Subaru Teases Next Crosstrek with XV Concept

SUV show car is longer, wider, lower.

by on Mar.01, 2016

The Subaru XV Concept will strongly influence the next Crosstrek model.

Subaru has long been known for building solid, go-anywhere vehicles, but not necessarily for giving them the sort of upscale feel that has become increasingly common on even today’s entry-level models.

That’s beginning to change, as the maker has demonstrated with recent additions and updates like the latest Legacy. Now, it’s getting ready to a bit more style and panache to its Crosstrek line – or so we anticipate from the Subaru XV Concept making it debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

“In the area of functionality essential to a Subaru car, excellent aerodynamic performance is teamed with the ample road clearance and luggage space required of a crossover vehicle, achieving blend of function and style,” the Japanese maker says.

Subaru on Track for Another Record Year

New products critical to growth.

The new Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid at its NY Auto Show debut last week.

Subaru is on track for its sixth consecutive year of increased demand – and another annual record, according to its new U.S. president.

The little maker defied the industry trends by posting a string of sales increases even during the worst automotive downturn since the Great Depression. It has gained even more momentum since the U.S. automotive market began to rebound three years ago. For 2012, Subaru sold 336,441 units: a 26% increase compared with the previous year.

Tom Doll, promoted last month from COO to President of Subaru of America, said during a press conference at the New York International Auto Show that sales have gotten off to another strong start in 2013, lifting expectations for another year of record sales. Since 2007, Subaru is the only carmaker to post a continuous string of sales increases over the last five years.

Subaru Bringing New XV Crosstrek to U.S. Market

“Next-generation crossover” to debut in New York.

by on Mar.23, 2012

Subaru will introduce the new XV Crosstrek at the NY Auto Show next month.

Subaru is bringing its “next-generation crossover,” the new XV Crosstrek, to the U.S. market and will give potential American buyers a closer look at the New York Auto Show next month.

The latest crossover in the Japanese maker’s expanding line-up will share its basic underpinnings with the latest-generation Impreza.  But the CUV will get a bit more ground clearance improving its off-road capability – or at least its ability to maneuver through snowstorms and other suburban hazards.

The Final Word!

The Subaru XV Crosstrek will feature four-wheel independent suspension and will share the symmetrical all-wheel-drive system offered in all Subaru products save the maker’s new BRZ sports coupe – the latter developed as part of a joint venture with Toyota.
