That's how I felt when I got back from San Francisco and the northern California coast. I think every other car on the road there is a Subie!I don't want to see myself coming and going at every intersection. After my trip to Maine two weeks ago, I'm on Subaru overload...they're everywhere in New England
I'm in total agreement with how Subaru plans to grow (or not grow...). My only concern is that due to their future limited production, the company would charge a hefty premium for the brand.
Actually most "professional" car reviewers agree with you. Yet this odd spot appeals to so many of us. Why?Honestly, the Crosstrek is positioned in an odd spot.
Totally agree---and the 2018 redesign puts it clearly well ahead of the other sub-compact SUV crossovers. Hope the 2020 doesn't have somthing important that I will have to try to retrofit to my 2019.Actually most "professional" car reviewers agree with you. Yet this odd spot appeals to so many of us.

I'd argue because the Crosstrek has the advantages of a compact car (size and fuel efficiency) and a small SUV (go anywhere AWD and some cargo capability). Honestly my Crosstrek feels like a larger vehicle, of course that's personal opinion. It also looks more rugged than some of the other offerings, that often are referred to as "cute utes". Of course, the very competitive price has a lot to do with it's appeal as well.
Subaru has done a good job as of late attracting new buyers, like me, that otherwise would have purchased something else. I was seriously considering a Mazda CX-5 or another Toyota Tacoma, but am instead a happy Crosstrek owner. Again I'm really happy they aren't trying to milk this prosperity at a possible loss of quality.
