To enhance the aerodynamic performance of the Subaru XV, the front and rear bumper corners feature specially designed edges.
Powering the Subaru XV is the new generation Subaru Boxer engine in 1.6 and 2.0 litre models. The engine offers improved fuel efficiency and exhaust performance. Further fuel efficiency comes from the use of the new Lineartronic (CVT) and newly developed "Auto Start Stop System".
The partition windows are integrated into the front doors and the door mirrors are located on the door panels which has resulted in top-level forward visibility with reduced blind angles. The streamlined rear roof edge has been designed to avoid impacting on rear vision.
Alongside SRS driver's and passenger's airbags, SRS side airbags and SRS curtain airbags, SRS driver's knee airbag are included as standard across the Subaru XV model range.
Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)is also installed as standard across the Subaru XV range. The intervention timing of the system has been optimised and incorporates control logic that demonstrates effectiveness in danger avoidance situations.
The VDC system also features a brake assist function, providing the Subaru XV with danger avoidance performance and the driver increased confidence.Published 15 September 2011
