What is it?
The 2018 Subaru XV is the Japanese brand’s latest attempt to up sales in Blighty.
Excellent handling, technology, safety
A whole redesign and new global platform means the new XV is a complete step-change for the model. The Subaru XV rocks a lower profile than rivals, offering improved stability and handling.
Coupled with a commendable effort integrating technology, it’s less cookie cutter and this definitely adds to the XV’s appeal. On price, it’s arguably less competitive since its £24,995 on-road price tag is at the top end of many rivals’ highest spec.
That said, the Subaru XV’s standard spec falls just short of more luxury marques in the same segment.
