Going green, lean and very clean.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of new ways to meaningfully contribute to a greener planet on a personal scale.  Yet having an eco-friendly conscience doesn’t mean it can’t be fun, stylish and exhilarating.

Enter the all-new 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid, one of the most fuel-efficient AWD hybrid crossovers available today, freshly arrived at Hassett of Wantagh.

It’s not hard to love the XV on many levels.  Built in a zero-landfill plant with 100 percent of waste recycled or turned into electricity, the XV has unique engineering built in from the start, with go-anywhere capabilities and the lifestyle versatility to let you do what you love to do, and feel like you’re also doing your part.

The XV Crosstrek Hybrid features 17-inch alloy wheels, all-season tires, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, raised roof rails, and a versatile cargo area. It provides the right amount of engineering, energy and performance to enhance every aspect of a go-anywhere, do-anything lifestyle.

14CL_XVH_4C_AF35942_020718The Subaru Boxer® engine has a low center of gravity for agile handling backed by dedicated all-wheel drive to distribute power and deliver a constant grip on the road.  In fact, the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient AWD hybrid SUV crossover in America, delivering 31 MPG (combined gas/electric), with loads more capabilities––and fun––than a hybrid sedan.

Which is why you can go anywhere in the XV Crosstrek Hybrid with family and friends, and have extra space for a clean conscience aboard.

With over three decades in business, Hassett is consistently recognized for its excellence in sales and service, which is why we continue to be Long Island’s No. 1 Ford Lincoln Subaru dealer.

Feel The Love, Love The Feel Of A 2014 Subaru!

Since 2008, Subaru has manufactured the best-selling all-wheel-drive (AWD) cars on America’s roads and highways. Furthermore, it’s the only manufacturer that’s earned the IIHS Top Safety Picks for every one of its models the last four years in a row. What really sets Subaru apart, however, is that despite these achievements, their exciting new 2014 line still manages to go beyond what’s come before.


All nine vehicles in the new model lineup are designed to fit into their drivers’ active lifestyles. Take the 2014 Subaru Outback, for example…already the best-selling AWD car in America, new additions like adaptive shift control with Lineartronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) make the new year model even more desirable. And since it also comes with available Aha™ infotainment and Subaru’s exclusive EyeSight driver-assist system, the 2014 Outback is even better to go out in, wherever it’s going.

America’s most fuel-efficient AWD crossover with its 33-mpg highway rating, the new Subaru XV Crosstrek is equally comfortable on local streets or wilderness trails, thanks in part to its 8.7-inch ground clearance. It too possesses Subaru’s Aha™ infotainment system, as well as a full cadre of genuine Subaru accessories. A soon-to-be-introduced XV Crosstrek Hybrid model will also feature HEV-type Lineartronic CVT.

Virtually all-new for 2014 is the Subaru Forester. The enhanced 2.0-liter DOHC turbocharged Boxer engine provides the power to go virtually wherever one’s heart desires, plus great fuel efficiency with a 32-mpg highway rating. This year’s model, however, comes with a lot of exciting and new features, including available power rear gate, keyless access and start system, Lineartronic CVT, and Aha™ infotainment. Of course, one remaining asset is Subaru’s legendary AWD capability.

Subaru’s traditional sports car, the BRZ, remains one of the lightest and lowest in its class, with responsive handling that makes the journey as pleasurable as reaching its desired destination. The BRZ’s naturally-aspirated, direct-injected BOXER engine produces 100-hp per liter, resulting in 100-hp and 150 foot-pounds of torque for exceptional pick-up and performance, yet is still roomy enough to take luggage and two sets of golf clubs along for the ride. For 2014, all this is complemented by its available Aha™ infotainment system, both driver and front-passenger knee pads, and revised badging.


At 36-mpg highway, the 2014 Subaru Impreza remains Americans most fuel-efficient AWD car, as well as one with low emissions, thanks to its PZEV-certified BOXER engine. In its new incarnation, Impreza is again available in four- and five-door body styles, both featuring a flexible cargo area and available state-of-the-art navigation assistance. However, for 2014, it comes with the new Aha™ infotainment system, and certain models are also equipped with a rear-vision camera for greater safety.

The other models — Tribeca, Legacy, and both WRX and WRX STI — are all equally impressive for the upcoming model year, offering today’s driver the complete spectrum of automotive superiority. “Subaru has done an amazing job with all its lines for 2014,” says Matt Fusco, Subaru Sales Manager at Hassett of Wantagh. “Whatever our customers are looking for in a vehicle, I promise these new Subarus will not disappoint. I invite everyone to visit our showroom on Sunrise Highway in Wantagh to see and experience these remarkable new models for themselves.”

It fits in perfectly on Manhattan’s busiest streets. And is equally at home on a distant back country road. Best of all, the new Subaru 2013 XV Crosstrek is just what planet Earth ordered.

The latest crossover from Subaru, the 2013 Crosstrek is a Partial Zero Emission Vehicle that has already earned the distinction of being the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive (AWD) crossover in America. Having already impressed European audiences at last year’s Frankfort Auto Show, as well as the thousands who attended the 2012 New York Auto Show, this amazing vehicle is ready to make its Long Island debut at Hassett Subaru of Wantagh on Monday, October 1st.

“Customers and staff alike are excited about the Crosstrek’s arrival,” states Hassett Subaru Manager Matt Fusco. “We’ve already had a lot of people place pre-orders for one, and are still accepting them daily. I think the excitement stems from there being so many things to like about the Crosstrek, from its 25 city/33 highway mileage and low emissions to the responsive steering and AWD. Then there’s the fact that it’s made in a zero landfill plant. The more you know about the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek, the better it looks.”

Under the hood, the XV Crosstrek features a 148hp, 2.0-liter “Boxer®-four” engine, which gives it a low center of gravity for quick response. Then there’s the enhanced 8.7 inches of ground clearance, integrated roof rails, and “Lineatronic Continuous End” technology that transmits power to all four wheels simultaneously for superior traction and handling. And even a perfunctory study of the interior reveals an abundance of rear-seat legroom and convenient storage compartments, Fold down the rear seats and the XV Crosstrek reveals a flat-load surface with over 50 cubic feet of space. Finally, a standard cargo cover allows owners to keep valuables hidden when the back seat is in place.

According to Fusco, Subaru is offering the 2013 XV Crosstrek in two models: Premium and Limited Trim. Both possess a wealth of exciting features including a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls; Bluetooth phone integration and audio streaming; power doors, locks, and windows; security system; iPod control; and USB/auxiliary in-jacks. Additionally, while the Premium model is characterized by a multi-functional screen to display information on fuel economy and an advanced security system with engine immobilizer, the Limited Trim version will provide leather upholstery, automatic climate control, a camera that can record behind the vehicle and display what it sees on a 4.3 “screen, and automatic lights.

“Whichever model a customer prefers, buying a new Subaru XV CrossTrek from Hassett of Wantagh is the fast track to being a happy driver,” adds Fusco. “That’s because we’re the only dealer that includes the ‘Hassett Advantage’ with every purchase. From our huge inventory of Subarus to highly-competitive pricing and expert service, we make sure Hassett Subaru owners have it all.”

The benefits of the “Hassett Advantage Program” include:

• Free initial service for all new and pre-owned vehicles
• Every fifth oil change free (excludes diesel)
• Free 30-day car washes
• Saturday service hours
• 24-hour roadside assistance for new vehicles
• Courtesy shuttle service
• Three-year/36,000-mile, bumper-to-bumper warranty for new Subaru and Ford vehicles
• Free loaner cars for new vehicles
• Five percent rebate on all parts and service

Remember…the first models are arriving Monday, October 1st, so plan to be at Hassett Subaru on Sunrise Highway in Wantagh early to be one of the first to greet these amazing new crossovers.
