2017 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

See the full article here. The 2017 Subaru XV range has arrived on sale in a segment that looks a helluva lot different to how it did when the first version launched. Let's wind back the clock. The year was 2012, and Subaru rolled the dice on a pumped up version of the Impreza hatch with some body cladding, funky colours and chunky wheels...

2018 Subaru XV Concept : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

The next-generation, 2018 Subaru XV crossover has just been previewed at the 2016 Geneva motor show by the imaginatively named XV Concept.

Subaru XV Comparisons

Honda HR-V v Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross v Subaru XV comparison

Small crossover SUVs with a predominantly urban focus have taken over the road. Just look around you. But the segment has splintered into a few directions exemplified by the trio you see here. They’re similar in most ways, but differ enough to corner specific subsets...

2017 Subaru XV 2.0i v Mazda CX-3 sTouring AWD comparison

There’s no doubt whatsoever that the small SUV segment is the hottest battle ground in Australia right now – certainly in terms of the market volume that is rushing to it in large numbers. Some manufacturers are so enamoured with the concept, they even have two entrants in the segment – think Audi Q2 and Q3 for example, which effectively sit in very similar parts of the market even though the marketing blurb will claim otherwise...

Subaru Forester, Impreza, XV and BRZ recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2012/13 Impreza, Forester, and XV, along with the 2013 BRZ, over concerns about a defective engine valve spring. According to the company, there's a chance the valve spring will fracture, making the engine stall and not restart.

2014 Subaru XV 2.0i-L review

My beloved 3.0R-B Liberty was starting to get a bit old and was not practical for what I needed daily (Fit the kids, dog in the boot, cheap to run etc). I had to weigh up what I needed in a newer car that was going to fit all my criteria. Unfortunately, I had to rule out a performance car in my budget, as it would have been too old or expensive to run...

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...

2016 Subaru XV 2.0i-S Review

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...

2013 Subaru XV Review

I've been spoilt for choice lately. Three cars in the garage is a great way to start the day and sometimes it's a real challenge to pick which one to drive. There is always the favourite, be it the sentimental machine with a few extra years under the belt, or the brand spanking newbie! 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...
