Subaru XV deals: car deal of the week

You can now get a new Subaru XV SUV from just £18,995

There is now an impressive £2,300 off the entire Subaru XV range, meaning prices now start from just £18,995.

All models come with four-wheel drive for go-anywhere ability and a handy five-year warranty. Models with a manual gearbox come with hill-hold assist, which stops you rolling back on a steep hill, while top-spec LUX models get keyless entry and push-button start.

There’s a choice of three engines in the XV range, the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrols and a 2.0-litre diesel, plus manual or CVT automatic gearbox.

Despite being designed mainly for town and motorway driving, all models come with permanent four-wheel drive, which provides that essential bit of extra grip in bad conditions like heavy rain and snow.

The XV certainly drives well, with light steering and impressive body control for a tall SUV-style car. It handles fast driving well, and feels smooth and comfortable on bumpy and rutted British roads.

There’s loads of space in the rear, with the legroom particularly amplified by the concave shape of the front seats. With the rear seats in place the XV offers 380-litres of boot space, while with them flat this expands to 1,270-litres. Access is well designed in the XV, too, with wide door openings and a big boot opening. What's more, the leading edge of the boot can be lifted and hooked to the lip of the tailgate to create a ramp for sliding luggage into the boot.

Subaru has a reputation for building reliable SUVs and the XV is no exception – with a well put-together interior it’s sure to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. There’s also a good selection of safety kit, including ABS, traction control, seven airbags and retractable pedals that move in the event of an accident. It was awarded the full five stars in Euro NCAP crash safety tests, and scored 90 per cent in the child occupation protection section.

The 2.0-litre diesel will return 50.4mpg and emit 146g/km of CO2, while the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre petrol models emit 151g/km and 160g/km respectively.
