The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced that the 2013 XV Crosstrek will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek is based on the same platform as the Impreza and it’s also coming, just like all the company’s models except the BRZ sports car, with the automaker’s symmetrical all-wheel drive system which is offering traction in just about any weather condition. The 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek is also fitted with the four-wheel independent suspension system which has been raised compared to the Impreza models, offering the vehicle the ability to “ride” off-road too.

The 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek will be offered in two trim levels, the Premium and the Limited, and the entry-level Premium will be fitted with Bluetooth phone integration, audio streaming, power doors, windows and locks, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, security system, USB / auxiliary connectivity and iPod control. On the Limited version, the XV Crosstrek will come with additional heated mirrors, heated front seats and windshield wiper de-icer, while both trims can be ordered with options like the power moonroof and a 6.1-inch touch screen display for the rear view camera and navigation system. The vehicle will hit the United States dealers this autumn.
