Not Quick
The hybrid’s overall handling is like that of the standard Crosstrek with decent steering feedback and a solid, comfortable ride. However, the batteries are not light — they add about 500 pounds to the vehicle weight. Subaru says the hybrid is a full second faster to 60 mph than the standard Crosstrek, but the hybrid does not feel particularly quick, even under full throttle. But the Crosstrek Hybrid is not meant to be a sports car, and it is still enjoyable to drive.
