If you’re looking for a Subaru hybrid in the 2024 model year lineup, you’re out of luck. Subaru ceased production of the hybrid Crosstrek as it closed out the 2023 model year. So, what’s on the horizon for Subaru? Will they produce a new hybrid? What about the automaker’s plans for the EV market? And what’s the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek like?

Subaru discontinues the Crosstrek Hybrid after 2023

Subaru, a small Japanese automaker, ceased production of the hybrid Crosstrek to redirect development costs. Nikkei Asia, an Asian news outlet, said the plug-in hybrid (PHV) Corsstrek’s low sales volume prompted Subaru’s decision. In the U.S., Subaru sold only 2,600 2023 PHV Crosstreks, accounting for less than one percent of U.S. sales. 

Subaru has yet to announce plans for a 2024 hybrid model but look for new Subaru hybrids as soon as 2025. The automaker, in partnership with Toyota, is developing its hybrid and EV technology, intending to build a new EV factory in Gunma, Japan. For now, Subaru continues to focus on its gasoline-powered lineup and its single EV offering, the Subaru Solterra.

The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Premium features

The $26,145 Crosstrek Premium trim comes with the same amenities as the Base trim but adds or upgrades the following:

The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Limited features

  • Leather-trimmed upholstery
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and four-way manual front passenger seat
  • Blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Reverse automatic braking

The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness features

The top-trimmed 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness carries a base MSRP of $31,995. While the Wilderness trim drops some of the luxurious finishes of the Limited trim, its off-road focus adds its flair with features including:

    • StarTex water-repellent upholstery
    • 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels
    • 9.3 inches of ground clearance
    • 3,500-pound towing capacity
    • Hexagonal-style LED foglights
    • An EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway and 25 mpg city

    While you won’t find a hybrid Crosstrek in Subaru’s 2024 lineup, one of these five trims has something for nearly anyone. However, the Sport trim hits the sweet spot with the more powerful engine option, 18-inch wheels, and heated front seats while staying under $30K.
