Subaru Teases Production XV For Geneva: Comments

Recommended Posts


Last year's Geneva Motor Show saw Subaru introduce the XV concept, giving us a preview of what to expect with the next-generation model. Today, Subaru has revealed a teaser for next-generation XV (Crosstrek to us in the states). 

Unlike some of Subaru's past attempts of taking a concept and making into a watered-down production model, the next XV looks to be very faithful to the concept's design. 

Subaru is keeping many details quiet, but we can guess some of them.

  • Using the new platform that underpins the Impreza
  • Power coming for a 2.0L four-cylinder and the choice of either a five-speed manual or CVT
  • Less spartan interior and all new infotainment system

We'll have more details on the XV when it debuts in March.

Yawn, such a small tight cuv. I have friends that love the crosstrek and are small but for peeps over 5'8" tall forget it.  Hopefully they have fixed the interior space.

      Next Tuesday at the LA Auto Show, Subaru will unveil their three-row Ascent crossover. Before then, Subaru has released a teaser photo of the Ascent.
      The photo gives us a good look at the roofline and greenhouse which scream Forester to us. There also appears to be flared fenders up front that were on the Ascent Concept that debuted earlier this year at the New York auto show.
      We know that the Ascent will be underpinned by Subaru's modular Global Platform that underpins the Impreza and Crosstrek.

      When the next-generation Subaru WRX STI arrives sometime in 2020 or so, it will not have the turbocharged 2.5L boxer-four engine. Speaking with Dutch automotive site AutoRAI, Subaru Europe's General Manager of sales and marketing manager David Dello Stritto said the current engine would not be able to meet upcoming emission standards.
      "CO2 emissions are becoming increasingly important and the current 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo boxer engine simply can not continue to be used in the future. We do not say goodbye to the WRX STI, the car belongs to Subaru, but there will be a period where we will temporarily not run WRX STI," explained Dello Stritto.
      We've previously heard that Subaru is considering using a hybrid power for the next WRX and WRX STI. When asked by AutoRAI about this, Dello Stritto said it was "something we have to investigate."
      "Subaru is awaiting what the market developments are, and sets the concept for that."
