The uniqueness of the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid in the crossover segment comes from its combination of chic dynamic style, all-purpose versatility and go-anywhere practicality with state-of-the-art Subaru safety.
At the heart of the Crosstrek’s safety ensemble is Enhanced EyeSight 4.0, the latest and safest version of Subaru’s signature safety system, featuring an additional wide-angle monocular camera integrated with the stereo cameras to assist the driver by looking out even more effectively for pedestrians, two-wheelers and other potential obstacles in the path of the vehicle.
“The all-new Subaru Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid more than fulfills the demands of the contemporary Singapore driver -- always on-the-go, seeking new experiences, living life to the fullest.
This awe-inspiring, spacious, versatile, and stylish crossover is packed with the latest advanced safety features that empower resourceful and independent Singapore drivers to crossover to electrifying excitement with its responsive handling, without compromising on Subaru’s iconic safety. A first for Subaru in Singapore, this Crosstrek comes equipped with Subaru’s innovative Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 – with its trio of cameras, making it a trendsetter in its segment, outclassing its competition in terms of safety, space, refinement of cabin quality and technology!
More than that, with the new and improved e-BOXER Hybrid electric motor, this Crosstrek is the only Boxer engine vehicle with hybrid motor assist and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive in its segment. It delivers improved fuel efficiency, faster acceleration and a level of refinement unheard of in this category. I believe that nothing is impossible with all-new Subaru Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid!” said Mr. Glenn Tan, Deputy Chairman and Managing Director of Tan Chong International Limited.
Getting behind the wheel of the Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid is exciting because you can feel the dynamic, agile personality of this Subaru. An absolute dream to drive – the transition between the Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid’s electric motor to engine and vice versa, as well as when the two are working together, is perfectly seamless and smooth (to the point where the driver and passengers cannot distinguish between when either are in operation!)
Subaru’s e-BOXER hybrid system harnesses its electric motor in tandem with the e-BOXER engine to simultaneously and seamlessly provide drivers with the natural feeling of acceleration and deceleration. All this while improving the Crosstrek’s fuel economy!
Notably, Subaru e-BOXER Hybrid stands out as the only Boxer engine vehicle with hybrid motor assist in its segment. It inherits the advantageous performance of an engine with a low centre of gravity with the poise and efficiency of the proven Subaru’s renowned go-anywhere SAWD system.
The all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid breaks free from the mundane with an aggressive design that blends sleek and classy lines into one powerful-looking package that appeals to the independent and busy Singapore car owner who demand a real driver’s car!
The Subaru design team describes the Crosstrek as a playful design that is fun just to look at. Best of all, like a fashionista with a true talent for high fashion, solid and dynamic styling principles back up the Crosstrek exterior’s playfulness, while sensible functionality accompanies the chic metallic eye-candy.
The car is as pumped up as it looks, with a fierce face, strikingly bold front grille bar and flared fenders. The front wheels have been spaced further apart for better stability while also projecting a buffed-up stylish image. From any angle, the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid looks set to take on any challenge with its toughened appearance and sharper body lines, whether it’s on a roadway or a fashion runway.
This crossover is a real head-turner offering bold colour choices, three of which are exclusive to the Crosstrek – Oasis Blue, Offshore Blue Metallic and Sun Blaze Pearl. The all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid is also available in two more shades of blue (Sapphire Blue Pearl and Horizon Blue Pearl), Pure Red, Magnetite Grey Metallic and the classic paint jobs of Crystal Black Silica, Crystal White Pearl and Ice Silver Metallic.
Matching your personality, or maybe your outfit of the day (OOTD), is so easy and funky with the Crosstrek’s attractive 10-colour palette.
The claddings on the bumpers, fenders and side sills not only look tough, but they also protect the bodywork from damage when the going gets tough. Built on Subaru Global Platform, the tough Crosstrek chassis gets going with confidence, regardless of road and weather conditions, thanks to its class-leading ground clearance of 220mm.
Front and rear air outlets add to the aggressive look and are also designed to prevent body sway by moving unwanted turbulence further away from the body. This makes the ride even more stable and thus reduces fatigue for all occupants in the car, making road trips up Malaysia, even Thailand, a breeze.
With its excellent torque balance, power can be firmly distributed to all four wheels thanks to Symmetrical AWD, this new Crosstrek can easily exhibit high performance across a wide range of road surfaces and conditions. Coupled with its refined and spacious cabin, this Crosstrek is well-suited for longer rides outdoors with family and friends!
The Crosstrek’s front end does not just look aggressive and eager to play rough, but it is also cutting-edge, with LED Steering Responsive Headlights, High Beam Assist and, in a first for Subaru, LED cornering lamps which illuminate the diagonal front edges of the area ahead of the Crosstrek when it is turning at below 35 km/h. This is the car’s brilliant way of putting the spotlight on safer driving at night and in dark carparks.
Rounding up the design, the rear gate slopes with the narrowing of the cabin profile, emphasising the sense of lightness with an aerodynamic look. The newly styled 18-inch alloy wheels are designed to evoke a sense of speed and power, with a sloping spoke design and sharp-cut surfaces that mimic the teeth of gears. Choose your sportiest shoes to match this racy footwear for the road!
The stylish Crosstrek was designed to live a vibrant and glamorous lifestyle in just about any environment, from the hustle and bustle of the city to the roadtrips to Malaysia on long weekends, this is the ultimate way to travel in style and safety.
To meet the demands of digital natives and individuals seeking a real driver’s car that combines cutting-edge safety and technology, Subaru has introduced its Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 Driver Assist Technology in the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid, which qualifies as Level 2 ADAS semi-autonomous driving technology. EyeSight is Subaru's state-of-the-art advanced driver assist technology, with stereo cameras that work like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead to assist the driver and help reduce accidents.
Subaru’s award-winning preventive safety system, EyeSight, is now more intuitive than ever. Newly equipped with an innovative wide-angle monocular camera in addition to the original stereo cameras, EyeSight gets an upgrade with new features, which are especially useful in Singapore’s traffic congestion during peak hours.
The new Enhanced EyeSight 4.0’s Pre-Collision Braking function now covers even more traffic scenarios at intersections, thanks to its improved stereo cameras with coverage that has almost doubled laterally (from left to right) as well as vertically, plus the additional wide-angle monocular camera which is able to detect pedestrians and two-wheeled vehicles in an even wider area to the lateral front sides of the vehicle than the stereo cameras can.
The most advanced version of Subaru's signature safety system, the new Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 is able to help the driver look left and right, to detect obstacles and help prevent potential collisions, not only within its own lane, but at neighbouring lanes as well (e.g., vehicles travelling in the opposite direction and pedestrians crossing the road at left- or right-turn junctions).
Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 offers nine preventive safety functions, which are Lane Centering Function, Lane Departure Prevention, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Sway Warning, Autonomous Emergency Steering, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and Lead Vehicle Start Alert, as well as Pre-Collision Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control, which have been improved for even better performance.
The new Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 system in the Crosstrek elevates Subaru’s legendary commitment to safety and takes it to the next level.
Another safety upgrade for the car is Driver Monitoring System (DMS) that is standard in the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid. DMS uses an infra-red camera and facial recognition technology to monitor the driver’s eyes and alerts the driver when the system detects that he/she is distracted or falling asleep.
The Crosstrek is also equipped with Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB), which automatically applies the brakes if needed to prevent a rearward collision while the Crosstrek is reversing at 1.5 to 15km/h.
With eight airbags as standard in the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid, including a knee airbag for the driver and a seat cushion airbag for the front passenger, Subaru continues to focus on protecting occupants in the unlikely event of an accident.
Subaru’s successful efforts to support safe driving continues with a wide repertoire of safety features in the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid, encompassing the new Enhanced EyeSight 4.0 Advanced Driver Assist Technology, along with proven active safety performance and a suite of passive safety equipment, to ensure peace-of-mind motoring in every situation.
In order to create a fun car that makes every drive a joy, Subaru has embraced the digital lifestyle with the inclusion of the automaker’s new-generation infotainment touchscreen.
The 11.6-inch infotainment unit is a vertical tablet-style display which centralises vehicle information and onboard entertainment within the middle of the instrument panel. The large screen has significantly improved the operability of climate control, vehicle settings and smartphone functions, in addition to significantly enhancing the enjoyment of entertainment functions.
Both driver and passengers will love the 11.6-inch touchscreen and its high-performance CPU deliver a buttery-smooth, smartphone-like user interface with easy tapping/swiping operations. Further connectivity is provided by well-placed USB-A and USB-C ports, wireless Apple CarPlay®, wireless Android Auto, and Bluetooth.
The convenient connection of digital devices on board the Crosstrek allows all passengers to stream the latest types of media entertainment straight from their portable gadgets to the big screen in the dashboard. Plug and play, press on and play more. Keeping the precious devices charged up in the car is easy, too.
In addition, tactile buttons and switches continue to be provided for often-adjusted functions such as audio volume and air-con temperature that drivers can perform without distractions.
Another game changer in the cabin are the new pair of ergonomic front seats which are designed to provide supreme support and maximum comfort. Everything from the premium materials that run through every inch of the smart, swanky and spacious cabin, to the attractive yet durable leather upholstery, adds a touch of classiness to the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid cabin.
The all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid also features ample cargo space, with plenty of versatility as well. It offers a bigger vehicle in all dimensions, whether its road presence, passenger cabin or cargo space. The Crosstrek cannot be beaten for versatility, practicality, reliability, cost effectiveness and just sheer comfort.
The boot is capable of accommodating up to three golf bags, or luggage for holidaymakers, or tools of the trade for serious influencers, or sports gear to support the weekend warrior.
It comes equipped with trunk cargo net hooks and bag hooks to enhance your shopping experience. These hooks securely hold your items in place, such as shopping bags filled with goodies, preventing them from shifting while driving the car.
Whether you’re seeking greener pastures as an online persona or seeking scenic places as an offline adventurer, the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid will take you there – safely and easily, anytime and anywhere.
Confident, comfortable and reliable driving in all roads, terrain and weather conditions has been achieved through Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is perfectly complemented by Subaru’s unique e-BOXER Engine. The all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid is the “Pro Max” of the crossover segment with its highly advanced driving technologies, including an improved X-MODE.
With X-MODE, the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid is capable of tackling challenging situations such as off-road quests or concrete-jungle manoeuvres with relative ease. Showing selectable drive modes for dirt, snow and mud, plus a multitude of vehicle conditions, the X-MODE switch is now integrated with the 11.6 inch high-def touchscreen display. On-screen data also includes vehicle tilt which would certainly give hard-core driving enthusiasts quite a thrill as they scale steep highway ramps in Singapore as well as when they take their Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid off-road in Malaysia’s countryside or up the Highlands.
In the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid, the activated X-MODE goes into standby when the vehicle's speed reaches approximately 40 km/h or more, automatically restoring the selected X-MODE function when the vehicle returns to a speed of approximately 35 km/h or less. This allows for X-MODE to respond appropriately to changes in the road conditions and help the driver to focus on driving.
For those who seek improving their driving enjoyment, Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) acts as an enthusiastic co-driver, offering driver-selectable modes including Intelligent Mode and Sport Mode. It is a perfect solution for those who seek a sportier response in Sport mode or fuel efficiency in Intelligent mode if needed.
SI-Drive enables driving performance suited to every mood and driving scenario. Both Intelligent mode and Sporty mode are applicable to SI-Drive. Intelligent mode helps Subaru users improve fuel economy, while Sporty mode enhances acceleration response by setting a higher engine speed during constant speed driving. Furthermore, when using Auto Stepped Speed Control, Sporty mode features a closer gear ratio compared to Intelligent mode, providing a sportier feel and enhancing driving experience.
In Hybrid models such as this e-BOXER, Sport mode keeps this Crosstrek’s engine running constantly, leading to improve acceleration responsiveness. In addition, motor assist is used to achieve more powerful acceleration than gasoline models.
FURTHER REFINEMENT TO ENHANCE EFFICIENCY AND PERFORMANCE
The Subaru e-BOXER engine has been further refined to boost efficiency and performance. With new components such as the cylinder head and pistons, reliability has been enhanced, along with a reduction in vibration and noise. These new additions also aid weight reduction, which enhances the overall dynamic performance of the all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid.
Further improvements in fuel economy and reduction in vibrations come from the new Lineartronic transmission, with over 80 percent of components that has been upgraded for better performance. The gear ratio coverage has been expanded for better acceleration when moving off, as well as driving performance and fuel efficiency during high-speed cruising.
E-BOXER is a hybrid system that uses electricity to provide environmental performance while simultaneously providing drivers with a seamless and natural feeling of acceleration and deceleration.
The Subaru e-BOXER system adjusts the power split between the 2-litre Boxer engine and the electric motor to match the driving requirements in real time, so as to provide quiet, smooth and strong performance in all driving conditions.
The suspension system has been redesigned to improve collision safety performance and ride comfort. Air resistance is also reduced thanks to an aerodynamic cover added to the rear support cross member that aids in fuel economy.
Being the only vehicle at this price range to come with SAWD, the Crosstrek is able to put all its added performance from its electric motor to all four wheels for maximum traction in any kind of weather or situation.
The all-new Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid is a comfortable yet capable vehicle, which is ready to tag-team with you and your lifestyle, whether online, offline, on the road or off the beaten track.
With its undefeated safety technologies, unmatched utility and unrivalled design, the all-new Subaru Crosstrek e-BOXER Hybrid raises the bar in Singapore’s SUV segment, empowering owners to turn it up with life’s adventures!
