Subaru XV wins 4×4 Magazines Best Crossover Estate for the third time.
Subaru XV wins 4×4 Magazines Best Crossover Estate for the third time.

We're delighted to announce that the Subaru XV has been awarded the 4x4 of the Year, sponsored by BFGoodrich, ‘Crossover Estate of the Year’ for the second year running.

4x4 magazine is the market leader in automotive off-roading. They test many 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 building cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable too.

The multi-award winning XV is a brilliant combination of eye-catching design, true off-road All-Wheel Drive capability, class-leading safety and excellent entertainment technology. It’s the perfect size for urban and rural adventures so you can enjoy spending every moment with friends and family year after year, mile after mile.

Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: “The XV had already won its class last year, so with a revised model having just been introduced, it’s perhaps not a huge shock that it’s still on top. It’s not the biggest facelift in the world, but it hardly needed to be.”

“The XV was already very, very good. Its dynamics and refinement are all-round excellent and when you take it off-road, it’ll do things you wouldn’t believe possible. Combine that with the rock-solid build quality we’ve come to expect from Subaru, and you’ve got a stellar all-rounder that’s also brilliantly equipped and, no small thing, still one of the safest family cars there is, oh, and it’s great value for money too, every box ticked."

Subaru UK Managing Director, Pat Ryan commented: “We are delighted that the XV has won the 4x4 Magazine’s Crossover Estate of the Year, for the third time. This is a fantastic car which our customers love and trust year after year, mile after mile. Subaru customers know what it means to be driving one of the safest, most capable and reliable vehicles on the road today.”
