2016 Subaru Crosstrek Special EditionSubaru of America, Inc. announced details for the 2016 Crosstrek Special Edition. This sweetie will be offered in Pure Red exterior finish and there will be only 1,500 units. We do expect further details at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show where it will debut.

As you might know, the Crosstrek combines neat five-door design, versatile chasis and in-demand multimedia technologies. And with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system incorporated, this vehicle surely deserves some more attention.

Based on the 2.0i Premium, the Special Edition proudly demonstrates its Pure Red exterior, matching foldable mirrors and integrated turn signals. The interior also has a lot to demonstrate: just look at the red stitching components, the leather-wrapped shift lever handle, steering wheel and door panels. They simply look amazing. Also, the interior features and soft red lightning onto the front floor area and storage space below the climate control. How cool is that?

Additional Equipment

The Special Edition will also grant buyers with All-Weather Package that includes heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer. Further goodies include Power Moonroof, Instrument Panel with color LCD display, Keyless Access, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert system, SUBARU STARLINK 6,2-inch multimedia system, smart phone integration systems and tons of infotainment systems.

Drivetrain system

Subaru offers its 2.0-liter BOXER power unit with aluminum cylinder heads and a total power output of 148hp (108kW) and 145 lb-ft of torque at 4,200rpm. What is also special about this engine is the long-stroke configuration that enhances torque across the engine speed range and the dual overhead camshaft configuration with Dual Active Valve Control System for both intake and exhaust valve for optimal torque distribution and delivery.

Furthermore, this guy is paired to Subaru's Continuously Variable Transmission that smoothly and continuously adapts to the performance and keeps the engine in the most efficient operating range in every given moment. This is a 6-speed manual system with paddle shifters that allows the driver to control the vehicle via six pre-set ratios. Sweet.
