The 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid comes with a 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter flat-four engine paired either with a five-speed manual gearbox or Subaru’s LinearTronic continuously variable transmission (CVT). The new hybrid powertrain inserts a 15-kilowatt (22-hp) electric motor between the engine and CVT, though it’s there largely to assist the engine rather than propel the vehicle on electricity alone. Subaru says the Crosstrek Hybrid can move away from a stop electrically, “under certain circumstances” and up to as much as 25 mph, but we expect the system to operate much like Honda’s mild-hybrid system–meaning it’s there to restart the engine, capture braking energy to recharge the nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, and otherwise add supplementary torque so the gasoline engine doesn’t have to work as hard.
