On April 5, 2012, the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek was introduced at the New York International Auto Show. The XV Crosstrek expands the Subaru line of crossover-type vehicles. Versatile and fun to drive, it combines a bold, five-door design with an expanded-capability chassis, high fuel economy, and everyday comfort. It is scheduled to arrive at dealerships in the fall of 2012.

Subaru has been building vehicles with all-wheel drive systems for 40 years. The original system was available on the Japanese Leone Estate Van 4WD in 1972.
Since then, Subaru AWD technology has evolved. A variety of systems are mated to vehicles tuned for sporty driving, improved fuel efficiency and stability, and motorsports performance.
As of January 31, 2012, total worldwide production of Subaru AWD vehicles (including part-time 4WD vehicles) was 11,782,812 vehicles.
