Certain trims get their own special paint colors, too. The Toyota has fewer custom accents and doesn't receive any exterior updates for the 2021 model year.


Performance and handling are a strength of the Subaru Crosstrek at Subaru of Gwinnett. This year, the Crosstrek returns with the sophisticated all-wheel drive drivetrain that has made it so popular in the past.
