Subaru has unveiled the all-new XV at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. XV is a crossover which combines a compact body wîth SÚV capability based on Subaru's distinctive Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system and rugged yet sporty design, offering versatility in both urban areas and the countryside.

For the first re-design since launch in 2012, XV will be built on Subaru's completely revamped Subaru Global Platform architecture, significantly enhancing the body and chassis rigidity and strength.

The new Subaru XV also offers world-class collision safety and hazard avoidance performance, as well as more responsive handling and ride comfort while enhancing the Subaru XV's unique design and off road capability. The model is the first strategic offering in Europe under the company's Prominence 2020 mid-term management vision which delivers 'enjoyment and peace of mind' for customers.

Key Features of All-New Subaru XVXV's unique design is filled wîth rugged and sporty character, incorporating the Subaru design philosophy DYNAMIC x SOLID. Functional enhancements have also been included wîth a high-quality interior and exterior finish.

◾The Wide & Low stance provides a sporty impression and adds to the Subaru family look, from the hexagonal grille to the hawk-eye headlights. The design flows from the grille through to the rear, providing a united scheme. The grille design and matte black cladding on the bumper elude to XV's rugged character and SÚV functionality.
◾The character line runs from front wheel arch to rear shoulder and rises energetically; adding dynamism to the side profile. The extended wheel arches suggest the intent and capability provided by Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and is finished off wîth matte black cladding.
◾The Wide & Low stance applied to the front design carries over to the rear combination lights. The shoulder silhouette wîth black roof spoiler are juxtaposed against the rugged matte black cladding on the rear bumper, playing up to XV's versatile character.
◾The new model also combines the Subaru performance essentials of superior aerodynamics and visibility wîth advanced styling.
◾Newly designed alloy wheels embody the Subaru XV's sporty, casual, and rugged character.
◾New exterior colours 'Cool Grey Khaki' and 'Sunshine Orange' have been added, which contrast wîth the matte black cladding adding to XV's active and functional image.

◾The body-hugging seats have been revised for improved quality and feature grey trim to enhance XV's character.
◾In the centre of the instrument panel is an 8.0-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, wîth smartphone connectivity.
◾Detailed orange stitching on the instrument panel complements the cabin's quality.
◾In addition to enhanced interior design, signature Subaru attributes have been further strengthened; excellent all-round visibility, spacious cabin, and cargo room.

Enhanced dynamic driving performance paired wîth off road capability

All-new XV has been improved in several areas to achieve an enhanced dynamic feel. Steering and pedal feedback, vehicle response, noise and vibration have been refined to achieve a positive driver experience. XV's impressive off road capability has also been enhanced wîth X-MODE.

Body & Chassis
◾The new platform dramatically increases rigidity throughout the body and chassis (70-100% increase over present models). Substantial improvements to the suspension system are incorporated, and help achieve a lower centre of gravity allowing precise §teering control. Increased precision allows for superior straight line stability and cornering performance whilst maintaining 220mm ground clearance.
◾Torsional rigidity has been improved by 70% over present models by optimising frame structure and joints. This distributes resonance and distortion throughout the body, reducing vibrations.
◾Suspension mounts are more rigid, improving absorption without twisting the chassis and providing a smooth and comfortable drive. Body roll of the vehicle has been reduced by 50% compared to present models.
◾The §teering gear ratio has been modified from 14:1 to 13:1 compared to the previous model, offering superior drivability.
◾Active Torque Vectoring enhances turning and §teering performance.
◾Electronic parking brake has been added for more convenience.

All-Wheel Drive control
◾In addition to Subaru's unique Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, new XV is equipped wîth X-MODE. X-MODE is designed to increase drivability by optimising integrated control of the engine, All-Wheel Drive system and brakes to provide additional control when tyres slip and lose traction on a slippery road surface, including when descending hills.

◾80% of the parts on the FB series 2.0-litre Direct Injection Boxer engine have been revamped compared to previous naturally aspirated engines. The new engine is lighter, delivering more power and improved fuel economy.
◾The improved Lineartronic greatly enhances ratio coverage and lightness to boost acceleration performance and fuel economy. As well as employing full auto-step shift control, the Subaru XV features a 7-speed manual mode function for a more engaging driving experience.
◾Engine and transmission noise and vibration are greatly reduced, for a more dynamic experience.

Subaru's safety performance has continuously been highly rated by third-party organizations. The new Subaru XV has adopted technologies to further enhance its safety including the new platform and the advanced preventative safety system, to ensure XV will achieve high safety ratings.

Active safety
◾The new platform achieves a centre of gravity that is 5 mm lower than present models. Together wîth the major improvements in rigidity and the evolution of the suspension system, this lower centre of gravity offers outstanding hazard avoidance capabilities on a level wîth a high-performance sports car.

Passive safety
◾Impact energy absorption is improved by 40% over present models by using a frame structure that absorbs more energy and high-tensile steel plates.

Preventive safety
◾EyeSight, Subaru's innovative and highly acclaimed driver assist technology, delivers extremely reliable preventive safety and assists drivers through features such as Pre-Collision Braking Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keep Assist function.
◾The new High Beam Assist employs a monocular camera, automatically switching from high to low beam as per road conditions.
◾Steering Responsive Headlights move the beam right or left whilst cornering or at junctions to illuminate the direction of travel. The Subaru XV uses two headlight controls for the first time, dramatically improving night-time visibility and the recognition capabilities of EyeSight.
◾The Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection has been fitted, offering blind spot detection, lane change assistance and reversing assistance to enhance all-round preventive safety.
