Unveiling the 2025 Subaru Crosstrek in Albuquerque NM: A Compact SUV Built for Adventure

Subaru has long been known for manufacturing light-duty off-road-oriented SUVs, and the compact 2025 Subaru Crosstrek in Albuquerque, NM is one of several exceptional options. Whether you call it a small SUV or a big hatchback, the Crosstrek is an affordable, adventure-ready vehicle that will outshine most other models in its class when tackling the rugged terrain of New Mexico.

After a complete redesign for the 2024 model, we expect the 2025 Crosstrek to arrive as a carryover with few changes. The Wilderness trim was introduced in 2024 and is expected to return, and there is speculation about a hybrid model returning in 2025. But if you need more room than this compact provides, the Outback and Forester offer similar capabilities in a larger package. 

Exterior Appearance

The Subaru Crosstrek has everything you need in an affordable crossover, from a spacious cabin to excellent ground clearance. It also brings a redesigned look that guarantees to impress. 

The 2025 Crosstrek brings fresher styling with an updated front end, including a revised bumper, grille, and black air intakes, exuding the character and charm exclusive to Subaru. It also received upgraded underpinnings and updated technology, as well. Sitting higher than its rivals with a ride height of 8.7 inches, the Crosstrek is perfect for driving on various non-paved surfaces. 

Power and Performance

Two engine options are offered in the Crosstrek: a 2.0-liter BOXER flat-four and a more robust 2.5-liter mill. The 2.0-liter engine is ideal for commuters and city driving and is available in the entry-level Base and Premium versions. Providing 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, this BOXER® may not be the fastest, but can quickly get you up to speed to merge into traffic while returning excellent fuel economy at 34/27 mpg highway/city.

The Sport, Limited, and Wilderness trims boast a 2.5-liter engine with an output of 182 hp and 178 lb-ft. As you would expect, this engine gives a more spirited performance, especially on longer trips. Several suspension tweaks make the new Crosstrek more athletic than the previous generation, providing more responsive steering, minimal body roll, and less road noise. And thanks to Subaru’s famous Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, it isn’t afraid to get off the beaten path!
