5 Reasons to Buy Subaru XV 2.0i-S
When the XV was launched in 2012, it began the trend of the small SUV, so experts and those looking to buy Subaru XV models have been keen to see what changes were being made in the 2016 model refresh. The update has new features, technology, and styling, so it is sure to appeal to anyone considering a Subaru XV for sale. If you need further convincing, here are five reasons why this model is a great buy.
With many vehicles on the road sharing a cookie cutter appearance, the Subaru XV should appeal with its unique aesthetics. The model has retained the sedan “face” inherited from its Impreza heritage. This means that the XV has a heavily raked windscreen and sloping boney but the tough features such as the bumper and wheel arch trim, make it look 100% a rugged SUV.
Genuine All Wheel Drive:
All Wheel Drive is one of the primary reasons to buy Subaru XV. XV drivers should note that this model also features the renowned AWD. While many SUVs promote off roading capability, AWD is designed to provide consistent grip regardless of the road surface. AWD is a full time system which monitors each of the wheels, adjusting the drive accordingly to provide optimum traction. Although this is fantastic on gravel and dirt, it adds additional protection and safety when the roads are slippery and wet.
High Ground Clearance:
One of the common reasons for buying an SUV is that these vehicles have a high ground clearance. If you’re heading down challenging roads or tracks, extra clearance can be very beneficial. The Subaru XV ground clearance is 220 mm. While this is not the highest in the small SUV segment, it is close to hardcore four wheel drive models. For example, the Toyota Fortuner has a ground clearance of 225 mm.
Functional Yet Stylish Cabin:
Many small SUV models are based on their city hatchback equivalent. This shared platform means that often the cabins are somewhat cheap and cheerful. However, the XV has a stylish and refined cabin, which is still completely functional. Nice touches include the carefully considered dash with an instrument cluster which is nothing short of elegant. There is also a touchscreen, which is flush mounted for optimum aesthetics. You will also find that there are pockets and storage bins throughout the cabin, so all your gadgets can be neatly stored away.
The competition in the small SUV segment is tough, with many models priced to sell. Despite this, the XV manages to stand out from the crowd offering excellent value. With standard features such as reverse camera, heated front seats, power driver’s seat, climate control, automatic wipers, sunroof and 7.0 inch touchscreen. To sweeten the deal, the model is supplied with a three year unlimited kilometre warranty, 12 months of roadside assistance and capped price servicing.
