Review Summary
If you're lifestyle includes roughing it off the main road and towing on a regular basis, the XV is made of sterner stuff than anything from the likes of Ford, Nissan, Audi, BMW, Kia and Hyundai.

The Subaru XV is a safe and capable crossover that's good fun to drive.

Review Summary
Tough and indefatigable, the XV will appeal to Subaru’s existing bucolic customer – but it’s too rough and ready to win success more broadly.

Review Summary
The XV actually offers its fair share of plus points and if it was kept more up-to-date over the years then it may still be a genuine crossover competitor. However, with countless competitors in the market, the smaller details simply cannot be ignored.

Parkers
Review Summary
Off-road, the XV claws back some lost ground with a high ground clearance that makes it more than capable on the rough stuff. We tested the car on extreme ruts, bumps, lumpy tracks and all types of mud-laden surfaces and it coped extremely well – certainly better than many of its rivals would.

With a practical interior, stylish design and strong 4x4 credentials, the Subaru XV makes an interesting SUV/crossover choice.

Review Summary
No-nonsense compact SUV that feels genuinely rugged and tough, but it’s expensive.

Review Summary
After the BRZ, this is the most interesting car Subaru makes. But then that's not really saying much.

The Subaru XV isnt without its merits, but its difficult to make a case for it at this price.
