The verdict on the Subaru XV 2.0i-L CVT from André Edmunds at carsguide.com.au
“The XV invoked mixed emotions. Every time I looked at it, I wanted to go for a drive, yet, every time I drove it, I wanted to park it up and gaze at it. The CVT is targeting the eco-friendly who still want strong looks, practicality and a comfortable drive. To be fair, not everyone is looking for a “driver’s” car, and being mid-sized it’s the ideal vehicle for those that don’t want to stretch into SUV territory. But, it does lack a little heart and soul. And did I mention that engine and transmission noise?
Priced from $38,479 it still represents amazing value, filling the gap perfectly between hatchback and SUV. Personally, I would stretch to the S model with full leather interior and manual gearbox – mainly because I’m a fan both of heated seats and passionate driving. Subaru, please launch an affordable WRX STi variant, they will sell like hot cakes!” | Source
