    Subaru XV Gets A New Name


    When the Subaru XV crossover arrives onto our shores sometime next year, it will come with a different name.

    During a presentation at the LA Auto Show this week, Subaru of America's Executive Vice President, Thomas J. Doll confirmed the Impreza-based crossover will be named the Subaru XV Crosstrek, not the Impreza Outback Sport.

    Why the name change? Well there could be two reasons. The first is the Impreza is known as the inexpensive compact car in Subaru's lineup. By separating all the different variants of the Impreza (XV Crosstrek, WRX, and STi), they can charge more for them. Secondly, Subaru has seen good sales results from separating the Legacy and Outback lines.

    The Subaru XV Crosstrek will make it's way to the US in 2012 as a 2013 model.

    with some different styling tweaks that could have been a good replacement for the caliber. (though maybe too high to replace a entry sedan, vs a "cute ute")

    I like it. I hope they stick the 2.5L in it though, because I've heard the new Impreza is rather anemic with the new smaller injun, if they try it in this higher-riding Crosstrek, they'll be asking fer trouble.
