2019 Subaru Crosstrek/XV PHEV

Interesting review of the phev xv/crosstrek.

Bad points for me? Quite a bit of boot space lost 🙁 and no flappy paddle to manually override the CVT. Would want that for the b roads.

Other bad point, so far at least, is no turbo option. Just 2.0 normally aspirated. Still want to see them try the 1.6 turbo from the levorg. I think that would make a good combo for performance and economy.

Good points? Performance sounds similar ish to diesel xv! And can run on full electric for town driving.

Real world mpg still not really known. Hoping to see 45+ but balancing that with electric for short journeys and town driving could possibly justify it.

The Weekend Office

Too much to do and so little time.. 

Brake lines on the focus now all replaced! Now just need to sort out the arches and part of the sills. 

Sound familiar? Yep, the same sort of repair that’s required on the Impreza. Although the Impreza a little worse under the skin 🙁

A message to the Millenial Generation

I urge everyone to take 15 mins of their time over the weekend to watch this video. Not just ‘millennials’ its relevant to everyone!

It does a good job of summarising my own thoughts and feelings about the modern world and the people we share it with. We can all help each other.

Once done. Consider going onto Netflix and watching ‘The Circle’ then come back and tell me it’s all nonsense.


Not my video, but a reshare from facebook.
