Subaru has slashed £2,300 off every XV model in the range as of 1st July. The price reduction has been made possible due to a more favorable exchange rate between the Pound Sterling and Japanese Yen.
Buyers are now able to drive away in a brand new 112bhp 1.6-litre petrol-powered Subaru XV S from £18,995. Prices for the more powerful 148bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine models start from £21,995 and rise to £27,925 depending on spec.
The XV comes fitted with permanent all-wheel drive as standard, and when fitted with the 145bhp 2.0-litre diesel, it's still capable of 50mpg and emits 146g/km of CO2.
This price cut means the Subaru XV now seriously undercuts more premium SUV crossover rivals such as the BMW X1 with around a £2,500 saving over equivalent models and puts the XV in a better position to compete with more realistic rivals like the VW Tiguan.
The XV comes as standard with 17-inch alloys, daytime running lights, heated front seats, wiper de-icers and front, side, curtain and knee airbags. The more premium SE models come with additional cruise control, electric mirrors, dual-zone air conditioning, rear view safety camera, Bluetooth and privacy glass.
All XV models also come with Subaru’s five-year 100,000 mile warranty.
