Subaru Cargo Area
Cargo Area

The cargo area has been reengineered for even more space and versatility. The 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats now fold even flatter to better accommodate larger items such as bicycles. The cargo volume has increased as well, and the tailgate features a wider opening to make access easier than ever before. Standard features include a cargo cover, hooks and tie-downs, as well as roof rails up top for even more capacity.

Subaru Infotainment system
Infotainment system

The available AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA infotainment system features an 8" high-resolution multi-gesture capacitive touchscreen. This system incorporates Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity and streaming audio, dual USB ports/iPod control, auxiliary audio input and steering wheel integrated controls.

Subaru LED Headlamps
LED Headlamps

LED Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist actively track in the direction of a turn to enhance visibility. If you’re approaching oncoming traffic at night, auto high beams will sense the road ahead and automatically switch to low beam.

Subaru Keyless Entry
Keyless Entry

The keyless entry and push button start system makes short work of setting off. A key fob gives you easy keyless entry. Simply grip the door handles to unlock them and start the engine with the push of a button.

Technology

(Click for closer view and details)

At the core of the Subaru XV is the stuff of legend. A Subaru Boxer engine that has been reengineered for the new model year. The legendary Subaru Symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive System. An even lower centre of gravity created by the new Subaru Global Platform. And a long-travel independent suspension developed over decades of road racing and rallying experience. This core technology is the reason why the XV delivers superior handling and all-road/all-weather capability, as well as a level of confidence behind the wheel unmatched in its class.

Subaru All-Wheel Drive
All-Wheel Drive

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) delivers power to all four wheels at all times, ensuring enhanced control of the XV on or off-road – even in poor conditions. The entire drive system, from the Boxer engine to the rear differential, is mounted in a straight, symmetrical line, delivering the XV 's stability and balance.

Subaru Stability
Stability

While most engines stand vertically, our Subaru Boxer engine lays flat – delivering handling that no other engine can. Sitting horizontally in the engine bay, it moves like a boxer’s fists with a punch and counterpunch action. With perfect balance and a much lower centre of gravity, it creates less noise and vibration too.

Subaru Global Platform
Subaru Global Platform

The new Subaru Global Platform sees dramatic increases to body rigidity through the use of more high-tensile materials. Other benefits of this advanced platform include reduced twisting forces on the frame and body through the suspension system. This, in turn, creates a smoother and more comfortable ride, highly responsive and precise steering, excellent straight-line stability and low levels of noise and vibration.

Subaru X-Mode
X-Mode

When the X-Mode system is activated, Hill Descent Control automatically maintains a constant speed when travelling down steep declines. With this feature, the driver can focus exclusively on steering and negotiating curves in the road, confident that all the braking and speed control requirements are taken care of.

Safety

(Click for closer view and details)

The combination of a world-class all-wheel drive system, striking agility, superior visibility and class-leading active safety systems gives the XV excellent evasive capabilities. Next-generation technologies used in the EyeSight advanced driver assist system, the Subaru Rear/Side Vehicle Detection System and ABS represent the critical first line of defence – and the best way to avoid a potential accident in the first place.

Subaru EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control
EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control

EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control lets the system automatically adjust your speed to keep a set distance from the vehicle ahead. By constantly monitoring distance and speed, it adjusts the engine, transmission and brakes to maintain speed in line with the traffic flow.

EyeSight Lane Sway & Departure Warning
EyeSight Lane Sway & Departure Warning

EyeSight Lane Sway & Departure Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane.

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection
Rear Vehicle Detection

In addition to our Reverse Camera, Reverse Automatic Braking will sense and alert you if it detects you are about to hit something behind. And now it will even apply the brakes in the event you don't.

Subaru EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle Management
EyeSight Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Should EyeSight detect an obstacle in front of you while you are parked, and you put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, you’ll hear several short beeps, see a flashing indicator and the engine will reduce power to help you avoid a collision.

Subaru EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking
EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking

If EyeSight senses an impending collision, a buzzer and a light on the dashboard warn you. If you don’t take evasive action, the system can automatically apply the brakes and reduce engine power – either preventing the collision entirely, or reducing the severity, depending on your speed. If you apply the brakes, but not hard enough, EyeSight applies more braking force to stop the vehicle.

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection

In addition to our Reverse Camera, Reverse Automatic Braking will sense and alert you if it detects you are about to hit something behind. And now it will even apply the brakes in the event you don't.

Subaru Impact Protection
Impact Protection

In the event of a head-on collision, the Subaru Boxer engine and transmission are designed to absorb impact, and then break away from the vehicle structure and drop below the passenger cabin, for added protection. A total of seven airbags standard gives you peace of mind.

Subaru Advanced Frame Design
Advanced Frame Design

This proprietary advanced frame design is able to absorb 40% more impact energy than on the previous-generation Impreza. It strengthens the passenger compartment by linking the roof to the side pillars and the floor. As a result, impact energy coming from all directions is dissipated and diverted away from the passenger cabin.

Eyesight! Contributes to better awareness of the road and other road users. Also, ground clearance: the XV handles beautifully on dirt roads.

My wife loves her XV more than she loves me. Nothing ever goes wrong. It’s bright orange, demands attention, is fun, consistent, and safe.

The XV is an excellent crossover car. It has the compactness of a bigger hatch, but the ground clearance and driving convenience of a bigger SUV – certainly a perfect all-rounder! Its sleek features (and colour – mine is plasma green) also catches the eye. My next car will probably be an XV again!.
