Subaru's 2018 Crosstrek crossover will enter a new generation on the Subaru Global Platform with the first redesign since its launch in 2012, Subaru has announced.

Subaru showed the 2018 Crosstrek at the Geneva auto show on March 7. The vehicle, which is sold as the Subaru XV outside of the U.S., is based on the Impreza platform. The 2017 Impreza is the first Subaru to arrive with the new platform.

Like the Impreza, the 2018 Crosstrek will have a standard all-wheel-drive system and compact SUV-like body. It will include additional collision safety and hazard avoidance technology, as well as more responsive handling.

Subaru will provide additional details about the vehicle at the New York International Auto Show in April.
