Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru in the region, is proud to present the Subaru XV, a new generation crossover model that redefines and blends exceptional SUV practicality with a fashionable form.

The Subaru XVs meant for the Singapore market will be imported from Japan, with the 2.0i Premium model being the first to grace our shores.

The Subaru XV 2.0i Premium comes with the all-new Subaru Boxer engine, providing excellent acceleration response with a high level of torque even at low speeds. Already in its third generation, Subaru’s highly acclaimed horizontally opposed engine now features a long-stroke design for better fuel efficiency. Thanks to the integration of Subaru’s unique symmetrical AWD (All-Wheel Drive) system, the drive delivers a sense of stability that would not normally be expected of a high-body vehicle.

The 2.0-litre DOHC Boxer engine with Lineartronic CVT (continuous variable transmission) outflanks the competition terms of compactness and overall coverage, making it possible for drivers to switch from traditional automatic-transmission vehicles without any sense of unease. Improved Active Valve Control System (AVCS) and an optimised intake also provides for a generous amount of low-end torque, ensuring fine acceleration, whatever the terrain may be.

With a low centre-of-gravity, the XV delivers an unexpectedly smooth ride, considering its body height. The playful XV design is characterised by a fusion of powerful lower body motif and a stylish urban form. Just like running shoes, it achieves a fusion of casual and function, with a dash of fashion.

The new introduction underscores Subaru's commitment to 'Confidence in Motion' - a promise of engineering excellence, safety and pleasure, that moves with the times.

The new model was unveiled at its world premier at the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011, prefaced by the unveiling of the design concept in Shanghai last April. The concept was received favourably globally which lauded its distinctive and trendy design and blend of a crossover-like commanding silhouette and an urban friendly image.

Since then, the new Subaru XV 2.0i Premium has been awarded the highest five-star rating by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) for its 2011 overall safety performance test.

The new Subaru XV 2.0i Premium will be available from December 2011, at both Subaru showrooms at 25 Leng Kee Road and 19 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh.
