Subaru decided to improve the current SV for the 2016 model year. The Japanese crossover benefits new cabin details and some exterior changes. Even so, pricing for the Subaru XV is unchanged for the 2016 model, which goes on sale across the UK next month from £21,995.

Among the most important changes to the upgraded XV is an upgraded interior. It features Subaru’s new factory-fit 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system. Changes include the adoption of new metallic and piano black trim as well as new contrast stitching throughout the cabin. The driver’s TFT LCD instrument binnacle has also been redesigned.

Subaru’s all-new 7.0-inch touchscreen display allows smartphone-style control of the advanced navigation and infotainment features, with a swipe and pinch control function for map displays. The infotainment system houses a standard-fit rear view camera, offering a super-wide 160-degree field of view behind the car when reversing.

The system also enables Apple iPhone users to activate Siri® Eyes-Free functionality, providing full voice control of their iOS mobile device when linked with the new infotainment system.

The 2.0-litre turbodiesel, equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, features a range of updates and longer gear ratios to improve fuel efficiency by 4%. The modified engine, which still produces 147 hp and 350 Nm of torque, achieves 52.3 mpg on the combined cycle, while CO2 emissions fall from 146 to 141 g/km.

Subaru has also introduced a series of updates to the 150 hp 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine which produces 196 Nm of torque. Fuel efficiency increases by 2% to a combined average of 43.5 mpg when equipped with Subaru’s Lineartronic transmission (CVT).
