Top New Subaru SUVs Under 30k
Top New Subaru SUVs Under 30k
Posted on October 16, 2020
The crossover SUV market is a highly competitive one, and $30k will get you a lot of cars if you buy wisely. Subaru makes a particularly good choice in this price segment thanks to their trademark mix of quality, features, and affordability. Here are three of the best Rally Subaru options for SUVs under $30k at our Edmonton dealership.
Top 1: Subaru Crosstrek
There aren't many better value SUVs than the Subaru Crosstrek. For a starting price of under $24k, you'll get a subcompact vehicle that's ideal for daily city driving but can also handle tougher tasks with ease.
Based around a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine producing 152 horsepower, the Crosstrek has plenty of power under the hood, and the continuously variable transmission plus all-wheel drive makes for smooth and responsive handling.
Fuel economy is a strong point of the Crosstrek, with estimated figures of 8.1L / 100km on the highway and 10.5L / 100km in the city, making it an attractively inexpensive car to drive.
And while the Crosstrek is ideal for daily city duties, it can also handle life off the pavement thanks to its four-wheel independent suspension, intelligent traction control, and 22cm of ground clearance.
Top 2: Subaru Forester
The Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV for sale under $30k, and boasts a strong emphasis on value for money. With excellent fuel economy figures of 9L / 100km in the city and 7.1L / 100km on the highway, the Forester is an SUV that won't cost a fortune to run.
But the great fuel economy doesn't mean poor performance. Packing a 2.5L engine producing a generous 182 horsepower and 176lb-ft of torque, Forester's performance is more than a match for any daily driving situation. Marry that power to a CVT transmission and all-wheel drive, and you've got a smooth-riding SUV that's adaptable to all driving conditions.
Top 3: Subaru Outback
While most model versions of the Subaru Outback come in at over $30k, the base level trim can often be found for just under that price point. And while it may be the lowest trim in the lineup, you still get plenty of SUVs for your money.
The standard engine is a punchy 2.5L model producing 182 horsepower and 176lb-ft of torque, with an optional turbo engine pushing the output up to 260hp and 277lb-ft.
As usual with Subaru, the Outback features full-time all-wheel drive, which is paired with a smooth continuously variable transmission.
One area in which the Outback excels is in its infotainment technology provision. Based around dual 7" screens and running both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Outback is extremely well equipped for an SUV under the $30k mark.
