We’re delighted to announce that the Subaru XV has been awarded 4x4 Magazine’s ‘Crossover Estate of the Year 2021’ for the second time.

4x4 magazine is the market leader in automotive off-roading. They test a large number of four-wheel drive vehicles from the world's top manufacturers. So, to win this award again in its category further strengthens Subaru’s on-going dedication to build cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable, too.

Happy on slick city roads or rough-and-muddy country tracks, XV brings together Subaru’s legendary off-road capability with superior on-road comfort, athletic style and state-of-the-art technology. With permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive you can expect superior road-holding and handling, on and off road, and in any conditions.

Hailed by the judges for its safety credentials XV also makes an ideal family car. Perfect for outdoor sports and hobbies, weekends away, or even just the school run you know that with the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating you will be offered the very best protection for you and your family wherever you go.

Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: "It’s one of the safest cars there is – as well as having crisp road manners and an astonishing level of off-road ability."

Subaru UK Managing Director John Hurtig commented: “We’re delighted that the XV has won 4x4 Magazine’s Crossover Estate of the Year 2021. We know we have a great product that our customers continue to love and trust year after year, mile after mile. Because they know that owning a Subaru means you are driving one of the safest, most capable and reliable vehicles on the road today. Something we are immensely proud of.”
