2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek 1st Drive & Off-Road Review

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Is the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek more than just a taller Subaru Impreza and if so is it off-road worthy? Those are the questions that we try to answer in the video first drive review as we test the new 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek on the beautiful Island of Oahu, Hawaii. At 8.7 inches of ground clearance the new Subaru XV Crosstrek certainly has enough ground clearance to be off-road worthy. When you combine that with Subaru's all-wheel-drive and new body cladding the parts are correct for more than just a another small commuter Crossover in an already crowded market segment. But what happens when the rubber hits the dirt road? Check out this video to find out.
