The 2016 Subaru XV Model is here...

For 2016 the XV has had a makeover with more premium looking headlamps and grille, a new steering wheel with revised switches and two exciting new colours.

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.

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