Into the Wild: Test Driving the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness

April 10th, 2024 by

As a team passionate about adventure and exploration, we at Bachman Subaru were eager to get behind the wheel of the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness. Promising rugged capability and off-road prowess, this crossover beckons to those with a spirit of adventure. Join us as we share our firsthand experience of test driving the Crosstrek Wilderness and uncovering its impressive features.

Anticipation Builds: Preparing for the Test Drive

The day had finally arrived – the opportunity to experience the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness firsthand. Stepping onto our dealership lot, the Crosstrek Wilderness stood proudly, adorned with its distinctive design elements that spoke of rugged exploration. Its bold front grille, matte-black finish, and Anodized Copper-finish accents hinted at the adventures waiting to be had.

First Impressions: Exterior Design

Approaching the Crosstrek Wilderness, we couldn’t help but appreciate its purposeful design. The increased ground clearance, beefy wheel arch cladding, and front skid plates exuded a sense of readiness for the off-road trails. The Wilderness badges added a touch of exclusivity, letting us know this Crosstrek was not your average crossover.

Getting Behind the Wheel: Interior Comfort and Features

Slipping into the driver’s seat, we were greeted by an interior designed for adventure. The StarTex® water-repellent upholstery felt durable yet comfortable, ready to handle any outdoor excursion. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system was intuitive, providing easy access to navigation, music, and connectivity features.

On the Road: Performance and Handling

Turning the key, the SUBARU BOXER engine roared to life, eager for the journey ahead. As we merged onto the highway, the 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque delivered ample power for smooth acceleration. The Crosstrek Wilderness effortlessly cruised through city streets, its suspension absorbing bumps and imperfections with ease.

Off the Beaten Path: Exploring Capability

Leaving the pavement behind, we ventured onto a gravel road leading into the wilderness. Engaging X-MODE with a simple press of a button, we felt the Crosstrek Wilderness transform. The system optimized traction and stability, allowing us to confidently navigate loose gravel and uneven terrain.

Conquering Challenges: Hill Descent Control

Approaching a steep incline, we activated Hill Descent Control, curious to experience its capabilities. As the Crosstrek Wilderness descended with controlled precision, we felt a sense of confidence in its off-road prowess. The system managed the speed, allowing us to focus on steering and enjoying the rugged scenery outside.

A Versatile Companion: Cargo Space and Utility

Stopping to appreciate the view, we took a moment to explore the cargo space of the Crosstrek Wilderness. With the rear seats folded down, the generous cargo area provided ample room for camping gear, hiking equipment, and more. The standard roof rails and Anodized Copper-finish accents hinted at the possibilities for adventure accessories.

Safety First: EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

Throughout our test drive, we were accompanied by Subaru’s EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. Features like Pre-Collision Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control offered peace of mind on the road. The Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist kept us aware of our surroundings, adding an extra layer of safety during lane changes.

Discover Your Wilderness Spirit with the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness

Our test drive of the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Wilderness left us exhilarated and inspired. From its rugged design to its off-road capabilities and versatile interior, the Crosstrek Wilderness is a true adventurer’s companion.
