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.
The Subaru XV is built in Japan and is then shipped to Australia.
The 2021 Subaru XV has a braked towing capacity from 1250kg to 1400kg depending on the variant and an unbraked towing capacity of 650kg.
Subaru suggests that owners service their Subaru XV every 12 months or 12,000km, whichever comes first.

The variants of the 2021 Subaru XV use Premium Unleaded Petrol or Premium Unleaded/electric.
