Why buy a hybrid when gas is cheap? To go faster, of course.
That’s what you’ll get if you buy the new plug-in hybrid version of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek hybrid – which gets to 60 1 full second sooner than the non-hybrid version.
It can also go abut 17 miles in electric car mode – and not burning any gas at all. But what probably matters more – so long as gas is cheap – is that this version of the Crosstrek can get to 60 in about 9 seconds instead of 10-plus.
Of course, speed is still a question of money – hybrids included.
The plug-in Crosstrek stickers for $34,995 – a hefty bump up from the $22,870 price of the base 2.0i trim.
But it’s no longer slow. Or at least, not slower than other in the class – which the non-hybrid Crosstrek is.
