Subaru XV

(2018 - present)

The Subaru XV is a medium-sized crossover estate/SUV, based on the platform of the Subaru Impreza. The current model is the second generation, and was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show before going on sale in the UK the following winter.

The XV has received mixed reviews from the UK automotive media, with mostly poor and average scores. There has been considerable praise for the XV’s off-road ability and good levels of safety kit, but criticism for its on-road dynamics and expensive price compared to rivals.
