2016 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Frankly, after Toyota bought an 8.7-percent stake in Subaru way back in 2005 that's since expanded to just under 16.5-percent, I expected a hybrid much sooner than this 2016 model year. Now, a decade later, the Japanese brand's storied boxer is electrically assisted, and while this move might not seem necessary when considering the Crosstrek already achieves good ... Read More
