10 August 2011

Subaru parent company Fuji Heavy Industries has confirmed that a production version of the Subaru XV crossover concept will be shown at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

The Subaru XV “defines a whole new generation of Subaru crossover vehicle,” according to the firm and “remains true to the concept” shown at the Shanghai motor show in April this year.

The company is also confident that it will bring “something fresh, as well as a new level of engineering excellence, to the segment.”

It’ll “bring a new type of customer to the brand,” the firm added, thanks to Subaru’s all-wheel drive system and the “flexibility and lifestyle statement that owning a crossover brings”.

The car is expected to launch in the UK in early 2012.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
