LONDON – May 20, 2013: Subaru UK is making its XV compact crossover even more affordable by introducing an interest-free finance offer on some variants of the model and significant price reductions on others.

For a limited period*, buyers of the XV 2.0-litre diesel can take advantage of three years’ 0% credit. Separately from this, and with no time limitations, all XVs with 1.6-litre petrol engines have been reduced in price by 1,300.

The interest-free finance offer – for the XV 2.0D S, 2.0D SE and 2.0D SE Lux Premium models – includes delivery, registration plates, 12 months’ road fund licence and first registration fee. As an example, the 24,295 XV 2.0D S will require a deposit of 5,876 followed by 36 monthly payments of 295 and a final payment of 7,799.

The four XV variants with 1.6-litre petrol engines, which previously ranged in price from 21,295 to 24,715, now range from 19,995 to 23,415.

Noted for its practicality, performance and fuel economy, the XV was acclaimed as ‘SUV of the Year’ by the expert judges on 4x4 Magazine, ahead of rivals from Audi, Kia, Mazda, Nissan and Volkswagen.

All XVs offer a high level of standard equipment and Subaru’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The XV has a five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating and one of the highest scores for child protection (90%) in its segment. It also has high ground clearance but with one of the lowest centres of gravity for an SUV, which contributes to its keen handling and road-holding..

Haydn Davies, Marketing Director, Subaru UK, said: “The XV has been equally well received by loyal Subaru buyers and customers new to the brand. Keener pricing and zero-per cent credit can only further strengthen its appeal.”
