It barely six months and the concept XV car that Subaru launched recently is now a reality.

Thanks to the inclusion of characteristic touches from the Impreza, such as the hexagonal grille and hawk eye-style headlights, the Subaru XV has an overall appealing design.

The corners of the front and rear bumpers have been designed with special edges that enhance the car’s aerodynamic performance and better fuel efficiency.
Instead of placing the turbo intercooler duct for diesel models inside an opening above the engine (like with other previous Subaru models), it has been neatly integrated under the hood.

|Powerful ‘Hawk Eye’ headlamps|

The engine has a total output of 148hp. It consumes 7 liters of fuel for every 100 kilometers covered. The other is the XV 2.0i version. This has a 2.0 litre Boxer petrol engine and gives out around 180 hp. The last version is the XV 2.0D which comes fitted with a Boxer diesel engine. Connected to the engines is a six-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission system.
|Plenty of storage space|
|Aux and USB ports|
|Enough room for five|
The front seats have a higher seatbacks, increased lumbar support and cushions that more effectively distribute pressure. There are also enough places to store plastic drink bottles and numerous compartments located in and around the centre console hold all manner of personal items, such as phones, USB drives and MP3 players.

|AWD System in action|
A computer ensures the car reacts to driving conditions such as acceleration, climbing, and turning by adjusting the front-rear torque distribution in real time. Whenever slipping of the front wheels is detected, the system increases the amount of power being distributed to the rear wheels, thus ensuring sufficient grip.
