Subaru Australia has launched the mid-life update of its XV All-Wheel Drive. Every 2021 XV model has new grille, front bumper, foglight surround and alloy wheel designs.
In an interesting move the the XV hybrid range is now offered in two models, the XV Hybrid L and Hybrid S. Both have e-Active Shift Control, which is designed to supports responsive driving.
When S mode is selected in SI-Drive, for responsive driving on winding roads, e-Active Shift Control activates automatically, based on information including accelerator use and the G sensor signal. It deactivates when it assesses normal driving has resumed.
The top of the line XV 2.0i-S AWD and Hybrid S AWD also add driver assist technology, with a front view monitor and side view monitor integrated into the front grille and passenger side door mirror.
Blair Read, General Manager, Subaru Australia, said: “We have a formidable list of technology and cosmetic changes across the XV range, which make already comprehensive specification lists even more feature-packed. “We are also delighted to offer additional choice within the XV Hybrid range, which has drawn considerable interest from both existing Subaru owners and prospects since the initial variant launched early this year.”
