Subaru XV e-BOXER in Penrith Cumbria
The XV personifies dependability with Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and awesome performance. You can have yours with a 1.6L petrol engine or with a 2.0L Petrol e-Boxer Hybrid. The e-Boxer is a self-charging hybrid powertrain that starts the XV on electric power, with an electric range of around a mile (perfect in stop and start traffic). The result is fuel economy of up to 43mpg combined and a refined drive.
There are two trim levels: SE and SE Premium. An 8” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, LED headlights, heated front seats, a reversing camera and cruise control come as standard. SE Premium models add leather upholstery, a powered sunroof, satellite navigation and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
Forget soft-roaders. The XV is built from tougher stuff, with Subaru’s legendary 4x4 performance baked in. It’s a car that’s purposeful and capable, with LED headlights, roof bars and 17” or 18” alloy wheels finishing it off.
As standard, both engines come with the excellent Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission and Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2.0 e-Boxer kicks out 150PS and 194Nm of torque for a powerful drive.
The XV has a 385-litre or 340-litre boot, depending on engine choice. The interior is incredibly spacious with room for five adults. There are ISOFIX mounting points on both rear outer seats and all models have keyless entry.
Living with it
The XV makes life easier with an electric parking brake, automatic transmission, reversing camera and keyless entry and start. SE Premium models also have satellite navigation and a powered tilt and slide sunroof to open up the cabin.
