Subaru UK is pleased to welcome the all-new Subaru XV to its sturdy SUV range, available now in all official Subaru dealerships across the UK and Northern Ireland.

Starting from £24,995, the all-new XV has already turned heads claiming the Best In Class title for the Safest Small Family Car in the Euro NCAP 2017 full year results. The combination of Subaru’s bespoke EyeSight driver assistance safety technology, included as standard, and the addition of the new Subaru Global Platform, make the all-new one of the safest new cars on and off the road.

Flexible across a number of terrains, the all-new XV allows drivers to maximise the crossover capabilities with minimal effort. With X-Mode and Hill Climb Assist featuring in the new models, the XV has been built to conquer everything from mountains and mudslides to rivers and roads; proving it truly is better where it matters.

Featuring the iconic Subaru Boxer Engine, the new XV offers drivers the choice of two engine variants, a 2.0 litre and 1.6 litre petrol CVT, perfectly paired for use with the symmetrical all-wheel drive system, made famous by the Subaru marque.

The all-new XV offers improved dynamic quality, handling and performance, with improved rigidity flexibility and core strength provided by the Subaru Global Platform. Alongside technical improvements both interior and exterior design details have been updated to offer both style and substance – culminating in a vehicle that’s engineered as a true crossover SUV.

Subaru Global Platform - The all-new 2018 XV is the first model to feature the new Subaru Global Platform (SGP), designed to deliver higher levels of safety performance, driving enjoyment and ride comfort. The SGP brings significant enhancement to the body and chassis rigidity (front lateral flexural rigidity +90%, torsional rigidity +70%, front suspension rigidity +70%, rear sub frame rigidity +100%) and impact energy absorption is improved by 40% over present models.

Subaru EyeSight -  Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assistance technology, which is also fitted as standard on the new XV and Impreza, scored highly in the Autonomous Emergency Braking section at Euro NCAP testing, with both cars and pedestrians. The EyeSight Driver Assist technology is a set of two digital cameras that monitor the traffic movement to warn the driver of a threat ahead and to apply pre-collision braking in emergency situations, in order to avoid or at least to mitigate the collision. Subaru EyeSight also observes the lateral support functions, warning the driver of unintentional lane departure and assisting the driver in keeping the travelling lane

Not all four-wheel drive cars are equal and one manufacturer that stands apart is Subaru, the symmetrical All-Wheel Drive specialists who strive to provide driving enjoyment and peace of mind in all their cars.

All Subaru cars come equipped with Symmetrical-All Wheel Drive (with the exception of the BRZ sports coupe) and are paired to Subaru Boxer engines, which are having their 50th anniversary this year.  This combination provides excellent control and grip in all situations from a snowy mountain side to a rain-sodden B road.

The Subaru range consists of the British Touring Car Championship challenging Levorg sports tourer, which is the newest addition to the stable, followed by the Impreza hatchback, XV crossover, the rugged best-selling Forester SUV and Outback which fuses SUV capability with estate space.

The brand’s Motorsport heritage hasn’t been forgotten, with the 300PS WRX STI as the performance flagship and the BRZ sports coupe carrying on the sporting hallmarks of Subaru.
