2016 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

  The Subaru XV is just one of many offerings in the small SUV under-$40k segment. However, it is often overlooked for the more fancied, at least per sales figures, Mitsubishi ASX, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and the absurdly named Nissan Qashqai. This is a mistake. I’ve just ticked over 15,000kms in my 2016 Subaru XV 2.0I-S...

The bluetooth has great connectivity and the ability to stream music from your iPhone or device is also a joy. Fuel economy is great averaging around 7...

Lately, I've been conscious of which one I'm leaving behind, but I always come back to the one that is the easiest to drive...

2012 SUBARU XV 2.0i-S Review

Had my white pearl XV since 1/12 and have not been disappointed apart from expected standard features eg auto dim mirror, rain sensing wipers. Love the CVT and not short on power for me unless down low. Beautiful ride and excellent economy (came down from a Forester XT Premium). Has a lot of B's and W's but lacks some that I'd use...
