Default New Crosstrek/XV

I looked at a few videos and like it ! I imagine that with some larger tires and a lift it could be cool.

What do you guys think ?

Weak engine, no low range, typical Subaru clearances, and awful approach angle=just as limited as a typical Subaru. A lift may suffice for most beaches and forest roads.

It would be great for most of the US, but here in the Southwest it would be just a show car since there is a lot more to 4x4 trails here than just sand, ruts, deep holes, and some mud.

I like the new Crosstrek. I just wish that Subaru would put the WRX powertrain in it.
