Facelifted Subaru XV available to order in the UK from March
The facelifted 2021 Subaru XV crossover rocking and rolling into the UK with two trim levels – SE or SE Premium. Look closely and you’ll find a redesigned front bumper and front grill plus a subtly reshaped front fog lamp bezel that surrounds the LED fog lights. The redesign focuses on giving the XV a more sporty and rugged look including newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels. There is also the option of two new vibrant and unique colours to choose from: Plasma Yellow and Horizon Blue. The compact crossover powered by a 2.0 litre horizontally-opposed petrol engine with motor-assist e-BOXER.
Standard equipment on both trims include Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Subaru’s bespoke EyeSight driver assistance safety technology, automatic LED headlights equipped with high beam assist, 18” alloy wheels, heated front seats, an intuitive 8” multifunction colour touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ plus Keyless Entry & Push Button Start System.
Customers can upgrade to the SE Premium for £33,665 which includes all the aforementioned equipment, along with leather seats, 8-way power-adjustable driver sear, satellite navigation and sunroof. As standard on both trim levels, customers will also now get the added benefit of extra engineering and advanced driver assist technology for improved comfort, drivability and safety.
Subaru have now introduced enhanced X-MODE and SI-Drive functions for the facelifted XV e-BOXER. X-MODE now features a dual function button to select [SNOW/DIRT] mode for slippery surfaces covered with snow, dirt, or gravel, or [D.SNOW/MUD] mode.
Exclusive to e-BOXER models is the improved SUBARU Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive) which allows the driver to select engine and transmission characteristics according to their driving style. Select Sport Mode for immediate throttle response or Intelligent Mode for more fuel-efficient power delivery.
Subaru have also improved the comfort and handling even further by developing new Coil Springs and Dampers which reduces the amount of body movement for a much smoother ride.
