Subaru has unveiled its new XV urban SUV which will compete for sales with models like the Mitsubishi ASX and Ford Kuga.
The XV will sit below the Forrester in the Subaru range and will feature three engines, a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol and a reworked boxer diesel.
Start stop will be included, as well as a new CVT automatic gearbox.
Subaru Ireland will preview the Subaru XV to customers in November 2011 with pre selling, and first deliveries mid-January 2012. Retail prices are expected to be announced shortly.
