Auto Express - - New cars -

SUBARU has im­proved the XV in lots of ways, but un­for­tu­nately most of the gains come in ar­eas where it was al­ready strong any­way. It’s now even more ca­pa­ble off road, bet­ter to drive on it, and safer than ever, all of which is great news for ex­ist­ing own­ers who want to up­date. But po­ten­tial new cus­tomers prob­a­bly won’t be won over by the car, be­cause it still lags be­hind ri­vals when it comes to re­fine­ment, value for money and fuel econ­omy. That means it’s likely to re­main a de­cid­edly left­field choice in the UK.
