18 model 2017 Subaru XV Review

this Is The All-new Subaru XV A Big Leap Forward For The Japanese Brand And A Vital Vehicle In The Scheme Of Things Small SUVs Are Bigger Business Now Than When The Previous Model Launched Years Ago. So, With Heaps Of New Competition Does The New XV Do Enough To Stand Out When The Original Subaru XV Launched Back In 2012 There Were Ten Entrants In The Small SUV Segment Today Though There's More Than Double That.

So, The Significance Of This Car Needing To Be Good Is Pretty Clear The Comparative Lack Of Competition In The Segment In 2012 Was Arguably Why The First-generation XB Was Such A Success It Was Like A Diet Subaru SUV And It Still Had All-wheel-drive As Standard And That's Still The Case This Time Around In Fact Subaru Reckons This New Generation XV Is More Off Roadable Than Ever Before. So, We Figured We'd Better Test That Claim Well It Gets The Brand Symmetrical All-wheel Drive System, But This Time Around The XV Has Borrowed Some Hardware From Its Big Brother The Forester That Includes The Ex Mode Off-road System Which Modulates The Cars Electronics To Maintain Better Control On Loose And Slippery Surfaces There's A Hill Descent Control System For Making Your Way Down Scary Inclines And That Also Works In Reverse And The Car Has 220 Millimeters Of Ground Clearance Which Is Plenty For A Vehicle Like This Hill Descent Control Works By Modulating The Brakes As You're Going Down The Hill And Breaking Down A Steep Hill Like This Is Vital Because, If You Lock Up You'll Lose Control Of Your Steering Now That Sort Of Technology Separates The XV From Some Of The Pretender SUVs In The Small SUV Segment The All-new XV Mirrors The. Impreza Upon Which Is Faced With Much More Space And A Far More Upmarket Cabin Than The Model It Replaces It's Easily Enough Space Back Here For A Couple Of Six-foot Adults Or A Couple Of Kids There's Dual.

ISOFIX Outboard Anchor Points And There's Three Top Tether Feed Points As Well The Biggest Negative Of This Back Seat Is This Middle Rear Seatbelts A Bit Sticky To Operate When You Do Get It To Work You've Got To Feed It Through Here Then Feed It Across It's Just Painful. I Don't Know Why Subaru Can't Integrate A Middle Rear Seat Belt Like. So, Many Other Car Manufacturers Managed To Do The Boot Isn't Massive Either Subaru Says It's Just 310 Liters In Capacity Which Puts It A Heck Of A Lot Smaller Than Plenty Of Hatchbacks On The Market Not To Mention Some Of The Small SUVs It's Up Against Still The Boot Has A Bigger Opening Than The Previous Car Which Makes Loading In Prams Luggage And Recreational Items A Little Bit Easier Up Front You Get Subarus New Bright And Shiny Infotainment System Which Is.

So, Much Better Than The Screen In The Old Car You Get The Latest Smartphone Mirroring Technology And Integrated Sat-nav With An Eight Inch Screen In The Higher Spec Model, If You Buy A Lower Spec Model You Do Get A Slightly Smaller Screen Connecting Your Phone To The Car Is A Cinch And It Reconnects Quickly As Well, If You Prefer To Use The Latest Smartphone Mirroring Apple Carplay And Android Auto That Makes Living With The Card Just That Little Bit Easier Also Means And Keep Your Hands Off The Phone With Its Big Icons The Screen Is A Simple System To Use For Anyone, But It's Not Just The Infotainment System That's Taken A Step Up The Materials Are Better The Finishers Are More Special And In All Honesty It Feels Like A Car That's Two Generations Newer Than The Existing Model And The Good News Is The Drive Experience Is Better On The Road As Well The New XV Has The Same 2-liter Four-cylinder Boxer Engine As You've Seen In The. Impreza It Has 115 Kilowatts Of Power And 196 Newton Meters Of Torque Which Is A Bit Measly For This Class And It Feels It On The Road With The Continuously Variable Transmission Or CVT Feeling Like It's Robbing It The Power Here That It's Not A Very Pleasant Sound, But You'll Hear It A Lot Because The Engine Lacks The Torque Or Pulling Power To Move The Car Along As Effortlessly As Some Of Its Rivals. I Thoroughly Recommend You Take An X V For An Extended Test Drive, If You're Looking At Buying One Just To Figure Out Whether You Can Live With Its Drivetrain Particularly In Stop-start Traffic And Up Steep Hills The Suspension Is Considerably More Refined To Dealing With Bumps With Much More Polish Than The Previous Generation Version Did In The Top Spec XV You Get Pretty Much All The Safety You Could Want Including A Camera System Which Will Control The Adaptive Cruise Control There's Also Blind Spot Monitoring And Rear Cross-traffic Alert And Will Apply The Brakes, If It Thinks You're Going To Hit Something.

So, It's Got Plenty Of Stuff, But As You Can Probably Tell The Ride Can Be A Little Bit Sharp Over Rough Surfaces Particularly At Lower Speeds While At First Glance The All-new XV May Not Look Too Different From The Model It Replaces It Is In Fact Based On An All-new Architecture Its Headlights Are More Streamlined And While The Cladding And Chunky Wheels Remain It Certainly Is A More Mature Looking, If Not As Playful Take On The Theme Of The High Riding Hatch. So, Is The New XE And Improvement You Bet, But Has It Done Enough To Stand Out In The Increasingly Busy Small SUV Segment Well The Answer To That Is A Bit More Yes And No, If You Need Lots Of Power Or A Really Big Boot You Should Probably Look At Something Else In The Segment, But, If All-wheel Drive And A Nice Interior Are Your Priorities You Should Definitely Take A Look At The New XV.
