SUBARU has teased its new Crosstrek SUV which will be replacing the XV model in its line-up early in 2024.
Prices are expected to be similar to the XV with the Crosstrek costing from around Â£34,500 and the newcomer will be available in two trim levels - Limited and Touring.
The Crosstrek is all-wheel-drive with three drive modes for conditions ranging from normal driving to mild snow and dirt and deep snow and mud. Hill descent control and an auto hold function are also fitted.
The image released by Subaru gives a hazy look at the car which has Subaru's new frontal design with chunky wheel arches and a sharply raked roofline.
It will be powered by a mild-hybrid system mating Subaru's e-Boxer 2.0-litre engine to an electric motor via the company's Lineartronic automatic gearbox.
The Crosstrek will come with the latest Subaru Eyesight technology which includes systems for both active and passive safety as well as a rear vehicle detection system while the interior includes an 11.6-inch infotainment set up with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
An integrated navigation system will be standard on Touring specification versions.
