Subaru Crosstrek is now one of the 5 hardest-to-find new cars in America

The 2022 Subaru Crosstrek is the most popular model for Subaru of America and is now among the top five new vehicles with the fewest available models. Automotive News (via subscription) reports that the top five selling vehicles have the 2022 Subaru Cross Trek subcompact SUV, Kia Forte, Toyota Highlander, Toyota RAV4 and Toyota Corolla.

Automotive News reports that Japanese imports had the lowest inventories of the thirty best-selling vehicles, and Subaru of America tops the list. Subaru had the fewest new cars to sell until last month when Honda, with three days of inventory, is now the car brand with the fewest new models to sell to its customers.

We checked with a source near Subaru and they told us that every 2022 Crosstrek they have in the pipeline is already being sold through September. The same goes for the updated 2022 Subaru Forester compact SUV.

The Crosstrek is the most requested model for Subaru of America, and it is just two model sales away from the number one selling model in the lineup. The 2022 Outback midsize SUV is the best-selling model, with 49,482 models delivered to customers through April. The Crosstrek is next, with 49,480 subcompact SUVs sold in the first four months of the year.

What is the price of the Crosstrek 2022?

Customers should be aware of a recent $750 price increase effective April 26, 2022. Base trim now costs $24,320, Premium ($25,470), Sport ($28,670), Limited ($30,170), and Crosstrek Hybrid ($37,520 ). Prices include destination and delivery charges ($1,175).

The 2022 Crosstrek Sport trim with the 2.5-litre engine and the dual-function X-Mode is the most requested trim level. Customers are willing to wait five to six months to get one.

What’s next for Crosstrek?

The 2023 Subaru Crosstrek gets a complete overhaul with new upgrades. Sources close to Subaru say the Japanese automaker will launch a new Crosstrek Wilderness trim level in the US next year. Look for Subaru to announce the next generation Crosstrek subcompact SUV soon.

In September, the Japanese automaker was able to unveil the third-generation Crosstrek at the International Auto Show in North America, but Subaru has not confirmed that. Stay tuned.

Ahead of a complete overhaul for the 2023 model change, the 2022 Subaru Crosstrek subcompact SUV is America’s most popular model in the four-wheel drive lineup. It is now one of the top five vehicles in America that are the hardest to find.
