Subaru has announced a £2,300 price reduction on the XV compact crossover model, made possible through a more favourable exchange rate.
The price reduction applies to every model in the Subaru XV range, and brings the entry point to the range down to £18,995.
The Subaru XV has permanent all-wheel drive as standard and the 2.0D returns 50.4mpg on the combined cycle and 146g/km of 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 responsive handling.
Standard specification includes 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 has a five-star Euro NCAP crash safety rating combined with 90% rating for child occupant protection and a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty is also standard.
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."
