Premiere of the new Subaru XV

Premiere of the new Subaru XV

Today (13th September) was the world premiere of the new Subaru XV (European specifications) at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. 

The launch of the XV takes Subaru into the compact crossover segment for the first time, combining style with functionality. Jed Thirkell-Subaru Sales Executive at Derek Slack Motors said, “ In this highly competitive segment, the XV offers something different, bringing a whole new level of engineering excellence.

The XV, has achieved its aim in providing a stylish and distinctive crossover with Subaru driving dynamics, combined with high level of functionality and fuel efficiency. 

The XV is a new type of crossover design that combines a stylish, dynamic form with a high body and side cladding to enhance the sense of functionality associated with an SUV.

Equipped with a hexagonal grille and hawk eye headlights, these design features emphasize the unique identity of the newest Subaru cars, while the striking and innovatively designed alloy wheels and cut-away cladding give the XV its sporting appearance.

The corners of the front and rear bumpers were designed with special edges that enhance the aerodynamic performance of the vehicle and also contribute to better fuel efficiency. 

The new, 3rd generation Subaru Boxer engine, introduced this year with a totally new design, is installed in 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol models. Along with the usual merits that horizontally-opposed engines inherently possess, this engine has improved fuel efficiency and exhaust performance. Together with the adoption of the new Lineartronic (CVT), a newly developed 'Auto Start System', the fuel efficiency was further improved. 

A heavily revised version of Subaru's Boxer Diesel, which was specially developed for the European market, is also featured in the XV line-up.”
