Subaru Canada Introduces the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid this November


Subaru Canada Introduces the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid this November


    --  Subaru has produced the lowest-emissions and most
        fuel-efficient full-time AWD hybrid crossover in North America.
    --  New XV Crosstrek Hybrid is quieter, quicker and more
        fuel-efficient.
    --  Subaru's new hybrid crossover is built in a zero-landfill
        plant.

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI), is pleased 
to announce that the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid will be arriving in the 
Canadian marketplace by the end of November. Priced at $29,995, the Subaru XV 
Crosstrek Hybrid aims to bring Canadians a more fuel-efficient and 
environmentally friendly Subaru - plus more performance and comfort.

New Subaru Hybrid Drive System

Based on the popular XV Crosstrek crossover introduced for 2013, the new XV 
Crosstrek Hybrid offers the capability and versatility of the gasoline-powered 
version plus the added environmental benefits of a hybrid powertrain - 
including higher fuel efficiency - to broaden the vehicle's appeal. Key to 
this approach is that the XV Crosstrek Hybrid shares the gasoline model's 
Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive and chassis capability. With the 
XV Crosstrek Hybrid, Subaru re-engineered the chassis and suspension, 
resulting in improved handling, steering and ride. The XV Crosstrek Hybrid 
also uses the same 148-horsepower 2.0-litre 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine as 
the rest of the lineup, but integrates an exclusive Lineartronic CVT 
(continuously variable transmission) that attaches to a 13.5-horsepower 
electric motor within its symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system to 
create the new Subaru Hybrid Drive system. As a result, the Subaru XV 
Crosstrek Hybrid offers enhanced engine response and fuel economy.

Unparalleled Efficiency

Already acclaimed as the most fuel-efficient full-time All-Wheel Drive 
crossover in North America, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid achieves 
manufacturer-estimated fuel economy ratings of 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres 
in the city, which also makes it Subaru's most fuel-efficient vehicle. 
Contributing to its fuel-efficient status is the XV Crosstrek Hybrid's new 
automatic start/stop system, which enables the engine to stop when the vehicle 
is at rest with the brake pedal activated; the engine reactivates when the 
brakes are released. Subaru's hybrid crossover also goes the distance with 
fewer resources, operating on battery power alone and emitting zero emissions.

Environmental Sensitivity

The all-new Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid was born a leader in efficiency and 
environmental sensitivity. Like all Subaru vehicles, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid 
is built in a zero-landfill plant in Gunma, Japan. Since every Subaru XV 
Crosstrek Hybrid has an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle 
(AT-PZEV) rating, it's also the lowest-emissions All-Wheel Drive hybrid 
crossover in North America.

Smart Design, Inside and Out

The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers smart design features on the 
outside with comfort and convenience inside. In terms of exterior features, 
the XV Crosstrek Hybrid offers elements exclusive to this trim level such as 
silver raised-profile roof rails and lightweight, aerodynamic aluminum alloy 
wheels. On the inside, comfort and convenience features include automatic 
climate control, heated front seats, a power sunroof and steering 
wheel-integrated Bluetooth and audio controls, while keyless access and 
push-button start is unique to this trim level.
