This past week has seen Subaru’s all-new 2018 Crosstrek in my driveway. It’s the high-riding Impreza with more ground clearance than a Jeep Grand Cherokee (though only by 0.1 inches) and a Boxer engine under the hood. Now in its second generation, the 2018 Crosstrek rides on Subaru’s new Global Platform and is powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated flat four-cylinder claimed to be 80 percent new. A new six-speed manual gearbox replaces the old five-speed and a Continuously Variable Transmission returns as the option. Both outside and in, the 2018 Crosstrek is highly improved and impressively capable at being a better crossover than most crossovers on the market. But as it turns out, the Crosstrek isn’t that fun to drive.
