The distilation of the best Subaru technologies, smartest thinking and rich Subaru heritage. Stunning modern interior. Class leading fuel economy. High-tech connectivity. 220mm Ground clearance. Dynamic handling.
Few cars deliver the thrilling eagerness and spontaneity of the Subaru XV. It's achieved with the horizontally-opposed SUBARU BOXER engine, which places the pistons 180 degrees apart for a lower, flatter profile compared to other engine types.
This gives the power plant and by extension the whole car a lower centre of gravity and more balanced weight distribution. In addition, the pistons' opposing movements counteract each other, which naturally reduce vibration.
Lineartronic CVT + Active Torque Split AWD
The all-new Subaru XV achieves new levels of response and efficiency with Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission. This unique transmission dramatically improves fuel efficiency by keeping the engine in its optimal rev range, and preserving momentum that is often lost during a gear shift. And thanks to its compact and lightweight configuration, it ensures a quick response and engaging performance. Steering wheel mounted paddle shifters provide sporty control, giving you quick access to higher revs and greater engine power. In addition, the Subaru XV responds to changing driving conditions by adjusting the front and rear wheel torque distribution in real time.
6 Speed Manual Transmission + Viscous Centre Differential AWD
Geared for exciting response and control, the 6-speed manual transmission enables you to define your own driving style. Paired with the AWD system which utilizes a viscous limited-slip centre differential (LSD), the LSD instantaneously redistributes the torque to the front and rear wheels as needed, whenever the balance of traction changes. Pull away cleanly as the Hill start assist helps you to avoid rolling backwards.
Constant Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Synergy and Balance - these are the key characteristics that are harmoniously combined in every Subaru. The XV shares this combination of Constant Symmetrical All Wheel Drive and Horizontally Opposed Boxer Engine technology for predictable handling on any road surface. The improved weight balance provided works in conjunction with the superior traction of AWD to limit chassis roll and pitch which occur when driving around corners or braking, for maximum stability at all times. The result? The chassis rocks less and ride comfort is increased, making the journey enjoyable for all passengers.
