A new New Subaru XV is heading for a debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, built on the new Impreza platform and expected to be more road friendly.
Subaru has tried really hard with the XV Crossover.
Revealed just over five years ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Subaru has pulled out all the tricks they can to get the XV to sell, at times looking a bit desperate in the process.
But now it’s time for an all new Subaru XV, and it’ll arrive at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Based on the Subaru Global Platform – the same platform as the new Impreza – the new XV looks set to be a bit more school-run friendly and a bit less off-road focussed, although it will come with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.
Expect an improved interior with more technology, a car that’s stiffer and a bit more dynamic, and with engine choices much the same as currently available in the XV.
But what could be on the cards is a plug-in hybrid version, especially as the new platform is designed for electrification and Mitsubishi has had such huge success with its Outlander PHEV.
No doubt we’ll have more on the new Subaru XV between now and its debut on 7 March as Subaru work the tease machine further.
