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 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.
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.
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.
