The Subaru XV 1.6 petrol will now cost from £19,995
The four 1.6-litre petrol variants in the Subaru XV range have been reduced in price by £1300, bringing the cost of the entry-level version of the compact crossover to below £20k for the first time.
Since its launch last year, the Impreza-based 4x4 has ranged in price from £21,295 for the basic 1.6i S model to £24,715 for the 1.6i SE Lineartronic.
Now, the high-riding hatchback will cost between £19,995 and £23,415 when fitted with the smaller of Subaru’s petrol powerplants.
The original UK pricing structure for the XV was impacted by the strong Yen, which pushed up prices for Subaru’s domestic importer, IM Group.
In recent months the Yen’s value has eased, allowing Subaru UK to revise the prices of some variants.
The price reductions do not apply to the 2.0-litre petrol and diesel XV variants, although Subaru UK is offering three years’ interest-free credit on its oil burning models until the end of June.
