At the heart of this new green sport utility vehicle is a 2.0 liter four-cylinder BOXER type engine delivering 145 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a 13.5 horsepower electric motor integrated within a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). This setup allows the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid to start using only the electric motor and thus without consuming fuel.

Subaru has not indicated the average fuel economy for the vehicle, but did state that the average fuel economy in the city would be 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers.

Among the many features designed to improve the fuel consumption of the XV Crosstrek Hybrid, we note the presence of a stop-start system that shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stationary. Subaru engineers have also redesigned the suspension and chassis of the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid to give it more dynamic and sporty handling.

The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid differs from other XV Crosstrek models by offering exclusive exterior colors and uniquely-designed wheels. Inside, it offers heated seats, a sunroof, automatic climate control system and Bluetooth.
