Interestingly enough:

Honda Accord 1.5T:
0-60.....7.6 sec 1/4 mile..... 15.9 sec


Crosstrek 2.0
0-60...8.3 sec 1/4 mile....16.5 sec.

But as we know the Subaru haters can't resist it.. smirk



Hey jackwagon, that's for the hybrid which is faster than the regular Crosstrek which is what the VAST majority of sales are and what you're talking about here. From the same article which you clearly didn't read:
Quote
Is it quicker?

We've criticized the non-hybrid Crosstrek for is its mediocre acceleration. It took 9.0 seconds for our long-term Crosstrek Premium to hit 60 mph and 16.9 seconds for the quarter mile with a speed of 83.4 mph. A slightly heavier Crosstrek Limited accelerated to 60 mph in 9.8 seconds. On the drag strip, the Crosstrek Hybrid clocked a 0-60 time of 8.3 seconds on its way to a quarter-mile time of 16.5 seconds at 83.5 mph.

If you defended the Crosstrek and your XT for the things they're good at and actually realized what they're not good at, you wouldn't look like an imbecile in these threads you post. The Crosstrek's acceleration is adequate for a great number of people but the fact that you continue to try and argue it isn't slow is the problem. It would be like me trying to argue that salads are a good meat substitute; salads are good but not a meat substitute.

My Imp (same engine/tranny/chassis) *was* slow on on-ramps. Otherwise, it wasn't a problem in a car I bought for good fuel mileage, and mandatory travel 35 miles one-way to work, regardless of the snow depth.

Worse was the brick-wall MPG drop at 60+ MPH.

Still like the styling.

0-60 in 10-11 seconds. That is SLOW by todays standard..very slow.

Honestly, that didn't look too bad. For put-putting around town, I don't see a problem. Not everyone needs a rocket ship to go get their groceries.



I put my baby to sleep and the car wasn't done acceleration...

Drive one long term and you'll agree it is slow and gutless.

I'm not disagreeing that it's slow. I'm just stating that not everyone needs/wants a fast car, so the Crosstrek has its place in the market. Driving a slower car requires a little bit of advanced planning in some situations, and sadly, many people seem to have lost that ability. Driverless cars can't come soon enough.

Everyone has a plan until the guy in front of them slams on the brakes at the end of the on ramp.

And again, not all of us drive in areas where a difference of 3 seconds in 0-60 time is a difference between life and death.
