subaru forester and xv available on motability

Subaru UK has announced that the XV and Forester models are now available on the nationwide Motability scheme, accessible to individuals receiving the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance.

The availability of the XV and Forester models as part of the Motability scheme will allow less abled people to lease a new car using their government funded mobility allowance.

Currently available through those Subaru dealers already registered with Motability, Subaru UK will be offering its dealers training courses in conjunction with Motability Operations and is expecting the number of eligible dealers to increase significantly in 2015.

The Forester, which is 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.

They are also among the safest SUVs on the road, their unique symmetrical All-wheel drive system bestowing high levels of grip and traction complimented by five-star Euro NCAP and among the highest ratings for occupant protection.

The Motability scheme 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.

Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director of Subaru UK, commented: “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.”
