Since it’s introduction to the market, the Subaru Impreza Outback has long been Subaru’s best selling crossover. However, with the ‘Outback’ badge aging, Subaru is looking to release the new latest-and-greatest crossover.
Enter, the 2013 Subaru Crosstrek. Subaru confirmed earlier this month that the successor to the Impreza Outback Sport. Rather than being based on the Impreza chassis, this new model will be based on the new Subaru XV. The Crosstrek will also receive additional ground clearance (8.6 inches in fact), and will get off-road body cladding, much like the current generation of Outback.
Subaru is expecting great sales number from the new Crosstrek, projecting 300,00 annual sales in the United States (almost doubling Outback sales of five years ago).
We’re expecting great things out of this new model. Look for the new Crosstrek in 2012 at Rimrock Subaru in Billings, Montana.
