The XV is the smallest SUV in Subaru’s range, and promises strong off-road ability in a utilitarian package. Rivals include the likes of the Seat Ateca, Toyota C-HR and Mazda CX-3.
The Impreza offers four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox, but is that reason enough to choose it over a Volvo V40, a Skoda Octavia or any number of small SUVs?
The all-new XV aims to offer a genuine crossover experience, with off-road capability and improved behaviour on-road
The Forester has always been a favourite with the Barbour jacket set, but Subaru would prefer it to appeal to a much wider audience. The latest improvements are aimed at making it a more convincing rival to the likes of the Seat Ateca and Honda CR-V.
