Subaru XV

Launched in 2017, the second-generation Subaru XV – known as Crosstrek elsewhere – follows the same formula as its predecessor and the Impreza XV and RV before it: take one Impreza hatch, give it slightly butcher styling, increase the ride height, and market it as an SUV.

It's proved to be a winning formula for Subaru, with the Japanese company selling more than twice as many XV models in 2019 than it did of the Impreza sedan and hatch. 

The Subaru XV range largely mirrors that of the Impreza, down to a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine under the bonnet. It does, however, have a unique model: like the larger Forester, it offers a hybrid four-cylinder powertrain.
