Subaru XV … with a touch of Special Edition

If you are looking for a small SUV with all the mod-cons and an element of wow it’s time to take a look at the 2016 SUBARU XV 2.0I SPECIAL EDITION.

Why the special edition? Well originally released in 2012, this updated model brings new styling, features and technology all while continuing to be powered by an 110kW/196Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.

And that’s not all. Actually it’s not even close. If it’s a different look you’re after, Subaru really did a number on this car. The XV has a sedan front end with its long slopping bonnet and heavily raked windscreen, then hits at the hard core heartstrings on the back end, lifted up and toughened up with its distinctive alloy wheels.

And if it’s a 4WD you want – well, the all – wheel drive in this vehicle ensures a more consistent grip on surfaces. Keep in mind many other SUV’s in this segment are front-drive only, so if you are keen on hitting the back roads this Subaru offers the surefootedness you may require.

“The XV’s all-wheel drive system is a full-time one that monitors each wheel and adjusts the drive going to them to makes each gets the best possible traction. It’s great for dirt and gravel, but where Subaru’s all-wheel drive will be of most use is as an active safety system by adding another layer of protection on wet and slippery roads. The grip and balance the system brings to driving is excellent.” Carsguide

Not only does this vehicle offer all-wheel drive but also has a higher ground clearance for, you guessed it, the 4WD fanatics out there.  The XV has a ground clearance of 220mm. This is not only one of the highest ground clearances in the small SUV class but it comes very close to that a lot of hardcore four-wheel drives such as Toyota’s Fortuner which has a clearance of 225mm.

If you’re thinking that you’re not really the off-roading adventure type (but would like to give the impression that you are) then the cool features this SUV offers will really tick your boxes. Included in the 2.0I SPECIAL EDITION is a 7-inch touchscreen, satnav, reversing camera, sports seats with orange stitch, auto wipers, climate control and sunroof…just to name drop a few.
