The Subaru XV was one of the first compact SUVs on Australian roads. With its eye-catching design and super cool wheels, the XV gave birth to a whole new car category. It took SUV capability, big car technology and performance and molded it into a small, sleek, irresistible package perfect for urban adventures. It never cut corners. And it never will. The Subaru XV delivers category leading comfort and cutting-edge safety and entertainment technologies to help you and the ones you love make the most of every moment. There's plenty of room inside (be sure to sit in the back seat to experience the generous legroom) thanks to some very clever design. And it's loaded head-to-toe with smart features to make every day, a great day. Built for fun and friends. The Subaru XV is made for you.
The Subaru XV is equipped with either a 6.5" or 8" colour LCD screen you can touch, swipe and pinch, just like your smartphone. Putting everything you need, your contacts, phone controls, maps, music, messages and useful vehicle analytical information, right there at your fingertips. Plus on your steering wheel there's buttons to activate voice-control, make phone calls, turn on music and more - all without taking your eyes off the road and hands off the wheel.
Australian roads have never been busier, the weather is becoming more unpredictable and driver distraction is increasing. That's why safety is more important than ever. Under the skin of every Subaru XV is hidden engineering brilliance. With a ring-shaped steel safety cell that's designed to absorb and direct the impact of the force around the cabin, rather than through it. Plus every XV comes equipped with the superior traction and control of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and 7, yes 7, SRS airbags - dual front, dual front side, dual curtain and knee airbag for driver.
X-Mode enhances off-road driving with better control over components like the engine, All-Wheel Drive and specialised brakes. For example, the Hill Descent Control feature keeps the vehicle at a constant speed on steep, slippery downhill surfaces.

Designed for the pure enjoyment of driving, the 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection Boxer engine has been finely tuned to deliver optimum power, torque, exhaust emissions, fuel economy and idling stability via Subaru's Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS). And because it sits low and flat in the engine bay, Subaru XV has a low centre of gravity which means better road stability and much more responsive drive.
