Thumbs up Yes, your XV Crosstrek can do donuts...

...if it has a manual transmission.


For all you naysayers, the Subaru XV Crosstrek can, in fact, do donuts with just the VDC OFF button.

But bear in mind I have the 5-speed manual transmission, which has Subaru's Continuous AWD system, which operates differently from the Active AWD system used on Lineartronic CVT (the automatic, which is not a conventional automatic) models of the XV Crosstrek. The Lineartronic CVT models probably can't do it since RallyeBourne was unable to do it in his.

Oh, c'mon! The only way anyone can expect donuts on dry pavement is if they had a high-output engine, and the XV Crosstrek's engine isn't exactly high-output for its weight.


Also, I was able to do the same with my little brother's Subaru Impreza with the 5-speed manual on gravel. In fact, I was able to do fast donuts that might be considered gymkhana-worthy

I'd be happy if it would do 0-60 in less than 30 secs.

Mine does 0-60 in less than 10 seconds.

But both my brothers' Imprezas do 0-60 in less than 8 seconds.
