Subaru UK has announced that the XV and Forester models are now available on the nationwide Motability scheme.
The Forester (Subaru’s best-selling model) and XV are well suited to the scheme, as like all Subaru vehicles they have gained hard-earned reputations for practicality, ease of use, build quality and reliability. The two models are also among the safest SUVs on the road with its all-wheel drive system and five-star Euro NCAP rating.
Currently available through those Subaru dealers already registered with Motability but Subaru UK will be offering its dealers training courses in conjunction with Motability and is expecting the number of eligible dealers to increase significantly in 2015.
The Motability scheme, accessible to individuals receiving the higher rate mobility component of the disability living allowance, has helped more than three million people into a new vehicle, with benefits including insurance, servicing, maintenance and full breakdown assistance. Motability is the largest fleet in Europe, currently operating a fleet of over 630,000 vehicles.
Managing director of Subaru UK Paul Tunnicliffe said: “We are pleased to be able to offer two of our most practical cars under Motability, a scheme which benefits thousands of people in the UK every year.
“The Forester and XV are particularly well-suited with their excellent safety and reliability record, high levels of practicality and ‘go-anywhere’ all-wheel drive abilities.”
