Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
When you drive the SUBARU XV, there’s little that can stop you from having a good time. That’s because the SUBARU XV gives you the high ground clearance of an SUV, the low centre of gravity and balance of a sports sedan, and Symmetrical AWD. Matched to the SUBARU BOXER engine for a near-perfect symmetrical layout, it delivers gratifying power with
exceptional traction, providing balance and stability for total control in ever-shifting road conditions. The result is vehicle that gives you peace of mind and confidence like no other–this is the essence of the Subaru driving experience.
Lineartronic + Active Torque Split AWD
The SUBARU XV achieves inspiring levels of response and efficiency with Lineartronic. By keeping the engine running in its optimal rev range and preserving the momentum that’s often lost during a gear shift, this unique transmission dramatically maximises fuel efficiency. Lineartronic is also longitudinally paired with an active torque split AWD system that responds to traction conditions by continuously controlling the torque distribution front to rear.
5- or 6-Speed Manual Transmission + Viscous Centre Differential AWD
Geared for exciting response and control, both the 5- and 6-speed manual transmissions enable you to define your own driving style. They feature Auto Vehicle Hold to help you avoid rolling when starting on a hill. The gearbox is paired with an AWD system utilising a viscous limited-slip centre differential (LSD). Whenever the balance of traction changes, the LSD instantaneously redistributes the torque to the front and rear wheels as needed. And on 1.6-litre model, the Dual-range (Hi/Lo) gearing gives you an added edge in control for extreme situations.
SUBARU BOXER Engine
Few cars deliver the thrilling eagerness and spontaneity of the SUBARU XV. It’s achieved with the horizontally-opposed SUBARU BOXER engine, which places the pistons 180 degrees apart for a lower, flatter profile compared to other engine types. This gives the powerplant — and by
extension the whole car — a lower centre of gravity and more balanced weight distribution. In addition, the pistons’ opposing movements counteract each other, which naturally reduces vibration.
1.6-LITRE DOHC SUBARU BOXER
- Max output 84 kW (114 PS) / 5,600 rpm
- Max torque 150 Nm (15.3 kgfm) / 4,000 rpm
- Fuel consumption 5MT*6.5 lit./100 km
- Fuel consumption Lineartronic*6.3 lit./100 km
- CO2 emissions 5MT*151g / km
- CO2 emissions Lineartronic*146g / km
The engine’s flat design is inherently rigid and self-balancing to achieve durability and reliable performance, generating less vibration than V-type or 4-cylinder in-line engines in the same class.
Because the engine block has a flatter profile and sits lower in the chassis, the overall vehicle is more stably balanced and resistant to side-to-side motion than other designs.
