Subaru XV Concept
19th April, 2011
Subaru today unveiled their XV Concept cross-over car at
the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show (China).
The bold, fashionable, fun-themed design is a progression of Subaru’s long-running sports utility
Underpinned by a horizontally opposed Boxer engine and symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Subaru XV
Concept is a solid yet stylish package.
It features Subaru’s new hexagonal grille design with winged motif and hawk-eye headlights.
The black lower bumper and wheel arch protection, combined with the car’s metallic highlights,
underline its cross-over status.
The distinctive five-spoke alloy wheel design features silver spokes, black rims and clear blue centre
caps, complementing the car’s strength and road presence.
The XV concept roof features a continuous glass sheet, while metallic and clear-finish roof rails are
another positive visual cue.
A light interior leather treatment contrasts with the darker tones of other cabin features.
A large touch panel multi-function display in the centre panel enables easy navigation and audio
control while displaying vehicle information.
Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “XV Concept clearly flags Subaru’s
intentions to capture even more of the cross-over market in the future and this stunning new design no
doubt provides some clues as to what we may expect.”
“Sub-Compact SUVs are a growing opportunity and XV Concept is the type of vehicle that will attract
even more customers.”
