Sales of the new Subaru XV in Russia will begin in the second half of 2017

The new generation of compact crossover Subaru XV will appear in the Russian market in the second half of this year. The new generation of the car is created on a fundamentally new global platform; it's not facelift or restyling.

As for the detailed Russian specification for the model - so far there is no information. But it is absolutely certain that it will be a new design: the model has grown in length, width and height. It has a completely different appearance; it is known about two new body colors - orange and bright blue. Representatives of the company said that the new interior of the car will look modern and technologically and will become a source of pride.

The car will have a traditional for Subaru all-wheel drive and a horizontal opposed engine. In this case, the engine of the new XV also awaits an update: at first it will affect only the 2-liter version, and then it will be extended to the whole line.

The novelty will be equipped with the "ERA-GLONASS" system, which Subaru has already started to install for Forester cars, sold in Russia (2017 model year). And during the year the same is planned for Outback and sports WRX STI. And the manufacturer promises that the installation of the "ERA-GLONASS" system will not affect the price of cars.

Subaru doesn’t have plans to expand the Russian line of models, guided by the principle of "doing a minimum, but good" and leaving the crossovers in the foreground yet. However, negotiations about a possible appearance in our country of a 7-seat crossover - a novelty introduced recently in the US market - are still under way. So, Russia already had experience with the 7-seat Tribeca crossover.

As for the opening of its own assembly production in the Russian Federation, the position of the Subaru management is extremely negative: "The closer production, the easier control."
