New 2022 Subaru Crosstrek Turbo
2022 Subaru Crosstrek Turbo – Crosstrek and Impreza compact SUVs hatch and sedans could be beneficiaries. a Japanese website reported that the Japanese car manufacturer is working on three new turbocharged engines to be introduced next year.
The new engine will get the latest direct-injection technology that will improve fuel efficiency, which is why Subaru is overhauling its engine range. We already know about the Ascent 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that is likely to drive the next-generation Subaru WRX STI performance car.
2022 Subaru Crosstrek Turbo
When the fully refurbished Crosstrek arrived in 2018, it entered the scene with a rougher design than the majority of subcompact SUVs in the class. The sturdy front end design with bumper body cladding, chunky fenders, and high travel height gives Crosstrek a sturdy look.
The rear of the Crosstrek is more curved than the front end, while the rear bumper has similar rough elements. The 2022 model should maintain the same design as the current Crosstrek.
The next engine is Subaru’s latest 1.8-liter FA18 direct-injection Boxer engine that will power the new second-generation Levorg hatchback. This Sport wagon model is likely only sold in Japan, parts of Asia, Europe, and Australia.
The big news is that the third engine will be a newly developed 1.5-liter direct-injection Boxer engine that will replace the naturally envisioned 2.0-liter Boxer that currently powers the Crosstrek subcommittee SUV and the Impreza sedan and hatchback models.
