Info

Subaru's popular compact crossover XV now comes with a new powertrain, the e-BOXER, which combines an electric motor with two of Subaru's core technologies: the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

Built on the Subaru Global Platform, a cutting-edge re-design of the body and chassis, XV offers advanced safety performance and a dynamic driving experience. Plus, XV e-BOXER is as safe as ever with EyeSight driver assist technology and Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection standard across the range. Chosen by customers who trust it to be safe, capable and reliable: XV preserves Subaru's heritage and marks the future of ‘Confidence in Motion' with e-BOXER.

XV e-BOXER combines a 2.0 direct injection horizontally opposed petrol engine with an electric motor. A lithium-ion battery unit is mounted within the boot floor and allows for pure-electric driving at speeds of up to 25mph. Making hybrid the Subaru way, the new technology used in the XV e-BOXER design is arranged in a symmetrical layout (the heavy motor is placed near the vehicle's centre of gravity and the battery is positioned above the rear axle) which plants the car on the road giving noticeable handling improvements and maintaining Subaru's unique balanced weight distribution. XV e-BOXER has a natural braking feel and offers a seamless transition between EV and Engine driving.

Built with 220mm of ground clearance, permanent Symmetrical All Wheel Drive as standard and X-Mode to tackle the most extreme weather and road conditions, XV e-BOXER combines impressive traction with a 1270kg towing capacity making it perfectly suited to any on or off-road adventures.

EyeSight driver assist technology functions optically using two stereo cameras which are mounted either side of the rear-view mirror. It monitors for hazards up to 110 metres ahead and includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Sway and Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist and Lead Vehicle Start Alert.

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection identifies vehicles approaching from the rear. It offers three main functions to improve visibility and to help minimise common causes for accidents: Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

XV e-BOXER benefits from a new front grille design with active grille shutter and the new low-profile roof rails have an aerodynamic design. The exterior has received other discreet upgrades including a new fog lamp bezel which surrounds the LED fog lights, the rear spoiler end plate is finished in gloss black and an e-Boxer badge has been added to the wings and tailgate. XV e-BOXER is very well specified with Keyless Entry and Push Button Start System, LED headlights equipped with high beam assist, privacy glass on the rear windows and 18” alloy wheels standard across the range.

Incorporating all of the comfort and convenience you would expect in a compact crossover, XV e-Boxer has an intuitive 8″ multifunction colour touchscreen that is easy to use and contains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity. Dual zone air-conditioning, reversing camera and heated seats are also standard but customers can upgrade to the SE Premium if they wish to add leather seats, 8-way power adjustable driver seat, satellite navigation and sunroof.

Priced from £30,995 ($40,294) OTR, XV e-Boxer is available in nine colours and is in dealerships now.
