90 MPGe with Subaru StarDrive Technology
The Crosstrek Hybrid uses Subaru StarDrive Technology to combine the efficiency of a plug-in electric vehicle for city commuting with the long-range capability of a SUBARU BOXER gasoline engine for road trips without limits. The gas engine charges the electric battery even if you can’t plug in, so there’s no worry about running out of electric power. The Crosstrek Hybrid provides up to 90 MPGe and up to 480 miles of total vehicle range, all with the confidence of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
All of the power. All of the efficiency. All of the confidence.
Subaru StarDrive Technology is smartly designed to give you ultimate freedom. Simply drive how you want and this advanced system automatically optimizes power, torque, and fuel efficiency to deliver not only improved acceleration but up to 90 MPGe. Take on any adventure and leave worries behind.
The system will run on a combination of electric and gas power. To maximize efficiency, the Crosstrek Hybrid automatically draws power from the hybrid battery first. The battery also recharges by harnessing kinetic energy, such as when you’re coasting downhill or whenever you take your foot off the throttle. The system can also draw more power from the gas engine when you need it. It constantly works to maximize power and efficiency so you don’t have to worry about either.
The Crosstrek Hybrid will automatically drive in all-electric mode as much as possible, saving you fuel costs by achieving up to 90 MPGe while still delivering generous off-the-line power. When the weather turns, only Subaru gives you the confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
When you want to maintain the battery’s charge level, Battery Save Mode directs the gas engine to provide most of the power while keeping the battery level as constant as possible. This is useful when you’re taking a longer trip and plan to do more electric driving later.
Charging on the Go
The Crosstrek Hybrid battery automatically recharges while you’re on the road. When the battery gets low, the gas engine will automatically start and begin to recharge. You can also charge the battery by driving in Battery Charge Mode, which directs the gas engine to charge the battery at all times, even when the vehicle is stopped – gaining up to 33% of battery capacity in 30 minutes of driving.
You can charge the Crosstrek Hybrid at home using the included charger or anywhere with a standard outlet. When plugged into a 120V household outlet (Level 1), the Crosstrek Hybrid can take approximately five hours to completely charge a fully depleted battery. When using a 240V outlet (Level 2), a full charge only takes approximately two hours. Most commercial charging stations use the 240V charging capability, enabling faster charge times for your Crosstrek Hybrid.
Charge on the Go at Over 46,000 Charging Stations
Wherever your Crosstrek Hybrid takes you, chances are you’ll be close to one of over 46,000 public Level 2 charging stations across the country through EVgo and EVgo roaming partners. EVgo is the preferred charging partner of Subaru and the first public EV fast-charging network in the U.S. to be powered by 100% renewable energy.
A Value That Lasts
The Crosstrek Hybrid is a value that gets better with every mile – not just because it’s a hybrid, but because it’s a Subaru. 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today, and Subaru is Kelley Blue Book’s Most Trusted Brand for eight years running, according to Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. Also, the Subaru Crosstrek has the Best Resale Value in its class for three years running, according to Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com.
Better Commuting with Restricted Lane Access
The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid is eligible for High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane access in select states, including California, Maryland, and New York, so your commute can be even more efficient and enjoyable.
State and local financial incentives, tax credits, and discounts may be available based on your location and employer.
Standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology
The 2023 Crosstrek Hybrid features standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which acts like an extra set of eyes on the road and, if need be, an extra foot on the brake when you drive. EyeSight includes a number of advanced active safety systems to protect you and your family on every drive.
Automatic Pre-Collision Braking helps you avoid or reduce frontal impacts by alerting you and applying full braking force in emergency situations. Pre-Collision Throttle Management can reduce the power from the engine to help minimize the possible impact force and frontal impact damage.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control adds extra safety and convenience on every trip. Just choose the distance you want to keep from the car in front of you and it can take some of the stress out of everyday driving by helping with braking and throttle control while maintaining a safe distance ahead.
All-Around Awareness Technologies
The 2023 Crosstrek Hybrid features an entire suite of safety technologies to help protect you and your passengers. The standard Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator on the side mirror if it senses a vehicle in your blind spots. Standard Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up and a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances visibility when reversing. With standard Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.
SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security
STARLINK Safety and Security offers an array of connected services to help keep you and your Crosstrek Hybrid safe whether you're in your vehicle, at your computer, or on your smartphone. Advanced Automatic Collision Notification will alert an operator in the event of an accident. SOS Emergency Assistance can get you roadside help at the push of a button. Crosstrek Hybrid includes the STARLINK Security Plus package for 10 years. And there are even more features for added convenience and peace of mind, including Remote Services, Climate Control, Vehicle Alerts, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. Also included is STARLINK Concierge service for personal assistance with tasks like navigation, restaurant reservations, and scheduling service appointments.
Stylish, Spacious, and Modern
The smartly designed 2023 Crosstrek Hybrid provides a surprisingly spacious interior – with up to 100.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. That’s more passenger space than the Toyota RAV4 Prime, Mini Cooper SE Countryman ALL4, or Lexus UX Hybrid. Inside, you’ll find a stylish, modern cabin with high-contrast navy and gray leather seats with blue stitching, standard heated front seats, and an available heated steering wheel.
Flexible Cargo Area and 60/40-Split Fold-Down Rear Seats
There’s always room for more fun in the Crosstrek Hybrid. A wide rear gate opening – with convenient built-in cargo area light – makes bigger gear easier to load. With 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks, you can fit three in the back with both rear seatbacks up or fold a seat down for extra cargo space.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a plug-in hybrid vehicle?
A plug-in hybrid vehicle uses both an electric motor and gas-powered engine to optimize fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. The battery is large enough to enable electric-only operation, allowing the vehicle to be powered completely by its electric engine over limited range and can be charged at home or a charging station as well as by its gas-powered engine.
How can I charge the Crosstrek Hybrid and how do I find the closest charging station?
Owners can charge their vehicle at home or anywhere there’s a 120V outlet using the included Level 1 charging cable – or at any charging station with a 240V/Level 2 charger. With the Charge Finder app, drivers are able to locate thousands of charging stations throughout the country on their STARLINK Multimedia screen.
Do I need to plug in the Hybrid before I drive it?
The Crosstrek Hybrid will run even if it’s not charged, as it can be driven with gasoline by operating on the gas-powered SUBARU BOXER engine. However, in order to maximize fuel efficiency, it’s recommended to charge the vehicle.
Do I need gas in the tank?
Yes. The Crosstrek Hybrid always requires gas as the vehicle will use the gas engine for power when certain conditions are met.
What is the expected driving range?
