly features, we’re sure Mr.

Bill Nye would give the Crosstrek a big green thumb up. After all, it does follow suite in relation to Bill’s highly outspoken thoughts on global warming .
