Subaru XV refreshed for 2016

Subaru's compact XV crossover is getting a minor exterior restyle, an updated interior and more efficient engines.

Changes to the bumper, grille and headlights can be seen at the front end, while the rear gains LED light clusters and a tailgate spoiler.

Inside, the focus has been on providing a more upmarket ambience. The XV now features better-quality materials, contrast stitching for the upholstery and a selection of metallic and piano black trim pieces.

Equipment levels are enhanced, too. Highlights include a 7.0” colour touchscreen for the infotainment system which responds to pinch and swipe gestures. Furthermore, a rear-view camera is fitted as standard, plus Apple iPhone users can activate Siri Eyes-Free voice control.

Modifications to the 148 bhp (110 kW / 150 PS) 2.0 litre petrol and 145 bhp (108 kW / 147 PS) 2.0 litre diesel four-cylinder engines mean they consume slightly less fuel than before. When specified with a six-speed manual gearbox, the former manages 40.4 mpg (7.0 l/100km) on the combined cycle and the latter achieves 52.3 mpg (5.4 l/100km).

Despite all the upgrades, prices haven't increased. So, with a choice of SE or SE Premium trim grades, the 2016 XV costs from £21,995 to £25,995.
