Subaru Impreza XV Unveiled
10th March, 2010
Subaru unveiled the latest variant in its Symmetrical
All-Wheel Drive Impreza range, the Impreza XV hatch, at the Geneva Motor Show.
It combines agile road performance with the recreational styling that made the earlier generation
Impreza RV and Sportswagon major Subaru successes in Australia.
Subaru Impreza XV will be launched in Australia in the third quarter of the year, with the 2.0 litre
four-cylinder horizontally opposed Boxer engine shared with the Impreza R, RX and RS.
Australian versions will be optimised for local conditions by having a greater ride height than the
European specification cars shown in Geneva.
Among the features unique to Impreza XV are wheel arch extensions, roof rails, grille, and interior
Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia, said: “We’re delighted to be adding the Impreza
XV to our range mid-year.”
“This is an exciting model for us because it will broaden our appeal, particularly with younger
audiences looking for a car that combines fun and safety.”
“The current generation Impreza is the best seller of any to date and we’re confident that Impreza
XV will add to that success, given the earlier achievements of recreation-themed versions of the
Pricing and volume expectations will be announced at a later date.
