NEWS, UPDATES AND WHAT'S NEW FOR THE 2018 SUBARU CROSSTREK

New starting  9/7/17  Popular Package #4 (CS5).  Auto dimming rear view mirror with compass and Homelink, Auto dimming outside mirrors with approach safety light, rear bumper cover, splash guards, rear seatback protector, all weather rubber floor mats.  $1054

9/5
new starting late July, 2017 Crosstrek 17" alloy wheel Sport Package (CS3). includes 17" STI black multi-spoke alloys, STI CVT shift knob, and STI rear roof spoiler.

8/21/17  Crosstrek brochures are now at dealers

8/8/17
Overall, the 2018s are an excellent upgrade.
They are much smoother and quieter than the 17s


8/3 2018 Crosstreks now arriving at dealers.


7/1/17 2018 Crosstrek finance rates available even though no cars have arrived. Rates are 2.9%x60/63 months, on approval of credit

6/15/17 2018 Crosstreks can now be ordered, and we have the features, options and prices.
Many orders placed right now will arrive in August or maybe late July.
The model line continue as 2.0i base, Premium, and Limited.
New for 2018 is a 2.0i base model with the CVT transmission.


5/22/17  2017 Outback, Crosstrek and Legacy factory orders end tomorrow 5/23 at 9pm EST.

That's very little advance notice.
If you want a specially equipped 2017 Outback, Crosstrek or Legacy, please order today or tomorrow because after that its too late.
This also means the 2017 model sell-down is right now for best supply and price.
Dealers have a lot of inventory, especially Outbacks and that means they're motivated sellers.
2018 orders will start in late June, with a delivery ETA perhaps of late July but realistically August.
The 2018 Outback, Crosstrek, and Legacy are all getting some excellent upgrades.
The Crosstrek will be all new,  a Crosstrek version of the 17 Impreza, and the Outback and Legacy are getting a new front grill, headlights, interior trim and other minor upgrades but the big news is the improved audio systems with Android Auto and Apple Carplay!
If those features are important, then you'll want to wait for the 18s.
No more 2018 details, prices, or specs have been announced yet but they will be available once the orders start. 
Subaru will offer financing as the 18s arrive but the rates probably won't be as low as what the 17s have, at least at first, and depending on how many 17s are still on lots.


4/25/17 2018 Crosstrek mini-booklets from the NY Auto show arriving at dealers, limited quantity



4/4/17 2018 Crosstrek teases

Subaru released some early teaser info on the 18 Crosstrek that will be shown at the NY Auto show on 4/14 and then go on sale later this summer (Sept?).
There will be a lot more information soon but here are some of the details

Its going to be a good upgrade .... more power, better ride and handling due to the all new and much stiffer platform and slightly larger overall size,  Active torque vectoring will improve cornering, Xmode will improve downhill slick road driving, better audio with Android Auto and Carplay, Eyesight gets steering responsive headlights, available Reverse auto brake with back-up beeper (the beeper is the important part), Rear view camera gets visual steering lines to aid backing up, the Tire pressure monitoring will tell you which tire is low, and the Limited finally gets a power driver's seat (but its only 6 way which means no lumbar support).

Not all cars will get all the features but overall it all looks good!
The details will tell the full story but can Subaru keep the price down?

upgraded 2.0L with direct injection and 152hp, up from 148hp
upgraded transmissions- either a 6 speed manual which replaces the 5 spd,  or a CVT with Paddle Shifters with 7 gear-settings which replaces 6 gear-settings
Gas tank now larger at 16.6 US gallons (was 15.9)
Size:
Wheelbase is now 104.9" which 1.2" longer. A longer wheelbase has better ride and handling.
Length and width- its .6" longer and .9" wider for slightly more interior room and better ride and handling.
Models
> 2.0i base 6 speed manual
6.5" am/fm/bluetooth audio with Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity
Power windows with auto up/down driver and front passenger windows.
Tilt-telescoping steering wheel with audio and cell bluetooth controls

Optional packages... Moonroof,  Eyesight, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert  driver safety
> 2.0i Limited with CVT with Paddle Shifters and Xmode
ADDS
Power driver's seat. (but I'm disappointed that its only a 6 way seat which means no lumbar support!)
LED headlights and LED daytime running lights
8" audio with CD player, Apple Carplay, Android Auto connectivity
Power driver's seat, 6 way
18" machined alloy wheels
Leather trimmed interior

3/7/18 We have to wait until April for details on the US spec 2018 Crosstrek
The European version of the 2018 Crosstrek is called by its original name, the XV, and is at the Geneva Auto Show starting today. There will be some differences between the European and US versions and we'll have to wait for the NY International Auto Show (NAIS) April 14 - Apr 23 for details on our model.
The 18 Crosstrek is a raised up version of the Impreza so there a number of similarities and, like the Impreza, is based on the new global platform. 
Here are other new features on the European one
New colors... the prototype on display in Geneva is orange, but will we see that here?
An electric parking with the CVT
Tighter steering ratio 13:1 vs current 14:1
Active torque vectoring on some models
XMode electronic downhill descent control on CVT models

*************************************

7/5/17
2018 model good and bad impressions

Good
16.6 gallon gas tank (replaces 15.9)
Stablex brand suspension upgrade
X-mode downhill descent on all CVT models
Ivory cloth and leather gone (replaced by gray)
Manual transmission on 2.0i and Premium now a 6 speed (was 5)
Active torque Vectoring- controls inside wheel spin when cornering
Power off-delay for both audio system and power windows (off when door opened)
2.0i base model now available with either black or gray cloth (previously black only)
Audio system added Android Auto and Apple Carplay but deleted the CD player and FM HD radio on the 2.0i and Premium models. Comments about this, miss the CD player? Contact Subaru at 800 782-2783 or on Facebook
2.0i base model now available with CVT but it's the budget version with only Drive and Low modes (no Paddle Shifters).
CVT transmission on Premium and Limited Paddle Shifters now with 7 settings (was 6) for full transmission control especially important in snow and mountain road driving, freeway passing etc

Excellent Limited upgrades... power drivers seat (but without lumbar support!), LED and Steering Responsive headlights, and TPMS individual wheel tire pressure display. It also gets 18" wheels (not good).

Bad
No rain sensing front wipers
2.0 base model dropped the fog lights
2.0i and Premium audio systems go budget mode and deleted the CD player and FM HD player. How much money can that save Subaru?!?! Comments about this, do you miss the CD player? Please contact Subaru at 800 782-2783 or on Facebook
Limited model finally gets a power drivers seat, but it doesn't get any lumbar support. How much money can that save Subaru !?!? 
The sunvisors are too small for the larger windshield, and there really needs to be 4 sunvisors...  a second sunvisor that flips down when the main is off to the side.

18" wheels are standard on Limiteds. I know that's the style, the 'look', and maybe they handle (slightly) better on the race track, but 18" tires are spendy, the wheels can get curbed, and 18" wheels tend to not be as good on rugged roads or in deep snow as a smaller (17") wheel with a larger (taller) tire.

EDR, Event Data Recorder information.
In the event of an impact, the EDR will freeze data including how various systems were operating, for example if seatbelts were buckled, if the gas or brake pedals were pressed, and vehicle speed. No personal data is stored. To read data, special equipment is required. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer (Subaru), other parties such as law enforcement that have the equipment can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or EDR.  Existing laws generally provide that information in an EDR is confidential and is the property of the owner of the motor vehicle. Information is accessed through the airbag system using a Subaru service computer.


all Crosstreks have, con't

2018 Crosstrek
Eyesight, Blind Spot Detection. Rear Cross Traffic Alert
subject to change, correction
EYESIGHT

EYESIGHT

Optional on Premium with Option Package #13, #14,  and on Limited with Option Package #22 and #23

This is the 4th year for Eyesight on the Crosstrek.
It was new on the 2015 Crosstrek


Its the 3rd generation Eyesight with color cameras (note- 1st gen Eyesight was never offered in the US).

It includes
new for 2018 Lane Keep Assist.
new for 2018 Reverse Auto Brake (RAB), on Limited only with optional Eyesight
new for 2018 High Beam Assist (HBA), on Limited only with optional Eyesight
Steering responsive fog lights (Premium only)
Active cruise control,
Lane departure warning,
Pre-collision warning
Pre-collision braking
Lead Vehicle Start Alert

> new for 2018  Lane Keep Assist.  Gently moves the vehicle back into its lane when it unintentionally drifts across a lane marker (stripe). The driver must turn this on for it to work. Lane Keep works at around 37 mph or greater for freeway driving etc, and is only for drifting out of your lane and not for intentionally steering. Its not self driving or for going around curve in the road. Note- it stays on when the car is turned off and restarted so it can be left on
>
new for 2018 Reverse Auto Brake (RAB), on Limited with optional Eyesight only. Works at very low speeds, in reverse only. 4 sonar sensors in the rear bumper detect, and beep when an object gets close enough to be detected, at around 2 feet or less. It will beep more rapidly as the car moves closer to the object, and will stop the car from hitting the object as long as its at -very- low speed. The main benefit it the beeping. The auto brake function can be disabled when parking in titgh spaces. Use the control buttons in the lower left of the steering wheel to select and activate or disable various functions as displayed in the center of the gauges.
> new for 2018 High Beam Assist (HBA), on Limited with optional Eyesight only. Mostly for dark or rural, not urban, driving. When the headlights are on the 'Auto' dusk-to-dawn setting and you turn on the high beams, the High Beam Assist controls the high beams, turning them on or off depending on ambient light and on-coming traffic. Uses the eyesight cameras to detect the amount of outside light. There are no driver controllable settings (ie to set the distance at which it detects on-coming lights etc)
> Steering responsive fog lights (new for 2018, on Premium only. Previously on Limiteds as well but the 2018 Limited now has steering responsive headlights)  uses steering wheel position to briefly turn on the left or right fog light to illuminate a corner when the steering wheel is turned. Headlights in 'auto' setting and fog lights off for the system to work.
> Active Cruise Control combines the benefits of cruise control with active monitoring of the road ahead. It will pace with (speed up and slow down) the vehicle ahead at a distance from that car you set. It issues warnings and activates automatic braking when needed. Adaptive Cruise Control can regulate vehicle speed in order to keep a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead. It does not replace conventional cruise control, which can still be used when desired.
> Pre-Collision Braking can recognize an impending collision, alert the driver and automatically apply the brakes to help avoid a collision or minimize the impact when a collision is inevitable.
> Pre-Collision Brake Assist-  If Eyesight recognizes an impending collision and the driver is applying the brakes but not with enough force, Pre-Collision Brake Assist automatically applies up to full braking pressure in order to try to shorten braking distances.
> Pre-Collision Throttle Management is designed to help prevent drivers from accelerating into a stopped vehicle or other obstacle in front of them. It warns the driver and reduces engine power until he or she applies the brakes to avoid an impact.
> Lead Vehicle Start Alert is a helpful Eyesight feature that
beeps when the car remains stopped with the driver's foot on the brake after a vehicle in front has started to move and gone more than 10 feet
> Lane Departure Warning alerts drivers when they unintentionally move out of their travel lane. It takes no corrective vehicle action other than issuing visual and audible warnings. Works over app 30mph. It doesn't work if the turn signal is used, steering wheel is turned, brake or gas pedal is pressed, all indicating the driver is in control

> Lane Sway Warning acts in a similar way, detecting unusual back and forth vehicle movement within the lane of travel. Lane Sway Warning only operates at speeds over 38 mph.

Eyesight cars have three windshield washer squirters, with the 3rd one attached to the right side wiper arm so it to sprays and cleans in front of the cameras.
The camera’s field of view is about 35 degrees horizontally from the center of the windshield.
The camera’s field of vision extends up to about 260 feet in front of the vehicle, but objects very close to the vehicle may not be detected
EyeSight works to recognize obstacles up to about a 30-mph (or less) speed differential. Essentially, EyeSight needs time to recognize an object or potential obstacle. If the speed difference between the EyeSight vehicle and the object is greater than up to 30 mph, the object will likely not be detected.

Notes
Eyesight uses two forward facing color cameras to see the road ahead, and only works when they can 'see'. Don't block the camera's views, put anything reflective on the dash, hang anything from the rear view mirror, or clean the dash so that it's shiny. Replace the windshield wipers as necessary.
The Eyesight cameras will turn off if the windshield fogs up or if they can't see for any reason.

Do not touch or try to clean the EyeSight camera lenses. It is imperative that extra precaution be used when cleaning the inside of the windshield, because over-spray from cleaners may impair or even damage the cameras’ lenses, which is not a warranty issue.

Blind Spot Detection and Rear Vehicle Detection System

Blind Spot Detection and Rear Vehicle Detection System (rear cross traffic alert)
was new on the 2016 model

standard on all Limiteds
and included on Premium with Option Pkgs #12, #13, #14

**************************************************************

package includes
> new for 2018 the warning symbol has been moved to the mirror housing, and is
larger, brighter and more visible.
> Blind Spot Detection (BSD) (detects a vehicle alongside and slightly to the rear of you),
> Lane Change Assist (warns of vehicles approaching in the next lane),
> Rear Cross Traffic Alert (warns of vehicles approaching when you're backing out of a parking spot).

The Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD) system uses two radar units, each mounted underneath the rear bumper skin immediately below the rear taillights and
above a typical bumper impact line to help avoid damage in a rear fender bender.

The radar units send out signals to detect vehicles behind and to each side of the Subaru vehicle, especially those vehicles that might not be visible in the rearview mirrors.

Lane Change Assist (LCA) looks for vehicles farther back in an adjacent lane – about 220 feet behind the Subaru vehicle. If the vehicle detected is approaching quickly – at a speed that could bring it alongside the Subaru vehicle within a few seconds – Lane Change Assist will illuminate a warning icon in the exterior mirror on that side. If the driver signals a lane change, the warning icon in the mirror will flash rapidly.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD) is
standard on Limiteds, optional on Premiums. It will illuminate a warning icon in the exterior mirror when it detects a vehicle alongside and behind the Subaru vehicle in an area of about 22 feet x 11 feet. If the driver signals a lane change to that side, the warning icon in the mirror will flash.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses the same radars and sensors to help detect vehicles that cannot be seen by the driver as they approach from either side. This is especially helpful when reversing from between two larger vehicles. The driver is alerted by a flashing icon in the appropriate exterior mirror as well as an audible beep beep alert

All Wheel Drive
all models have full time, all wheel, all speed, All Wheel Drive with VDC (vehicle dynamics control) electronic stability control with TCS (traction control system).
 

Manual transmission models have "Continuous" all wheel drive with 50/50 front/back power split, mechanically controlled. 
CVT transmission models use "Active" all wheel drive, electronically controlled front/back power split. Mostly front wheel drive under normal driving conditions.
new for 2018 Active Torque Vectoring
all models
Active torque vectoring uses the brake and engine power to help control handling when cornering.
It monitors steering angle, accelerator pedal, lateral g-force and yaw.
It's designed to detect understeer and apply brake pressure to the inside cornering front wheel, helping keep the vehicle on the driver's intended cornering path.
new for 2018  X-mode with hill descent control
on CVT only
CVT models only
Driver must turn it on when approaching or going down a hill at very low speed.

X-mode with hill descent control works on slippery surfaces
Hill descent control uses all functions to sense and then control wheel spin and vehicle speed when going down a steep hill.
It controls engine power, transmission ratio ('gear'), sensitivity of the VDC (vehicle dynamics control and traction control) to help reduce wheel spin and keep the car from going faster and faster, thus allowing the driver to maintain control

Note: if the driver is pressing the gas pedal, it will override X-mode and the car will accelerate, and X-mode will turn off at app 25mph
Emissions
PZEV
PZEV
What is PZEV, a brief summary  Partial Zero Emission Vehicle
The EPA says a PZEV is clean running gas engine car based on emissions testing for carbon-containing compounds, oxides of nitrogen, particulate matter, and other tailpipe nastiness.
1. A charcoal canister catches unburned gas left in the engine when it's turned off so it doesn't just evaporate. 
2. Fuel injectors that close tighter when they're not in use.
3. A finer mesh in the catalytic converter, as well as optimized placement of its precious metal.
4.  The engine's electronic brain is tuned to run the hot at start up to help the catalytic converter heat up so it can start doing its job faster.

WHAT IS HD RADIO
new for 2018 only on Limited models
Gone Previously on all models. Please contact Subaru at 800- 782-2783 or on Facebook to leave comments

FM HD radio is free. There's no charge
Its a Digital radio signal with improved clarity and larger selection of stations than standard FM.
The ‘HD’ in ‘HD Radio’ is part of iBiquity Digital’s brand name for its digital AM and FM radio technology.
It does not mean either 'hybrid digital' or 'high definition'.
Again, HD Radio broadcasting is free, there are no fees.
You can get digital AM and FM stations, including HD2 and HD3 multicast channels.
HD is your favorite normal local AM and FM stations broadcasting digitally, producing improved clean sound. 
Radio station subchannels give you more selection.
The service includes iTunes Tagging. iTunes Tagging lets you capture information about a song on the radio and store it on your iPod by pushing the "Tag" button on the HD Radio receiver. When your iPod is connected to iTunes, a list of tagged songs will appear which can be purchased.
HD radio website, check stations etc

Ordering a car.
What if the dealer doesn't have what I want?

Dealers get a limited number of cars each month.
They have an Incoming report and you can reserve (put your name on) one of the incoming cars.
As a result, many incoming cars will be sold before they arrive.
That means a factory special order might be the way to get the exact car and features you want.
Factory orders will be filled from your dealer's normal allocation of Crosstreks.
Subaru doesn't like cancelled special orders, so please be sure you want and will be able to complete the transaction
When first ordered, the ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) will probably be a general 'month of...' date that is around 2 months out from the order date.
The order will then be filled as available but it will probably be in the 1 1/5-2 month window.
Your dealer can also try to locate or find a suitable car for you at another dealer who is willing to swap Crosstreks.
Be patient, the dealer will want you get your car as quickly as possible.
