The Oban Times - - DRIVING FORCE -

• XV gets higher qual­ity in­te­rior in line with new mod­els

• Ma­jor re-tun­ing of chas­sis im­proves ride and han­dling

• NVH mea­sures for more re­fine­ment

• New touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment with voice con­trol and nav­i­ga­tion

Subaru UK has an­nounced a raft of mod­i­fi­ca­tions and up­grades to the in­te­rior and chas­sis of its XV com­pact cross­over. The in­te­rior changes re­sult in fur­ther sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments to cabin re­fine­ment and am­bi­ence.

Boast­ing the low­est cen­tre of grav­ity in the com­pact cross­over class – and the high­est ground clear­ance – changes to the car’s sus­pen­sion have been de­signed to re­sult in a smoother, more com­pli­ant ride but with­out sac­ri­fic­ing any of the sta­bil­ity that the XV is renowned for.

Among the most im­por­tant changes to the up­graded XV is a re­vised in­te­rior, which now fea­tures im­proved ma­te­ri­als and an all-new touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem.

The in­te­rior de­sign now has a higher- qual­ity look and feel thanks to the adop­tion of an all new in­stru­ment bin­na­cle and new metal­lic and pi­ano black ac­cents through­out the cabin for the cen­tral con­sole, dash­board and steer­ing wheel switchgear and arm rests.

Subaru is pleased to an­nounce that the all-new Subaru XV will make its global de­but at the 87th Geneva In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show to be held in Switzer­land on March 7-19, 2017.

Fit­ted with Subaru’s renowned Sym­met­ri­cal All-Wheel Drive sys­tem, XV is a com­pact SUV with a per­son­al­ity packed exterior.

The all-new Subaru XV will be un­veiled at the press con­fer­ence sched­uled for 11am (Cen­tral Euro­pean Time) on March 7 at Subaru booth fol­low­ing a speech by FHI Pres­i­dent and CEO, Ya­suyuki Yoshi­naga.
