Subaru’s new XV crossover is priced from £21,295 for entry level 1.6i S and rises to £29,995 for the range-topping 2.0D SE Lux Premium.
Every XV is equipped with the core Subaru technologies – Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a Boxer engine.
Subaru believes the XV will satisfy the needs of existing customers, while also attracting new consumers to the brand.
Three Euro V-compliant Boxer engines are offered with the new XV: 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol, and 2.0-litre diesel. The 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines develop 112bhp and 148bhp respectively, while the 2.0-litre diesel produces 145bhp and 350Nm.
The XV is available with a choice of either a five and six-speed manual or a six-speed CVT automatic (petrol only).
The 2.0 diesel XV is likely to be the best selling model in the UK. It offers 50.4mpg and emits 146g/km of CO2.
Entry-level S models feature ABS, traction control, Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control (SVDC), front, side, curtain and knee airbags, 17-inch alloy wheels, daytime LED running lights and automatic air conditioning as standard.
SE models add cruise control, rear-view camera, Bluetooth functionality and USB/iPod connectivity.
Meanwhile, top-of-the-range SE Lux Premium models also come with a sunroof, keyless smart entry, push-button start, leather seats and satellite navigation.
All 2.0-litre models are fitted with roof rails.
Petrol-powered XV models benefit from Subaru’s Auto Start Stop System as standard
