SUBARU XV

Let your XV Adventure begin

Select Model

All-Wheel. All-Adventure.

Compact in size it might be but the Subaru XV is big on ability both on and off road. Unlike its competition, the XV is much more than an urban run around used for school run duties. While it will cruise round town with aplomb, Subaru’s stylish SUV also has one of he highest ground clearances in the class. Along with symmetrical All-wheel drive it gives the XV off-road ability its peers can only dream about. It’s light too and with a range of fuel efficient Boxer petrol or diesel engines you’ll be surprised at the fuel economy.

Seven days a week, week in week out, the XV takes it all in its stride.

Get involved

All XV models are covered by a 5 year/ 100,000 mile (whichever is sooner) Limited Warranty. Terms apply.

For 2015 the XV has had a makeover with a refreshed interior, new factory-fit sat nav and audio systems and revised suspension for an even smoother, more supple ride.
