- Wins segment for second consecutive year

Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek has won “Best Compact SUV/Crossover” in Kelley Blue Book’s annual 5-Year Cost to Own Awards.

Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new and used vehicle valuation and information, created the 5-Year Cost to Own Awards to help shoppers make more informed new-car buying decisions by breaking down typical ownership cost details and naming the brands and models with the lowest projected five-year total. This includes out-of-pocket expenses like fuel, insurance and vehicle deprecation. Kelley Blue Book calculates total ownership costs for new vehicles by applying a sophisticated valuation methodology along with critical financial data from third-party providers. This is the second consecutive year that Crosstrek has received this award.

"We are very proud Crosstrek won the 2018 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award in its category," said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “This recognition underscores our commitment to providing trusted, top-quality vehicles to our customers, both on the day of purchase and for years to come.”

The all-new 2018 Crosstrek combines a bold new design with a new and highly capable chassis for versatility in both off-road and city driving with a starting price of $21,795.
