Crossover Impreza for Europe is on show at Geneva
2 March 2010

Subaru has launched an Impreza crossover at the Geneva motor show.

The Subaru Impreza XV will be for Europe only and is likely to be based on the US’s Outback Sport model.

It will get a raised ground clearance, a new front grille and wheelarches, a roof spoiler and roof rails.

The XV will come with either a 2.0-litre petrol or 2.0-litre turbodiesel. Both engines are Euro5-compliant.

No one from Subaru was immediately available for comment on whether the XV will be sold in the UK.

European sales will begin this summer.

Are these plastic-clad specials a lot more popular in mainland Europe?

I can't ever recall seeing a Scenic Conquest, 207 Outdoor, Roomster Scout or Golf Plus Dune; yet they are/were all allegedly on sale in the UK. I seem to recall that Ford offers a Focus X Road (somewhere!), that's never made it to the UK, despite the general popularity of the Focus here.

I quite like the idea that the European car market isn't totally homogenous yet and that we still have quirky local differences.

It just reminds me of the Rover 25 Streetwise, a last ditched attempt to brighten up a dull car and sell a few more!

I remember when Subaru made exciting cars....

    The Seat Leon X-Perience is the closest thing to an SUV that you can buy with a Seat badge for now, blending estate practicality with off-road ability

    Diesel-powered Mazda supermini has gutsy performance, good cruising manners and great economy. A lumpy ride is the major disappointment.

    BMW's facelifted M135i has more power, sharper looks and new technology. The previous version was a belter, so is this new one just as good?
