2017 Subaru XV – Distinctive small SUV

Managing Director of Subaru Australia comment on their latest launch and the small SUV market.

In 2012Subaru launched the XV onto the Australian market, their smallest car in their current fleet.

The latest XV is over 90% changed from the previous model with a few extra off road features but a host of comfort improvements.

Subarus are car like in their on-road performance and competent in their off-road capability.

Where does the new XV fit in that continuum.

Colin Christie is the Managing director of Subaru Australia.

I asked him if the new XV was a toughening up of the vehicle.

And Overdrive has a new feature on our web site. A video of our first impressions from a car launch, in this case the Subaru XV.
