Subaru of America announces 2017 Subaru Crosstrek

In a press release dated September 22, 2016 Subaru of America President & COO Thomas Doll announced we can start taking orders for 2017 Crosstreks.  There will be another Crosstrek Special Edition this year in the Pure Red (like last year), but for the most part things aren’t going to change.  The Crosstrek was introduced in 2013 model year and sales have grown considerably every years.  In 2016 at our store, the Crosstrek was one of the “hard to get” models thanks to it’s ever growing popularity.


Subaru announced a meager $100 price increase on the Premium and Limited models over last year’s edition.  The Crosstrek Hybrid and Hybrid Touring models have been discontinued.  If you’re interested in the 2017 Crosstrek Special Edition, it’ will be $200 more than last year’s model and since you asked “What makes it special?”… Here you go:

EdCarPage is very happy that Subaru decided to keep what was working so well as far as the design and style of the Crosstrek.  Many of my customers were worried when buying their 2016 that things might change a lot since cars often go in four year cycles.  To quote Subaru President and COO Thomas Doll, “For 2017 model year, we have taken the philosophy of keeping the product line largely intact given its overwhelming market acceptance.”  We agree.
