Does it seem surprising that, even in 2014, there's a car company out there without an alternative fuel vehicle in its lineup? Subaru remedies its gas-only situation this year with the XV Crosstrek Hybrid. This little crossover was all-new for 2013, and now it's getting the new hybrid system, too. Maybe Subaru is dipping a toe into new waters in both cases rather than committing all the way with a hybrid in one of its iconic models, like the Forester or the Impreza? But the XV Crosstrek is also one of the only crossover vehicles to have a hybrid on board, so maybe they're marching boldly into new territory. We'll just have to wait and see which way the coin lands in 2015.
