All-new platform, upgraded interior.

by on Mar.08, 2017

The new Subaru XV will come to the U.S. as the next-generation Crosstrek.

The brand that helped launch the crossover-utility explosion is hoping to gain even more momentum with the Geneva Motor Show debut of the next-generation Subaru XV.

The new model doesn’t stray far from last year’s XV Concept – and it will reappear in near identical form at the upcoming New York International Auto Show, albeit wearing the Subaru Crosstrek badge.

Product News!

The 2018 Subaru XV-cum-Crosstrek rides on an entirely new platform, but what will likely appeal most to buyers around the world are the improvements to both cabin refinement, as well as the range of new comfort and safety equipment promised by Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, the President and CEO of what is being renamed Subaru Corporation.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek will make its U.S. debut at the New York Auto Show in April.

Arguably no automaker has a longer, deeper history in the crossover segment than Subaru, the Japanese maker that helped change the game with the launch of its original Outback model in 1994.

How things have changed – and how they’re about to change even more, if this teaser image is any indication. It landed in our e-mail inbox along with confirmation that the next-generation Subaru Crosstrek will make its debut at the 2017 General Motor Show just a little more than a month from now.

Auto Show News!

Officials details are limited, Subaru confirming only that the next Crosstrek – also known as XV outside the U.S., will be introduced on March 7 by Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, the president and CEO of Subaru’s parent Fuji Heavy Industries.

Is Subaru's new XV the next U.S. Impreza?

Some big changes are coming at Subaru – as it has revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.

The Japanese maker’s much anticipated rear-drive sports car still isn’t quite ready for primetime, though it generated much chatter at both the Subaru and Toyota stands – the latter maker helping develop the Miata-class 2-seater.

Stay in the Know!

But what Subaru did have to reveal in the form of the new XV was arguably of even more significance as it could replace the long-lived Impreza, which is itself the foundation of products like the WRX.

And the changes will extend will below the skin, the maker confirmed, with an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged direct injection boxer-four engine coming for the line-up.

Production version of concept shown in Shanghai.

Subaru offers a tease of the new XV crossover.

Automakers are beginning to sketch out the details of what they have coming for the Frankfurt Motor Show next month – quite literally in the case of Subaru, which is offering us this teaser rendering of the new XV.

A concept version of the new crossover made its debut at the Shanghai Motor Show, earlier in the year.  The upcoming German event will bring the introduction of the production Subaru XV, which will serve as the replacement for the maker’s current Impreza Outback Sport model – at least in Europe and China. Exactly what that means for U.S. buyers remains to be seen.

The Inside Story!

The automotive arm of Fuji Heavy Industries is holding back the details, but the production XV is likely to mimic the dimensions of the concept shown in Shanghai.  It was slightly longer and about an inch taller than the current Impreza Outback Sport – though it shared the production models all-wheel-drive system.
