A new video starring the revamped Subaru XV has been relased by CarNews. The footage shows us the latest generation of the successful crossover model taking on with ease the snowy roads of the Hochsauerland region, in Germany, making the most out of its advanced four-wheel drive system.
The 2012 Subaru XV comes with a choice of two petrol and one diesel boxer engines: a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol units and a 2.0 diesel powertrain specifically developed for the European market. All variants will be mated to a chain-driven CVT gearbox (Continuously Variable Transmission) which provides for more lightness, compactness, superior fuel efficiency and wide ratio coverage. Fuel efficiency has also been improved through the adoption of Subaru’s advanced new stop-start system, which uses a newly developed “change of mind control” function that can restart the engine within only 0.2 seconds from stopping.
As for the interior, the new XV uses high-quality leather, metal and fabrics, with a Multi-Function Display (MFD) that is placed in the upper middle section of the instrument panel. This device provides the driver with pop-up notifications about the continuous drive time, environmental factors such as outside air temperature or road surface conditions in the cold, and the status of the vehicle’s various systems.
