The Subaru XV is a new type of crossover SUV that not only projects a great presence despite its compact sporty design, but also boasts a range of new features never seen before in an SUV. While the proportions of the Subaru XV convey a sense of elegance and lightness, its exterior design combines high ground clearance, large tire wheels, and all of the other features one would normally expect to find in an SUV.

Subaru is confident that the Subaru XV will thoroughly satisfy the needs of a diverse range of customers.
The fundamental product concept that Subaru adopted for the Subaru XV can be expressed in two simple words - "Urban Adventure." In specific terms, a vehicle that would be perfectly suited to exciting, lively use in a city landscape. Thus, Subaru strove to optimally balance enhanced basic performance factors in the form of fuel efficiency and enjoyable driving (Fun to Drive) with a stylish, highly distinctive exterior design.

Subaru XV: Model line-up

1.6i: When compared with the 1.5-liter engine in Subaru's current models, the newly developed 1.6-liter engine in this base model boosts output in all speed ranges while also realizing a much better balance between fuel efficiency and the thrill of rapid response to operation of the accelerator.

2.0i: In addition to being light on its feet, this model simultaneously delivers class-topping fuel efficiency and a luxurious ride. Meanwhile, it boasts a high level of torque in the low- to mid-speed range which is the most frequently used in everyday, practical situations. This base model has been equipped with a highly responsive engine capable of delivering a sensation of instant acceleration, even when the accelerator is only slightly depressed.

2.0D: Fitted with a horizontally-opposed diesel engine that is lightweight, compact, and uniquely Subaru, the 2.0D offers a high degree of torque even at low speeds and excellent response to operation of the accelerator. This base model also boasts excellent fuel efficiency with low CO2 emissions.

Spacious and comfortable interior space

An ample wheelbase was secured without having to increase the length of the vehicle. As a result of moving the A-pillars forward, the passenger compartment conveys a wonderful sense of spaciousness. The space gained from extending the wheelbase has been used to give more knee room to rear-seat occupants, who can now also place their feet inside the large open areas underneath the front seats. Thanks to these enhancements, the new Subaru XV has more rear-seat knee room than any other vehicle in its class. Naturally, this contributes to a higher level of comfort.

Improvements to the internal structure of the doors enabled to increased space in the transverse direction inside the passenger compartment. With more shoulder and elbow room, the driver and passengers benefit from best-in-class spaciousness.

The bottom edge of the A-pillars is also moved forward to accentuate the sense of space. In addition, the field of view has been made as unobstructed as possible by optimizing the cross-section of the pillar itself and providing triangular quarter glass in front of the rear-view mirrors. Meanwhile, the heater unit and ducts are also repositioned in the pursuit of a more roomy feeling interior, lowering the top of the instrument panel in the process. Gaps between the side sill and floor have also been closed. And higher seat positions that are more typical of an SUV also make it easier to get into and out of the vehicle.
