It can be quite a challenge to locate an SUV that combines affordability with remarkable off-road ability. At Belknap Subaru in Tilton, The Subaru Crosstrek is one of the few vehicles that achieves that feat. It already is the only subcompact crossover that comes with all-wheel drive as a standard feature, and it doesn’t stop there.

Efficiently powered by a 152-horsepower 2.0-Liter flat-four engine, the Subaru Crosstrek gets 8.7 inches of ground clearance, which lifts it far away from rocks, fallen branches, and other types of obstacles and impediments to protect your undercarriage during those exhilarating trail adventures around Manchester. The strut-type front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension keep bumps and dips from disturbing your driving experience. With active torque vectoring, braking power is applied to the inside front wheel to boost handling, provide sharper turning and neutralize steering, and increase cornering limits while turning. Hill descent control is present to enforce a safe drive downhill, as well as hill start assist to enforce a safe ascent up a slope. And there’s the all-wheel-drive system, which engages all four wheels with engine power to keep tires planted on surfaces made slick by rain, snow, or ice on Concord roads. Not many small SUVs, if any, can replicate this level of on- and off-road capability.

Inside the Crosstrek, Laconia drivers are welcomed by a well-appointed cabin with over 100 cubic feet of passenger space. For entertainment, you have STARLINK infotainment system, which is anchored by a 6.5-inch touchscreen for displaying information and blasts music and sound from a four-speaker AM/FM stereo system. Plymouth drivers can integrate smartphone functions using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and Bluetooth enables Claremont drivers to make and receive phone calls and stream audio from mobile devices. You can also connect your device with a cord to an audio jack for playing media or use the USB port to both play media and charge it. And included are features like electronic cruise control to keep you at a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you, keyless entry for convenient access to the Crosstrek, a rearview camera for assistance with backing out of a parking spot or your garage, a seven-airbag system for restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, and a theft-deterrent system to prevent unauthorized access.
