Subaru Crosstrek gets a boost for 2021 with a new Sport model

The Subaru Crosstrek compact SUV, a darling among car owners in the Puget Sound region, has a new Sport trim for 2021 and an optional new 182-horsepower 2.5-liter engine.

Exterior appearance modifications on the 2021 Crosstrek include a redesigned front bumper and grille, and new wheel designs.
