As the Subaru XV MY 16 models have started to arrive in dealerships, many drivers have been curious about how it differs from previous models and if the new Subaru XV 2016 Australia spec is radically different from the details released for other global markets.


The Stand Out Features:

With the new Subaru XV 2016, Australia drivers are likely to immediately notice the elevated drive position. This is typical with a small SUV, but what differs in the XV is that the vehicle performs like the impressive hatchback it was based on. Stand out features include plastic lower body cladding, funky wheels, and a more distinct colour palette, which adds personality and panache. Additionally, as with most of the Subaru range, the XV also features all wheel drive, which can increase control in all road conditions.

Gear and Gadgets:

The XV has an impressive range of gear and gadgets. It has climate control air conditioning and cruise control as standard. Additionally, the touchscreen provides a display for the infotainment system, while steering wheel mounted controls allow you to control audio settings and Bluetooth connectivity. The model also has Hill Start Assist to automatically operate the brakes and make hill starts easier, 17 inch alloy wheels, reverse camera, seven airbags and electronic stability control.

The model is available in ten pearl, silica, and metallic colours at no additional cost. The XV is available in some very vibrant shades including the vivid Tangerine Orange Pearl.


The XV is equipped with a four cylinder 2.0 litre petrol engine which is paired with either a manual six speed transmission or continuously variable automatic transmission. The automatic variants deliver fuel economy of 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres on a combined cycle. The manual variants have slightly higher consumption with figures of 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres.

However, fuel consumption in the city is reduced by the automatic stop start technology. This system shuts the engine off when your stop and automatically restarts when you push the accelerator to begin to drive away.

The engine is horizontally opposed, which places the weight lower and improves the responsiveness of the steering.

Safety Features:

In addition to the reverse camera, seatbelt reminders, and seven airbags, the XV is packed with safety features. The model has been awarded the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Even in tight corners, the forward position of the A pillars allows for excellent vision to improve safety.

Cabin Comfort:

Inside the XV cabin, there is lots of space for all passengers. The rear seats can comfortably accommodate three passengers, and there is plenty of shoulder, leg and foot room thanks to a well angled base.
