After polling our readers and poring over sales reports, we’ve found some of the best possible accessories for Crosstrek owners. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or trying to add some finishing touches to your new car, this list should point you to some of the coolest ideas. The best part is that none of these items require visiting a mechanic to install. They’re easily done at home and the most you will need is very basic hand tools.

Our Top Picks For Best Crosstrek Accessories:

This cool little storage container takes about 30 seconds to install and replaces the empty factory plastic cover. Most people use it to store coins for parking meters. But it can be used to hold any small items you may need to hide.

Our readers have said that these handy dog barriers are one of the most useful items they’ve purchased. They’re a direct fit for our cars and can help keep your best friends safe in the rear of the vehicle. This not only helps keep your car clean, but can protect both you and your pets in the unlikely event of a collision.

A good set of crossbars will allow you to install a wide variety of roof-top accessories on your Crosstrek. From light bars to roof baskets, these OEM style bars will help you get started! They’re very easy to install and look completely factory.

A trunk area cargo net is essential for keeping your items safe and your car clean. We’ve used these to keep our muddy hiking boots from sliding all over the trunk. It’s also handy for collecting any junk that you may find out on the trails. Sometimes we try to pack out any old soda cans and other litter that we find. It stays put in the net and doesn’t slide into our other gear.

Roof baskets are one of the best ways to free up some interior space. You can safely carry shovels, jacks, extra fuel, or recovery boards in a roof basket. There are a ton of good options, but the Rola roof basket is a great entry level option that don’t cost a lot.

This is one of the most popular accessories among our readers. These little dust covers can keep your interior looking almost new. Once dirt and dust get into those little cracks, it’s nearly impossible to get it out! They’re really inexpensive and take about 3 minutes to put throughout the car.

The door cups on most cars experience the most scratching of any part of the vehicle. These door cup guards are easy to install and don’t cost a lot. This can help maintain the value of your Crosstrek should you ever want to sell it.

While there are a lot of good all-weather floor mats available for the Subaru Crosstrek, these Husky Liners give so much more coverage than the majority of options. They’re super affordable and are made specifically to fit the Crosstrek. If you ever use your car for anything besides in-town driving, you NEED all-weather floor mats.

If you plan to take your Crosstrek off-road, a bumper guard is a great investment in order to keep it protected. Even though it is one of the more expensive items on this list, they are a bolt-on part that you can always remove and sell easily. This is a must-have for off-road and outdoor enthusiasts!
