LONDON – July 1, 2013: Subaru UK has announced today a mouth-watering 2,300 price reduction on the Subaru XV, making one of the most robust and economical compact crossovers even more affordable.

The price reduction, which has been possible due to a more favourable exchange rate between Pound Sterling and the Japanese Yen, applies to every model in the Subaru XV range, and allows motorists to drive away in a new XV from just 18,995.

With much more than just school-run appeal, the XV is noted for its robust practicality, performance and excellent fuel economy and was named ‘SUV of the Year’ by the judges on 4x4 Magazine and has won industry recognition for its design and safety in Japan and the USA. In Europe, it was Switzerland’s best selling car in August last year, toppling the VW Golf from top spot.

The Subaru XV is unusual in benefiting from permanent All-Wheel Drive as standard. Despite this, the 2.0D returns a very competitive 50.4mpg (combined cycle) and 146g/km CO2. Its high ground clearance contributes to the car’s genuine off-road ability, while Subaru’s trademark low centre of gravity aids the car’s sporty handling on all roads.

Standard specification is generous across the range with all cars being fitted with front, side, curtain and knee airbags, front passenger airbag auto-disable, 17-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, heated front seats, wiper de-icers, CD player and a comprehensive Multi-Function Display. The popular SE model also gets cruise control, folding door mirrors, dual-zone air conditioning, rear view safety camera, Bluetooth, and rear privacy glass.

The XV’s five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating combines with 90% rating for child occupant protection - the best in its segment - as well as the highest possible rating in the USA’s demanding Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests. A five-year, 100,000 mile warranty completes the package for buyers.

Haydn Davies, Marketing Director, Subaru UK, said: “Compared to rivals, the XV is one of the most robust and most economical cars available. We have taken the first opportunity to re-price the model given the changes to exchange rates and believe the price reduction now gives customers the greatest value for their money.”
